You're a master detective, Fish. It's a loss to humanity that you didn't choose a career in law enforcement.
How can I dismiss any evidence at all? I am not that familiar with the case. But I do know that the moniker the Grim Sleeper was given since there was a parceived gap in the killings. And I do know that other killers have had such gaps too. And - as I said - I am certain that a number of the undisclosed serialists simply stopped killing.
Whether I am a master detective or not is as written in the stars. I think I have a pretty solid case against Lechmere as well as for the two series being the work of one man only. And as far as I can tell, I am entitled to that stance.
And of course, you are entitled to scorn and laugh and make a fool of yourself over it.
Reasonably, one of us is being productive.
