Pincher Martin:

I wrote about this serial killer several years ago here at TPW.

Here was the first post I can find in the Crime and Punishment thread.

Some shocking details.

He's admitted to being the Visalia Ransacker.

He was a former cop in both Exeter (near Visalia) and Auburn (near the rapes he committed in the East area of Sacramento). He also served in the Navy during the Vietnam War era.

He was fired from the Auburn Police in 1979 (three years into his spree as the East Area Rapist) for shoplifting dog repellant and a hammer - tools which in retrospect he obviously needed to help break into homes.

Lori Dee asked me back then if I thought he was in law enforcement. I responded that I didn't think so.

Looks like I was wrong.

This was the guy that that comedian's wife was writing about, too. I remember you writing about him now, but didn't recall it when I saw the reports.

Yep. I just read her (posthumously-published) book last month. It was pretty good.
