I'm an Internet wanderer -- using and studying technology, information and the intersection of the two. I'm also a social media researcher, journalist, technologist, podcaster, thinker, trouble maker and community and social media manager.
This gets to the heart of the problem of this piece. This piece has a complete lack of respect for evidence or what we know. It’s based on what some people think or feel. This piece doesn’t even convince us that there were additional victims, which would probably be the first step.
Instead it relies on the hazy memories of people from about 40 years ago. Hazy memories of things people think they saw or that they found off. Well, John wayne Gacy was a serial killer who dressed like a clown. I’m sure a lot of people found interactions with him to be odd.
We know people’s memories aren’t good right after the fact, let alone decades later. We also need a reason to believe that the police don’t care about investigating this further. That’s never really explained.
