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

Full Trailer For Upcoming ‘My Friend Dahmer’ Film Criticized For Romanticizing Serial Killing

Earlier this week, a full trailer for the upcoming film My Friend Dahmer was released. The movie, based on the graphic novel by John “Derf” Backderf, tells the story of the socially awkward teenager who would grow up to become one of America’s most notorious serial killers.

Backderf’s book was based on his real life experiences of befriending the young outcast with a penchant for collecting dead animals. While the graphic novel concludes with Backderf receiving a call about Dahmer’s killings (many years after losing touch with his friend) the film will end with Dahmer’s first murder.

Alex Lynch, known for more wholesome roles on the Disney Channel, will play Dahmer in the upcoming movie: “I think you’re not going to be able to see the teen heartthrob in this role,” explains Backderf. “It’s not a slasher film – it’s a very melancholy tale full of regret and remorse that shows this young kid

Serial Killer Superfan Arrested For Murdering Mom, Stuffing Her In 55-Gallon Drum: ‘Mama’s Under The Porch’

An Alabama man is accused of murder after authorities found a 55-gallon drum containing a female body buried under his porch, Inside Edition reports.

“OK, my mama’s under the porch. Y’all got me,” Nathaniel Sebastian, 32, allegedly said to deputies who went to the house with a search warrant after his mother went missing.

Sebastian was charged with murder, abuse of a corpse, and promoting prison contraband after police found a homemade handcuff key in his mouth during booking.

Though police have not formally identified the corpse, Sebastian’s mother, Susan Mayo, 60, was reported missing June 17 by her other children. 

She lived with Sebastian, who was reportedly a big fan of John Wayne Gacy, an Illinois serial killer who buried his victims under his house. Gacy was executed in 1994 after being found responsible for dozens of murders.

Sebastian had talked about Gacy on Facebook and even discussed the serial killer with a

4 Terrifying Serial Killers Who Led Disturbing Double Lives

The scariest part about serial killers is how they often drift undetected through the world, lying low until their crimes have been discovered. At any moment, we might be in contact with someone committing the most heinous deeds imaginable.

Here are four serial killers who notoriously kept their murders a secret while maintaining an entirely different life during the day.

1. John Wayne Gacy

Gacy was ultimately found to have raped and killed over 30 boys and men, but fooled locals by working as a friendly and beloved neighborhood clown. In jail, he would go on to paint portraits of clowns that sell for thousands of dollars to this day.

2. Ted Bundy

Ted Bundy was considered a charming upstart in the Republican party and even worked at a crisis suicide hotline while covertly going on a murdering spree. How he tricked friends into believing he was a do-gooder is detailed in the stunning

Netflix’s Creepy New Serial Killer Show ‘Mindhunter’ Is Based On A Terrifying True Story

Today, Netflix dropped the first full trailer for its upcoming crime series “Mindhunter.” Directed by David Fincher (best known for his work on the “Gone Girl” film and “Zodiac”), the new series is set to explore the horror and drama behind some of the earliest investigations into serial killers.

Starring Johnathon Groff as Holden Ford and Holt McCallany as Bill Tench, the show is based on the real-life work of  John E. Douglas and Robert K. Ressler. Douglas and Ressler were FBI agents specifically assigned with the task of investigating what would eventually be known as serial murder.

The show is loosely based on the criminal psychology book of the same title, a groundbreaking work that explored the motives behind some of the country’s most gruesome repeat murderers. The book details the beginnings of what become known as psychological profiling, which is a theory used by investigators suggesting parts of a killer’s personality

Serial Killer Cosmo DiNardo Claims To Have Murdered At Least Two Others

The suspect who has confessed to murdering four young men and burying their bodies on his parents farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania is now claiming he has killed before.

According to CBS Philadelphia, 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo has confessed that he was involved in at least two other killings in Philadelphia over the last five years.

“Given what he was already been accused of it’s certainly a possibility we would be remissed if we didn’t investigate further,” Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross told NBC Philadelphia.

Last week, DiNardo  confessed to murdering Jimi Taro Patrick, 19; Dean Finocchiaro, 19; Mark Sturgis, 22, and Tom Meo, 21. The four young men were shot and buried on DiNardo’s family farm. Families of the four have announced funeral plans this week.
