    I'm watching it right now, but missed the first 30 minutes. The book by Anne Rule is good, too.

    The Ann Rule book was excellent. I put off buying it for so long because it was just "about prostitutes" in my mind, who put themselves at risk. Sure, I felt sorry for them, but...

    I was SO wrong. It was a very moving and enlightening book. Most of the ones killed by the Green River Killer were very young women, many teens, who just had hard lives or hit a hard patch and sold themselves just out of desperation or ignorance. It was an eye-opening book.

    The book was Ann's best, in my opinion, and that says a lot!

    TY. Because of your post lastnight, I finally got to see part 1.

    I think Lifetime did a great job on this movie.

    I only seen part of it, I want to see the whole thing. I am going to check Lifetime to see when they are showing it again. What I seen of it was really good.

    This case has always fascinated me and I have read every book on the subject but one thing I cannot figure out is who is "Rose".

    She was a victim of GRK and mentioned in Ann Rules' book but from the list of victims, I cannot figure who she is.

    Does anyone know?

    I didnt have any extra cash on me this week, so I went by the library and checked the book out by Ann Rule. I'll probably start reading it tonight.

    While I am reading the book, I will try to pay extra attention to 'Rose' and see if I notice something that you didnt catch.

    Did you see the movie ?? The reason why I ask is because there is a victim point of view person telling part of the story in the movie. Is that what 'Rose' does in the book ??

    "Rose's" story in the book on page 161 sounds like Helen in the movie. Rose doesn't tell the story in the book though. Is Rose the real name? I don't know why there is an asterisk beside it.

    Angela Marie Girdner, Another Green River Killer victim identified

    http://www.oregonlive.com/tualatin/i...dentified.html

    "State medical examiners have used dental records to identify the remains of a girl police believe was a victim of Gary Ridgway, the Green River Killer.

    .....the Oregon State Medical Examiner identified the remains as Angela Marie Girdner, 16. The Portland girl was a student at Beaverton's Valley Catholic High School when her parents reported her missing in 1983, sheriff's office spokesman Sgt. David Thompson said."

    RIP Angela
