I just found the forum. Iv'e always thought the Z was ALA
Now I can see how it could be someone else.
I was thinking about a few things.
If anyone who was a suspect was alive and went to court today on a partial 50 year old DNA match he would probably
get away with it.
Since they did not know about DNA testing the evidence was probably to contaminated.
Back to ALA and for a minute forget about the DNA said to exclude him.
What I was thinking about ALA is how he was a pedophile and animal torturer. This sounds sick and morbid. I'm sorry if this upsets anyone. That is not my intention.
If he was a killer would have he killed children that he molested? I would be curious to know if anything like that happened in the areas where he lived.
But they did not have the law back then that we have now. If so the police would probably know where a convicted sex offender lived in the area.
So I think it may be possible if he could have did that he could kill adults. Or not killed adults.
But if he never killed any of the children he preyed on then he might not have the guts to do the Z killings.
So just a thought.
His hand writing didn't match Z and his finger print didn't match the bloody fingerprint on Stine's cab.
That, along with the non-matching DNA clears him.
At that point all you have is circumstantial evidence but yet all the physical evidence doesn't match.
