Now, here’s a serial killer I’ve never heard of, and one who’s identity remains a mystery to the public, but not to the police.
Between January 1974 and September 1975, there were 14 murders and three assaults that occurred in San Francisco’s gay community. In the attacks, the killer met other men at after-hours gay clubs and restaurants in San Fransisco. He usually sketched the men before having sex with them and then stabbed them, thus the name “The Doodler” (also known as “The Black Doodler”). Police believe the man committed the murders after feeling shame over his homosexual experiences.
