Uncovering the Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Run Society November 27, 2012 by Aja Romano of the Daily Dot

While many people know Crime Library as the Internet’s 15-year-old repository of crime, its founder Marilyn Bardsley has a very different understanding of the stories it houses. Many of them she investigated personally, including the very first story ever published on the website—the 1938 Cleveland Torso Murders, committed by a horrific serial killer who would later be dubbed “the Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Run.”

Can’t touch this: Why did van der Sloot yawn?

The following post is reprinted from Psychology Today

Joran van der Sloot, scheduled to plead guilty to murder earlier this month, wanted more time to “reflect” on the deal he would make. He seemed to think that the court should accommodate him, and even yawned widely to punctuate his arrogance. Certain offenders display a perplexing resilience. It’s called narcissistic immunity, or “Teflon narcissism.” They think they’re special.

When it comes to serial killers, nurture counts as much, or more, than nature

I’ve admired Pete Earley’s writing for years. From this Edgar Award winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist I’ve learned about such things as the history of Las Vegas, the clash of law and mental health, and the inner workings of a high-security penitentiary. His most recent book, The Serial Killer Whisperer, is quite unique, because its central figure is an adolescent boy with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that makes him remarkably resonant with some of the meanest men alive. Thus, this compelling narrative revolves around the most salient issue in criminology today: the criminal brain. Given my own interest in this subject, I jumped at the chance to talk with Earley about his book.
