    Have you ever crossed paths with a serial killer and not known it until afterwards when they were caught and you recognized them on TV? I have never had this happen but it certainly does happen to some.

    Yup. I was invited to sit down with one of my many 2nd cousins, Judy, at a Denny's in downtown Salt Lake City. She had just met Ted Bundy after he flirted with her and invited himself to sit at her table.

    We both agreed that he was hot in that straight mormon return missionary sort of way of the era (early 1970's) and remembered his charming smile and easy-going nature. He offered Judy a ride back to her work in a dented VW Bug. But her office was less than a block away and she coquettishly declined and I walked her back to work. Later that evening his photo was plastered all over the local evening news.

    The odd chance that I just happened to be in Salt Lake City that day (a place I normally go out of my way to avoid at all cost) may have possibly saved her life. We'll never know.

    My second cousin was a murderer (in a rather famous case). I never saw THAT coming. Other than that, the only famous/recognizable case, where the closest I've come to that, was when I used to live in Brentwood, and crossed paths a few times with a certain accused/alleged murderer. :eek:

    In the late 70s and early 80s, there were a series of unsolved murders of gay men in Boston, most of whom could be traced back to a bar on Beacon Hill, Sporter's, which was my favorite at the time.

    My best friend was found stabbed and mutilated in his apartment in 1982, which caused me to step way back from the whole scene as it finally hit home to me. I'm sure he was killed by someone from Sporter's, and I'm certain it was someone whom I'd at least spoken with a couple of times, because I knew everybody there.

    FWIW, there was no mention of these murders in the papers (let alone the news): it was like we didn't exist as people. All news was passed word-of-mouth, which is why I discounted the rumors for so long. Anyone who has only experienced the gentrified Boston of the last 20 years cannot possibly imagine what it used to be like.

    I found out about 10 days after the fact that I was in the same bar on the Upper East Side of NY with Andrew Cunanan before he went to Florida.

    No. But I have met a man who later on killed another man. Close enough?

    Isn't it odd that SK's are mostly white men? I wonder what it is that doesn't make other types of people develope this trait. No wonder there are profilers. Quite an interesting topic despite it's target.
