There was apparently a serial killer who used the same method to troll for victims as the villain in Patrica Cornwell's POSTMORTEM. This reportedly upset the author very much, which is supposedly one of the reasons she's said to be shy about making public appearances.

After the bank robbery/North Hollywood shootout of some years back, there was speculation that the robbers may have been inspired by the bank robbery scene from Michael Mann's film HEAT. Whether or not that was ever confirmed I can't say for sure.
