That issue was devoted almost entirely to the case of Jack the Ripper. Thereafter invited to participate, he joined the staff of the publication, going to take over the "police report" to which drafted reports on famous criminology and criminal cases. Sometimes produced feature articles that occupied most of the respective sample, for instance, the June 2009 work entitled "Serial Murderers: Scourge of Humanity”.[9]

Such contributions were reproduced in various cultural publications, printed on paper or as digital.[10] This work eventually became the basis for the creation of his book "Stories of Murderers",[11][12] at the phenomenon of serial crime and adventures of the dark characters who have acted in this framework.
