No thread about The Staircase Killer being released?
There is a thread somewhere.
Staircase killer? Never heard of it but sounds interesting.
How many staircases did he kill?
He killed on a staircase and yhere was a gay hustler angle...
I heard about him for the first time yesterday. Supposedly, his wife knew that he was bisexual and she was completely fine with it. He also said that he was surprised that his children were unaware of his bisexuality. Interesting. I don't believe him, though.
Yes I think he was guilty. First wife also had a strange death...
What about that horrible killing in NY yesterday where the man dressed as an exterminator got on an elevator and set a woman on fire? I haven't seen a thread on that. Horrible, horrible story. That poor woman. It seemed like a hit, too, but the victim was a 64-year-old postal worker, coming home from grocery shopping. Who the hell puts out a hit on an old lady post office worker?
As weird as it sounds, I hope it turns out to be "hit" because I hate to think that random crime has become that horrific.
I'd never heard of this case until I came across a documentary on it on the Sundance Channel. Part 2 aired yesterday, so news that he was released is going to change my perception. So far, it has followed the incident with the wife dying (murdered?); a camera is following the suspected murderer as his lawyers build his case.
It's slow but interesting. It was just revealed in part 2 about this guys secret life, and that he made up aspects of his supposed true exploits during the Vietnam war. There was a bit of gore when the coroner was showing pictures of the dead wife covered in blood. Yikes.
Sundance is re-running the original series to promote the 2 new episodes that will air this fall. They will pick up where the story left off.
Thanks for the info, R10.
The first new episode ("Last Chance--Reopening the Case") airs tonight on Sundance Channel, 10 PM ET
Always loved it in the case when they mentioned the all important 'blow poke'. I had never heard of one before. Still makes me laugh. Blow poke. Hehehehe.
R7 they caught that guy.
I actually believe the owl theory. It's weird, but weirder shit has happened, no? I am interested to see this but have a feeling he will be convicted again.
Dear Stair Case killer,
You don't need to tolerate this negativity. Call my lawyer, Allison Hart. The law firm is Lavely and Singer. She will send threatening letters to the webmaster and this harrassement will be deleted immediately.No one needs to be so abused like this.
Take care, Tig Notaro
Where is the actual thread about this? I saw a documentary about this case on the Bio channel and found it interesting. I also remember thinking that there was no possible way the husband did NOT murder the wife... I'm a little confused that he's been released.
r17 When the new series started awhile ago I looked for a SK thread and I don't think there was one, just mentions of him in true crime things. I can believe the owl thing because of all the holes in her head. That's why he was released, to redo the case because there are unanswered questions. He's not free per se, just free on bail till the new trial.
