Bill Beadle said in the Q&A that Douglas participated in the earlier 1981 study "at the University of Kansas" and that's where his first profile was made. Is this true? I assume he meant Eckert's work done for Wichita State University's "Ripper Project". I was under the impression that Douglas didn't get involved in the project until Eckert suggested him to the producers at Fox for the television program. I looked through old Casebook threads about the WSU stuff and saw that I was trying to track it all down 10 years ago. I received material from Stewart Evans but that was about as far as I got.
I do not believe Douglas was involved that early but I stand to be corrected.
