I agree that it is a fascinating read. Ann Rule has quite an interesting life. Serial killers are rumored to visit both her neighborhood and book signings.

Interesting that he was on track to go to law school. I seemed to have remembered that, but it was a long time ago. Beware the wolf carrying a sheepskin...

But why on earth he did that? what was the cause? His girl friend who jilted him?
