dramboxf: Something something necklace of Vaginas.
Atomic Spunk: And copious amounts of semen found in the chest cavity.
Slam1263: Wait, Patton Oswalt is a comic?Ok, I definately don't get his "jokes".
earthworm2.0: That's the whole article? .... Left me with my proverbial cock in my hand.....
freetomato: earthworm2.0: That's the whole article? .... Left me with my proverbial cock in my hand.....Find the EAR/ONS site she talked about. Lots of chilling info, including a recording of his voice.
Clutch2013: The one where Patton and his wife get whacked by fark fumes.One of the few out there who can reduce me to a giggling mess. He and Carlin got me through a lot of nights at work.
Minerva8918: freetomato: earthworm2.0: That's the whole article? .... Left me with my proverbial cock in my hand.....Find the EAR/ONS site she talked about. Lots of chilling info, including a recording of his voice.You probably already thought of this (or have done so already!) but I think you should share your experience on that board. It's interesting how "the Kid" brought up the geographical points to her, so I wonder if adding a new "possible targeted area" (where you lived), may shed new light?
jtown: Patton Oswalt is straight. Bullshiat.
dramboxf: The article gave me a random thought; I've even forwarded my question to a retired Sheriff's Lieutenant that I know; he founded our county's CSI lab 20 years ago.Would anyone have an issue if we took a DNA sample from every. single. person. that dies? Either in the ER, or at home, or at the funeral home -- wherever. If you no longer have a heartbeat, we take a cheek swab and it gets entered into the CA and FBI DNA databases. Why? Think of how many unsolved cases might be closed. Sure, the guy or gal didn't get his comeuppance in this life, and I'll leave all discussion about whether or not they'll be "punished" in the afterlife to others.Since the person is deceased, there's no 4th or 5th Amendment violations that I can think of, although IANAL.But, I'm smart enough to admit I'm dumb about a lot of things and don't see every issue from every angle. So, Farkers that are smarter than me -- what possible objection could people have to this idea? Think of being able to tell families of victims "You can rest easy, he's dead."Also, save some kind of cash on having cold-case squads not chasing dead suspects.
Arthen: comedian Patton Oswalt's wife, not what you done said.
Dimensio: Ignoring all other potential legal issues, establishing that a newly deceased individual committed a previously unsolved murder would rob police departments and prosecutors of the opportunity to potentially railroad an innocent individual for vindictive or petty reasons at some future time.
dramboxf: Would anyone have an issue if we took a DNA sample from every. single. person. that dies?
FARK rebel soldier: The obvious objection is next of kin's right to do whatever with the body but I wouldn't care.
pedobearapproved: I can see one issue, a murderer dies, the DNA matches. The family of the victims want some financial settlement from the murderers family. So the people that had nothing to do with the crimes and most likely didn't benefit from them end up paying for it. Picture a wife that's just lost a husband finding out a) he's a murdering fark and b) that retirement money that she needed to live is suddenly going to go away.
whither_apophis: 50 rapes, 10 murders, no arrests. Long Island serial killer: 10 murders, no leads. Green River Killer: 48 murders and they only got him when technology improved. BTK: missed the attention and basically stupided himself to jail. Any number of serial killers in the trucking industry, roaming around.Not quite as tidy as CSI makes out.
freetomato: Well, at least this case was impetus for a DNA database from the CA prison population. Not sure (and not of a mind to research it now) how many states do that now. I'd be ok with it being nationwide. It could free many innocents, and clear up many old cases.Where IS this bastard?By coincidence, my uncle is a retired Vallejo CA cop who worked a Zodiac crime. He was obsessed with the case and has theories that have been quoted by authors on the subject.
