EAR/ONS Update 6-25-2017

Sorry I haven’t been blogging as much, but I have been slammed with the release of The Bermuda Triangle II. The big advertising hasn’t begun yet, and I am partly to blame for that.

But Q Files is slowly being updated. The home page will become like my desktop, revealing to surfers my upcoming projects and dividing the projects according to how they will culminate: in web presentations or books. Cover-final-BTII

Now, as for DURON as a clue in EAR/ONS: There is a possibility  there was a connection. As a clue it comes down more to “CORN” than the paint chips. It was dark that night in Danville and the couple was taken by alarm at the man standing in the shadows. No one has “CORN” on their jacket. Crompton went nowhere with “COORS;” Shelby with “COACH;” and I with “COBRA.” Is it possible that DURON appeared as “CORN”  to the frightened couple?

Much has been said about the paint chips found at certain locations ion victims’ houses. In and of themselves they might not lead to anything, but when you find after-the-fact that your POI had family connections to such a paint business, you begin to wonder. He had two working parents. He may have worked both of their connections– in auto wrecking and paint supplies/real estate without showing any over connection with momma’s business.

Following the real estate angle has led investigators nowhere for decades, but if EAR had a connection with someone who dealt in supplying paint for new home construction and finishing he would have an inside into the locations of new tracts of homes being built. The paint chips would not need to come from him. They could have come from the workers finishing the home. But you can see the connection.  It was a way into neighborhoods without having a direct connection to construction.

So, the upshot is that tracing paint chips may go nowhere, but after-the-fact a connection with supplying paint is curious. Can the DURON logo appear as “CORN” at night, in the dark, from an angle, to a startled couple in bed?

EAR was unusually successful. It shouldn’t be surprising that he worked more than one angle during his crime spree in order to stalk neighborhoods, both up close and from afar.

For my POI, he had the connections. He had more than one apartment/duplex connection in the Carmichael area far from his official address in Placerville. He was outside of the dragnet. He had never been suspected. The process still grinds on to verify he was EAR or to clear him. But it remains surprising how so many connections turn up that potentially shed light on clues left in the wake of EAR.

His case is in good hands right now. We all wait. If there had been an autopsy they would get a DNA sample there. If not, it takes a little longer. We must be patient. The process moves along I’m sure.

EAR/ONS– MORE THAN DNA

If it turns out that RP is EAR/ONS, then we must speculate on what law enforcement may consider doing. DNA will merely identify him now, but there was a lot of stuff that EAR took from his victims. Where is it?

In my “Portrait of Terror” I reconstruct EAR calling from the wrecking yard after work, making his ominous hang up phone calls.  This still probably rings true. But there is the probability that he also used the Lincoln lair. It was an old house on Lincoln Avenue, demolished when the new developments went in around there. By 1983 it was gone, destroyed for Clover Knolls Ct. It had some good property behind it. EAR would have been completely unsupervised here, a teen off the leash in the Swingin’ Seventies. . . . if it is RP.

His family was now based far away up Highway 50. He would have been coming and going from work and perhaps some chores pertaining to his mother’s business. He would have been allowed to stay nights sometimes, but after HS graduation perhaps was allowed to live there. After the Summer of 1977, as we know, EAR’s pattern shows he branched out further, as if now based in the East Area rather than coming to it from up Highway 50.

It would be impossible to dig up the area today. But I suspect that if there is a DNA hit SAC. Co. LE will do some investigating in hopes of trying to identify the lair and where some of the goods might have been hidden. After all, DNA does not identify the infamous lair. Something had to happen to all that EAR had stolen. The stash of guns, knives? Maybe even the masks.

EAR/ONS– RP Finally in the Dragnet.

There is much I cannot say, as I said before, but a few things can be said. To recap: I was stifled about how to get handwriting on RP. I felt it was the quickest way to encourage that familial DNA be attempted. When EAR fled the Danville No. 48 attack he left behind paperwork with writing on it, ostensibly his own. I was searching court cases, with the hopes that he had written a deposition therein. As it stands, I doubt I will have to pull the case.  I have learned that if there is an autopsy, there will be a sample. They will go for the jugular and get DNA there. If not, there already is another way.

I was stifled because I had turned in RP a long time ago, but apparently it never went through official channels. I had no feedback. I thought that the prospect of familial DNA was too officially daunting with the evidence at hand. So I plowed on to get the handwriting– which I felt would then constitute probable cause. The current investigators don’t have that attitude. They will go for DNA.

I have held back stats on RP, but I suspect that they have run his license and background checks, etc, and discovered that his height and appearance and eye color match %100 EAR/ONS. There is also a tenuous connection with a company that may give us a better interpretation for “CORN”  on a jacket. It would fit what Santa Babs Co. sheriffs detectives discovered about paint chips and a Sac contractor working on that strip mall in 1979.

EAR/ONS– RAP in Pipeline

I am not at liberty to say anything, but many things have fallen into place recently regarding RP as being EAR/ONS. We will soon know. Apparently there had been a false start, long over a year and a half ago. For whatever reason I do not know my information was not processed. I do know now that some of the best in a DA’s homicide unit are on it (in a separate jurisdiction).

It doesn’t behoove me to speak of a few things that may make RP even more relevant right now, since it could just be coincidence. Of course, I am not being told things from within, other than what can be divulged to me. However, other clues have surfaced, but due to the fact he is officially being investigated for obtaining DNA there is little point in discussing these other clues, since, once again, they might just be coincidence. But if it turns out to be him, then a lot will be presented and much will fall into place.

It is no secret I have long wanted this case off my back. I have hopes that it is only a week or so away. If not him, I am sure it is one of those in the nest I uncovered. So then many more names will be turned in. With a direct line now to some of the best cold case guys out there, everything will be processed quickly and efficiently. I have a feeling, however, that this will not be necessary.

EAR/ONS– Too Hot to Talk About

I know I have not updated the blog for a while, but with a book release coming up (June 12) I have been slammed.  I have not updated on EAR as well for sometime. Much is going on, and though this may sound like a tease it is too hot to talk about.

Let me just touch on some of the motivation behind it all. I can deduce a few things: there is no suspect. The nationwide press conference a year or so ago did not bring in any viable suspect. Going over the old list of suspects did not cause any of them to be refined.

Yet it’s not being left there. I know that LE is very proactive and not just processing as tips come in.

Now as to the motivation: “The real life Michael Myers.” Nothing has conceptualized EAR as well as this. For someone as lousy at publicity as I am, it is amazing that I’m the one who chose the simile.  It succeeded. Every official investigator has probably been struck by the same reaction: this guy was unreal. More than one has read either Crompton’s book, my website, or the massive files on EAR/ONS, and then locked his doors and windows. I have received “official compliments” for my own work.

EAR/ONS was unnatural and unreal, but he was all too real. The hunt is on right now to scour Haddonfield and find him. Even if the dragnet fails, it will yield valuable clues. These clues will underscore what so many already accept: that EAR was that premeditative and careful. But it will also inspire a helpful direction. The dragnet will be widened and this will also open up some doors to pursue those who don’t seem like they are the usual suspects.

Let’s face it, we love to hate a villain. But there’s really only been a few worthy of world hatred– Jack the Ripper and Zodiac, to name a couple. Now EAR joins their rank as a villain we love to hate. Everybody who has tracked his bloody trail has smacked their lips in anticipation to nail this bizarre manifestation of night stalking.

Something like this doesn’t die off.

EAR/ONS– Another Anniversary

Well, I’ll be heading up to the Superior Court for another name search to locate more records soon. I hope the final piece falls into place in my quest. Another anniversary is coming up– the 40th anniv. of the EAR’s most terrifying month– 5 victims in one month. It is in curious juxtaposition to the Summer of Silence– the Summer of ’77. While the rest of us were enjoying repeated viewings of Star Wars, Sacramento was in a summer panic. Dr. James Gilmartin upped the Bee‘s reward and it came to $30,000 bucks. CB vigilantes roamed the East Area.

EAR was gone for the Summer of ’77. Was it all the citizen patrols?  It is possible. He never struck 5 times in a month again.

There are three clues back-to-back– the mania of May; the absence in the Summer; striking in Stockton when he returned. Three breaks in his previous MO.

The victim in Stockton heard a VW start afterward. A VW had been associated with EAR before this– a Baja bug.

EAR would return to Sacramento for his next victim. He would strike in a part of La Riviera where he had never struck before. Next he would strike in Foothill Farms– another new location. No. 26 was yet again in a new location. With 27 he came back to La Riviera. 28 was back in Foothill Farms. 29/30 was off Winding Way in another new location. Soon he would expand to Modesto and Davis.

Those who have followed my work know why I view the Foothill Farms strikes as significant at this point. But it can equally be said that EAR felt something had come close after his mania in May. He made a point to stop and then shift to new locations. He was intent on not getting caught, of course, but equally it can be said he was intent on continuing.  His dedication must have been something. It took him a while to learn new neighborhoods. Now he was learning new ones in Sacramento and, as Modesto, Stockton and Davis would prove, he would start using the highways and never venture far from them . . . except in Modesto.

This progression is also a stark clue. His first year he was limited to certain areas. After the Summer of ’77 he had enough time and freedom to expand, eventually hitting other towns.

In subtle ways his MO revealed that he already knew certain areas before he had started his crime wave– Del Campo Park area, Del Dayo, western Rancho Cordova. But it is more interesting to note where he did not prowl. He could not afford to be seen in a neighborhood where he had grown up and could still be recognized. Which area within juxtaposition to these did he not prowl?  I keep coming back to Stollwood Park. He struck only once in an area his MO would have regarded as ideal.

All these are clues. All of these are stepping stones in the path to uncovering EAR. Hopefully, my next court visit is the final stepping stone.
