I always get excited when a true crime series is released and a university in Tampa is featured in a new true crime series on Hulu.
Yesterday a new series dropped on Hulu called The Lesson is Murder. Of course, being the true-crime junkie that I am, I had to check it out. The series follows criminology professor and former FBI Special Agent Dr. Bryanna Fox.
Dr. Fox teaches a class at the University of South Florida. This series looks into the minds of serial killers to look at why killers kill. In each episode, Dr. Fox, along with graduate students reinvestigate three different murders. The first is serial killer Will Davis, a nurse who killed four patients. Another is Robert Fratta who killed his wife in a murder-for-hire plot. And the third is Ivié DeMolina who was convicted of heading up robberies that resulted in the death of two men.
ABC News Studios is behind the series that has produced other true-crime series for Hulu Wild Crime: Murder In Yosemite (which I highly recommend), Still Missing Morgan, Killing County, Death in the Dorms and Web of Death.
The true crime series The Lesson is Murder is streaming on Hulu now.
10 Serial Killers Whose Crimes Were Committed In Florida
The current Netflix craze “Dahmer” has a lot of people intrigued by the term serial killer. Sure, we all remember the big names like Gacy, Dahmer and Bundy. But there are so many others who strategically sought out after their victims right here in Florida.
As we all know, Florida is typically thought of as being a vacation destination for families heading to Disney, spring breakers flocking to the beaches all along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, and of course the snow birds who make their way down and sometimes never leave. When we think of Florida, aside from the raging home and gas prices, we typically have happy thoughts.
Well, not so fast! Who knew how many serial killers committed their crimes right here in Florida?
You may have heard of a few of these names. Aileen Wuornos who was famously portrayed by Charlize Theron in “Monster”, well, who could forget her? Then there’s perhaps the most infamous of all, Ted Bundy, known for his massacres at Florida State University, among other crimes.
