DNA Links Decades-Old Murder and Rape Cases in 3 States as Police ‘Confident’ They’ll Catch ‘Serial Killer’

31 May 2017 1:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A recent DNA match has linked three long-unsolved crimes — a double-homicide, a homicide and a sexual assault — across three states dating back to 1990, People confirms.

Now, authorities tell People they are confident they will capture the suspect, who they described as a “serial killer.”

Authorities say they believe the April 1990 killing of Genevieve Zitricki in South Carolina was the first in the crime spree that lasted at least eight years, according to Captain Chris Hensley with the New Madrid County, Missouri, Sheriff’s Office.

“I’m confident that we’ll identify the killer,” Hensley tells People. “It’s the when »

Who Was Serial Killer Donald Harvey, the ‘Angel of Death’ Who Poisoned Dozens of Hospital Patients?

30 March 2017 5:21 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The death Thursday of Donald Harvey has thrown a spotlight on the dozens of poisoning murders to which the former hospital orderly admitted to, almost all in the manner of what he portrayed as mercy killings and earning him the label “Angel of Death.”

Harvey, 64, died two days after he was found beaten in his cell at Toledo Correctional Institution in Toledo, Ohio, People confirms. No assailant was identified.

He was serving four life sentences after his 1987 conviction for the murders of 25 people, most of them at Drake Hospital in Cincinnati. The “Angel of Death” tag stuck because he was often at his victims’ bedside. »

‘CHiPs’ Star Larry Wilcox: New Movie Looks Like ‘Soft-Porn Version of ‘Dumb and Dumber”

23 March 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Larry Wilcox, one-half of the original “CHiPs” duo, isn’t too ecstatic for the iconic TV show’s big-screen reboot.

Although he hasn’t seen the movie yet, Wilcox, who starred with Erik Estrada on the NBC show from 1977 to 1983, isn’t sold on the new raunchy premise.

“I have not seen the film but the trailers looked like a soft-porn version of ‘Dumb and Dumber,'” Wilcox told the Associated Press. “However, I hear the actors are both very talented and funny, so maybe it all works.” He said he’ll likely “wait for the video” instead of watching the pic in theaters.

Way to go Warner Bros — just ruined the brand of Chips and of the Calif Highway Patrol. Great choice!” he also tweeted in January.

How do you adapt a show as bad as the cheesy 70s cop hit? As a daft, bland, squabbling buddy comedy with fart jokes, of course

How a Car Crash Led to the Arrest of a Man Allegedly Using a False Identity He Stole After Prison Escape

26 January 2017 2:14 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Florida Highway Patrol officers responded to a minor two-car fender bender in August, they went through the normal routine of documenting the accident and checking drivers licenses.

That’s when, police say, they found a discrepancy.

One of the drivers allegedly handed them a Florida driver’s license with the name Joel Dean Hanes, with a birth date of Jan. 15, 1949. When police ran the social security number, they found that the real Joel Dean Hanes had died as an infant on Feb. 1, 1949.

On Wednesday, police arrested the driver, identified as 64-year-old Stephen York, and charged him with six charges »

Last week the first trailer arrived online for the Chips reboot (which stars Dax Shepard and Michael Pena in the lead roles), and while it has received mixed reactions from the public, two former stars of the show have taken to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the new R-rated spin on the property.

First up is Erik Estrada, who did not directly attack the movie with his own words, but rather retweeted the following remarks.

Peña plays Frank "Ponch" Poncherello, who goes undercover in the Highway Patrol to investigate some potentially crooked cops. He is partnered up with Shepard's Jon Baker, who used to be a professional motorbiker and now needs a new job if he hopes to save his marriage. The pair bond »
