This week Evil Twins examines the case of Christopher (left) and William Cormier III, twins with a murderous streak.

Florida on Aug. 31, 2012, and William visited Sean Dugas at his home where at some point Dugas was brutally killed. William, with the help of his brother, then disposed of the body and set about selling off just about everything that Dugas owned.

They had particular interest in his collection of rare cards from Magic: The Gathering, which was worth around $100,000. They also sold various other items and used some of the cash to purchase a cheap plastic coffin. They then partially encased Dugas’s body in concrete and buried it in the backyard.

William was eventually found guilty of first-degree murder sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole. His

Hear No Evil spotlights suspected serial killer Mike DeBardeleben known as the Mall Passer

Mike DeBardeleben or the Mall Passer

Mike DeBardeleben became known as the Mall Passer for forging money but his other crimes were far more sinister

This week Hear No Evil investigates the very disturbing case of Mike DeBardeleben, the so-called “Mall Passer” or “Mall Killer”.

During the early 1980s the Secret Service had been investigating a new counterfeit operation and had began handing out sketches of the suspect to various stores. By chance they had just left one when the clerk recognised a man trying to pass off a fake bill. After a foot chase he was apprehended and a search of his car revealed some items that made them think he was involved in some more serious crimes.

In the trunk were thousands in fake money, a stash of pornography, various drugs, stolen license plates, fake drivers licenses, a forged police badge, police lights and

TV judge looks at Halliwell murders in new documentary

A NEW documentary examining harrowing details of how police caught double-murderer Christopher Halliwell will be broadcast on ITV tomorrow.

Television personality and real-life criminal defence barrister Judge Rinder will step out from behind the bench to take a closer look at the gripping case of Sian O’Callaghan, who disappeared after a night out with friends at the Suju nightclub in Old Town in March 2011.

The hour-long special will follow the multiple twists and turns in the case from the initial arrest to the court case, as well as Halliwell’s life-sentence imposed last year after he was found guilty of murdering Becky Godden.

The Judge Rinder documentary comes just weeks after a show aired in the USA recounting the 22-year-old’s last movements.

See No Evil: Watch Me Disappear, on the Investigation Discovery channel, revealed CCTV and Automatic Numberplate Recognition (ANPR) were key in apprehending Halliwell.

The documentary revealed suspicion swiftly fell on the taxi driver

‘The Keepers’ on Netflix digs deeper into the life of a homicide victim

Her body was discovered in a vacant lot, remote wooded area, dumpster or car trunk. She was nude or partially clothed. There were signs of sexual assault.

As any armchair detective or avid Investigation Discovery channel viewer can tell you, such grim scenarios are standard fare for true-crime television, fodder for an endless stream of whodunits flooding the market.

Yet despite the reality that nearly 80 percent of the nation’s homicide victims are men, according to recent FBI stats, on crime TV it’s predominantly women who end up on the wrong side of a gun, knife or blunt instrument.

The demise of single moms, teenage daughters and beloved grandmothers drives the majority of shows on the 24/7-crime ID channel. Likewise, high-profile killings of females provided the groundwork for ESPN’s “OJ: Made in
