Why would a man severely attack and practically kill a woman over her refusal for him to buy her a drink? I know there are a lot of crazies out there who probably would do that, but I don’t think that’s the case here.

I am more interested in the man who claimed he was a police officer. He knocked on her door the same day of the attack, but earlier in the day. Menlo PD denies having a cop there that day, so I think it makes more sense that THIS guy may have been the one. Did he match the description of the attacker? read more
