Now Kodiak first of all let me say you raise a very strong point but at the cost of being a bit taboo psychology wise serial killers tend to stick to the area they know. And from what little we know about Valerie Reyes she was for all intentive purposes a decent girl. LISK seems more attuned to escorts and prostitutes. Now I’m not saying your theory wrong; in fact I’m 60% sure you’re right, there’s just a small part of me that is saying there’s something that is not there that should be or vice versa.
Yes, serial killers usually do prefer to remain in familiar territory, but I'm not sure if that's the case when the heat is or may be on in a SK's preferred location. Also, there's nothing that says Greenwich is unfamiliar to LISK.
For this part, I apologize, I am so not trying to pick on you but in all honesty this peturbs me. I don't even know the proper way to say this but not all escorts and/or prostitutes are "indecent". The stereotypical image of prostitutes are usually unkempt, streetwalking drug addicted women. Sex for sale is a multi-billion dollar industry. The indecent women you refer to are not making billions, I'd be willing to bet. There are many, many "upstanding, decent" women who sell sex. I think you'd be amazed.
Although, I wholeheartedly agree with you that given the information we've learned about Valerie, she certainly comes across as a decent young woman.
I totally respect all the thoughts and opinions from my fellow sleuthers regarding my post about this case possibly related to LISK. Yes, the victim was a very decent young woman. Her death is an absolute tragedy. She may not have been involved in the sex worker industry, but she could have been an automatic prey to a predator such as LISK. It could have been the case that he encountered her in her fragile state of mind and took advantage of that and her. But then, as one poster stated, there is the possibility she got involved or forced into sex trafficking. That could would be another related variable to LISK. And serial killers can change their M.O. and the locale of his murders and dumping sites. As a Seattle native, may I present Ted Bundy. Also, LISK did not just kill prostitutes and escorts. He also kid a three year old child. Was the child a sex worker? No, the child was not. So is there a chance that LISK could kill a non sex worker? Yes, there is!
That's an interesting idea.Complete speculation, thoughts for now- imo.
VR apparently expressed her fear that she would be murdered, but did not reveal by whom or why.
Wondering if she might have written a name or detail on a bed sheet, perhaps tucked under a pillow for safekeeping?
But it was discovered and the sheet torn into strips...?
