Golden State Killer
Early Life Joseph James DeAngelo was born in 1945 in the suburbs of Sacramento. He joined the military and served in Vietnam for 22 months before coming home as a decorated vet. He attended Sierra College where he earned his bachelor's degree in criminal justice in 1972. After graduating, he went on to become a police officer in Exeter, California from 1973 to 1976 and then joined the Auburn police force from 1976 to 1979. Many of his co-workers described him as the 'average joe' and an upstanding guy whose passion was to "serve the community". Unfortunately, his experience in the police force and military, aided him in avoiding persecution for more than 40 years.
Disappearance of Shane Walker and Christopher Dansby
In August of 1989, Rosa Glover took her 19 month old son, Shane Walker, to a playground in Harlem near the Martin Luther King Jr. Towers housing projects where they lived. She sat on a park bench while Shane played. Two kids then came over asking if they could play with him, which she thought was weird because they were 5 and 10 years old, quite a bit older than Shane was. She let them play together when a man came up and sat on the bench with her. Immersed in conversation, Rosa took her eyes off Shane for only a couple minutes. When she turned back around, she did not see him anywhere. She searched frantically for him in that park as well as a nearby park, but could not find him anywhere. When she returned to the park he disappeared from, she saw the two children he was playing with, but they said they had no idea where he was. When police came and spoke with other witnesses, they said they were looking for an African American man about 19-24 years old wearing a yellow shirt and acid-washed jeans.
The Disappearance of Susan Cox Powell
It was December 6, 2009 when Susan Cox Powell was last seen alive. She had attended church with her two young children and was last seen when her neighbor left her house that evening around 5:00 PM. The next day she did not make it to work and the boys did not attend daycare. When Susan and Josh did not answer the phone the next day, family members called the police to report them missing. Fearing the family had been victims of carbon monoxide poisoning, the responding officers kicked in the door to their home only to find no one was there. Susan's wallet and identification were left behind and there were two box fans blowing on a newly cleaned couch.
Pizza Delivery Bomber
A new documentary has been released on Netflix in 2018 about a 2003 bank robbery in Erie, Pennsylvania. There has never been a bank robbery quite like this one.

Brian Wells was a pizza delivery driver, and on August 28, 2003 he delivered a pizza to a cell tower where he had the bomb strapped to him. He was instructed to rob a bank and bring back a quarter of a million dollars.
Lack of remorse. Impulsivity. Superficial charm. Pathological lying. These are all signs of psychopathic tendencies. But what makes someone a psychopath? What causes someone to one day just snap and do the unspeakable? We honestly may never know, but studies are constantly being done to observe what goes on in someone's life to cause them to have these sort of tendencies. Not all psychopaths are criminals; it is a personality disorder that many people actually use to increase their success. Although not everyone with psychopathic traits are criminals, they are more likely to commit crimes than the general population because they have no remorse and are guiltless. They also have a lack of impulse control, so when they have a desire to do something, even if it is illegal, they have to do it.
