dramboxf: FARK rebel soldier: The obvious objection is next of kin's right to do whatever with the body but I wouldn't care.

That's not entirely true. I can't stuff my dead mother and mount her on the mantel. If it's part of the embalming process and proper chain of custody is kept... just saying, I think it's worth a discussion somewhere. I think the big question now is manpower. Just how many people die in a given day in say, NYC or LA?

Son, we need to have a talk.

I've read almost every book by Robert Ressler & John Douglas.  The Scott Glen character from Silence Of The Lambs was based on Douglas.  From what I've gleaned from those I can tell you that most likely the perpetrator:

1. Is dead.
2. Incarcerated.
3. Had a stroke and is an invalid.
4. Retired from killing.

Number 4 is probably the most least likely.  These guys seldom stop or find that they've had enough to satisfy them.  As they grow in their crimes they perfect their modus operandi and get better and better.  Something doesn't work the first time they will evaluate what went wrong and why and make a better plan. The other reason 4 is probably unlikely is eventually these individuals get to a point that they think they'll never get caught, and at some point they will get sloppy or make a big mistake. The Zodiac Killer is one of the few that for all intent and purposes "Seems to have gotten away with it".

On a lighter note after reading through the article and checking the sketches I think I've come up with the most likely suspect...

She deserves all the latitude she can get.

After all, she has to act passionate while balancing sweaty 220lbs of this:

Paris1127: LordOfThePings: RealAmericanHero: Did anyone actually click on that link at  http://www.ear-ons.com/ that says "If you are the East Area Rapist click here"? I'll admit I was too much of a pussy to click it, but I want to know what it goes to.

"If you are the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker,
your many victims need closure.

Please contact me here."

My alibi is I was in pre-school.

Reading through an EAR/ONS dedicated website, I came across this little gem, which leads me to believe that the killer is on Fark right now and we don't even know it...

/read the headline if you don't get it...

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.

Only because local police refuse to buy computers with enhance buttons.

I've studied the Golden State Killer's face, drawn from composite sketches made decades ago, more than my own husband's.

Well, who can blame her.

Kidding! Patton's awesome (I know you're reading this). Nice article, too.

ON THE RUN The Golden State Killer's telltale imprint: a size 9 tennis shoe

That let's me off: I wouldn't wear such cheap-ass shoes AND I take at least a 9.5.

To zero in on a victim he often entered the home beforehand when no one was there, learning the layout, studying family pictures, and memorizing names. Victims received hang-up or disturbing phone calls before and after they were attacked. He disabled porch lights and unlocked windows. He emptied bullets from guns. He hid shoelaces or rope under cushions to use as ligatures. These maneuvers gave him a crucial advantage because when you woke from a deep sleep to the blinding flashlight and ski-masked presence, he was always a stranger to you, but you were not to him.

Well THAT'S not creepy as hell or anything O_o
