A new documentary tonight looks at the chilling case of ‘Wolverine’ killer Jed Allen — who murdered his sister, mom and her boyfriend in a fit of rage.

Allen was 21 when he carried out the triple murder using a hunting knife then scrawled ‘I’m sorry’ on his bedroom wall using their blood.

CopyCat Killers on ReelzChannel tonight looks at how he was inspired by the X-Men character Wolverine, who he was said to be obsessed with, and “found strength” in him.

His mother Janet Jordon, 48, was an alcoholic and heroin addict, with both heroin and methadone found in her system after she died despite her undergoing treatment to try and come off the drug at the time.

‘Robocop’ Killer Seduced Beautiful Women Who Didn’t ‘Deserve To Live’

A terrifying episode of Reelz’s Copycat Killers, tells the disturbing story of crazed Robocop fan Nathaniel White and his gorgeous victim, Juliana Frank.

The crime show recounts a day in the life of the delusional criminal, when he made his most disturbing obsession a deadly reality.

Juliana Frank lived in a nearby town, one which White often drove by, seeking beautiful women who — as he often said to himself — “didn’t deserve to live.”

She was a beautiful single mother in her late twenties, an unattainable catch for somebody like White.

The Reelz series reveals the chilling way in which White used his charm to seduce Frank after spotting her walking on the side of the road.

As insiders recall, the only way to get around in that deserted town was by car, a fact which made White’s victims feel vulnerable, or somewhat trapped when he approached them.

White’s innocent-looking

Murder Made Me Famous: ‘Craigslist Killer’ Prosecutor Says ‘Evidence Was Overwhelming’

Before 2009, Philip Markoff was a preppy Boston University medical student. At the time, his doting fiancée Megan McAllister told PEOPLE that he was “a beautiful man inside and out.”

But the perception changed in April 2009, when Markoff, then 23, was charged with the armed robbery and murder of Julissa Brisman in a Boston hotel room. He was also charged with additional armed robberies, each involving a female victim that he met through ads placed on Craigslist.

Markoff maintained his innocence of all charges, and pleaded not guilty. While awaiting trial in 2010, he committed suicide.

The story gained international attention, even landing on the cover of PEOPLE. Trial watchers couldn’t get enough of the clean-cut med student who attacked escorts to pay his gambling debts.

‘Preppy Killer’ Robert Chambers: Where Is He Now?

It was a shocking crime that first made headlines in New York City – and then quickly spread across the nation.

In August 1986, 18-year-old Jennifer Levin was found by a cyclist in Central Park. She had been strangled. Arrested for the crime: Robert Chambers, a handsome 20-year-old who had attended several prep schools and spent a semester at Boston University.

The case was soon dubbed “The Preppy Murder” and became a daily fixture in newspapers and on tabloid television.

Chambers was arrested and charged with two counts of manslaughter. His defense argued that Levin’s death had occurred during “rough sex.”
