    I want this to be an informative thread so if anyone has any thoughts that interest them I will do the research and follow up with any information I can find. I hope for it to get better with time (that 1st one is pretty boring actually I was tempted to download episodes of the actual "Genetic Detective" and then upload here, but I figured that could lead to serious copyright problems, not to mention a long term prison sentence.

    I apologize for posting a video from Oxygen, Oprah's TV station. I've been hating on her for 30 years.

    It dates back to my hard core misogyny days ... In her world all problems were spelled the same way ... M-E-N ... and she always had that cover she called 'Stedman'...not exactly a man's man in my opinion ... lol. not that there is anything wrong with that, of course.

    From here:

    Did you know that because of those DNA tests they've been able to catch serial killers like the Golden State Killer too?
    I was just watching a show about this when I was out west. I recognize CeCe. She was on the show I watched, talking about the use of these voluntary databases.

    Can't get to the real episodes but this link will allow you to watch it on abc ... I think the DNA tracing in these episodes is really interesting:

    GED Match is the national open database if anyone cares to donate their DNA ...

    I did a psychic smackdown on this guy, on a forum 'The Wichita Eagle-Beacon BTK discussion forum' ... I think I was trailed by the FBI in Houston Texas for a short while, it was weird. I think if someone is so focused on something, things will manifest around the energy. I think they were just checking me out, though there were people on the board that were suggesting that I should be a suspect. (Sounds pretty paranoid, huh). My claim to fame was a 'round' farmhouse dream which turned in to a long board discussion about 'Historical round barns' That whole thing went places that left me feeling like I was living in a surreal nightmare... After the case was solved, I went to Wichita to visit my brother but I was compelled to visit BTK's stomping grounds. As it turned out his animal control office was a converted 'Historical Round Barn' ... I also described his home, his yard, his main hobby, and not irrelevant his ethnicity as his first victims were a Puerto Rican family and he pretended to be Hispanic in one of his mocking calls to Law Enforcement.

    When he was first active, I used to walk through his part of town at night to and from a job that I working.

    He's on TV this weekend..."Very Scary People"

    I believe that souls like this who become sadistic serial killers are instruments of pure evil.

    My opinion... his facts on Rader were very accurate... His generalizations to other serial killers was a little too general and not spot on.

    Tha abuse factor could not be determined but Rader had a history of abuse towards his younger siblings...That doesn't normally develop in a vacuum which is why one forum dweller remarked that when his mother dropped him on his head it must have been from the 3rd floor.

    The progression of criminality is very common, as is using a fantasy demonic other to escape responsibility. Gaps between crimes is not that uncommon among the organized types which implies a degree of psychological control.

    Low eroticism ... I was going to suggest he was a really boring serial killer... , no hints of perversion or necrophilia (the most hideous of sk behaviors, but nevertheless common). He was just demented and angry about his sister's sick victimization.

    Check out this guy:

    I lived in Sacramento when the Golden State Killer was active. My mother was very scared.
