In Tallahassee, Florida, early one cold winter morning in 1978, a mad man entered the Chi Omega sorority house near the Florida State University campus, and viciously attacked four women. Two would die. A fifth woman was brutally attacked just blocks away. Authorities urgently searched for the killer leaving no stone unturned. If psychics provided persuasive links to the killer, why not use them? Joseph, a young music student, has visions of the killer. Lieutenant George Brand, an investigator on the task force, promised the victims’ families he will do what it takes to catch the assailant. Joseph brings his visions to Brand and, within weeks, Theodore Robert Bundy is arrested. Helen Baxter, a young newspaper reporter, is unexpectedly approached by Joseph, who claimed to have provided key psychic details that led to the capture of Bundy. Would Bundy have been captured without Joseph’s help? Was there a psychic link between Joseph and Bundy? Helen is skeptical, but Brand verifies Joseph’s involvement in catching the most notorious killer in recent memory. This is the true story of the hunt for, and capture of, Theodore Robert Bundy.

In this provocative cultural study, the serial killer emerges as a central figure in what Mark Seltzer calls 'America's wound culture'. From the traumas displayed by talk show guests and political candidates, to the violent entertainment of Crash or The Alienist, to the latest terrible report of mass murder, we are surrounded by the accident from which we cannot avert our eyes. Bringing depth and shadow to our collective portrait of what a serial killer must be, Mark Seltzer draws upon popular sources, scholarly analyses, and the language of psychoanalysis to explore the genesis of this uniquely modern phenomenon. Revealed is a fascination with machines and technological reproduction, with the singular and the mass, with definitions of self, other, and intimacy. What emerges is a disturbing picture of how contemporary culture is haunted by technology and the instability of identity.
Media representations of law and order are matters of keen public interest and have been the subject of intense debate amongst those with an interest in the media, crime and criminal justice. Despite being an increasingly high profile subject few publications address this subject head on. This book aims to meet this need by bringing together an important range of papers from leading researchers in the field, addressing issues of fictional, factual and hybrid representations in the media -the so called 'docu-dramas' and 'faction'.
