    I have to disagree with you on Kemper, he puts it across like he wanted to stop, but I believe he only turned himself in because he knew he was going to get caught not out of guilt or because he wanted to stop. He comes across as though he feels remorse and deep just a nice guy but in truth his just as evil and twisted as Bundy or any of the others. But I love the series guys keep up the good work.

    I just started watching this channel. I love it, it's great. But I can't help but think it's the Buzzfeed child of Shane Dawson and Good Mythical Morning.

    “So you’re a serial killer?”

    On rewatch of the main video and the Q+A, I don't think it's possible that Peggy Swinney was the killer. She sounds very sketchy, but one witness said that the person who attacked him was a man, and a later victim was raped and murdered. Just seems unlikely that it was actually a woman, or that she did one murder in the exact same fashion as the active serial killer.

    My oldest son he's 29 now used to get so mad at me and his dad bc every time we watched Home Alone 2 we would always tell him *That would kill you, don't ever do that" when the brick drop scene came. It was hilarious.. You had to be there.

    I think it’s so weird and ironic that Ryan, who believes in and loves crazy ghost and demon theories, is so vehemently against kooky absurdist comedy like the Hotdaga and free range grass. Like you’d think bonkers fiction would be right up his alley, as a believer...

    Shane shouldn't rely on a tv show for factual depictions of serial killers. The majority of serial killers do not want to be caught.

    6:45, uhhhh, problem with this theory. One of the victims was apparently raped.....not sure how a female perp lines that up....

    As far as their booby traps go, Shane is practical and Ryan is childish.

    Me and Ryan thought the same thing that what FreeRangeGrass wrote sounded like the Hot Daga. I don't think Shane wrote that though. I don't think Shane is FreeRangeGrass but he could be. Who knows

    Funny how people's tastes can vary incredibly. That guy wants more paranormal videos, but I couldn't care less for them. I love the True Crimes that take events that actually happened and try to decipher the mysteries aspects of it
    The supernatural episodes just feel like wild speculation and superstition with no basis in reality, as the events themselves even happening are often questionable.
    But then there are some that do overlap like the Phoenix Lights that is a mix, bc it is a real event but it also seems paranormal, so for me it's worth them taking time to also make the supernatural episodes to deal with events like those

    Serial killers actually do in fact some times copy others. If they have that part of their brain broken that compels them to want to kill, sometimes they study other famous killers to see what kind of killing they enjoy the most. There was a whole episode of Criminal minds about this.

    Wanna be detectives? that was TRASH. Two of the victims were raped, so it had to be a male.

    Most serial killers are thought to be similar to addicts. They can't just stop without help or getting caught.

    Shane said gun through peephole. I immediately thought of the trap in Saw 2 where Gus was shot through the eye through the peephole

    That alternate theory makes no sense since the victims were attacked by a 6 ft Male, not a 5 ft something female
