The Only Survivor of the Derrick Todd Lee Murders

The author’s description: Divine Justice: The Dianne Alexander Story is inspired by an actual event. It gives in depth details about my encounter with The Southwest Louisiana Serial Killer “Derrick Todd Lee.” But most of all, the book speaks about divine interventions from the beginning to the end of my horrible ordeal. I pray that this book will help you to see that God is a God of “Love and Forgiveness.”

Harlan native wins lead film role

Harlan County horror movie fans have a special treat to look forward to soon. A hometown girl has earned the lead role in an upcoming horror feature.

Harlan native Ashe Parker has secured the lead role – her first – in an upcoming horror sequel currently shooting under the title D.F.I.T.W. The film began shooting in Ohio this week.

Parker explained how she landed the job.

“I was actually looking at another director’s projects,” Parker said. “He mentioned the director of this film, Shawn Burkett, may need someone, so I contacted the director personally.”

Parker said Burkett was also considering an actress from Los Angeles for the role when she contacted him.

“They offered the role to me, and I’m really excited about it,” Parker said. “I’ve always wanted to be in a horror film.”

Parker will fill the role of Nurse Vanessa, the head nurse at a summer camp.

“We’ll be filming on location in Oxford,

This week: Queer Eye, The Profit, MDL:NY, Alone, and many other shows return this week

MDLYN, Steven Gold, Fredrik Eklund, Ryan Serhant


Summer has arrived, the days are long, I’m sweating, and reality television offers plenty of reasons to stay inside: almost 20 reality shows debut or return this week.

Let’s start with Gordon Ramsay, who ended his show Kitchen Nightmares four years ago but is now back with a show that sounds surprisingly similar: To Hell and Back (Fox, Wednesdays at 9), on which he tries to rescue restaurants in less than a day. I’ll have a review Wednesday.

Netflix’s successful and emotional reboot of  Queer Eye is out with its second season on Friday.

Alone (History, Thursdays at 10) returns for its first all-star season, with returning participants trying to outlast each other in Mongolia. Look for

‘The Price of Duty’ First Look: See How Real-Life Detectives Deal With the Stress of Solving Tough Cases

You’ve seen how tough criminal cases affect the victims, but what about the detectives tasked with solving them?

That’s the question posed by Oxygen’s new series, The Price of Duty, premiering Monday night. The show follows dedicated detectives across the country as they recall their most complex cases and how their work impacted their personal lives. Adding color to the stories will be the detectives’ families, the victims’ families and other law enforcement involved. Think of this as the real-life Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, and these law enforcement officers as the real-life Olivia Bensons.

The Price of Duty promises to go where no true-crime show has gone before, granting unprecedented access to the people who worked on some of the most infamous cases in America, including the Erie, Pennsylvania, “Pizza Bomber,” which was also the focus of the Netflix documentary, Evil Genius: The True Story of America’s Most

Johnsonville Sausage Factory Worker Allegedly Put Wire Connector And Cigarette Papers Into Food

You really don’t want to know how these sausages were made.

A Johnsonville Sausage factory work in Wisconsin allegedly stuffed a wire connector and cigarette papers into food on the job, authorities said.

Jonathan Lane allegedly put cigarette paper into one piece of meat on March 25 at the Sheboygan Falls factory, and the wire connector into another sausage link three days later, the U.S. Department of Justice said.

In both cases, Lane alerted his bosses that he discovered contaminated pieces of meat, and the plant had to be closed to remove any affected products.

But surveillance footage allegedly revealed it was Lane who sullied the sausages. The sausages in question never left the facility.

Lane told investigators that if he lost track of the soiled sausages he would have “prayed to God” that a machine or someone else would have noticed it, according to WBAY in Green Bay.

Lane has been charged with two counts of tampering with a consumer
