The Real-Life Murder Clubs

Nicola Stow / Jennifer Woodward
In 2019 Netflix had a hit with documentary series Don't F**k with Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer. It was based on one of Canada's most infamous crimes: the 2012 murder of thirty-three-year-old Lin Jun by his porn-star boyfriend Luka Magnotta in Montreal. Magnotta filmed himself killing and (apparently) eating parts of his victim; he also mailed Jun's feet and hands to two Canadian political parties and two elementary schools. Prior to Jun's murder though Magnotta had anonymously posted online videos of himself killing kittens. Horrified Facebook sleuths worked tirelessly to uncover the kitten-killer's identity and location. Armchair detective Deanne Thompson a data analyst for a Vegas casino by day spent countless hours researching Lithuanian doorknobs among other things to help identify items in Magnotta's videos during her quest to unmask him._x000D_Nicola Stow reveals the fascinating stories behind this and and similar cases in which ordinary citizens in real-life murder clubs as in Richard Osman's bestselling fiction help to investigate crimes both recent and cold cases. In some cases armchair sleuths have hindered investigations and Stow explores some of these too.
