    I think looking for vehicles could be a dead end. There were so many different ones and most probably had nothing to do with EAR/ONS. He used bikes and walked. When he did drive he would park away from the homes, so no one could tie his vehicle to the scene.

    Does anyone know if Robert Pickton the Canadian serial killer has ever been considered as the EAR/ONS?

    The MO is totally different. Pickton brought women to his farm, EAR/ONS attacked in the home. Also EAR/ONS had to live in and around his first attacks, not in Canada.

    When I hear "Rancho Cordova", I think "junkyards".
    Rancho Cordova is home to the biggest auto salvage yards in CA, when you look on a satellite view, the junk yards are a big part of the town. You can get parts for any car there, I have been and it is miles and miles of junk cars.
    If he worked at the junkyards, he could have used old vehicles before they were crushed, burying any evidence forever.
    It would also explain why the tag numbers that were traced were connected to cars that were sold as junk.

    Hi guys. I've been on vacation, and took along some reading material, Detective Shelby's book, to line up dates and times. Okay, the thing is, EAR couldn't have been him because we worked in San Jose and he was almost always there Mon.-Fri. nights. He obviously had time for doing creepy things locally but no way could he get away with driving to Sac all that time. EAR did strike twice in San Jose though. Also, Shelby's not sold on that sketch being accurate. Still it's a very odd coincidence.


    Shelby's chapter on Carlos was interesting, though he refuses to name a #1 suspect, the fact that he stills lives somewhere in California on a boat no less, is creepy and a little suspect since that makes any DNA collection extremely difficult.

    That rules out your co-worker as EAR, but not as the other person of interest in the Maggiore murders.

    As I said before, I don't think that sketch is EAR. It's very hard to reconcile with EAR sketches from other events: The jaw is too angular, the face isn't narrow enough. The other Maggiore sketch is a better fit.

    (That sketch does kind of look like the Visalia Ransacker, though. Or at least, my pet theory of the week is making me think so.)

    Lurker here, first time poster. In middle of listening to the 5 part podcast casefile on this. Terrifying to say the least!!

    a random thought I have is, did anyone consider a phone operator? Obviously he is brazen and has what seems to be a military background. Law enforcement maybe but if one could 'tap' into any phone calls, wouldn't he be able to discover much of the information he seems to have gotten by stalking. Vacations planned, who's in the house, even law enforcement conversations about him and said victims. Every time they put a tap on a phone line, he would stop calling. One victim had said after changing her number and moving, the calls kept coming. He could have listened to many diff phone conversations if it was possible. He seems too 'invisible' yet always a step ahead it seemed. Even with all the police attempts at surveillance and the repeated locations he hit. He still managed to elude and stay ahead of the detectives. He must have had some sort of unseen advantage.

    Just a a random thought is all but a telephone operator/worker could possibly have access to a lot of information that could have been used. I do not know what the phone systems were like back then (I was born in 76) but would it have been possible to 'tap' into phone calls if you were in the industry?


    They also suggest he got his information from the DMV. Which would make sense to get information from. And going off this assumption, how common place was it to change your phone number with the DMV when you moved? Who would get the updated phone number so quickly? How did he get it...

    Anyone have insight on the phone industry back then or personal exp in the field?

    Welcome to Ws Timechangeseverythin!
    Interesting suggestion about the phone operator, makes me think also of phone line repair persons high up on poles with excellent sight lines..

    EAR had too much time on his hands, which makes me think he was college student or had a rich family and didn't need to work. He started to slow down in later years. Maybe he graduated from college and found a full time job, and didn't have much free time as before?

    add to your theory that he mostly struck the single story houses. That of which he would have seen over and around single story houses from atop a pole.

    Going off both posts about phone operator, phone lineman....since he seemed to be "fairly young" any chance he may have learned something from one of his parents (slyly) who were in some business he could have gathered info from? Any ideas of what he could have learned from their professions etc. Just a thought...

    One reason I suggest this is because he seemed to be quite brazen, confident and had evolved very quickly. Just seems he must have been working on his perfection from a young age. Where could his knowledge/opportunity have come from? Just a thought that maybe he was privy to something that assisted him in his crimes that another criminal may not have been.

    Just an idea for anyone willing to think what occupations, opportunities, information etc. he may have learned back in the 70's, I believe.

    Interesting theory that could have some weight in his possible “expertise”. I’m not real familiar with phone systems back then but maybe something to consider if the mother/father was in the industry.

    Just so spooky and I cannot believe he was never caught.
