How serial killers capitalize on chaos, according to an expert

How serial killers capitalise on chaos, according to an expert

In 2017, the University of Wisconsin-Madison was ranked by the Princeton Review as the top party school in the United States, but it’s also the focus of my recent true crime title, Mad City.

That’s because in the wake of the summer of love in 1967 – from the late 1960s through to the mid-70s – the university was a much different kind of place.

It was a period when anti-Vietnam War protests and inevitable counter-protests supplemented draft-card burnings. Sit-ins meant to waylay political visits and right-of-centre speakers were all at high tide.

Sound familiar?

The UW campus at the time was the epicentre of a particularly vitriolic brand of hyper-partisan tribalism as members of the Chicago Seven, and the more violent Weather Underground, were assembling in what was a progressive island in an ocean of old-fashioned – and often intolerant – dairyland social conservatism.

How Making A Murderer Helped Netflix’s The Keepers Happen, According To The Creator

Ryan White was responsible for such winning documentaries as The Case Against 8, Serena and more, so it’s understandable that he came at this project early on with the scope and parameters of a feature film in his mind. That was three years ago, though, at a time when the legwork was certainly being done on Making a Murderer and others, but before U.S. audiences had any idea just how overwhelmed the collective consciousness would get with the stories of Steven Avery, Brendan Dassey, Robert Durst, Adnan Syed and, in a fictional sense, O.J. Simpson again. Once the concept of a quasi-serialized true crime TV show became a viable option for a storytelling avenue, the door was open for The Keepers to take over anyone with justice on the brain.

According to the family, Labang’s friend went to Labang’s apartment and saw his car parked outside.

The family called police then knocked on his door. Labang’s cousin Mel, said they were “shocked” when Labang answered.

Bobby said Labang seemed “stunned and not himself.”

Mel said Labang seemed healthy and unharmed but was hesitant to talk about his whereabouts over the past several days.

A friend of the family, who is a doctor, is staying with Labang to make sure he is OK, the family said.
