‘Killer Couples’ to feature Abilene duo convicted of killing police officer Don Allen

The murder of an Abilene police officer by a husband and wife will be featured on the television show “Killer Couples.”

The Oxygen Network will broadcast the episode about Phillip and Violet Walter at 8 p.m. Monday.

Trigger Warning with Killer Mike is a new Netflix original documentary series that is innovative, impressive and incredibly thought-provoking. If anyone (aside from Killer Mike himself) stands out in this six-part series, it would be Mario Pagan.

Mario appeared in three episodes of the series, first showing up as part of a focus group in the episode titled White Gang Privilege.

When the idea for “Crip-a-Cola” was first introduced to the group, everyone in the room loved the idea. Of course, they didn’t know the name of the drink or the group behind it yet.

When they learned the name of the new soda being taste tested, everyone balked. No one thought walking down the street with a gang-affiliated soft drink was a good idea and none were more

Who Is The Green River Killer? How Detectives Played Into Gary Ridgway’s Personality To Prompt 48 Murder …

The Green River Killer evaded police for dozens of years before being caught and convicted of 48 murders in 2001. FBI profiler Mary Ellen O’Toole was a part of the team that finally forced confessions from him, a job which proved to be a daunting team effort, which took months. The extravagant interview tactics chosen by the team of detectives is shown in Saturday’s episode of Criminal Confessions, and footage from the months-long interrogation is spotlighted to show how truly trying the interactions were.

O’Toole was brought in when it became clear the Green River Killer, or Gary Ridgway, was not going to reveal necessary details, like the burial locations of his victims, on his own accord. She’s trained to interact with serial killers by casing their personalities: Ridgway had the shared characteristics of psychopathic personalities, including pathological lying and extreme narcissism.
