Washington County Strangler Revisited

by Annette Dashofy

I was all set to write about my weekend away from civilization when I spotted Joyce’s post yesterday. Since my weekend can be summed up in a few words (It rained. I edited.), I decided to dig up an old post of mine about the recently solved murder and several other similar ones that had a huge impact on me. It may be a re-run, but I figure it’s old enough that many of you may have missed it. Or forgotten. So while I keep working on my edits, I leave you with this.

When I posted that link, I'd forgotten that you wrote about this crime. The other murders supposedly aren't related, but I do wonder whether they're looking into them further after the latest arrest.

Annette, I think that would be an interesting survey, or article: How many people write crime because they were somehow touched by a particular crime?

Ramona, I've said before that I enjoy writing (and reading) crime fiction because we get to catch the bad guys and bring the case to a conclusion, which doesn't always happen in reality.

Joyce, it's been suspected that the cases weren't all related for quite some time. But the location and timing defintely make you think "serial killer" even if it isn't.
