Green River Killer on TV: ‘Nothing remarkable at all about him’ to suggest he was violent

One of Washington’s most notorious serial killers will be featured Saturday (Nov. 24) on “Criminal Confessions,” a documentary series that focuses on police interrogations.

Gary Ridgway, the Green River Killer, now 69, has been interrogated countless times since he was first arrested in 2001.

Although Ridgway was convicted of killing 49 women, officials estimate the number is between 60 and 80.

“There was nothing remarkable at all about him to suggest that he could be a violent offender at the level that he was,” Mary Ellen O’Toole, an FBI profiler who first interviewed Ridgeway in 2003, told Fox News. “Nothing.”

Louise Turpin’s Sister Opens Up About Family And Alleged ‘House Of Horrors’

On January 14, 2018, a 17-year-old girl escaped her family home in Perris, California, and called 911 to report that she and her 12 siblings were being held captive by their parents, 49-year-old Louise Turpin and 56-year-old David Turpin. When police arrived at the home, they found several children shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks, and they appeared to be “malnourished and very dirty.” According to a press release from the sheriff’s department, investigators were shocked to learn that the siblings ranged in age from 2 to 29, because the older siblings were emaciated and did not appear to be adults.

While many disturbing details about the California “House of Horrors” have emerged over the past few months, many are still wondering what led to the decades of alleged abuse. Louise’s sister Teresa Robinette is asking herself that same question, and it’s one she hopes will be answered

Suge Knight: Five Facts About Death Row Records Founder Facing …

There would be no gangsta rap without Marion “Suge” Knight — but the law, and his health, are catching up with him. 

Once called “the most feared man in hip- hop” by Rolling Stone, the founder of Death Row Records helped propel the careers of West Coast rap stars like Snoop Dogg, Tupac Shakur and Dr. Dre. A former professional football player, Suge was known for his imposing stature and gangster persona. He was often seen around his native Los Angeles wearing blood red suits and holding a cigar in his hand. For him, loyalty was mandatory.

“Death Row is a way of life,” Knight explained to the New York Times in 1996. “It’s an all-the-time thing. And ain’t nobody gonna change that.”

But Knight, 52, is in a grim third act. He’s incarcerated and awaiting a trial on accusations that he ran over two men in 2015, killing one. His health problems have haunted him while

Killer Clown Suspect Drunkenly Bragged About 1990 Killing Of Lover’s Wife, Documents Show

A woman suspected of dressing as a clown to murder her lover’s wife 27 years ago drunkenly bragged to coworkers about the killing — one of many details that helped investigators finally crack the cold case, documents revealed Thursday.

A dump of nearly 3,000 records from Palm Beach County prosecutors shed new light on how investigators last year arrested Sheila Keen-Warren for the killing in 1990.

Keen-Warren, 54, has been indicted on a first-degree murder charge for the death of Marlene Warren, the former wife of Michael Warren — who is now Keen-Warren’s husband. Prosecutors said last year they will seek the death penalty for Keen-Warren if she is convicted.

Keen-Warren is accused of arriving at Marlene Warren’s Wellington home on May 26, 1990, dressed in an orange wig, red nose and high-top shoes, holding carnations and two balloons. Keen-Warren allegedly handed the gifts to Warren without a word, shot her in the
