10/18/19: Houstonia – Crime Stoppers Enlists Real-Life ‘Mindhunter’ for Gala Keynote

This month’s event raised $433,000 for public safety initiatives.

Just two months after Netflix released season two of its critically beloved true crime series, Mindhunter, the man behind the whole phenomenon came to Houston to discuss his groundbreaking work.

Retired FBI agent John Douglas wrote the book on criminal profiling—literally: the Netflix series is based on Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, the 1995 title Douglas co-authored with Mark Olshaker. Crime Stoppers of Houston secured Douglas as the highly anticipated keynote speaker at this year’s gala, and he took the stage earlier this month to recount his incredible experiences studying and interacting with the country’s most gruesome murderers.
