    That is clearly the degree to which this guy is a psychopath. Competently able to process the news and maneuver himself for a special release by emphasizing his ability to help with research. No thanks, Bundy II. (Every photo of him reminds me of Bundy.)

    I'd love to hear what grad students thought of working with him or if they ever had problems with him as a bit of a manipulator, liar, or threatening person. I also agree this CAN'T have been his first crime ever. I lived in Chicago when this crime occurred and spent a few weeks reading about it. I only just now thought to come check for a thread on it. I'm shocked more hasn't been revealed about his history. It's baffling.

    100% agree it was not his first rodeo. The accomplice - maybe. But not the professor.

    Wasn't there initially a claim that Lathem had taken drugs prior to committing the crime? Or was it just the victim who had meth in his system?

    Not sure...he was unlikely to have been high during the apparently prolonged period of discussing this online, and buying the accomplice's plane ticket and hotel reservations.

    My skepticism about L having committed murders before is because of how he made no effort to cover this one up....The victim was his partner and he left him in his own bed, even phoned the building manager to go into the apartment so he'd find the remains and call the police.

    If he'd killed before and gotten away with it, what happened this time to make him such an incompetent serial killer, who appears to have utterly freaked out with what he'd done and just run away?

    I wasn't asking about drugs in system in terms of motivation/inspiration to kill. Just curious if he was doing meth regularly while working in immunology for Northwestern! Ha.

    But I totally agree, that's a really good point about this guy. Everything about this was messy messy messy. That would suggest first kill. But, that goes back to the "This one will really stump the psych people" because he doesn't fit their profile. I mean, this is like Scream only Stu and Billy freak out with remorse, go on a road trip, and Stu turns into a witness against Billy after they donate money to a library in honor of Drew Barrymore. Like, huh?

    Just to clarify, my earlier reference to 'pharmacueticals' was more to the possibilty that medically prescribed drugs could bring on personality changes including violence. We know about 'roid rage, there's also some suggestions that antidepressants, pain killers, possibly others may have a rare side-effect in some individuals. It's not a defense, but there have been these suggestions.

    That's very true. And honestly his eyes always struck me as kind of not right. Plus I know at least two people who struggled with depression who went on to have significant personality changes after taking MDMA and hallucinogenics.

    Interestingly about victim, there was evidence of dramatic weight loss based on photos of the victim provided in the media. Makes you wonder if he was doing meth for weight loss? (Don't do drugs, kids. Have people not seen Breaking Bad?)
