Russian internet’s killing fields

Hidden groups on social networking site VK, the Russian equivalent of Facebook, are reportedly controlled by “mentors” who incite their members to take their own lives.

The existence of these groups, highlighted in an investigation by Novaya Gazeta newspaper last year, has rattled parents and sparked heated debate in a country where suicide is largely a taboo subject.

President Vladimir Putin has publicly expressed concern, this month calling for harsher punishments for those convicted of incitement to suicide – a crime that currently carries a prison sentence of up to three years.

Several dozen Russian teenagers out of the 130 who committed suicide between November 2015 and April 2016 were pressured by members of death groups on VK, who remain in the shadows as they spread a suicide cult, Novaya Gazeta reported.

A “mentor” on one death group, 22-year-old Filipp Budeikin, was arrested in Saint Petersburg in November after allegedly inciting 15 teenagers on

Discovery renews La. series ‘Killing Fields,’ ‘Street Outlaws: New Orleans’

The Iberville Parish-centered “Killing Fields,” Discovery Channel’s first true crime series, will return for a third season, the network announced Tuesday.

Meanwhile, another reality series, “Street Outlaws: New Orleans,” which follows a street racing team in the Big Easy, was renewed for a second season.

“Killing Fields,” shot in real time, focuses on remote areas across the country where killers stash their victims. Season 1 focused on the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office reopened investigation into the 1997 murder of LSU graduate student Eugenie Boisfontaine. Season 2 continued with that case, and also tracked the cold-case killing of Curtis “Cochise” Smith in 1991. That probe led to the arrest and indictment last year of Tommy Francise, who authorities believe is also responsible for the death of George Barrett Jr. in 2002. Francise now awaits trial, while there have been no arrests so far in the Boisfontaine case. 

Premiere dates for the shows’ 2017-18 season weren’t

EXCLUSIVE: An Arrest on ‘Killing Fields’ Leaves One Detective Contemplating Retirement

Detective Rodie Sanchez just has one message for Tommy Francise, who has finally been arrested in connection to the homicide of Curtis “Cochise” Smith in the season two finale of Killing Fields: “Your time’s expired.”

In ET’s first look at the final episode, Francise’s arrest brings the 1991 cold case one step closer to being closed. Now, it’s up to the Iberville Parish authorities to make sure the case is ready to go to trial, where they hope a grand jury will indict Francise on two counts of second-degree murder for the homicides of Smith as well as George Barrett.

“Finally closing these cases and bringing justice would mean so much to the whole sheriff’s department. It would also be a tremendous weight off my shoulders,” Sanchez tells ET. The longtime
