The adjusted and from that time on, he targeted couples stacked dishes on the men, while they were bound threatening to kill them if they made a sound while Nidesand was the woman into another room to riper. as the year went on and attacks grew more and more frequent. So too did the press coverage, but still There was a time when not everyone got the news. The moment had happened. While there are many people terrified of the a ripest that were it was still oblivious. There were many sightings of a suspicious male in an area leading up to an attack, trespass singing yards and checking out houses with suspicious people is also being seen But unfortunately, most of the saw were not reported until after the attack occurred and police conducted a canvas spot the east area rapist having a very specific ammo, was not released to the public. The police

Chief deputy friend race and investigate, is discussed at length whether or not to hold a press conference studying what they knew of the Exterior ripest Andy's behaviour. Up to this point, they believed he did. In fact, what the press, the he he's message. I felt it fit his style that day in emergency press conference, went ahead. It was clear that law enforcement when no longer able to keep quiet about the ripest room Flying all over the place and the public
it had to know what the facts were. Chief deputy Fred Race issued a psychological profile of the east area rapist made, a panel of psychologists and psychiatrists in the community, the profile, This. The east area rapist dies, quote a probable paranoid, schizophrenic who feel sexually inadequate probably raised in an upper middle class home by a domineering, mother and awake father. it's probably an only child but may have a younger sister. He They have to be of greater than average intelligence, or at least a hospital graduate. You may be interested in police work or military officers. Training at some point he's probably honey. Point now: the right A stiff threatened might be violent and possibly self destructive. If court he might try. Take a hostage or stage a shoot out with his captors, but if Fronted in a non threatening situation, the ripest is probably complacent and gives no indication he's a violent criminal.
In a sexual panic because of inadequate physical in and the understanding is that, since using adequately endowed, he can establish a normal relationship with a woman and whipping his way to compensate first composite sketch of the east area. Rapist was released, but it came. The warning, The following was written. Underneath the sketch that appeared in the Sacramento Bee quote the artist's conception of the east area, rapist, based on numerous bits of information from persons who caught a glimpse of him, was released today by the Sacramento County Sheriff's department, has gotten a full face, a view of the ripest offices.

National Guard. the budget had already been exhausted and countless deputies and highway patrol officers began. Volunteering, that's on deputy Fred Race, quite waivers if the great many coals and have numerous leads to check out, but so far The solution is not in sight Somebody out there must know who this man is underway find the rates that person we hope this is the answer. In four days, twenty deputies recorded three thousand tips that had been called him
estimated that fifteen percent of those tips worthwhile in an attack To quell rampant rumours that the ACE terror ripest was disfiguring women, the deputy chief confer. that he had never significantly physically injured anyone. This was beside the first on the public, heard that the exterior ripest spent long periods of time in the victim's homes as he committed repeated attacks. The city Sacramento flipped into a state of unprecedented panic. Surely the Assad couples? its leading chiefs, so someone in the house would be awake at all times. Paper, started, leaving loaded guns next to their beds. Sacramento Bay Secret, witness protection program donated fifteen thousand dollars, as a reward Dentist then up to that reward to twenty five thousand dollars. The EAST area, Rikers surveillance patrol, will the patrols patrol continued to circle the streets every night, the
This patrol, what community members who had taken it upon themselves to patrol the straights in cars would say they radios, the end of May. The sheriff's office publicly asked these patrol the stock and the sheriff Dick Philips quite, I'm not doubting, nay good interest, but they could be a hindrance instead of an assistance, drawing up and down.

Some questions where Yea EAST area rapist was described as a and athletic The boss sell your rain Seko was described as being rounder with some fat on you. There was a chance he could have lost waiting time in between, but it didn't, explain he stuck your fingers, There were also descriptions of the rain sector having a different shape, denies Lauren Forcement was still divided as to whether or not the ransacker into the Aced area rapist, where the same person. What the community realized very quickly was that the EAST area rapist, probably looked totally normal, blending into their community just like everyone else. they knew no one was safe. Following this press conference, a sheriff's department memo was sent the office which
Klute it as much as they knew about the stereo ripest somehow, and these physical appearance at also confirm some facts and assumptions. They had the following: it's taken directly from that memo that was sent around in May nineteen. Seventy seven vehicle, Humor, suspicious vehicles being checked and eliminated still, Staining is a nineteen, fifty two or nineteen, fifty three Ford or Chevrolet Bright, yellow, step side. Pickup this vehicle was seen on noble, ditch each day for three days prior to the rape on Thornwood, which was attacked number for It is assumed that the suspect troubles boy automobile on five separate occasions.

This is what the memo said in Nineteen- seventy seven
We know now that the prince from a seven seemed to be the only ones, thought its value from the exterior area. Rapist. Police were still tracing out, blades and speaking to possible suspects, one of These possible suspects lived in orange, vile and drive in Austria truck around a Sacramento when shall we visited his house, the main didn't seem at all surprised the police, for there shall be so this was unusual.

The tactic
That occurred May 14th. Seventy seven was the one where the couple had only recently moved in when the house it was the sale, a suspicious man who said he was a real estate agent, rocked up without an appointment, he frightened the woman who is selling the house, as he didn't appear, to be checking out the things that real estate agents usually do. He was looking at the windows and he asked the questions about the woman's husband and chalk. The half so soon after- and He stereo ripest committed attack twenty in the house soon after that. The name that suspicious man who said he was a real estate agent gave, was framed. William Dobbins Jr,. Shelby had been looking into the night when you were so the call from a sergeant at Like Tahoe Police Department, the sergeant provided Shelby with a name of someone he should look into. Coincidentally, the name Frank, William, Dublin's junior way I covered several strange suspects and occurrences that looked promising. Only
for it to be nothing more than a bizarre coincidence. He was another. Dublin's was a security guard in the Tahoe area. It the cells packed in a number of brightens where women were sometimes a solid, but not right. As far as what was known at the time, Dobbins became a suspect when it was noticed that after age breaking, he would turn up just as police arrived at the scene. He would always be out of breath. saying he had been trying to chase the suspect down. Diamonds, owned a police monitor and a three fifty seven handgun. He was Nasty guided state on the exterior ripest watch waste for a period of time, but was never arrested too. more possible suspects in a long list of promising leads that amounted to nothing. Around this time. In mid one thousand. Seventy seven there were numerous sightings of someone wearing a scary mouse growing a but it's believed Person was the east area rapist
police knew he was likely to have the bark before some of the attack, located were perfect, first gaping via or on foot. He may have even chosen to use a buck more regularly at this point as a direct result of police, specifically looking for sole male drivers of vehicles police, I received many calls from the public about these bark rider wearing a ski and one night. Detective Shelby and sergeant Owen actually saw this man for themselves Who parked right in the middle of one of the hot spots in range? I could over a means, best completely in black wearing escape mosque sped through an intersection right in front of them.

It was common for they pulled a cold, the sheriff's office days weeks and even months later, when they realise the bark RADA wearing this game, ask may have been relevant to the case, but by that time it was too late. it seems like there are countless stories of people saying a prayer, Allah or suspicious mile. He didn't call it in Many were simply unaware of the connection, but there are those who reported lighter than they feed if they made the call they might be next and if they, closed their curtains? Didn't talk about it anymore, just go away only he didn't. ten days at tick boy, since the last attack attack twenty one which occurred on May, seventeenth, nineteen, twenty seven press conference is being held and rest
and subsequent, I hoped the stereo ripest banks get away with the mess you ve made your attention police home, that would be a man of all as they had on the ground. He would be captured Before anyone else fell victim, enters to join. I did to the reward and who was running what was by then refer to. As the citizens Vigilance Committee had he's dentist office in South Sacramento. This next to TAT, It have been a warning to him just a few blocks away from the dentist office. The stereo ripest had his eye on a house It was on fourth parkway, just half a mile from the Florin road exit of California State Route. Ninety nine! also known as highway. Ninety nine. It was further south than he had been before, but it fit perfectly. The location was the canal. At one end and of the clutch bro many to hallway nineteen on allowed for an Asia escape.
The new one is of the house had just moved in a few weeks earlier, and the real estate saw was still uproar in the front yard It was right behind Sacramentos Water treatment, where the husband worked as a supervisor. He was also on the rain reserve. Early in the evening of May twenty, seventh nineteen, seventy seven, the woman first home with a young son, she was doing laundry in the garage which was connected to the house when she the sword door into the garage open. She the wind must have blown so she shuddered and locked it She went to bed about one thousand, one hundred and thirty p dot m and was asleep by the tan that husband got high in from the treatment plan. At midnight. The sun was asleep in his room, the house. and had a beer and watch television before going to bed about two I am Shortly after going to bed, he heard the sliding glass door that led from their bedroom to the patio. He turned and saw a dark figure walking through the door
The flesh lot in the east area ripest left hand shown into his eyes. In his right hand, the ripest told us forty five automatic kingdom, the thought instantly it looked like what is known as a blue steel, military taught gun the woman Why do the following words by perfectly still or I'll kill all of you? I will kill you kill her and I will kill your little boy The USA ripest Puya shoelaces from his jacket and said The woman in his distinctive whisper through clenched teeth, toward the manner a slight change from his previous attacks. He, the words the man Indicating that he didn't have enough knowledge about the couple to know he was her husband, in previous attacks. He correctly called boyfriends husbands. Now he just said the man
While the woman was tying her husband's wrists, the exterior rapist kept telling her to make it taught when EAST area rapist, and forcing women to tour their husbands or boyfriends. There was no time and lessons just laugh most of the prior attacks on couples. The Right stand up rate tying. The husband himself. He then told the woman's breasts and made sure that will both face down on the bed. He was wearing black, gloves, doc parents and adopt Bobby. Jacket, similar to a navy stall em. Sixty four of army jacket. He said mask, was red and made it with small holes for his eyes and mouth when he spoke. In that harsh whisper, his voice got more high pitched when it seemed like he was getting excited here. I began breathing in and out loudly and started some words It was something he had done before he say,
the stutter on many words that contained the letter, L after telling them he was just there for food and money. He ran at the closet. At one point, the husband lifted his face to try and get a look at the east area rapist. He swiftly got a flashlight in his eyes. If you don't keep your face down, I'll kill her and your son, the EAST area, rapist, pulled shoelaces from shoes in their closet and walked back over to the bed. He put the gun to the man's head and told him to lie still. He used the shoelaces to re, taught his wrists again. He then taught he's in the woman's ankles. They heard him rummaging in the bathroom then go out to the kitchen when he returned. He put dishes on the means back and said, as opera
West, I'm only going to get food and money and then go to morphine. I dated before he that sound I'll come back and I'll kill everyone in the house. The serial rapist, untaught the woman's fate and pushed her out into a living area. He got lotion from the bathroom then shut the bedroom door in the living room. The woman noticed he had already cut or ripped pieces of tail and left them on the floor. He blindfolded her. Then he raped her before going back to check on her husband after rummaging around in the kitchen. Again he returned to the survivor and said I'll have something for you to tell the fucking pigs. They got it mixed up. The last time I said, I would kill two people, I'm not going to kill you if this is on tv or in the paper tomorrow. I'll kill. Two people are you listening D hear me I'll have to ac my apartment and I'll be watching them. If this is on the news, I'll kill two people, then he did something he hadn't done before he started sobbing, whether or not it was an act is unknown, but while he was sobbing, he said it scares my mummy when it's on the news. It scares Mon Mummy when it's on the news he again started on the literal when he said the wood pigs. He was mad, but when he said the word mummy, he sounded like he was about to cry. He then walked to the back. Sliding door walked out into the yard and was gone after enough silence. The husband, flicked, the dishes off his back and rolled over towards the phone at the bedside he flipped, the phone from it's hold and called police patrol officers arrived followed shortly after by Shelby they found a one bottle and an open packet of sausages. On the back patio, the survivor and her husband was still banned in sought. This son had slept through the whole thing shall be called the tracking dog who tracked to the a stereo ripest across a small vacant, lot to a fence bordering highway. Ninety nine. They put the dog over the fence and it continued to track for a short distance. But then the trial ended at a set of tire tracks from a small cop, a neighborhood canvass revealed that a few neighbors had been receiving hang up phone calls, but there wasn't the spate of suspicious activity and sightings they had been leading up to previous attacks. This was also one of the attacks where the east area rapist did not cut the fine line when detectives took a step back and compared the attacks where the fine line was cut to the ones where it wasn't thy realized that he only ever seemed intent on cutting the fines when he had a fair distance to get to his getaway vehicle. If he caught the fine, it allowed him more time before police arrived. If he was parked close by or escaped on foot or bark through a nearby canal, he felt no need to cut the fine.
that same day. Police were called to a gas station in South Sacramento. That was, the exit on Interstate forty five so now, as I find, which It's parallel to highway. Ninety nine in a man's restrooms thought. What read this is a fact part of town next month us thought he a stereo ripest, There was no way to confirm whether this was in fact the scribbling of the story, a rapist, it was a way of knowing exactly when it was written, but it's the the main reason. the Sacramento obey wasted no time in reporting on the latest attack the article speculated that the new location, further south. In previous attacks was selected, to escape the heat of previous locations. police and in numerous volunteers, from these patrols was still out and about every nor the show. The parliament stated they had a further one hundred thousand dollars allocated for offices to work over time.
I also said I wanted to try and use helicopters as part of their patrols. detective she'll be lived in the north western section of ranch. I could ever the time very as to a? U shaped, abandon the American River hills. with his wife and children, his house, backed onto large park which bordered the local elementary school and On the other side of the park, there was a middle school. Shelby Alphin often work knots, and he made a point of dropping by his own house. Regularly saying is he knew they lived in a perfect taste area, rapist, hunting, ground. On noise he was working.

The next She'll be learned that his son, and by working up by a person wearing a mosque hanging up. but down from their roof. Looking into he's window, the main flesh,
the torch all around the room, then disappeared. There was no sign of footprints or any entry attempt that Shelby could find labour, certain neighborhoods, with sped of attacks by the EAST area rapist because of the different styles of homes built he's home and those in his immediate area had the tops of windows. You roll out would certainly a small way sliding windows which open enough to call on through after the last attack attack twenty two that occurred on May twenty Eightth, seventy seven more co. Started becoming regularly about break ins or suspicious men, people believed could have been the stereo ripest in June, A resident of say to her why, in the northern part of chemical reported that had been looking for paper work with these work schedule on it, while he was searching, he discoveries hang on which he always kept. A loaded in these noise stand had been unloaded and moved. There
In a report of a mile with thick black curly hair, seen acting suspiciously on the path directly behind this residents house. The resident never located his work schedule later. two days later, she'll be received a call from a woman who had been broken into while she was at first rate butter We would say to Hearst why, where the resident with a missing paperwork lived, his house was Just moments up the road, this woman, and her daughter had come home to find that things in Saudi House had been disturbed. Nothing. was taken, but she was sure things had been moved around. When shall be arrived to take a look. He found a footprint with his exact patent underneath one of her windows shall we you're, not some houses on her straight and found a similar story up the road A woman and her daughter told show me that on quite a few occasions, they had returned home to form their front door, unlocked and sometimes left slightly ajar.
she never found anything missing, so she had never reported it to police but she was adamant that things were often moved inside her house. She had also been receiving a lot of hang out phone calls. When she told Shelby that she kept a spare k underneath her doormat He realized she had no idea about the stereo ripest. Backyard of the house opposite. Hers especially found the tennis shoe footprints with the zig patent and a number of the same stall cigarette box Shelby at had seen before. That would get at the base of a huge tree. The clear line of thought to the woman's house. The neighbors said that awake Allah has seen a young blonde man approach that backyard. She'll be informed the woman about the dangers of leaving her k under the door mat while also warning about the stereo ripest. At some known, whether the ripest new law enforcement when they are closely watching this area or that shall we had spoken to what looked like the Bay one of these future targets, but he never appear.
Hit the surface again in that particular neighborhood back to the entire month of June, went on and no attack by the Exterior ripest was report. soon. The time between attacks grew longer than any break he had before. It was at this time. and that the reward grew to thirty thousand dollars. In July, seventy seven Shelby was going on vacation on the stay. He was scheduled off, it was notified. He was being re assigned to patrol Watch commander. It was the sought after administrative posts, but shall we felt it was to get him out of the way of Captain stand as the two budded heads on how the ace Terrier ripest investigation was being run, this re silent men shall be would no longer be actively investigating the case when July came and went without an attack and August begin some had hopes they had seen the end of the terror.
On August 16th, seventy seven, the Sacramento County Sheriff's office, received to talk to letter. This letter was never publicly released and only small parts of what it said can be taken from newspaper articles and comments by law enforcement. At the time The letter was signed off from someone calling themselves afraid it insinuated a bang written by a friend of the a stereo rapist. It included very specific information about particular crimes that police knew to be correct, which had never been made public. Which is why they didn't realize the full details of the letter. By holding this information back. There would be able to corroborate certain details if a suspect arose, The letter appeared to be written by someone with knowledge of who the exterior ripest works, or it may have been written by the ripest himself. A what The details within with short police, it was legitimate and a message was sent back to the letter. W avoid the press. The next day
Sacramento death of Elvis Presley the who was taught clue to ripest at last, press bison for the county. Sheriff's department Bill Miller said that the letter instructed detectives to indicate to the local media. If they wanted more information. So that's exactly what they were doing. Miller quote We want to speak to afraid we've been given information, possibly valuable information in a well written talk letter. It not. from a cook There is a statement in the letter or something that the letter writer is aware of that he's very Very interesting. Miller confirmed that the information could only be known by someone familiar with details of the case that are not generally known to the public. The suspect The letter rod. I knew this suspect
Miller, confirmed the letter. Rada would be guaranteed and immunity if they called him. Nothing further has ever been released from police about this letter, but some speculate. It was the east area rapist who wrote it. After all, Why would the letter ought to ask for such a public announcement? they really were afraid. But the beginning of September, seventy seven there had still been no further attacks That has now been over three months. take a sum of education was transfer. It is part of his job, if he was in the military, was he posted elsewhere. Police could when we speculate. One important thing to note is that there had been unprecedented hate on the ground in Sacramento over that summer, the the patrols and civilian groups were becoming more vocal in the press. They were place every way and there was still talk of police trying to get a helicopter to use in that patrols.
But towards the end of those three months. Without an attack things, set the one faq. the civilian groups got less vocal and dwindled police patrol I down and they are no longer full term. Stakeouts people started to wonder if it was. Finally all over. One hour south of Sacramento in the city of Stockton was enough. the class neighborhood, Lincoln Village West. If you looked at it without knowing where it was but would fit right into a Sacramento. Just off the five was pointed circle, a circle. A straight laying off a large park. It had a levy right by which, right under the eye. Five and To amaze of other escape routes. This neighborhood in Stockton had been having trouble with crale for a few weeks There was an unusual amount of dogs, barking people, being on the offences in the north and the level footprints in yards that left home confused.

There were quite a few new residence in the street the two houses had for sale signs in their front yards A couple who owned a local store were asleep when the sliding door that led to the bedroom from the patio opened. The EAST area rapist had a bag within the couple. Clearly recognized that does adopt this back when, drop. The bag to the floor is sanded locked there were cans inside from that moment. On events unfolded like previous a stereo ripest attacks, the whisper, the flashlight, the threats that kill everyone, the same ritual of tying and re time, using shoelaces from the house again in putting lights on the husband's back. This time he told them. He had seen the woman in the store they owned and had to have her. He also said he only lived a few blocks away and he needed things for his apartment.

During the attacks of both twenty and twenty one had been seven attacks since then,. five resulting in right and to file gripe attempts with no attempt made to kill anyone.

The report goes on to analyze the odds of what times and places the east area rapist, which struck based on averages that concluded the following? The east area rapist is most likely to stalk on a Friday or Saturday, between the hours of two hundred and forty, a dot m and four hundred and thirty. I am Geographical distribution of east area, rapist attacks show some puzzling factors, but other which might be of technical value. it's Rancho Cordova was the scene of his first attack at maybe, The prototype of his subsequent attacks,

This may represent the beginning of new clusters of attacks the The timespan between attacks in these major groupings is about two months. however, there is little interval regularity within groups about the it can be said, is that the first incident in a new area is generally followed by another in two months or less. The report also mentioned that the exterior ripest seem to have an extensive wardrobe of informal clothing and award assortment of knives, hand, guns and flesh lot, but it's on. If he owned all of these items or if you just acquire them. The report then moved on to an analysis of the exterior ripest tomorrow.

This above his parents are right time. Just fifteen minutes after the east area, rapist had left. in the weeks leading up to this attack, someone had broken into the family's garage and stolen tools, Somebody's had also been receiving prank calls from a strange man asking for their mother. The eldest survivor was missing two earrings from her jewelry box. The earrings were made from two dorms with holes drilled in them there were also, Two photographs of the youngest of all the missing. about nine, fifteen and fifteen. On February second, nineteen. Seventy eight, a young married couple and out walking the young married couple there was a routine walk for them and their dog who was named thumper. They had moved, Area just six months earlier.

Heidi, had told friends about prank call she received while living in Fresno. She also said she felt like she was being stalked during in. The male call told her that he had right to women and she would be next the fallen when is the account of what happened during their walk on various witness statements, as described by detective rigid, shall be in his book hunting a psychopath. the main witness a ten year old boy watched from a second story window, as the incident unfolded in his backyard Brian Katy, where apparently out for an evening strong when they small what doth ran off, chasing after by into a backyard where it is possible that surprised the pre law,
in the trailer armed with a handgun gave chase to Brian and Katie. This is where the ten year old witness comes in. A strong wind had previously knocked down a section of fence in his backyard, as the young witness watched he saw Brian and Katie run through that damaged section of fence into his backyard. Immediately behind them was a gun wielding man. Bryan made it as far as the patio before being shot to death by the man with a gun having just taken one life. The main turned his attention to Katie, who was running for her life as she ran. He fired a shot off the shot, each one missing her, but striking the house he caught up with her at the gate, his view, blocked by a bush. The young witness heard a single gunshot then saw a smaller man of rising smoke. Apparently Katie's body may have been blocking the gate, leaving the killer, no other option, but to climb over which he did as the killer cleared the fence a curious next door. Neighbor was stepping out of his garage. The two came face to face: probably the only reason the sweetness was not shot was because the kilo was out of ammunition having just expanded at all. On Katie the killer first ran down. One block then switched to another direction. He changed directions, two or three times a few blocks from the motor saying. A woman was doing yard work when she saw a man walking rapidly in her direction. He was staying close to shrubbery near the front of her neighbors says he crossed the yards. When a car approached, he jumped behind a tree pressing himself as flat as he could against it. There he remained until the car had passed. Then continued on his way,
shooting his face with his jacket color, he remarked to the woman as he crossed her yard. Guess I must be trespassing. He was wearing a world war, two era bomber jacket, with the three hundred and twenty eight on group.

although there is no information as the what came of the investigation into this car when the peace what run through the system years later, it was found that the car was compacted and sent to the smelter in nineteen. Ninety fourth. This incident was immediately handled by the homicide division who released nothing to anyone inside the task force. After all, this was a humus soil, not a right. Committed by the EAST area, rapist, All the public knew was that a young couple were gunned down, as they walked the dog shoelaces already formed and nodded into a loose loop had been found at the crime scene. Thumper was and caring in neighbor's yard. When Because it's catches were released in the press following the murder at stake. The police were looking for two suspects. This is because the two sketches made up from different witnesses looks different. That was similar but the age was different, leading to confusion and the thought there were two suspects. What they say,
It was the flicked away from the fact that everything about this killer resembled the exterior rightist there was no indication whatsoever as to the reason why the murders occurred, but the logical thought is that the couple running after their dog into the boy's backyard interrupted someone about to break into the house. His parents were asleep, but the boy was standing at the window because he heard noises prior to the shooting. It's plausible, that the killer was unexpectedly seen by Brian and Katie right at the moment he was about to break in leading to the killer, shooting them because they had seen his face. When the neighbour coming from his garage. So the kill a flame. He didn't have a mosque on possible He hadn't yet put his mask on when Brian and Katie approached the yard.
