A quick summary for those who don’t know what’s going on in the hunt for The NIGHT PREDATOR — The East Area Rapist aka Original Night Stalker.
I know of two major investigations going on and of a number of POI turned in this year alone.
Many are familiar with my close group of POI within auto-wrecking and how one just recently skyrocketed to interest. As things were getting interesting, Sac. County Homicide Ken Clark contacted me for my thoughts. I turned in this POI and took a much needed break. I have hopes Clark is pursuing him, despite some of the improbabilities.
For months now I’ve been hearing of a POI who is worried about being charged with accessory in EAR related crimes. Since all the rapes are outside of SOL, it could only mean it has to do with the murders. There is no information that EAR while killing in Orange Co., Ventura Co, and Santa Barbara Co., had any accomplice. This would narrow it down to the Maggiore Double Murders in Sac County. Although no one was sure EAR was responsible, it was heavily suspected. Two persons of interest were seen at the general area of the crime scene. Ligatures were found that indicated EAR was afoot. This is, in fact, the case. The Air Force Office of Special Investigation and the FBI are the ones working that angle.
Thus there are two major veins of investigation now– Sac Co. Homicide looking into RAP and the Feds and Air Force working on a link to EAR/ONS through someone who could possibly have been the second man seen out on La Alegria and La Gloria in connection with the Maggiore Double Murder. The ligatures found at the scene are key here. This means there could be DNA.
There are also a number of persons of interest still being turned into So. Cal jurisdictions. In all I would say dozens have been turned in this year, 4 specifically in relation to the Maggiore murders. Let’s hope something comes of this.
As I said, I intended through my investigation and its fruits displayed on The Quester Files to either solve the case or be a significant link to doing so. So far I am very proud to say that the years I spent re-stalking this predator has certainly paid off by placing this crime spree at the forefront of cold case consciousness. It’s not going to go away anymore. And with the details on my site, no one will be able to devolve this case into legend.
