The Jodi Arias case was among one of the most popular cases in America in 2015. How could someone so innocent looking do such a heinous crime?
The Tuen Mun rapist terrorized the entire city for 16 months, starting from April 1992 to April 1993. When he was arrested, he was arrested and convicted of ten rapes and three counts of murder.
We are all guilty of something at some point it seems. In my case, it was drinking and driving. Not my finest of decisions. Unfortunately, I do not remember much from that night. Everything seems blurred together and vague.
In the first part of this Serial Killer File we look at the early life and family of Jeffrey Dahmer, The Milwaukee Cannibal, asking the question: what drove him to the crimes that he is well known for to this day?
Everyone knows who Ted Bundy was; one of the most prolific serial killers in history. He was born on November 24, 1946 and was finally placed in the electric chair on January 24, 1989 after confessing to raping and murdering at least 30 young women from 1974 until 1978. His victims often said he was a charismatic and handsome man who often used an injury to lure women to his Volkswagen beetle before brutally attacking them. In addition to the 30 women he confessed to murdering, he is suspected to up to 100 more, but they have not been confirmed.
Last night, I watched an episode of 999: What’s Your Emergency? while working on one of my many literary projects. I’m not usually that interested in mainstream TV, but tonight’s episode covered underage criminals, and this was something of a hot topic where I grew up. Basically, the area was rough as fuck, and gangs of out-of-control children roamed the streets, vandalising and stealing stuff and starting fights with strangers. And these were children. Not even teenagers, but kids. As a result of my experiences growing up, I still have a fear of groups of young people. I’ve been primed to expect danger. Even living nowadays in an inner-city area, that sort of trouble is unthinkable to most people that I know—and yet on the council estates that we choose to forget, this is everyday life.
Clowns. To some they're joyous characters who entertain children, to others they're terrifying monsters. With horror films such as Clown and the 2017 remake of IT, it's no wonder why some people might find clowns scary.
Mind control. Thought manipulation. Brainwashing. It's all terminology that people hear in the movies. But what if this isn't a movie? What if there was a man who was able to command people into killing without doing any of the dirty work himself? This man existed and he was the leader of one of the most dangerous cults of all time. Meet Charles Manson.

This article is not for the faint of heart. Just to throw this out there… I don’t have a morbid fascination for serial killers. But I do have to study them for my psychology classes because of the field of work that I would like to enter into. Anyways; let’s get started!
Over the years the world has evolved and during this evolution practices and views have changed to fit the times. During this time capital punishment has remained the same in some places. Capital punishment is defined as being an order issued by the legal system to punish a convicted criminal to punishment by death. Some people believe capital punishment should be abolished, while others believe it should remain the way it is. This type of punishment has claimed the lives of many innocent people. Causing hurt amongst families, mistrust against the judicial system, and drastic life altering circumstances for those wrongly accused. Not to mention how the actual criminal is still in the community waiting for his or her moment to strike again.
