The EAGLE TIMES(Sunday edition of the newly revived newspaper) carried an article on the VALLEY MURDERS and claims the 'heat is on' to catch or identify the serial killer or perhaps killers by the special task force for 'cold crimes'. While this endeavor is to be lauded, it comes far too late to produce anything really significant because some of the players in this are dead. Unless the old evidence has some things, especially DNA, it will require covering the old suspects which were extremely numerous. The exact number of such I cannot remember but it might have been up in nineties, let us say, 100. If photos can reveal anything, provided such were actually taken at the crime scenes and of the victims, then there may be a slight hope to solve these. The treatment of these crimes was sporadic and also the notion that 'one victim survived' might be misleading and even unrelated. Memories of things grow dim over the years and those who are dead are still crying for justice. Perhaps the murders still unsolved and considered 'non-related' were actual experiments and preparations for the 'real thing' but only the murderer(s) or killer(s) can answer that I suspect that their silence will be forever, taken to their graves.
