Criminal Minds Exclusive: Is the Media Going Too Far in a Killer Case?

The FBI is going head to head with the press this week on Criminal Minds.

We’ve got another narcisistic unsub on our hands and the local paper isn’t helping things at all. In our exclusive clip, Rossi (Joe Mantegna) and JJ (A.J. Cook) go toe-to-toe with the news editor of the paper to try and dissuade her from publishing a story that will only fuel and embolden the unsub killing innocent people.

It’s not just the paper wanting to get a big story, though. There’s a leak that’s giving the journalists classified info and making it that much harder for the team at the BAU to catch their killer. When Rossi and JJ try to explain the stakes involved, the news editor balks and holds up her First Amendment rights. They’re going to have to try and use a different tactic if they want the local paper to play ball.

Life in the shadow of a killer on the loose

Michael Haynes used to take long walks with his dog through Seminole Heights, the tree-lined neighborhood in Tampa, Florida, where he has lived for the last 17 years with his wife and three children.

But the 56-year-old no longer takes such strolls. Now, when he goes out with his dog at night, he stays in the line of sight of the police who blanket the area.

“Everyone is on edge,” he said. “We are trying to maintain as normal of life as possible. We don’t want to live in the shadows.”

In the last month, four seemingly unconnected people have been shot and killed in Seminole Heights not far from Haynes’ home. The victims are separated by age, race and occupation, and each was killed — but not robbed — while walking alone at night within a half-mile area, police said.

Officials have said the killings are connected in their methodology, leading to fears

Inside The Mind Of A Serial Killer: How Accurate Is Netflix’s Mindhunter?

Jazmin Kopotsha
| Culture Writer | 1 day ago

The Debrief: Just how much of the new drama series is real?

The concept of serial killing is far too familiar to all of us. Depressing, disturbing and frightening as it obviously is, it’s a term we’ve become accustomed to through the news, through history and most intently through true crime dramas. 

Society’s strange fascination with serial killers is unwavering and has no doubt fuelled the outpouring of avidly watched murder documentaries over the last couple of years – Making a Murderer,

Mindhunter: What Role Will the BTK Killer Play in Season 2?

Most episodes of Netflix’s criminal profiler period piece Mindhunter open with a scene of a seemingly mild-mannered, mustachioed ADT Security employee going about his increasingly distressing business in Park City, Kansas. He’s at work. He’s dropping letters in the mail. He’s tying knots while watching TV. He’s breaking into someone’s house, waiting for them to come home, freaking out and pounding on his chest with rage when they don’t. And in the season’s final scene, he’s burning disturbing drawings of dead women.

The vignettes obviously show a deviant personality like the ones Holden Ford (Jonathon Groff), Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) and Wendy Carr (Anna Torv) are studying, but out in the wild and perhaps one who isn’t a killer yet. At first, the scenes seem random and disconnected from the rest of the story until you realize that this guy, played by Sonny Valicenti, is Dennis Rader, the BTK Killer.
