I borrow the name from one of my favorite movies: Putney Swope, by Robert Downey SENIOR (junior's father).
I live in California; grew-up in Orange County (OC) and now live in northern CA (SF/Bay Area). Being a native Californian, I have a personal interest in the serial offenders in CA. I'm also interested in a number of other serial murders in CA, including the Santa Rosa Hitchhiker Murders, the Gypsy Hill Murders and the Zodiac case, to name a few.
I'm relatively new to the GSK case, so don't feel like everyone is an expert.

I'm Agent 99 aka Sandia. Now that I have uploaded my first avatar ever, I decided it was a good time to change my name to the name I wish I had used from the beginning -- "Agent 99", Maxwell Smart's partner in the "Get Smart" T.V. comedy series.
I used to live in the Goleta neighborhood where the crimes took place but had moved away two years before Offerman/Manning. I didn't know I lived so close to the crimes until about 4 years ago when an article I read mentioned the streets the crimes took place on. I was shocked to find out I had lived very close to the victims. Previously to this I never had much interest in true crime, but since it hit so close to home I became VERY interested in finding this killer.
sandia, that sounds like me, a bit. I wasn't very interested in true crime, but I live 5 miles from San Quentin and became curious what goes on there. I also live next to the cemetary were the first(?) female death row prisoner is buried. Those things kinda piqued my interest
Relentless here, never heard of this case until the LA magazine article came out several months ago and became interested right away. It was a pleasant surprise to find out there was a community of internet sleuths working on it and decided to see what I could offer in the hunt for this madman EARS.
Relentless out (sound of microphone crashing to the floor )
LOL I just looked-up what cerulean means. HAHA. I guess we do have a blue theme
Sometimes I feel like he's very "close", too. Not that I'm close to making a breakthrough, but just that I can feel his presence is too overwhelming and he will be caught.
The color scheme worked out nicely. I never have to worry about what to wear
I hope you can't smell his presence like the detective Stone in the Sudden Terror book. Even though I know what he meant, every time he said he could smell him, I would have the visceral reaction of smelling man sweat and B.O. When I read a book, I want to feel like I'm there, but just not close enough to smell it ;p I feel like there are too many clues not to get this put together. He made some mistakes and I think we are seeing them now.
Haha, no I can't smell him. But I have this picture in my head. I agree, with 50+ violent crimes, there's so much there, he must have made mistakes.
I should've been more discrete in bringing this up...I'm building up a thread based on this ("possible other crimes of the GSK in OC"). There's a couple of the EAR composites were you can see similarities to this one. Anyway, its kinda how I picture him. With lighter hair. I believe there's another victim/witness description that has him with blondish hair, which is closer to how we "know" him.
warren, here - from the old board. I live outside of California. One of the old board members gave me a list of about 20 names to run, and I have found a few interesting things. Not enough to turn in yet and I still work at them. Fairly good at data mining. The hardest thing about this case for me is I'm real unfamiliar with the suburbs, neighborhoods and surrounding cities of the various towns, so people may be talking about an area that is totally familiar to them, but I'm without a clue. I have to rely on a well-worn California road map.
elir: Take one out of the car, separate then can control. he isnt talking about two people, though.

elir: It is hard enough to lose someone you love but to have no resolution, all those years. I cant imagine. Hope that other people that have been through this can give them support.
