It may only be a small detail, but in a case this old and frustrating.. well, people here would surely understand how exciting that might be.
That's mindblowing! I mean, in the grand scheme of things it's not going to solve the case or anything, but I remember reading the original thread where people were dissecting the audio. Some speculated that EAR/ONS made the call from a clinic or a hospital because they could hear a woman in the background calling for a doctor. Turns out it was a line from a movie!

It's not yet clear (to my knowledge anyway) as to which end of the line the background dialogue was on, though - EAR's or the victim's - but at least that area of speculation has a definitive answer now.. very exciting!

What's frustrating (but quite understandable) in this case, is that few people are willing to openly discuss suspects, as there's a chance the EAR is still alive and out there somewhere... If he is, I have little no doubt he'd be very computer-savvy and keeping an eye on discussions...I'm sure his ego would demand it.

The gap in murders between 1981 and 1986 bothers me.

I don't see him being in a mental hospital because he probably wouldn't have appeared to be crazy plus, by this time, his stay in that type of facility would have to have been voluntary.

Nor do I see him in prison because I think authorities would have put two and two together regarding a convict inside for that time frame and asked him for a DNA sample by now.

The military is a possibility.

I have wondered if he eventually slowed and quit because his wife or mother found him out and threatened to turn him in if he didn't stop. Maybe the last murder was one he thought he could sneak in.

The other possibility is that he did kill in that interum and the murders were just not recognized because he was in another area or altered his m.o. somewhat.

Over Seas? Are there any similar unsolved crimes in other countries during this time period?

I don't think he ever was identified but if he ever comes on radar there will be DNA evidence. Prince Vlad of Wallachia had a tried and trusted method of dealing with people such as him.

Best regards.

I should have posted this previously. A detailed link which goes over almost every attack. Forget the sites poi aspect, but as far as detailed description of the attacks and m.o. are concerned it is extremely good.

btw yesterday Sac Police dept held a press conference on the case. Nothing new of great importance other than an enhanced composite sketch.
