*SERIAL KILLERS-
A TERRIFYING LOOK AT THEIR ORDINARY LIVES:
The stereotypical version of a serial killer often is portrayed in Hollywood and crime novels: A young, white male who is extremely cunning but mentally disturbed slays scores of women to satisfy his sexual needs.

The reality, however, is that most mass murderers lead ordinary lives despite their perverse deeds. Few look like the most infamous serial killers in history — with only about 12.5 percent of US serial predators fitting the profile of a 20-something, white male, according to the Serial Killer Information Center, a project at Radford University that studied more than 4,700 mass murderers.

The FBI and Serial Killer Information Center define a serial killer as someone who murders two or more people in separate events.

These mass murderers aren’t generally reclusive misfits, but people who live in plain sight in the community, according to the FBI. Many are married, educated and gainfully employed.

Like the general population, documented serial killers span racial groups, range in intelligence and are both genders.

*Nearly 20 illegal immigrant juveniles skip deportation hearings,
disappear into shadows each day:
On any given day, nearly 20 illegal immigrant children skip their deportation hearings and disappear into the shadows, theTrump administration said Thursday, putting contours on the difficulty the government faces in trying to stop the flow and protect the children.

More than 200,000 of the juveniles — known in government speak as Unaccompanied Alien Children, or UAC — have been released into communities in recent years and remain there, many of them ignoring deportation orders and others awaiting a judge’s ruling.

Yet top senators say many of them are “lost,” with the federal government having no clue where they are, how to deport them, or even whether they’re being abused.

“Shocking,” said Sen. Rob Portman, Ohio Republican and chairman of the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, which is probing the matter.

*John Lennon’s Killer New Mug Shot … Parole Hearing Upcoming:
The man who shot and killed John Lennon will have his 10th parole board hearing this week … and TMZ has just obtained his latest mug shot.

Mark David Chapman — who shot the Beatles member in front of Lennon’s Manhattan apartment in 1980 — has been serving 20 years to life after pleading guilty to 2nd degree murder.

Now 63 years old, Chapman will go before a parole board in New York sometime this week in a closed hearing … and a decision will be announced in the coming weeks.

He has been denied parole 9 times since December of 2000.

*Mollie Tibbetts Murder Suspect Cristhian Bahena Rivera ‘Passed E-Verify Background Check’:
The farm that employed the man suspected of murdering 20-year-old University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts has claimed he passed a government background check and that the company had no idea that he was an illegal immigrant.

The status of suspect Cristhian Bahena Rivera has come under scrutiny after President Trump directly blamed immigration laws for the alleged murder. But Yarrabee Farms, which is owned by Craig Lang, a prominent member of the Republican Party in Iowa, said in a statement: “This individual has worked at our farms for four years, was vetted through the government’s E-Verify system, and was an employee in good standing.” E-Verify is an online system run by the government for employers to check the eligibility of its workers.

It’s unclear how Rivera could have passed the system—he’s an illegal immigrant from Mexico, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and a detainer warrant was issued for him Tuesday.

*Aretha Franklin Left No Will or
Trust, Says Her Attorney:
Aretha Franklin left no will or trust before her death last week, her attorney says, sparking fears that competing claims on her assets may have to be played out in a public courtroom.

Her four sons filed a document Tuesday afternoon listing themselves as interested parties in her estate, while Franklin’s niece Sabrina Owens asked the court to appoint her as personal representative of the estate.

“I was after her for a number of years to do a trust,” said Los Angeles attorney Don Wilson, who represented Franklin for nearly 30 years. “It would have expedited things and kept them out of probate, and kept things private.”

The lack of a will could prompt a court battle over her assets by creditors or extended family members seeking a portion of her estate.

“I just hope it doesn’t end up getting so hotly contested,” Wilson said. “Any time they don’t leave a trust or will, there always ends up being a fight.”

Separately, at Tuesday night’s Detroit Tigers game, a rainbow appeared over centerfield during a moment of silence as tribute from the Queen of Soul’s hometown.

*This drug lord has replaced
El Chapo as world’s most wanted:
He’s a former cop-turned-hitman whose paramilitary-style cartel once shot down an army helicopter and brought Mexico to an armed standstill.

Now Nemesio Oseguera Cervantes — known as El Mencho— has replaced El Chapo as the most wanted drug lord on the planet.

“He’s public enemy number one,” said Paul Craine, a Houston-based security consultant who headed the federal Drug Enforcement Administration in Mexico during the 2016 arrest of Joaquin Guzman “El Chapo” Loera. “And he’s got an army of thousands of bad guys.”

Last week, federal DEA agents and high-level Mexican security officials — the same group that captured El Chapo — met in Chicago to announce a series of joint initiatives against El Mencho and his criminal enterprise, the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación, or Jalisco New Generation Cartel. The powerful criminal syndicate, which controls dozens of drug routes to the US, Europe and Asia, has now surpassed El Chapo’s Sinaloa Cartel as the dominant underworld force in Mexico, according to the DEA.

Last year, El Chapo was extradited to New York, where his federal trial on murder, money laundering and drug trafficking charges is expected to begin in a Brooklyn federal courtroom in November.

Birth Order
The first theorist to suggest that birth order can affect human psychology was Alfred Adler (1870-1937). In short, he argued that firstborns are “dethroned” by a second child, which permanently affects the firstborn’s personality.

Additionally, younger and older children may be spoiled and pampered, which also permanently affects their later personalities.

*EXAMINER–MEDIA INSIDER:
Is Omarosa Manigault Newman banned from CNN? The controversial former White House staffer and ex-Donald Trump crony has been hawking her book, “Unhinged,” on rival MSNBC, but hasn’t been able to book an appearance on CNN.

Don Lemon was offered one of the first cable interviews and passed,” an insider said. We’re told Manigault Newman was also scheduled to appear on Jake Tapper‘s “State of the Union” on Sunday, but CNN canceled the appearance.

*EXAMINER-INVESTIGATES:
Red Heads
1. The highest concentration of redheads is in Scotland (13%) followed by Ireland (10%). Worldwide, only 2% of people have red hair.

2. People with red hair are likely more sensitive to pain. This is because the gene mutation (MC1R) that causes red hair is on the same gene linked to pain receptors. It also means redheads usually need more anesthesia for dental and medical procedures.

3. Having red hair isn’t the only thing that makes some redheads unique. They are also more likely to be left handed. Both characteristics come from recessive genes, which like to come in pairs.

4. Redheads probably won’t go grey. That’s because the pigment just fades over time. So they will probably go blonde and even white, but not grey.

5. Rumor says Hitler banned marriage between redheads. Apparently he thought it would lead to “deviant offspring.”

6. Redheads most commonly have brown eyes. The least common eye color: blue.

7. Bees have been proven to be more attracted to redheads.

8. Being a redheaded man may have health benefits. A study published by the British Journal of Cancer suggested that men with red hair are 54% less likely to develop prostate cancer than their brown and blonde-haired counterparts.

9. Redheads actually have less hair than most other people. On average they only have 90,000 strands of hair while blonds, for example, have 140,000. However, red hair is typically thicker so it still looks just as full.

10. Some of the world’s most famous redheads include: Lucille BallJulianne MoorePrince HarryAnn MargaretRon HowardMolly Ringwald, and Conan O’Brien.

*EXAMINER–HISTORY:

Final Public Execution in the US (1936)

In 1936, convicted rapist Rainey Bethea was sentenced to be hanged in Owensboro, Kentucky, at a time when such hangings were conducted publicly.

Because the county sheriff supervising the execution was a woman, the case sparked national press coverage, and up to 20,000 spectators gathered to watch the event, the last of its kind in the US.

Two years later, the Kentucky legislature officially put an end to public executions.

*EXAMINER–COMMENTARY by Allison Arieff:
In her new book, “Natural Causes: An Epidemic of Wellness, the Certainty of Dying, and Killing Ourselves to Live Longer,”Barbara Ehrenreich writes: “You can think of death bitterly or with resignation, as a tragic interruption of your life, and take every possible measure to postpone it. Or, more realistically, you can think of life as an interruption of an eternity of personal nonexistence, and seize it as a brief opportunity to observe and interact with the living, ever-surprising world around us.

*EXAMINER-A DIFFERENT VIEW:….

*EXAMINER–OVERHEARD:  

***David Foster’s daughter Sara said her father’s “essence and aura” has always attracted women, even her friends. Sara Foster, 30, told Us Weekly at Amazon’s Back-to-School Prepevent in Los Angeles that her 68-year-old father is “like forever young.”

“His essence and his aura is that of like a 40-year-old,” Foster said about her father. “My 30-year-old friends have always wanted to date him. Always!”

Foster also spoke about her father’s engagement to singerKatharine McPhee, who is 34 years younger than David Foster. The couple announced in early July they got engaged during their romantic trip to Italy. The news caused such a stir that McPhee, 34, defended her engagement on social media.

***Hilary Swank has tied the knot. The 44-year-old actress married fiancé entrepreneur Philip Schneider in a “timeless” ceremony at the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, Calif.

“It’s a stunning private community surrounded by 20,000 acres of conservancy and an intimate redwood grove populated with trees that are over 800 years old,” Swank told the outlet of the venue.
