Serial Killer Admits On ‘Criminal Confessions’: ‘Honestly, I Wanted To See Her Femur’

An episode of Criminal Confessions reveals the moments that serial killer Sean Vincent Gillis confessed to killing and mutilating eight women between 1994 and 2003 in Baton Rouge.

Even though police had DNA evidence linking Gillis to three of the victims, they wanted a confession out of him.

“I’ve been doing this since 1978 and you are one of the best, if not the best I’ve ever seen.”Maj. Bryan White, chief of detectives for the East Baton Rouge Police told the serial killer, in hopes of getting him to open up. Police said Gillis wanted respect so their strategy was to play up that authorities were “impressed” with his work. That strategy appeared to be effective. Eventually Gillis referred to himself as a monster.

“Tell me about this monster,” White said gently.

“One minute you’re a person like you are. The next minute you’re not.”

“I think you’re tired of this monster,” White said.

“You have no

Local author digs deep into historical mysteries

Author Cheryl Honigford at the Chicago Literary Fest signing copies of her novel The Darkness Knows, and displaying an advance copy of her new novel Homicide for the Holidays was released Oct. 10 (Submitted/The Report).

By Sandra Landen Machaj

When we read a work of published writing, we often think that the author is someone special, unlike the everyday people living in our neighborhood with a family and a full time job.

In reality, most authors are special, but they also may be our next door neighbor, who like you, spend their days caring for their family and working a full time job.

It is after these everyday responsibilities are complete, that they begin to write. Many retire to their computer to make the magic words that will become their next work appear on the screen.

One such author is Cheryl Honigford, an Antioch resident.

"Criminal Confessions" spotlights Waterloo murder investigation

KWWL –

The Oxygen network t.v. show “Criminal Confessions” is taking a closer look at a double murder that happened in Waterloo ten years ago. 

The episode, “An Informant,” revolves around the Waterloo Police Department’s work in solving the case. 

Both Ronald Scullark Junior and Annisa Schroeder were shot and killed in broad daylight in November 2007. 

The shows producers came to Waterloo this past spring to interview Waterloo Police Investigators who worked on the case. Investigator Lynn Moller, who’s now retired, remembers the case standing out from the ones he’s worked on in his 35 years at the department. 

“It wasn’t in the East side of Waterloo in an alley at 3:30 in the morning,” said Moller. “So that’s what set it apart-the wheres and the whens and broad daylight. It was a beautiful sunshine day in November. Cold, but it was

TBI Weekly: Uncertainty ahead for DHX

teletubbiesAfter weak quarterly financials, Canada’s DHX Media is eyeing a sale or merger of the business, which owns kids hits from the Teletubbies to In the Night Garden. The move was a shock to the wider children’s TV community.

The Canadian company’s revenue of C$298.7 million (US$239 million) missed analysts lowest estimates for its fourth quarter results. DHX CEO Dana Landry said that the Teletubbies particularly had underperformed for the business.

To maximise its shareholder value, its board of directors may provide options such as “the sale of part of or all of the company”, an asset sale,“a merger or other business combination with another party, or other strategic transactions”.

DHX was formed in 2006 when Decode Entertainment merged with Halifax Film Company. It has a library of 13,000 half-hours of shows including Degrassi, Caillou and Inspector Gadget.
