Lawlor may have killed more than twice, profiler says

“This guy’s an excellent suspect” in the Toronto disappearances, said Mellor, a criminologist and profiler specializing in abnormal homicide and sex crimes and bestselling author of “Cold North Killers: Canadian Serial Murder.”

“He’s definitely worth looking at.”

Just because he didn’t live in the Toronto area shouldn’t rule him out as a possible suspect, Mellor said.

“He is, after all, a serial killer of homosexual males. Finding evidence to eliminate Lawlor would serve to narrow the suspect pool, while failing to do so would leave loose ends.”

John Davie, who had three-way sex with Lawlor and McCreadie the night of McCreadie’s murder, agrees there could be more victims.

“That’s a 30-year gap” between the Newfoundland and Kitchener killings, Davie said in an interview. “Yeah, chances are there’s more than likely other cases in between there.”

Davie himself came close to being a victim. Before murdering McCreadie, Lawlor wrapped a scarf around Davie’s neck during sex and

Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock

Stephen Paddock’s murderous sniper attack on a concert crowd in Las Vegas in which he killed 28 people and wounded nearly 500 will occupy a prominent place in the annals of horror.

Yet weeks after the attack, carried out from a suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, authorities apparently have not determined his motive.

Is ‘Mindhunter’ Based On A True Story? A Real Criminal Profiler Inspired The Netflix Show

True crime seems to dominate so much of the media landscape lately that every time a new show with procedural elements premieres, it feels like it could be rooted in the truth. For example, Netflix’s new series Mindhunter follows two FBI agents as they delve into the minds of serial killers to figure out how they think. But is Mindhunter based on a true story? There may be fictional elements to the series, but inspiration did come directly from real life: specifically, a true crime book by John E. Douglas called Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit.

Douglas’ book lent the show its premise and its title, as well as its main characters. Jonathan Groff’s Holden Ford is based on Douglas even though they don’t share the same name, and Bill Tench (played by Holt McCallany) is based on Douglas’

Does James Fitzgerald Still Work For The FBI? The Unabomber Profiler Has An Active Career


Discovery’s limited series Manhunt: Unabomber retraces the 17-year bombing spree that hung over America from 1978 to 1995 — a case cracked in large part by FBI profiler James Fitzgerald (played by Sam Worthington in the show). He’s gone on to lead an extensive career investigating some of the last century’s most notorious crimes: JonBenét Ramsey’s 1996 murder, the 2001 anthrax investigation, the Beltway sniper attacks of 2002.
