    Establishing more authority to government and himself. It is, as usual, all about ego. Having written on this president’s impervious stance against carbon dioxide, the most necessary component in producing oxygen and keeping the earth green, it’s redundant to say much more. However, as Obama, on Monday, installed yet another regulation to cut CO2 by 32% only one conclusion can be reached…the president is attempting to gut more than the economy, he’s bent on killing life on earth. Obama had already proven his lack of respect for human life while an Illinois state senator, cowardly voting “present” on a bill...

    A group of people have established a fundraising website for the woman who earlier this month killed an attacker who might have been a serial killer. Supporters thought the woman — who has been publicly identified only by her first name, Heather — might need funds for public relations and legal assistance if any companies want to buy the rights to her story, to stop placing ads on Backpage and to get away from the location of the attack and find a new apartment, according to one of the organizers of the fundraiser, Charleston resident Laura Gandee. “She’s a feminist...

    For years, Chillicothe, Ohio, was known as just another notch on the Rust Belt, afflicted by the same old problems of drugs, poverty and unemployment. If the town ever made national news, it was because a presidential candidate stopped by vowing to fix things, only for those promises to evaporate after Election Day. But in the past couple of months, Chillicothe has crept back into headlines for something other than a stump speech. Something much darker. Something evil. Chillicothe is no longer just another Rust Belt town. Now it’s the place where women go missing and wash up dead. In...

    WILLIAM MacDonald, known as The Mutilator and NSW’s oldest and longest-serving prisoner, has died in Sydney’s Prince of Wales Hospital. MacDonald, who would have been 91 next month, terrorised Sydney in the early 1960s, killing four men in city parks and one earlier in Brisbane by luring them into dark places and then mutilating their genitalia. Many believe he was Australia’s first high-profile serial killer. His victims, mostly derelicts, were stabbed dozens of times with a long-bladed knife before MacDonald would cut off their penis and testicles. Between 1961 and 1962, MacDonald was responsible for a series of grisly murders...

The figure is several times higher than that of other nurses at the same hospital. Police were initially investigating 38 suspect deaths at a hospital in Lugo di Romagna, near Ravenna, after an autopsy found poison in the system of an elderly woman in the care of Daniela Poggiali, a 42-year-old nurse from the nearby town of Faenza. Detectives have now extended their probe to as many as 96 deaths that occurred during Poggiali's shifts in a 12 months period....

Turner, 47, looked straight at Judge Robert Perry as he handed down the penalty for the string of inner-city killings during the crack cocaine epidemic. As...

DALESIO, JEFFREY COLLINS COLUMBIA, S.C. — Long-haul trucker John Boyer's gray beard and round face give him a grandfatherly appearance, but when he opens his mouth, he seethes with anger toward women. This hatred had murderous results, authorities said, as he picked up prostitutes around the Southeast, killed them and dumped their bodies near interstate highways. He's accused of at least three slayings and...

    A man who lived among the rotting remains of 11 women was convicted Friday of killing all of them, bringing closure to a case that has haunted the city of Cleveland ever since the bodies were unearthed from a house that smelled like death.

    Rep. Michele Bachmann kicked off her presidential campaign on Monday in Waterloo, Iowa, and in one interview surrounding the official event she promised to mimic the spirit of Waterloo's own John Wayne. The only problem, as one eagle-eyed reader notes: Waterloo's John Wayne was not the beloved movie star, but rather John Wayne Gacy, the serial killer. Mrs. Bachmann grew up in Waterloo, and used the town as the backdrop for her campaign announcement, where she told Fox News: "Well what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That's the kind of spirit...

He was convicted after a CBS News program aired showing a video...

    Two NYPD cops are being eyed in the Long Island serial slayings after investigators learned they got into trouble for hiring prostitutes while working for the department, according to sources familiar with the probe. One cop was forced out of the job in the 1990s when his supervisors learned he spent time pursuing hookers and paying street walkers and down-and-out women for sex while he was supposed to be on patrol. An internal investigation led to his resigning under pressure, one source said. The other officer still works for the NYPD but was stripped of his gun and badge years...

    One of the latest four sets of remains found on a Long Island beach linked to the Craigslist Ripper belongs to a baby or child - and not a grown woman, it was revealed today. The remains were found last week among four sets of bodies several miles away from where the bodies of four prostitutes were located in December. But the victim may not be related to the other New York murders as a young person’s body ‘would not fit a serial killer’s pattern’, according to law enforcement sources.

    In December 1970 two teenagers disappeared from the Heights neighborhood, in Houston. Then another and another and another. As the number of missing kids grew, no one realized that the most prolific serial killer the country had ever seen—along with his teenage accomplices—was living comfortably among them. Or that the mystery of what happened to so many of his victims would haunt the city to this day.

    Green River Killer Gary Ridgway is facing his 49th murder charge for the death of a woman whose skull was found by teenagers in a ravine, 28 years after she went missing. Ridgway, 61, is already serving 48 consecutive life sentences after being jailed in 2003 for a strangling spree which terrorised Seattle and its northern suburbs in the early 1980s. He once said he killed so many women he could not keep track of them all. He had previously confessed to killing Rebecca 'Becky' Marrero, a 20-year-old mother and prostitute last seen when she left a motel in 1982.
