With the Sacramento County Sheriff dump of information today on the Maggiore case, I will have to revise it on Q Files rather than write two opposing views. But to touch on a few here:
1, The two men so long touted as suspects were, in fact, not suspects for a long time, though opinion differed amongst investigators back then. They were identified and one was even polygraphed. Scratch the following composites.
2, The killer of the Maggiores wore a ski mask (black or navy blue balaclava) when he killed them, though neither the witness in the house nor Knollsch in his driveway describe one in interviews on TV (Knollsch’s footage is original and contained in documentaries. Following composite.
Obviously the theory that Brian Maggiore could recognize the killer and that this was his motive for silencing Brian and Katie falls flat. No Air force connection required. The composite above is also worthless for identifying anybody. Therefore:
3, The following sketch is NOT a revision of one of the 2 men walking away from La Gloria to West La Loma. It is a sketch of the masked man who took his mask off and was later seen jumping a fence onto Las Capitales and walking away from the area.
He is not 6 foot to 6 foot 2 inches as Knollsch estimated. A witness across the street compared their respective heights (knowing Knollsch’s height) and estimated 5 foot 9 inches.
I have to check if he had cowboy boots or what now.
Apparently EAR now frequently used a cinch knot, and this is the knot found in the ligature on the lawn near Brian Maggiore’s body.

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.
