How is it that his DNA has not yet been matched to him or anybody in his family? As databases grow, so will the likelihood that this worm is identified. Back in the 70's the reward for his capture was at least $30,000 and today it is only $50,000. Seriously? Put up at least $250,000 for this bastard and somebody just might come forward.
There is a ton of very valuable information in this book that a newly minted law enforcement officer would do well to take-in, digest and learn from. It's also a truly interesting and informative account of one of the most complex criminal investigations in California history.
