Kindly welcome long-time poster "murdoc" as a new forum moderator.
The message board has been growing quite rapidly in the last several months, so much so that it's hard for me to stay caught up. I typically spend 3 to 4 hours here per night, sometimes as much as 6, reading and responding to PMs, helping posters find information, and generally trying to keep the board functional and free of impediments.
As a result of all that time here, Mrs. Drifter has laid the law down. And it would not do to argue with Mrs. Drifter .
So, murdoc will assist with management chores, though I will still be here as "Global Moderator". I told murdoc that the job paid well; when he wants time off, he will get paid exactly the same amount as if he were on the job. >> exactly $0.00/hour.
I'm sure you will show respect for murdoc's decisions, as you have so kindly showed respect for mine. We can't all agree on the twists and turns in this complex case, and it would be a dull board if everyone did agree. Indeed, that's the point of any message board; to discuss, to exchange ideas, to propose theories and ideas, and to agree and disagree on various topics and theories.
From this point forward, kindly direct any questions and comments you may have to murdoc. I expect a transition phase, during which time, there will be some confusion and possibly delays in responding to PMs, and questions from the board. That is natural and to be expected. But over a period of time, as murdoc gets comfortable in his position, and as members adjust to two moderators instead of just one, the board should settle down into a comfortable routine.
To be a part of this case and learn the things that I have, I am honored. While I do find that unity is the missing piece of every puzzle, I will do what I can to fill the gap and help when I am needed. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity and I will do what I can to not let anyone down
Speaking of welcoming our overlords, I think you need a new avatar now, Murdoc. Something fitting for your new status. Something that speaks authority yet nods playfully toward the repetitive duties of a moderator.
I'll be away from all computers for about a week beginning tomorrow, Sunday, September 18th to approx Sunday September 25th. Murdoc will be around throughout the period, so if y'all have questions or a problem send murdoc a PM.
sammyt: Like JJD, a decade long offender. Organised, commuter rapist with possible linked murders. Long gaps in the series. DNA profile but no match on the system. Possible early Snelling style murder. Likely an older offender with no major/recent criminal record

sammyt: Like JJD, forensically aware. Attacked more than once some nights. Returned to attack areas years later. Possible car and auto wreckers links. Physical offender who gave himself a chance to escape on foot. Avoided local heat but knew the attack areas well

sammyt: Today marks thirty years since the first confirmed Batman attack took place on May 21st 1991.

dannymac: Sammy gotta keep plugging away your guy could be round the next corner

sammyt: Thanks! Shelley Morgan was an American mother of two, who was murdered in the UK in 1984. Like the later Batman victims, just a few miles away, she was stripped then made to put on tights.

sammyt: A big shout out from me to Bill Thomas, cleo, and all those tracking the CPK. Respect and keep plugging away too!

elir: And to Jay7777 for his efforts on the murder of Maggie Long

f1guyus: Interesting. The arrest of the accused molester was made by a non Stockton agency using a Ramey warrant. The local DA was kept out of the loop.

sammyt: I hope the view that only Californian victims count is a minority one. The Batman is the third most prolific uncaught serial rapist in the world.
May 26, 2021 10:07:15 GMT
sammyt: The two most prolific uncaught rapists are the Teardrop Rapist and the Early Morning Rapist - both from California. Who is trying to get justice for those 'close to home' victims?

elir: Some people think the EMR was JJD.
May 27, 2021 3:31:01 GMT
sammyt: Walter Hamilton was an EMR suspect. Funny how JJD seemed to be trying to frame Hamilton at the start of the EAR series.

elir: they have DNA for the Teardrop rapist, surprised that LE havent been able to track him down
May 28, 2021 2:26:22 GMT
sammyt: Yeah I'm surprised too that the Teardrop Rapist has evaded justice. He had at least 35 victims and he needs to be caught. An innocent guy also spent 16 years in jail for 3 or the Teardrop attacks.
May 28, 2021 16:44:49 GMT
sammyt: Fortunately it seems like the Teardrop was scared off when the police started canvassing Hispanic areas in 2012. Either that or it's the usual possibilities of him having died, or him being in prison for something else (with his DNA sitting in a backlog)
May 28, 2021 16:48:12 GMT
sammyt: As for the EMR, I think there's a good chance it was JJD. He hit the ground running as the EAR. Not many serial rapists are trying to frame others from the get go.
