Description : The word 'murder' has always attracted widespread local and national media coverage. Once known, the story becomes the subject of discussion in a variety of places throughout the land. Some grisly tales become part of a culture that lives on for generations, whilst others, even by some of the worst serial killers, are soon forgotten. In this book experienced crime historian Stephen Wade has gathered together a collection of murders covering the entire twentieth century. Although famous in their own day, most are now forgotten by the general public, apart from the best true crime enthusiasts. The first conviction for fingerprint evidence, the last hanging in England and murderous husbands and wives are included; but there are also mysteries, unsolved killings and peculiar confessions. Meet the man who poisoned his rival's scones, a wrongful arrest and the acquittal of a good wife who shot her man dead. There are even tales from the Isle of Man, whose legislators continued to issue death penalties in the 1990s.

Description : “Speaking of Murder”invents true-crime “media autopsy”Bonnie Bucqueroux' new book dissects the media coverage of three famous crime cases: the Fatty Arbuckle "murder" trials, the Kitty Genovese case where neighbors heard her being killed but did nothing and Truman Capote's creation of the non-fiction novel "In Cold Blood" about the Clutter murders in Kansas.Author Bonnie Bucqueroux' new book Speaking of Murder: Media Autopsies of Famous Crime Cases dissects three famous crime cases through the lens of their media coverage. “A media autopsy looks at the role of the media in helping or hindering efforts to bring justice to the accused, as well as to the victims and their families and to the community,” says Bucqueroux, a faculty member at Michigan State University's School of Journalism where she previously served as coordinator of the Victims and the Media Program. In Volume One, Bucqueroux conducts media autopsies on three famous cases from the past: Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle stood trial three times for a crime that likely never occurred. Aspiring starlet Virginia Rappe died of an infection after a private party that the press transformed into alcohol-fueled orgy, with the lovable comedian cast in the role of the villain. (Arbuckle's 125th birthday would be this March 24, 2012.) Kitty Genovese was returning home late at night after work when she was attacked on the street and killed by a stranger. What made her case unique was that Abe Rosenthal of The New York Times discovered that 38 witnesses heard her scream during the half-hour she was raped and stabbed but did nothing to help her. Acclaimed novelist Truman Capote invented the “non-fiction novel” to tell the story of the murder of four members of the Clutter family of Kansas and the subsequent arrest, trial and execution of the two men who killed them. Bucqueroux explores how Capote crafted his masterpiece and at the toll covering such cases inflicts on the journalists who report on them. Bucqueroux' website (www.speakingofmurder.com) offers a free downloadable Study Guide that high school and college instructors can use for their English, journalism, criminal justice or sociology classes. “I teach an introduction to mass media course, and I find that students need to practice their critical thinking skills, to tease out the impact that media coverage of crime has on our society. We are both repelled and fascinated by murder cases, so they serve as excellent case studies for students to consider, ” said Bucqueroux. “We also need to discuss the role of journalists in helping us understand why such crimes persist and how we can do a better job of preventing them.”

Description : When you think of Hollywood, you picture glamour, celebrities and an abundance of sunshine. The Walk of Fame, Hollywood Boulevard, and the Chinese Theatre help make up the opulent attractions. LA is known for the iconic Hollywood sign, the rich diversity of the city, and… murder, obsession, and lies? Los Angeles is an attractive place to be, particularly if you have dreams of being a movie star. However, there is a darker side to Hollywood - one filled with seediness, jealousy, and as laid out in the true stories within this book, an overwhelming lust for power and murder. I'll take you on a macabre tour of LA in this book. We'll head to Leimert Park where Elizabeth Short's body was dumped after it was cut in half and her face was disfigured. We'll also visit Wonderland Avenue, where four people were killed in the drug house belonging to the well-known Wonderland Gang. We will also take a hike in the vast, rolling hills, where the Hillside Stranglers dumped their victims after horrifically torturing them. I'll delve into some of the most horrific and shocking cases of murder in the idylic, mirage-like setting of the Hollywood Hills. In these nine tales of terror in tinseltown, you'll also read about: The Pin Up: A former pin-up was brutally murdered by the same person who'd encouraged her to pursue a career in Hollywood. A tragic tale of jealousy and possessiveness turned fatal. The Hollywood Ripper: A callous killer with a penchant for lurking in the shadows and stalking women who certainly earned the moniker 'The Hollywood Ripper'. The Son of a Hollywood Icon: One of Old Hollywood's leading men, who led a storied life, had a son who would go on to live an even more headline-grabbing life - albeit for all the wrong reasons. The Sinister Photographer: A terrifying tale of how a renowned LA photographer harboured intense feelings of hatred toward one woman - and acted upon them in the most horrific way. Dreaming of a life in the Hollywood hills? You might want to think again…

Description : During the 1950s and 1960s True Detective magazine developed a new way of narrating and understanding murder. It was more sensitive to context, gave more psychologically sophisticated accounts, and was more willing to make conjectures about the unknown thoughts and motivations of killers than others had been before. This turned out to be the start of a revolution, and, after a century of escalating accounts, we have now become a nation of experts, with many ordinary people able to speak intelligently about blood-spatter patterns and organized vs. disorganized serial killers. The Rise of True Crime examines the various genres of true crime using the most popular and well-known examples. And despite its examination of some of the potentially negative effects of the genre, it is written for people who read and enjoy true crime, and wish to learn more about it. With skyrocketing crime rates and the appearance of a frightening trend toward social chaos in the 1970s, books, documentaries, and fiction films in the true crime genre tried to make sense of the Charles Manson crimes and the Gary Gilmore execution events. And in the 1980s and 1990s, true crime taught pop culture consumers about forensics, profiling, and highly technical aspects of criminology. We have thus now become a nation of experts, with many ordinary people able to speak intelligently about blood-spatter patterns and organized vs. disorganized serial killers. Through the suggestion that certain kinds of killers are monstrous or outside the realm of human morality, and through the perpetuation of the stranger-danger idea, the true crime aesthetic has both responded to and fostered our culture's fears. True crime is also the site of a dramatic confrontation with the concept of evil, and one of the few places in American public discourse where moral terms are used without any irony, and notions and definitions of evil are presented without ambiguity. When seen within its historical context, true crime emerges as a vibrant and meaningful strand of popular culture, one that is unfortunately devalued as lurid and meaningless pulp.

Description : This book examines the media and cultural responses to the awful crimes of Brady and Hindley, whose murders provided a template for future media reporting on serial killers. It explores a wide variety of topics relating to the Moors Murders case including: the historical and geographical context of the murders, the reporting of the case and the unique features which have become standard for other murder cases e.g. nicknames for the serial killers, and it discusses the nature of evil and psychopaths and how they are represented in film, drama, novels and art. It also questions the ethics of the “serial killing industry” and how the modern cultural fixation on celebrity has extended to serial killers, and it explores the impact on the journalists and police officers from being involved in such cases including some interviews with them. The treatment of Brady and Hindley by the media also raises profound questions about the nature of punishment including the links between mental illness and crime and whether there is ever the prospect of redemption. This book draws on cultural studies, criminology, sociology and socio-legal studies to offers a multi-dimensional analysis of the impact of this case and then uses this as a basis for the analysis of more recent cases such as the crimes of Peter Sutcliffe and Harold Shipman.
