I saw this recently on Comic Sands – Serial Killer ‘Expert’ Confesses That He Fabricated Much Of His Past—Including The Murder Of His ‘Wife’: https://www.comicsands.com/serial-killer-expert-bourgoin-con-2646001572.html. Longer article. It begs the question on why he felt the need to fabricate so much information.

An anonymous group of French investigators called “4ème Oeil Corporation” (4th Eye Corporation) exposed the truth about acclaimed serial killer expert Stéphane Bourgoin.
The group’s digital investigation found that the French author pulled off a decades-long con by convincing much of the world into believing his wife had been raped and murdered in 1976 by a serial killer.
Bourgoin had long been regarded as an expert on murderers and often lectured police on the subject.
He also critiqued media depictions of serial killers.
