Some dumbass wrote this at VTD website:
"Regarding the article, "Hunt still on for Visalia Ransacker,'70s serial killer" [Feb. 11], I'm curious as to why the Times-Delta would dredge up this story again. While I can understand that a story might be warranted if there was new evidence on this case, the fact of the matter is that there is none.
Being both the son and grandson of the victims of this crime,[why the singular "this"? Like he only committed one crime?! WTF?! Get over yourself, dipshit! Comment by Who.]
Very few people can relate to what my mother has gone through and the process of grief, recovery and acceptance that she endured as a result of this. She wants nothing more than to go about her life while cherishing the memory of her father, who died protecting her. It is not fair that she was blindsided by an article depicting her attacker in a newspaper that she subscribes to.
"... this paper has instead reopened the wound of this tragedy and the nightmares that coincide with it.
From, X."
> Editor's note: The intention of running an update on this story was to encourage anyone with information to come forward in hopes of solving the crime.

The reason they ran the story is because they need the public's help in catching the guy. though it may be to painful for some revisit the past other victims want to see the animal caught. the east area rapist started his crime spree ransacking homes in the early 70s.I would bet he was probably between 15-18 years OLD,He may have been the nice paperboy that nobody would ever suspect.He knew when everybody was home and when they were gone.This is was a time when he probably made his most mistakes.Maybe somebody, a neighbor remembers catching him peeking in thier windows and never reported it, or it was brushed off as a mistake.Somebody from those neighborhoods he was targeting had to know something and probably knew him.He was a kid nobody would suspect,he may have been a loner in those days but was very intelligent and manipulative. this guy needs to be unmasked and pay for what he did.

Who, I'm with you.EAR was a predator, a guy who preyed on innocent people,people that were sleeping only to be awoken with a knife at their throat or a gun pointed at them.People even today dont think this could happen to them,we are all a little naive.Why did he stop?Or did he change his MO and move to another state or country?Its unbelievable he was able to prowl around peoples homes and case them out all day, without anybody calling the police.Somebody needs to step up and finally tell the police what they know or suspect.

I am not sure why people have to complain about this guy the Ransacker. He has every right to go into any house he chooses. It is wrong to start a hate campaign against him. Its not like he molested or beat any children.

Eyewitnesses and victims mean nothing right Who? So why all the hate. Ransackers need love also.

I knew it wouldnt take long for a topix troll to stop by and leave a stupid comment.The EAST AREA RAPIST started as the visalia ransacker,and is the most prolific serial killer/rapist in California history and has never been caught.

I guess the complaint post was written by the son of Professor Snelling's daughter. He's the only man who died at the VR's hands in this series. Finding out who the VR/EAR/ONS is, might be a just matter of going through Visalia yearbooks from 1965 - 1974 and checking the senior pictures to compare to the composite sketches. Has anyone done that? I doubt it.

Excellent point, Meta. I blame his freedom on the fact that San Jose PD got into a pissing match with VPD over the case, to the benefit of the scum and to the detriment of the public at large, especially this bastard's victims.

Thanks you, it's important to understand that there are monsters in this world and the victims should stick together instead of attacking each other.

I was not aware that you has that ability. Understanding and compassion has never been a trait you have ever exhibited to the victims, you usually save that for child molesters.
