New disturbing details are emerging about the school shooting that took two lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico two months ago. William Atchison, 21, attacked Aztec High School on Dec. 7, killing two teens before turning a gun on himself.
In death, markings left on his body are giving investigators some insight into the shooter’s ideations. A 25-page report has just been released on Atchison’s body by The Office of the Medical Investigator. According to the report, Atchison bore both a swastika and the letters “SS,” an abbreviation for part of the Nazi Party, on his leg, KRQE reports.

In 2007, OJ Simpson got a call from Tom Riccio, a collectibles broker who had worked with Simpson in the past. He informed Simpson that a couple of dealers had some of OJ’s personal property that went missing or were stolen from him.
“OJ was both angered and excited that a lot of his stuff he’d been looking for for many years was back in his grasp,” Riccio says during the series premiere of Mysteries Scandals. “He wanted it back. He came up with the idea to tell them that we had a rich OJ fan that wanted to buy this stuff. And that he would go there and try to get it back himself.”
Eventually Riccio and Simpson showed up to the Las Vegas hotel room where the infamous crime went down. Riccio secretly recorded the entire event to cover

Oxygen’s new docuseries Criminal Confessions explores the psychological face-off between investigators and suspects inside the interrogation room. In each hour-long episode, viewers hear from real-life detectives, who explain what it takes to get a culprit to finally admit to their crime. Sgt. Brian Harris of Houston, TX — who appears on the show — spoke exclusively with In Touch and revealed the secret to a successful confession.
“The biggest challenge is developing a story to help the person have that ‘Aha!’ moment in a way that will let them see that it is to their advantage to make an admission. It is always a self- serving admission,” Brian told us. “You have to keep in mind I never make them do anything; it is always their choice and that is what is so powerful about their own words.”
He added, “Any admission or any confession is verbal suicide.

Matthew James Phelps, 28, called police and confusedly confessed to murdering his wife, later saying he was under the influence of cough syrup. After giving his name, address and phone number, he said, “I think I killed my ..,” before trailing off, according to the Raleigh News Observer.

“I had a dream and then I turned on the lights and she’s dead on the floor,” Matthew told police. “There’s blood all over me, and there’s a bloody knife on the bed. I think I did it.”

There have been new developments in the investigation into the death of a 6-year-old-boy whose body was found in a Seattle area dumpster Tuesday. The child, Dayvid Pakko, was reported missing just a day earlier.
Police are now saying that Pakko was drowned in a bathtub by his 19-year-old relative, according to the Seattle Times. The name of the male relative has not been released to the public. The Snohomish County Sheriff’s office did confirm that he has been arrested.
“There is evidence that the boy was a victim of homicide,” a spokesperson from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s office told the Seattle Times.
According to KIRO-7, the relative admitted to drowning the child in a bathtub, putting him in a cardboard box, and putting that box in a dumpster.
The suspect allegedly filled a bathtub with water with the intention of drowning Pakko. Then, he lured the boy to the bathroom,

A Georgia father was charged in the death of a 2-week-old infant girl whose remains were found abandoned in the woods after she was killed by blunt force head trauma, The Rockdale Citizen reported.
Newton County Coroner ruled infant Caliyah McNabb’s death a homicide.
The infant girl was reported missing by her parents Chris McNabb and Courtney Bell on Saturday morning. The parents told police that Caliyah was fed at 5 a.m., at which point the couple went back to sleep.
When the parents woke back up at 10 a.m., they said they found that the infant girl was missing.
The Newton County’s Sheriff’s Office searched through a park on Saturday and Sunday, eventually discovering the child’s body wrapped in cloth inside a duffel bag that was hidden under a log in the woods.
At this discovery, Chris McNabb jumped out of a car and ran away. A food store clerk later called police

A 97-page deposition obtained by CNN reveals details about the life of Stephen Paddock, the murderer behind the deadliest mass shooting in American history. In the documents, Paddock is revealed to have been a high-stakes gambler with a paranoiac and miserly streak.
The document comes by way of a 2013 deposition pertaining to a civil lawsuit against the Cosmopolitan Hotel, where he slipped and fell on a walkway in 2011. It may be the most comprehensive collection of information available on Paddock.
The deposition reveals that Paddock had no known mental health issues but had been perscribed Valium for “anxiousness.”
“He’s like on retainer, I call it, I guess,” Paddock had said of the doctor who perscribed him the drugs. “It means I pay a fee yearly … I have good access to him.”
Paddock was also revealed to be somewhat of a drifter, living largely at hotel casinos, where he lived for

Chloe Ayling was reportedly caught lying to the police.
The 20-year-old British model made headlines around the world when she was kidnapped and drugged after going to a bogus photo shoot in Milan. She claimed she was held hostage by a group of men who wanted to sell her as part of a human trafficking ring.
According to the The Sun, she reportedly was “caught lying” when questioned by authorities.
The publication shares that Ayling was questioned at length about her horrifying ordeal. At one point, in three separate interviews–which spanned nearly 13 hours–she was asked about the clothes she was wearing. She said the kidnappers gave them to her. But a shopkeeper said that she purchased the shoes with one of the kidnappers, Lukasz Herba (seen below). She apparently burst into tears at this statement, saying, “It is true. I went with him to buy the shoes.’’
The police dossier reportedly continues with an

His attacks dot up and down California — as far north as Sacramento and down through Santa Barbara and Orange County — but in the 40 years since the attacks began, the Golden State Killer has never been caught. In fact, the public hardly knew he existed until recently. One crime expert, Mike Morford — who calls himself “True Crime Guy” — hopes to change that.
For more than a year, Morford has been tracking the mysterious killer, whom the Los Angeles Times reports raped at least 45 women and murdered 12 individuals, and he’s met with the Golden State Killer’s victims.
Morford says only recently have police and the public begun to connect the crimes to one man, and he’s been doing everything he can to get the word out himself.
“When I first learned about this case, I noticed he had a much higher victim count than other serial
