              I feel like if a woman did it the nature of the sexual assault would have been different, at least regarding a cisgender woman.
              Like I get they'll get into vile territory on here but keep it from getting too explicit, there's probably easy ways to identify if a penis entered a woman or an object. Semen residue maybe?
              I don't know, this case is disgusting, more so than most of them.

                  “I’m serious, this is not a bit!” Activated my phone’s “Hey Siri” feature, interrupting the video.

                    By the way, about barbiturates: theyre used bc they cause amnesia and the interrogator can convince that the suspect confessed, even bring back a signed confession with a fake autograph, which leads to the suspect cracking.

                        The theory about the woman being the killer doesn't make sense... Wasn't one of the murdered women raped??..

                          7:18 Are they forgetting that some of the victims were raped? If they had semen in them then it was probably a man.

                                              Maybe they went to prison for other crimes and thats why things just stopped.

                                                                          On rewatch of the main video and the Q+A, I don't think it's possible that Peggy Swinney was the killer. She sounds very sketchy, but one witness said that the person who attacked him was a man, and a later victim was raped and murdered. Just seems unlikely that it was actually a woman, or that she did one murder in the exact same fashion as the active serial killer.

                                                                          • Rachel Burke

Like you’d think bonkers fiction would be right up his alley, as a believer...
