A man who says he killed 90 women is drawing them. The FBI is releasing the drawings to help solve the cases.

Wow! I hope this is helpful to people. Since the ladies were marginalized people...there might not be many people who've even missed them. And that's a sad thought.

I'm so sick and tired of these freaking serial killers.And to think...he's just 1 of probably hundreds of other killers out there who haven't been caught yet and probably never will be.All those poor women.Hopefully this will solve some of the missing cases out there and bring some closure to some families.

I hardly know what to make of this. These pictures are art. How much do they actually resemble women he killed? How could someone who killed so many, remember them enough to paint them? They aren't great renderings of what a woman looked like - they're like Renaissance art. It would be hard to ID a loved one looking at these paintings.

From the article:

"The strategy has worked before, Buchwald said. Women who appeared in two previously released portraits were identified, he said."

What's the harm? If even one is identified, IMO, it was worth it.

I once read that at any given time, it is estimated that there are about one hundred serial killers in operation in the United States.

Many go unnoticed because their victims are on the fringes of society--drug addicts, the homeless, prostitutes. No one connects the murders to other murders, and the killers are often smart enough to vary the jurisdictions in which they commit their murders. So Jane the prostitute's body is found, somebody figures she was killed in a drug deal or by her pimp, it's quickly forgotten, and three counties over Mary's body is found and her death is treated the same way.

I was thinking the same thing, I cannot believe they published his drawings! They could be just made up, or not even close to accurate.
