I watched A&E 24/7, and yes, there was the one serial killer that started off collecting womans shoes. Then he got into more grotesque, foot fetishes,
and lastly hacking off the foot to medel the usually high heeled ladies shoes he loved so much.
There was also this other kid, he was young too, only about 20, he kidnapped,one neighborhood kid, he was fixated on breaking thier ankles and legs,
then wrapping them up to heal, while keeping the kid hostage, for them to heal, only to break them again and again.
The first body was found in the water with broken legs, the case went cold until the second kid managed to get away, and they checked the Xray's of
his break, to the kid who drowned in the lakes, and they were an identical match. This kid was sick. This poor kid though, I still remember his name,
cause I seen the show 3 or 4 times, I seen the foot one a few times as well, (like I said I watch Cold case files, and american Justice religiously),
it amazes me the sick things people can do to others. I'm glad we have the death penalty sometimes in this country.
But yea, i would like to know if all the feet found were male or female. I'd imagine He could just be a serial killer and this is the best way he's
found of capturing people. But doing this on a running trail, you have the chance of a couple joggers running up on you, while your in the act of
trying to coral basically dead weight, someone who just had thier foot taken off by a trap, is likely gonna pass out in a minute or two, and most
likely die without a tourniquet(sp?) within 10. So I don't think he's booby trapping a running trail, way to risky, what if 3 joggers come running
up on your set up all at the same time? Unless he cpull it away, and reset it it really fast, i don't see it as plausible.
I would think the police should be looking at unsolved murders or bodies found where the people were missing feet, or hands even. A long shot though.
Because i do believe this psycho does have a foot fetish.
He's most likely kidnapping local hookers in his truck like the Green River Killer, Gary Ridgeway, and maybe torturing them, maybe not, but I would
say he's Dumping, or burying the bodies, (he's doing something very well to conceal 5 bodies) for long enough for him to play with the each foot
before disposing of it in the water.
They must be witholding the gender of these feet for some reason, I would guess they be all female, but then again, there have been cases, Like whats
his name..., bah can't rmember it but he was the "mastermind, him and Charles iNg (old military buddies) we trying to make slaves(videotaping
themselves even). But these two guys were takeing entire families and couples, only to kill the men then torture, and enslave the women. But very rare
you find a serial killer team.
The zodiac and son of sam are the only two off the top of my head that killed men and woman alike, but those were couples as well; and they were
Of course Dahlmer killed just men as he was gay.
I don't know I'd be extremely suprised if the feet were of mixed genders.
Of course it could be some crazy guy forcing people into some sort of sick game, ie "SAW", or like the scenarion the second poster posted. Then
gender really doesn't matter?
Wierd case, starred and flagged though, i never heard about this.
EDIT* Interesting post and theory Tuebor, i missed it somehow
Yea they do say they were all found with running shoes. I mean 80% of middle class
people were sneakers, so it doesn't actually mean like "running shoes", that a marathon runner would wear, i don't think. Also hardly anything to
model a foot in if you had a fetish, I could see them all being in high heels or something. Thats a very likely scenario.
