Beware these hoaxes circulating after Las Vegas mass shooting

NEW YORK — After a gunman opened fire from the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino in Las Vegas in what would be the country’s deadliest mass shooting, internet trolls have been hard at work spreading bogus information on social media.

Among the hoaxes was a series of posts identifying the gunman as comedian Sam Hyde. It’s become a disturbing routine for online trolls who have identified Hyde as a suspect in the 2015 San Bernardino shooting and again in a shooting at UCLA last year.

A number of troll accounts on Twitter pushed out phony missing victim photos, asking for retweets to “spread the word.” The “missing” included a suspect linked to a murder case in Mexico, an adult film actor and former Vine star Lil Terio.

And there wasn’t a shortage of conspiracy theories either.

Primarily disseminated by far-right blogs, a news story claimed the shooter was a man named Geary Danley, a mutual

These 9 Signs Could Help You Spot a Serial Killer Before It’s Too Late

Even the most highly-trained psychologists and police officers are incapable of predicting who has it in them to become a serial killer, but there are some common traits that the most prolific killers in the world share.

Thankfully, people who are mentally imbalanced enough to murder others make a minuscule percentage of the population, so many people will display these signs without going on to kill. Although it’s highly unlikely you will cross paths with a serial murderer, it still pays to be informed…

1. Childhood Abuse and Neglect

A staggeringly large proportion of serial killers have survived extremely traumatic childhoods riddled with physical, verbal and sexual abuse. The FBI conducted a study which interviewed dozens of serial killers, and with every individual they found “similar patterns of severe childhood neglect.”

Who Killed These Girls?

From the author of Crossed Over, Who Killed These Girls?: Cold Case: The Yogurt Shop Murders is another masterful account of a horrible crime: the murder of four girls, countless other ruined lives, and the evolving complications of the justice system that frustrated the massive attempts–for twenty-five years now–to find and punish those who committed it.

The facts are brutally straightforward. On December 6, 1991, the naked, bound-and-gagged bodies of the four girls–each one shot in the head–were found in an I Can’t Believe It’s Yogurt! shop in Austin, Texas. Grief, shock, and horror spread out from their families and friends to overtake the city itself. Though all branches of law enforcement were brought to bear, the investigation was often misdirected and after eight years only two men (then teenagers) were tried; moreover, their subsequent convictions were eventually overturned, and Austin PD detectives are still working on what is now a very cold case. Over the decades, the story has grown to include DNA technology, false confessions, and other developments facing crime and punishment in contemporary life. But this story belongs to the scores of people involved, and from them Lowry has fashioned a riveting saga that reads like a Russian novel, comprehensive and thoroughly engrossing.
