    Police probe whether Oregon killer was connected to missing Skyway woman

    The King County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in figuring out how a man serving a life sentence for murder may be connected to the disappearance of a woman in Skyway in 1985.


    Detectives said they want to hear from anyone who may know of a connection between Rambus and Jesse Pratt, a convicted murder.

    Pratt called himself “The Candy Man” and had contact with many of the teens in the area where he lived, police said. He has a long history of violence against women and is currently serving a life sentence in Oregon for the 1986 murder of Carrie Love, a Seattle woman.

    So... I can't help but wonder why they never suspected Gary Ridgeway. Did this Candy-man person confess or something?

    It's been almost three years since they announced this connection between Rambus and Pratt. Did they ever conclude that he was responsible? He turned 80 this year so if he was involved, I hope he reveals the truth soon.
