‘Lady Killers’: Chicago Author Explores Lives of Female Serial Murderers

Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History takes a look at 14 women who didn’t stop at one murder, or two, or three … Fourteen serial killers throughout history.

Chicago’s own Tori Telfer looks at their origins and motivation, their rationale. Perhaps even more important, she looks at how they were seen. How does society view women who are cold-blooded killers? Differently than men. Let’s start there. We caught up with Telfer with just a few questions in anticipation for her book launch at Women and Children First, Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 7 p.m.

JB: “I believe we have to laugh and shudder in order to understand our own human history, which is partially an inheritance of death. Recoiling from crime

KILLING RICHARD GLOSSIP Documentary explores new evidence in possible


Investigation Discovery’s four-part Killing Richard Glossip documentary takes a comprehensive look at the case of an Oklahoma man sentenced to death for a murder that police know he didn’t commit, and that Glossip has argued for years he had nothing to do with. The miniseries was produced by acclaimed filmmaker Joe Berlinger, best-known for his documentary Paradise Lost, which was responsible for helping free the West Memphis Three in 2011. Berlinger’s latest effort will feel familiar to fans of Serial (and, to a lesser extent, Making A Murderer) in that it presents evidence not brought to light during Richard Glossip’s original trial twenty years ago, using it to question whether justice would be best served by granting Glossip a new trial or an outright overturning of his sentence.

Documentary explores why Karen Matthews plotted kidnap of daughter Shannon

What early clues were there to suggest that Shannon Matthews’ disappearance was an elaborate hoax staged by her mother Karen?

That’s what the documentary ‘Faking It: Tears of a Crime’ aims to show tonight on the Investigation Discovery channel.

The programme employs forensic and behavioural experts to spot early signs intimating that all was not as it seemed when the nine-year-old disappeared.

Shannon, from Dewsbury Moor, was reported missing on February 19, 2008.

Karen made numerous emotional TV appeals which led to a £50,000 reward for her safe return.

But the charade, intended to generate money from the publicity, fell apart when Karen confessed to a police officer.
