    Attaching SCDA pic again. Exact distances are across the bottom.

    Eta ~ here are the exact breakouts, in meters

    Distances:

    Costello & Barthelemy: 0.16 mi = 257.495 m
    Barthelemy & Barnes: 0.05 mi = 80.4672 m
    Barnes & Waterman: 0.07 mi = 112.654 m
    Waterman & John Doe: 0.28 mi = 450.616 m
    John Doe & JT: 0.62 mi = 997.793 m
    JT & Jane Doe 6: 1.43 mi = 2301.361 m
    Jane Doe 6 & Baby Doe: 0.04 mi = 64.3737 m

    The above is why I think LE put out the 500m myth.
    How did all of this precise information get lost and why are True Crime shows and reporters still inaccurately telling the public that all four of the GB4 were placed 500 feet apart?

    BBM

    I think for pretty much the reason shadowraiths said, the pattern makes it more likely to be one killer, one killer makes the whole scenario a better story so the media runs with it
