Hello! This new site is fantastic. Thank you to the Admins for the new look. 🙏🏼❤
I wanted to re-create a thread here that was on the last crimewatchers.net site and is no longer 😢
in 2015, I was very interested in looking back into the West Mesa Bone Collector case. I have an admittedly OCD fascination with tracking serial killers who have yet to be apprehended and theorizing their movements/potential victims etc. With that being said, I decided to attempt a comparison between the West...

Just starting another thread since one hasn't been re-started since the crash of '20.
The SFPD said, soon after the GSK was nabbed, that they'd use a similar technique with the Zodiac's DNA. Due to the amount of time that has passed, I'm assuming nothing came of it.

remember the murder & seeing her burned home near their apartment.

This case is technically "solved"; however, many questions remain (not the least of which is: was an innocent men executed?). I was living in Waco for several years; left a couple of months before this happened. I knew Vic Feazell casually- he was having trysts w/ my room mate.

Also, the...
