So, in case you haven’t heard, Stockton, CA has a serial killer currently out there shooting mostly Hispanic men. Six victims are dead (one in Oakland) and one, the only female victim so far, was wounded.
Now, if you know anything about me, I’m a true crime junkie and I am fascinated by the psychology of serial killers. But, this is something very different.
I don’t scare easily. I do my best to stay safe. However, I do like to walk in the early morning hours. The idea that someone is out there just ambushing people in the dark has strongly curtailed that.
I’m still fascinated by the minds of serial killers and I want to know the what/why/how of this guy’s head…he seems to be maybe on a mission…why?
Also, given the technology we have in this time and place, it seems weird that this kind of crime got this far without the person getting caught. Why did it take 6 deaths to tie these crimes together? How many more will it take to find this person?
There’s a task force in place and they released a surveillance video of a “person of interest” but considering that it’s only of the person from the back walking in what looks like an apartment complex, all it tells us is he’s tall and slender and was dressed in dark clothing.
The reward has been raised to $125K for info leading to arrest and conviction.
So, yeah. That’s the state of things where I live right now. I hope y’all are somewhere safe and sane and stay that way, Readers! Puppy picture above is your palette cleanser. Look at that face!
