    It would be good for Honaker if the DNA could match that of Nicholaou. One of the articles says that many still believe he was the rapist despite that not being his DNA. The rape victim still says he was the rapist.

    Interesting stories Dark_Shadows.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everyone's got one. This one is mine.

    There was a book written several years ago called The Shadow of Death about these murderers. Just wanted to post it in case anyone is interested. It's by Philip E. Ginsburg.

    The segment on Unsolved Mysteries of the Jane Boroski attack is one of the scariest things I have ever seen.

    New interest in Connecticut River Valley serial killings
    A missing woman. A murderous husband. A man with a long-kept secret. A St. Petersburg investigator is still on the trail.


    Anna Agnew's sister, Barbara, was likely the victim of a serial killer who stalked the Connecticut River Valley in the 1980s, slaughtering six young women, maybe more, and dumping their bodies in the bucolic borderlands between Vermont and New Hampshire.

    The man was never caught.

    THE VALLEY KILLER
    Wednesday, January 25th, 10pm

    The Connecticut River winds lazily through the small border towns of Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire. It's a tranquil place… beautiful, peaceful… where people still stop and lend a hand to a stranger.

    But for some, it is a Valley of Death. And for one man, it is his hunting grounds. It's been over 20 years, but New England is still haunted by THE VALLEY KILLER.

    Between 1978 and 1988, seven women are snatched from lonely roadside locations — jogging, hitchhiking, stopping at a pay phone, or getting a soda from a vending machine. Each one is brutally murdered; stabbed multiple times in what look like fits of rage, their bodies often left in wooded areas, sometimes side by side.

    Who is this predator? And why does he kill? True crime author M. William Phelps seeks answers from a woman who survived the serial killer's brutal attack — and may be able to identify a shocking new person of interest.

    To build a portrait of this monster, Phelps turns to master profiler John Kelly, and Kelly's secret weapon — a convicted killer code-named "13", a Dark Mind who knows just what drives a man to take another human life.
    Aside from the fact that I think the actual program is nothing special, the cases they profiling are among the most intriguing unsolved mysteries, as it were.

    Something I made note of though, the lone survivor of the Connecticut Valley Killer (Jane Boroski), has again identified yet another person as the man that attacked her in 1988.

    Four years ago, on an episode of THS Investigates (on E!), she identified Michael Nicholaou as her attacker. On this show, she was shown a photograph of this informants father and said it was the most visceral reaction she had had, to date, and now claims this NEW suspect was her attacker.

    I wonder if police ever completed DNA tests on Nicholaou that were being conducted in 2008/9? As I recall, it was thought that there perhaps was some DNA evidence by which LE could exclude or include a suspect.

    The mystery goes on...

    Looks like you all may have some sleuthing to do!

    This guy lived in the area and was born approximately around 1960, so in '78 he would have been 18. The woman he's now accused of murdering was killed in '86. He did leave the area in January of '88 and of all places, was caught in the area I now live in. Thank goodness he's behind bars!

    Now, are there any other cases connected?

    Time will tell!

    fwiw,
