    At the time of the Atlanta child killings, it was common wisdom among profilers that serial killers usually killed within their own race. That's probably why Douglas and others assumed the killer would be black.

    Of course, there are people who are not saying Wayne Williams was not really the killer.

    I don't remember too much about the unibomber,except that he was very well educated,PHD I believe,not bad looking,at one point wanted to be a woman but backed away from a sex change,and lived alone in the woods with his bombs. A real woman,a date,a wife,I don't recall one,but maybe someone else knows.

    Singular and Douglas? How weird is that?! I thought Singular was a pretty good writer, and he had done some good digging for his angle on the case. Unfortunately, he hadn't finished his research before he published his book. All he really had were leads. His book is worthwhile mainly for the extensive info from Pam Griffin.

    Yeah, Smit is a smart guy. It only took him 72 hours to figure out which position would put him in the limelight--so he got on that road and hasn't left it.

    So true. AND, the coup de gras is that he's on Keenan and Kompany's 'fresh eyes' team!!!!! Oh, mah gawd.

    IMO, Smit has made a fool of himself by going so public with ludicrous evidence such as the basement window, etc. Anybody can see that forensics would be left ALL over the place, the way that Lou came in that window. Geezo Peezo.

    The "FOX" put the BPD on his nose, swimming across the water, but I think the FOX got eaten in this case. Vivé la fables, eh? LOL

    Why is everone quick to defend Foster, but you say this one article discreditsa any info that Douglas has given any murder investigations so far? What about the ones he has been correct on?

    And the BPD has never shifted on their position, either. Maybe the DA told ST that all he was doing was organizing files because the BPD made a mess of the whole investigation. Of course someone needs to organize the files! I wonder if they even had all the info in one room!

    Also, the BPD made the assumption that the parents were guilty as soon as the body was found. Was that enough time to "devour the case material?"

    I hardly think the DA would have told ST that Lou Smit was there to clean up his mess, do you?

    I don't think anyone really expects Douglas to have a perfect batting average.

    I agree that his website was a let down. I didn't go there expecting a carnival though. Just some info on some cases he has worked.....I don't pay attention to anything he sells, because I a'int buying it anyway, so it doesn't matter.

    Besides, I see very few websites (or anything else, for that matter) that don't have something for sale.

    Boy Howdy!!! His batting average, unless you ask HIM, of course, has really gone down hill, along with his reputation. Don't rule him out, though, as trying to hang onto the R's skirttail to get himself some much wanted attention. This is JMO.

    So how did Foster not "cut his own throat" by writing PR a letter saying that he believed she was not the writer of the ransom note and he would stake his professional reputation on that fact? He had just as much as Douglas did?

    I see no comparison between Foster and Douglas. ******* gave Foster false info to work with (she lied)...well!!! Wait! Did the R's give Douglas false info, too?

    But didn't Douglas take the backlash when that was released to the public? No one in Atl wanted to believe this was a black offender. (Some still don't)

    I think Douglas may literally not remember why he said the Green River killer letter was a fake. He was very ill at the time he was working on the case. The illness has been described in several different ways, but all affect the brain. (I'm not being sarcastic, I really think he may have lost memory of that time.)

    If Douglas was that ill at that time, and knew it, why would he be doing such important work? Of course, if he wasn't seeking active treatment, that'd be another story. However, I think if he was that ill, he'd be under a doctor's care and surely not doing such important work. JMO, though.

    Blazeboy, I haven't read Douglas' new book but I have to wonder why he partnered himself up with Singular.

    We've been over this MANY times before. Foster wrote that note before he saw ANY of the case evidence. He wrote it with high hopes of interjecting himself in the case.
    Later, after seeing ALL the evidence it was obvious to him who wrote the note--and none of his previous wishful thinking could change that.

    If Foster had never seen the case evidence he would probably be walking around to this day telling people that Patsy is innocent in his opinion.

    My recollection is that he didn't realize how sick he was til he collapsed. He was then hospitalized and almost died. I believe he had an infection or inflammation of the brain. He was quite delirious, if not actually unconscious, for days.
