‘Dahmer On Dahmer: A Serial Killer Speaks’ Premieres November 11 On Oxygen

Oxygen Media, the new destination for high-quality crime programming, ventures into the mind of America’s most notorious serial killer when its two-night special “Dahmer on Dahmer: A Serial Killer Speaks” premieres Saturday, November 11 at 7pm ET/PT. Twenty-five years ago, Milwaukee resident Jeffrey Dahmer was tried and convicted of 17 gruesome murders, shaking the public’s perception of evil to its core. The shocking nature of his crimes – luring young men into his home, where he drugged, sexually violated, killed and eventually consumed his victims – unmasked a madman walking in the shadows and launched the question: how did a once mild-mannered, handsome young man become one of history’s most terrifying and unexpected serial killers? During his time behind bars, one of the nation’s leading investigative journalists, Nancy Glass, secured both exclusive access and the first televised interview with Dahmer, developing a candid relationship in which he divulged the darkest

Man Mistaken For Las Vegas Shooter Speaks Out On Photo Of Him Being Shared Across Internet

A man falsely accused of being the Las Vegas shooter responsible for killing 59 people and injuring over 500 spoke out Tuesday.

False information flooded online in the hours after Sunday night’s mass shooting, with users posting photos and information about people with the same name as the shooter. A Canadian man, Stephen Paddock, had just set up an Instagram account and was wrongly identified as the shooter by a 4chan user. He told a local New Brunswick outlet he woke up Monday morning and was shocked to find so many people had shared his photo and commented on his account.

“I was taken back,” Paddock said in an interview with The Daily Gleaner, New York Post reports. “People I don’t even know are sharing my picture.”

One instagram user commented, “This isn’t him guys. Chill, this guy is from Canada… leave

OJ Simpson was released from prison Sunday after spending nearly nine years behind bars for orchestrating an armed robbery. The 70-year-old was released a little after midnight, wearing a baseball cap and long coat. Hours later, reporters caught up to him and the former football player responded.

“Man, how in the … Have you all been … you all stalking me?” he said, in a video posted by the New York Post. He was smiling and laughing but appeared annoyed.

The reporter asked Simpson how it felt like to be out. OJ responsed, “I’m in a car for the last five hours, so how do I know how it feels to be out? … I’ve been in nowhere U.S.A. for the last nine years doing nothing. Nothing has changed in my life. What do you expect?” 

He then told the reporter that where he was going was “none of [his] business.”

Holly Bobo’s Brother Speaks Out On Being Named Suspect In Her Murder: ‘I Was Shocked’

The brother of Holly Bobo, the 20-year-old nursing student who was abducted and killed in 2011, spoke in an interview with ABC News about his later terror of seeing his sister abducted and how police initially named him a suspect in her disappearance.

“It was really hard knowing that if they’re looking in the wrong direction… it’s just that feeling of, ‘What if we never know? What if we … never find Holly?’” Clint Bobo told “20/20.” “I was just like, ‘What if this is never solved?’ I think that’s been my worst nightmare in this.”

Holly was abducted from the Bobo’s Tennessee home on April 13. That morning, Clint, then 25, got a call from his mother saying that a neighbor had heard a scream coming from their house. She asked him to check on Holly.

Clint looked out the window and saw a man dressed in camouflage walking with his

The California teen who livestreamed the alleged DUI crash which killed her 14-year-old sister and injured her sister’s girlfriend last month has spoken out.

In a Friday interview from prison, 18-year-old Obdulia Sanchez told NBC Fresno affiliate KSEE that the footage of the crash was jarring.

“I didn’t even know I looked like a monster — like, I look like a freaking horrible monster,” Sanchez said. “That was not my intention at all.”

Sanchez has been charged with drunk driving and vehicular manslaughter. AOL reported that her car went off the road while she was livestreaming.

“That’s when I just started freaking out,” Sanchez said. “And then I look in the back seat and there’s nobody in the back seat, and that’s when I started freaking out.”

Sanchez’s sister Jacqueline and her girlfriend, both age 14, were ejected from the car. She livestreamed while posing next to her sister’s dead body.

Woman Who Survived Month In Wilderness Finally Speaks Out: ‘I Couldn’t Even Hear Any Cars’

A missing woman feared dead showed up 28 days after she vanished, after surviving alone in the wilderness.

She lived off berries and mushrooms in the dense forest of rural Alabama.

Lisa Theris, 25,  was reported missing nearly a month ago, according to Alabama NBC affiliate WSFA. She had fled a hunting lodge after two men she was with committed a robbery. Theris, a radiology student and waitress, did not want to be an accessory.

Manley Davis, 31, and Randall Oswald, 36, stole $40,000 worth of items, including four-wheelers, ATVS, and chainsaws, the Daily Mail reported.

Last Saturday, a woman driving down a country road spotted a woman looking for help.

“I just passed a road and there’s a lady that, she came out of the woods naked and she’s been sick. She’s been in the woods for three weeks,” the caller told 911 dispatchers. Initially, she thought that Theris

DJ David Mueller Speaks Out After Losing Taylor Swift Groping Trial: ‘I Can Pass A Polygraph’

Following a guilty verdict, David Mueller maintains that he did not assault Taylor Swift.

According to E! News, the former DJ sat down with “Good Morning America to defend himself. He claims he never groped her and he’ll take a polygraph test to prove it.

“What I’m saying is that I didn’t do what they say I did. I didn’t do it. I never grabbed her. I never had my hand under her skirt and I can pass a polygraph,” he said.

Mueller says he touched the superstar’s ribs during a 2013 meet-and-greet in Colorado. “Because I was a larger person, I thought it would be a good idea if I closed my hand, so I didn’t poke Taylor with my fingers,” he testified.

She responded during her testimony by stating, “He did not touch my rib. He did not touch my arm. He did not touch my hand. He grabbed my bare ass.”

Mom Of Charlottesville Victim Killed By White Supremacist Speaks Out: ‘I Want Her Death To Be A Rallying Cry’

The mother of the woman murdered during the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend said her daughter’s death should be “a rallying cry for justice.”

“Heather was not about hate, Heather was about stopping hatred,” Susan Bro, Heyer’s mother told HuffPost. “Heather was about bringing an end to injustice. I don’t want her death to be a focus for more hatred, I want her death to be a rallying cry for justice and equality and fairness and compassion.”

Google Employee Fired Over Viral Anti-Diversity Manifesto Speaks Out: ‘I’m Not A Sexist’

After being terminated from Google, engineer James Damore is speaking out about allegations that he’s sexist.

The 28-year-old’s “anti-diversity manifesto”—a lengthy memo that outlined his reasoning that there are genetic differences in women that explain their underrepresention in Silicon Valley—went viral and was met with criticism within and outside Google.

As The Washington Post shares, Damore has given interviews since his termination to defend his stance and reputation. “I’m not saying that any of the female engineers at Google are in any way worse than the average male engineer,” Damore told Stefan Molyneux, host of “Freedomain Radio.” “I’m just saying that this may explain some of the disparity in representation in the population.”

He then told Bloomberg TV, “The whole point of my memo was to improve Google and Google’s culture and they just punished me and shamed me for doing it,” he said. “I’m not a sexist.”

Damore filed a complaint with the National Labor
