    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.

    How sad that the family had to find out their pretty young daughter was likely the victim of that monster.

    Looks like IDing the vics could drag on for years - there's still too many on this list:

    Human skull found in Auburn ravine


    King County detectives have reportedly found more bones at the bottom of a deep ravine in Auburn near West Valley Highway where a human skull was found Tuesday.
    A resident whose teenage children found the skull Tuesday while exploring said detectives told them today they had also found a lower jaw bone and other bones. It isn’t known if those bones are human.
    The bones were discovered at the bottom of a 200-foot-deep ravine off South 292nd Street, even with about South 296th Street.
    Both ends of South 292nd Street are blocked off by law enforcement, neighbors said.
    Tim Hagan, who lives on the west edge of the ravine, said his two teenage children and friend found the skull about noon. He said it was located deep in the ravine below their home and on the east side.

    Rebecca R. Marrero


    Above: Marrero, circa 1982

    Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance

    Missing Since: December 3, 1982 from Seattle, Washington
    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Date Of Birth: August 4, 1962
    Age: 20 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'0 - 5'1, 98 - 115 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Hispanic female. Black hair, brown eyes. Marrero has a tattoo of a cross on her left hand and another tattoo on her arm. Her nickname is Becky and some agencies may refer to her as Rebecca T. Marrero. Marrero may spell her last name "Merrero." She may use the aliases Vicky Johnson, Vicky Marrero and/or Rebecca Fashaw.
    Clothing/Jewelry Description: A blue denim dress and white tennis shoes.

    Details of Disappearance

    Marrero received a phone call at the residence she shared with her family in Seattle, Washington on December 3, 1982. She asked her mother to watch her child for the evening and then left the house. Her family stated that Marrero frequently kept odd hours. She did not have any personal belongings with her that night. She has not been seen again.

    Marrero may have been a victim of the Green River serial killer(s). Other possible victims of the murderer(s) may include Pammy Annette Avent, April Dawn Buttram, Marie Molina Malvar, Patricia Ann LeBlanc, Kristi Vorak, Kase Lee, Kelli McGinness, and Patricia Osborn. Avent's body was located in August 2003, twenty years after she was reported missing. Buttram's and Malvar's bodies were found in September 2003. None of the other women have been located and all cases remain unsolved.

    Ridgway was charged with aggravated murder in four of the deaths linked to the Green River killer(s) in December 2001. Photos of Ridgway are posted below this case summary. Ridgway had been one of the suspects in the case since 1984. Authorities questioned him that year after witnesses placed him with two of the victims and his pickup truck was identified as being at the scene of the victims' last known locations.

    Ridgway's home was searched in 1987 and he provided a saliva sample at that time. DNA testing was performed on the saliva in 2001 and matched three of the victims: Opal Mills, Marcia Chapman and Cynthia Hinds. The women's bodies had been discovered in the Green River near Seattle in August 1982. Ridgway was connected to the fourth victim, Carol Christensen, through circumstantial evidence.

    Ridgway was arrested twice for soliciting prostitution; once in 1982 and again in October 2001. Many of the Green River victims were runaways or prostitutes. A 1980 charge against Ridgway was dropped when a prostitute claimed he choked her. Ridgway told authorities that he attacked her in self-defense, as she was allegedly biting him. One of his former wives came forward after his 2001 arrest and claimed that Ridgway preferred to have sexual relations outdoors. She also said that he often employed a chokehold while engaged in sexual activity. A prostitute who stated Ridgway paid her for sex in the early 1980s supported the story, stating that he attempted to choke her during intercourse.

    Ridgway's residence and his parents' home were searched after his 2001 arrest. Authorities discovered an envelope containing bone fragments, tufts of human hair, numerous blood stains, boxes of latex gloves, costume jewelry and several wigs. Many of the assumed Green River victims were missing jewelry and/or wigs at the time their remains were discovered.

    Ridgway is married and his neighbors considered him to be a family-oriented individual. Profilers have said that he does not fit the mold of most accused serial killers, as he did not seek attention for his crimes.

    Prosecutors announced in April 2002 that they would seek the death penalty in Ridgway's case. Authorities have located several of his former vehicles and purchased his pickup truck and camper from their current owners in May 2002. A photo of his truck is posted below this case summary. Ridgway owned the truck during the early 1980s, the time when many of the victims disappeared or were discovered deceased. Investigators stated that they hoped to uncover evidence related to the murder cases inside the vehicles.

    In a surprise move, Ridgway pleaded guilty to 48 counts of murder in November 2003. He agreed to cooperate with authorities in exchange for them dropping the death penalty specifications against him. It was he that led them to the bodies of Buttram, Avent and Malvar. Ridgway will serve life in prison with parole instead of facing execution. With his cooperation investigators hope to uncover the remains of the other victims.

    A number of comments in this (KOMO news) article are stating that Ridgway may now be eligible for the DP if he didn't previously admit to having murdered Becky.

    Becky was one of seven previously identified possible victims that he was not charged with...but the Wikipedia article is unclear whether he denied killing her or not.

    It is difficult to discern if the comments in the news article have any merit, but it brings up an interesting question-- if he did deny killing Becky or keep LE from finding her remains, should his "deal" for revealing the whereabouts of the other victims be null and void?

    A second issue is whether they can actually tie her murder to Ridgeway with the evidence that they have.

    I think they will be able to. She was found in the same location as Marie Malvar, who he did admit to.

    Edited to add - Sorry, I apparently have no clue how to post. That was in response to the gentleman who was asking about them being able to tie her murder to Ridgway.
