The remains are thought to be the 7th and final victim of a 35-year-old Cyprus army captain. The official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he's not authorized to publicly disclose details of the discovery, said the remains were found tied by rope to a cement block.

Antonia Noori Farzan, The Washington Post Published 4:24 am PST, Wednesday, January 30, 2019 For the better part of a decade, rumors about a serial killer haunted Toronto's Gay Village, a gentrifying neighborhood of rainbow-flag street signs and historic Victorian homes where bathhouses and X-rated video stores were slowly being replaced by banks and chain coffee shops. As one gay man after another disappeared under mysterious circumstances, residents canceled plans to go out, carried pepper spray on walks and made sure their neighbors knew when to expect them home. But in December 2017, the Toronto Police Service assured residents that there was no reason to believe that the community had a mass murderer on its hands. "We follow the evidence, and the evidence is telling us that that's not the case right now," Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders told reporters at the time. "The evidence today tells us that there is not a serial killer." A month later, however, LGBTQ … [Read more...] about Gay men kept vanishing on the streets of Toronto.

A MAN convicted of three California murders and long suspected in other deaths now claims he was involved in about 90 killings nationwide spanning nearly four decades. Ector County District Attorney Bobby Bland said 78-year-old Samuel Little was booked into jail this week following his indictment in the 1994 death of a Texas woman. Investigators already have confirmed about a third of the 90 killings, a Texas prosecutor said Thursday. Investigations are on-going, but Little has provided details in more than 90 deaths dating to about 1970, according to Bland. Little was brought to Texas in September, and investigators with law enforcement agencies in several states travelled to speak with him about unsolved homicides. Bland said: “They're able to match up over 30 cases so far. So far we don't have any false information coming from him. If the number of killings Little claims to have committed proves true, it would make him one of the most prolific killers in US history. During his … [Read more...] about Prisoner Samuel Little, 78, confesses to more than 90 unsolved murders making him one of deadliest serial killers of all time
By Katie Dowd, SFGATE Updated 4:05 pm PDT, Monday, October 29, 2018 Richard Chase Richard Chase had a brief, terrifying run before police apprehended the “Vampire of Sacramento.” Chase’s mental health issues were evident by his early 20s; convinced he wasn’t producing enough blood, Chase became fixated on blood. In 1976, he was committed to a mental institution after trying to inject animal blood into his body. Chase was diagnosed with schizophrenia, given medication and released. His mother soon had him off his meds, and the Vampire of Sacramento’s reign of chaos began. Like something out of a nightmare, Chase was caught staring into windows and testing front doors. If he found them locked, he’d interpret it as a sign he wasn’t welcome. For the unfortunate victims whose doors weren’t locked, Chase would shoot and kill the occupants in order to cannibalize and desecrate their bodies. After his sixth such … [Read more...] about How California’s most infamous serial killers got caught
