    HUNTSVILLE, Texas — Texas carried out the nation's first execution of 2018 Thursday evening, giving lethal injection to a man who became known as Houston's "Tourniquet Killer" because of his signature murder technique on four female victims. Anthony Allen Shore was put to death for one of those slayings, the 1992 killing of a 21-year-old woman whose body was dumped in the drive-thru of a Houston Dairy Queen. In 1998, Shore received eight years' probation and became a registered sex offender for sexually assaulting two relatives. Five years later, Shore was arrested for the 1992 slaying of Maria del Carmen...

    The man suspected in the serial killings that terrorized a Tampa neighborhood for two months worked at a McDonald's -- and on the day of his arrest, brought a loaded gun to work in a McDonald's bag. Donaldson was arrested at the McDonald's after police received a tip about the gun -- the same gun that was used in the four killings, according to authorities. The suspect, who had previously attended St. John's University in New York City, reportedly brought a loaded .40-caliber Glock to the restaurant and asked a co-worker to hold it while he was getting a payday...

    They’re not sending their best is an expression coined by President Trump during last year’s presidential campaign, when he was describing the huge amount of criminals and “bad hombres” who were jumping the fence in the US from Mexico, with almost zero vetting. That phrase just got a new meaning today, as we just got word about a Pakistani serial killer getting arrested as he was trying to enter the European Union as a refugee. Truth be told, the man whose nickname is “The Butcher” was apprehended by Hungarian border patrol. I bet that if he tried to enter the...

    The youngest of Manson's followers, Van Houten has been considered the least blameworthy member of the group and has been portrayed by supporters as a misguided teen under the influence of LSD on the night of the slayings. A former homecoming queen from Monrovia, she did not join in the Aug. 9, 1969, murders of Sharon Tate, the pregnant wife of film director Roman Polanski, and four others at the Benedict Canyon home that Tate was renting. But the following day, Van Houten was part of a group that stormed into the LaBiancas' home in Los Feliz. As Charles "Tex"...

  • That Time I Was Mistaken For Son Of Sam

    Back in 1977, New York City was gripped by a fear unlike any other I have witnessed, except, of course, during the aftermath of 9/11. It was a reign of terror that saw six people murdered and seven others wounded. Most of those who were attacked were young women. The conventional wisdom was that the killer was looking for ladies with long, dark hair, causing many women to cut their hair short. The attacks began in 1975, but it wasn’t until the summer of 1976 that women started being shot to death, execution style. By then, we learned that the...
