Brazilian man accused of crimes died in 2005 plane crash, investigators say

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – The Broward Sheriff’s Office and City of Miami Police Department announced Tuesday that they have linked a serial killer to the killings of three young women in South Florida decades after the women were killed.

The body of Kimberly Dietz-Livesey was the first to be discovered on June 22, 2000. Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony said her body had been placed inside a suitcase that was found along a roadway in Cooper City.

Weeks later, on Aug. 9, 2000, the body of Sia Demas was found stuffed inside a duffel bag along a road in Dania Beach.

Little Rock Police Scramble To Identify Suspected Serial Killer After Multiple Stabbings

Arkansas authorities are asking the public for assistance in identifying a possible serial killer who they say is behind multiple stabbings that have occurred in Little Rock since August.

Detectives in Arkansas are investigating the identity of a possible serial killer behind a series of late-night slashings in Little Rock in recent months. 

Since August, four people have been stabbed in the early morning hours on the city’s west side. Three victims have died after being attacked. 

On Aug. 24, Larry McChristian, 64, was stabbed to death at 2200 South Gaines Street, KATV reported. Nearly a month later, Jeff Welch, 62, was fatally stabbed at 4218 W. 12th St. Police said he had puncture wounds to his neck. The third knife attack unfolded on April 11, when a 43-year-old woman sustained more than a dozen stab wounds after she was attacked at 1906 S. Pulaski Street. She survived the attack, according to investigators. The next day, the body of a homeless man was found on Wright Avenue, according to police.

How Police Covered Up One of Australia’s Most Notorious Serial Killers

Considering how many involve law enforcement corruption, true crime stories suggest that without accountability cops can’t be trusted to behave properly in obtaining confessions, charging individuals, or admitting to their mistakes regarding unjust convictions. The Night Caller is both a sprawling serial-killer mystery and a saga about legal exoneration. Yet by its conclusion, it primarily proves to be another infuriating non-fiction portrait of police malfeasance and—worse still—unwillingness to own up to, and correct, their own wrongdoing.

Writer/director Thomas Meadmore’s four-part Sundance Now docuseries (premiering Jan. 19) takes place in the Western Suburbs of Perth, Australia, an affluent enclave that, in the ‘50s and ‘60s, offered residents a comfortable, carefree and safe life in which they were free to leave their doors and windows unlocked and to sleep on their verandas during the hot summer months. Those good times came to a crashing halt, however, in 1959, with the brutal murder of single mother Pnina Berkman in her bedroom. When her boyfriend Fotis Fountas promptly fled the country for his native Greece, authorities assumed he was the culprit. Nine months later, though, another similar slaying took place in Perth: that of 22-year-old chocolate empire heiress Jillian Brewer, who was savagely slain in her bed with a tomahawk and a pair of scissors.
