There's going to be a podcast about the "Doodler" serial killer in 2021

He was a serial killer who targeted gay men in 1970s San Francisco, who hasn't been caught

The case is still open

Will they release the name of the closeted celebrity who had an encounter with the Doodler?

by Anonymousreply 212/18/2020

R2, I think it depends on whether the guy was still alive

by Anonymousreply 312/18/2020

I wonder how the survivors lived with themselves after refusing to identify the killer.

by Anonymousreply 412/18/2020

There were other prominent men who were victims, I think one was a diplomat

Seriously do any eldergays here have any Doodler stories? I can imagine there are plenty of DLers who were in San Francisco in the 70s

So he was black? There used to be the blacks seeking whites/whites seeking blacks bar just off Castro. Forgot the name. He must have frequented this spot I would think.

R7, based on the sketch from witness descriptions, yes, he appears to be black (or maybe mixed)

[quote]One homicidal maniac got very little notice, and bigotry against LGBT people played no small part in that. He was dubbed, ‘the Doodler’.

Oh? What LESBIANS did he kill, San Francisco Chronicle?

"The Doodler"?

This sounds like the assholes who shit in the Home Depot toilet display. Not someone who stalks and kills gay men.

Who the fuck named this killer, anyway? Some cartoon geek?

by Anonymousreply 1112/18/2020

R11, he drew sketches of his victims

That's where "Doodler" comes from

by Anonymousreply 1212/18/2020

I thought he killed his victims by stuffing Cheese Doodles up their butts.

“The Doodler” sounds like a particularly lame villain from the Batman TV series

There's lots of Doodler podcasts. Do you think those rabid podcasters would miss this one?

Of course our very own gay serial killer has to be femmed up with a name like Doodler! Why not say Mr. Doodly-woodly-whipper-woodly? Mr. Dance-y Doodles? Yankee Doodle Chop Chop? While the straights get the Ripper, the Nightstalker, the Zodiac. We get this and Randy Kraft.

You forgot about the Killer Clown, R16.

by Anonymousreply 1712/18/2020

This should be a movie. Sadly he doesn’t get enough attention as the zodiac or GSK because the victims were gay

by Anonymousreply 1812/18/2020

r18, I think it would make a great movie or maybe a streaming series

by Anonymousreply 1912/18/2020

The Brits had one or two serial gay killers in London IIRC.

by Anonymousreply 2012/18/2020

r20, besides Dennis Nilsen who was the other?

by Anonymousreply 2112/19/2020

Is this Beyoncé’s Oscar?

First couple eps are up

The famous actor who had an encounter with the Doodler is supposedly still alive!

R11 are you fuck’n kidding me, shit in one of the display toilets? That is fuck’n ballsy and hilarious.

I believe it's actually a famous entertainer, not necessarily actor, who was stabbed and later provided a description.

An article at the time said he was a well-known San Franciscan performer (so maybe not nationally famous) but I can't find a copy of the article that's readable enough to see what else it said.

Eventually Millennials will start committing the crimes themselves when they run out of podcast fodder.

by Anonymousreply 28Last Thursday at 12:41 AM

I bet it’s Johnny Mathis!

by Anonymousreply 29Last Thursday at 1:22 AM

R27, the podcast said it was a nationally known actor.

There was another victim who was a local entertainer. He was a drag queen!

by Anonymousreply 30Last Thursday at 7:12 AM

R28, the Podcaster isn't a millennial. In the pictures I've seen he looks 50-ish. Eldergays here are weirdly obsessed with millennials
