This winter I have hopes of updating Q Files, including a couple of pages to help round off the discussion on a more permanent basis on the investigation of EAR/ONS.
One, to put in place the article “There is No Golden State Killer.” So there is no doubt that moniker should never be used.
2, Elaborate on EAR’s weaving of several clues to give himself the appearance of a very complex Stalking MO.
3, The clues that favor an older EAR.
4, which is the subject of this article here– those clues which suggest bloodhounds follow an older scent on occasion.
Those who follow my Q Files close enough are fairly well aware of EAR’s general MO. He stalked a community from afar but on the night of the attack came in close and parked very near.
Examples of this include most noticeably opportunistic attacks– No. 4 where EAR stole the victim’s car and parked it about a mile away. No. 11 where EAR did the same at Victim 11 at [-]10 Glenville Circle, and a couple of others such as No. 32 where the victim lived on Piedmont on the levee but EAR followed her down Casilada Way to her babysitting job.
Supposed EAR trails were uncovered by bloodhounds in Davis indicating that EAR had once parked close to the municipal airport and then walked quite a distance to the communities. It is, however, quite unlikely on the night of one of the attacks that he risked walking over a mile to the attack and a mile back to where he had parked.
At No, 22 in South Sac the victim’s house is close to the end of the block, and it would have been very easy to simply park behind their house. But it is said that the bloodhound tracked EAR’s scent, strangely, over a short fence and onto Highway 99’s shoulder where, from the tire tracks, it looked like a Porsche had once been parked.
This is bizarre since it implies EAR would risk being tagged by parking so conspicuously where the CHP would see the car. This is right by a major onramp onto Highway 99.
If this is true, the significance is obvious: what kind of person in what profession could park on the shoulder of a major highway during the day, not raise any suspicion or interest from CHP, and take the time to meander about and stalk a neighborhood?
Huge eucalyptus were said to once be in the location (the highway is widened now and there is little shoulder space left and the oleander in the median is long gone). Could someone with tree service? Curiously, someone from that profession lived on 4th Parkway.
There are other examples, but the one above is the most interesting.
Or are we and the dog following another drag?
Since 1990 Gian J. Quasar has investigated a broad range of mysterious subjects, from strange disappearances to serial murders, earning in that time the unique distinction of being likened to “the real life Kolchak.” However, he is much more at home with being called The Quester or Q Man. “He’s bloody eccentric, an historian with no qualifications who sticks his nose into affairs and gets results.” He is the author of several books, one of which inspired a Resolution in Congress.
