    The Santa Monica Daily Press has been following the trial of Victor Paleologus, charged with the murder of Kristi Johnson in February 2003. Kristi, originally from Michigan, was going to college in L.A. and was an aspiring actress.

    This is one of those cases where it seems so completely obvious to me that the guy is guilty based on his history. I remember when I first read about Kristi's murder, and I felt so sad for her family. I know I'm not at the trial, seeing and hearing all of the evidence, but man, I hope the jury puts this guy away forever. There were so many close calls with other women, and I'm sure Kristi wouldn't have been the only one he killed if he hadn't been caught (I think she was his first murder victim).

    Here is the most recent article from the S.M. Daily Press:

    Here is a CourtTV article, with a photo of Kristi:

    Another punk sexual predator but more than likely has murder under his belt.I don't remember this case initially, but his behaviors are consistent with others that prey on people and escalate into the ultimate...murder.

    I hope justice serves him a nice dish.

    Yes, hopefully the jurors will consider Paleologus's past conviction and behavior patterns overwhelmingly convincing. If only there was physical evidence linking him to Kristi's murder, but unfortunately there is none (not produced so far by prosecutors, anyway).

    "(Defense attorney Andrew) Flier reportedly said in his opening statement last week that none exists and that his client is innocent."

    I think that this guy killed Kristi. I just don't know if there is enough evidence to convict him. If he is let go, he will surely continue to prey on young girls.
