Being someone who has studied serial killers for most of his adult life, and not because it was “cool” but because the mind of a serial killer is a fascinating thing to learn about. What takes a person and turns them into a murdering monster? How can one human do that to another? That is what has interested me, and still does to this day, so this “festival” is one of great interest to me as it dabbles in everything from serial killers to other true crimes that includes rare video footage, live presentations, and rare artifacts, evidence, and serial killer artwork. Check inside to see if it is going to be close to you.
True Crime & Warped Minds – Come and Trip the Light Forensic
For the first time ever True Crime Experts and Enthusiasts get together and talk turkey about the world’s most heinous crimes and the criminals that perpetrated them.
This multimedia show is like CSI turned upside down! It includes rare video footage, live presentations, and rare artifacts, evidence, and serial killer artwork that will be on display for examination and insight. Every show will feature different special guests from the true crime world who will take part in a forum discussion that will enthrall and disgust, and it will all be broadcast live on the internet for ‘Three Ring Radio’.
Nothing is too taboo for these folks, they have all been de-sensitized by years of research and experience. See a live murder attempt caught on video– by the victim! Different guests in each city will explore the gruesome details of the crimes that they have studied, prosecuted, survived, or been involved with the perpetrators. Find out the truth, draw your own conclusions, and hear the real facts for the first time! Forget the narrow reports from the newspapers– These stories prove truth is stranger than fiction!
The event is hosted by Three Ring Radio barker Shane Bugbee(www.threeringradio.com) and includes his wife, horror writer Amy Bugbee(http://www.whoreofhorror.com). Other guests include Joe Hiles, founder of the informative website ‘Serial Killer Central’ (www.skcentral.com), and artist Doug Mesner. Several true crime filmmakers will screen movies, including ‘H.H. Holmes: America’s First Serial Killer’, and a rare collection of artifacts will be on display. Be warned, some of the images presented here will follow you to the grave.
