  • Walked around apartment nude, even in front of company.

    6. 6. Mental health staff argued whether he was schizophrenic or whether he suffered from drug-induced psychosis. After two institutions, in 1976, he was released, deemed no longer a danger to society. His first confirmed victim was a drive-by shooting of a man in December, 1977.
    7. 7. He attacked others, but did not kill again until stalking a three-month pregnant woman. He shot her three times, had sex with the corpse, mutilated the body, and bathed in her blood. !

Will be a loner who does not associate with either males or females, and will probably spend a great deal of time in his own home, where he lives alone. Unemployed.
