If DeAngelo is the correct man, I am hoping very much to learn what he has been up to these last decades. Did he stop killing, did the urge evaporate, did he get too old to pull it off or what? Or did he kill all the way up to now? Will we find out?
Good point Fish!

The reasons for his periods of not killing clearly have resonance with the Whitechapel murders ( and possibly the torso murders).

See, I have been paying attention!

I am reminded of Rader's given reason for the lull in the BTK killings, his children were young and he reckoned that they needed the full time attention of a loving father.

Yeah.Hoping to learn more.Also the identity of the Zodiac Killer.Here in California there's lots of nutheads.

I read that he has three kids. One was born in 81 and another in 86. I don't know for sure if it's significant but these years do kinda correspond to him stopping and his brief return to killing.

It is at the very least interesting - if he is the correct man, which he seems to be.

Apparently he was cop during the time. Talk about a double life!

I've been following this since I read Michelle McNamara's book. Something about the police press conferences reminds me of Ronald Gregory et al the day they caught Peter Sutcliffe.
