From July 10, 1981:
Well he managed fine by himself when working as a security guard on a private estate,killed two young women,all on his own.
I just hate him.
He is also suspected of the Alphabet murders of the early 70s.
Also know as the double initials murder.
Occured in Rochester New York.
The name"double initial" murder ,comes from the fact that the victims had the same initial at the beggining of their first and last names. Eg MM,WW.
Also the area the victims were found in began with the same letter. eg MM Macedon.
No one has ever been caught.
The film verson will be out soon,kinda like the Zodiac film.
Never heard of the film. But will see what else I can dig up on the Double Initial Murders..
There seems to be a film in production,due to be finnished for 2008.
I had`nt heard of it either,but thats what i was told.
I think that where ever you have a serial killer living,the odd body will pop up.
And places that they have lived will usually have at least a couple of unsolved Homocides.
It seems to be the norn these days,that after the person is caught and their past is traced,nearly every time,more unsolved murders come to light.
In Scotland this is now so common that even the media can look into a suspects past and find information to other unsolved murders that have occured while the suspect was living in another area.EG,Peter Tobin,a monster of a man.
He is currently be re investigated after being convicted in the murder of a Polish woman in Glasgow.
After his conviction Police then exammined the disapearence of Vicky Hammilton.
Police found her buried in the back garden!
I remember the day Vicky went missing.
I was at Falkirk Bus Station because my motor bike broke down.
Falkirk was Vickeys home town. I later lived in Falkirk myself.
It was a cold febuary afternoon.
The news reports later in the week confirmed that she had simply vanished.
It became a huge story and there were no clues as to what had happened.
Vicky had been going to visit her sister in Bathgate,and had missed her bus(yep,you know whats comming)
Vicky went to buy some chips to eat,she was cold and hungry.
She never got on the bus,and nothing was heard from her for years.
It was only when the Police re opened the case,with Tobin in the spotlight,that they discovered that he was living close to the area of the bus stop.
The police then found a witness that remembered a young girl talking to a old man,and the rest fell into place.
Tobin has been charged with the abduction and murder of Vicky Hammilton,age 15.
We were all just glad,more relived to be honest,that we got Vicky back,and could offer her a proper Christian Funeral and remember her .
So it is very importaint that Police forces keep looking for victims,even after a conviction is gained,because it is emerging that those men have and do kill over many many years.
