    This is terrifying, bless to the family of the victim. I am sure they're until now hoping for justice.

    Has anyone found any info on active serial murders in that same area around that time? I think it might be worth looking in to.

    I think by watching the two Albany detectives speak, they genuinely are wanting to solve this case. It's a shame, so much time has passed between 2002 and now. Someone out there knows who the monster is who took Kim's life and I believe this crime will be solved. It's heart wrenching she had 3 young children that have had to endure this. I'd like to see the bank video, that may bring some tips in.

    The storm would make the witness aspect very tough.

    Surely this has got to be one of those “follow the money” cases? It’s stating the obvious but heavy drug users invariably run up debts to their dealer, and dealers invariably consider bad debtors to be entirely expendable.

    I’m sure detectives have investigated this aspect in great detail, but this would easily explain the run to her mother’s house to steal check books and jewellery the week before her death, which could’ve been a last ditch effort to clear some of what she owed to an increasingly impatient supplier. Probably not the street dealer she regularly dealt with IMO but the king pin, or the areawide distributor sitting between the street dealers and the king pin in the supply chain (who, like a bank, takes a mortgage - except this one is over your life).

    I hope they resolve this case.

    A hard core user of( say Meth) could
    easily run up and or steal for their
    own demands and or drug needs
    I saw a user write over 30000 dollars
    in bad checks that were traced back
    to her, to feed her habit.

    New leads in the case are always good, however , old leads are better. “Time” in this case will probably be the investigators friend, relationships change and judging by the people involved and there’s probably a past girlfriend / boyfriend or other relationship that didn’t end so well since then. The people that used to be afraid to talk about what they knew about this might not be So afraid anymore .

    In no way am i an expert in any forensic or psychological field, but heres an opinion of mine i'd like to share.
    In the report it says she was found strangled and partially clothed, this would be highly atypical of a murder by a drug dealer and both of these aspects imply some form of sexual gratification for the killer. These types of killers are known as sexual sadists and following the nature of a typical sexual sadist, it's likely that he has other victims but unfortunately it is incredibly difficult to impossible to determine a pattern based off of a single victim. To find other potential victims one should look through other unsolved murders dating back a few years prior and from 2002-present. It is shown by the fact he left the body in a public dumpster that he either wanted her to be found (less likely) or is inexperienced and needed a quick solution (more likely). Combining this knowledge, one should either look for prior/later victims following a very slight trend of being middle aged women with high-risk lifestyles killed by strangulation (likely a fetish) in NY state or look (in the same timeframe) for high-risk women killed in personal, sexual methods such as stabbing or strangulation. Methods that fit this trend will likely align with some form of touch between the killer and the victim with the stabbing example being the penetration of the knife into the body that would arouse a killer.

    Hoping the family can get justice for her murder. Would be great if it came while her mom is still alive.
