Randy Kraft: The Southern California Strangler
Significantly, although police in earlier years had been willing to divulge details of the murders — such as burned nipples, emasculation, etc. The following paragraph is an example of what Alger was up against: ''The investigators refuse to give many details of the murders that may link a single suspect to several — or all — of the killings. They talk of ''possibilities'' and ''possible leads'' and, when asked about links between the murders, a detective responded, ''That could be. I can't say one way or another.

But it's always a possibility. Alger's story was a lone voice in the wilderness. The Los Angeles Times ignored the killings, as did the television stations. On Jan. It seemed obvious that a major serial killer was at work in Orange County and the surrounding areas, whether or not the police cared to admit it.
Marv Olsen, the metro editor, assigned me to work on the story full-time. Since the police wouldn't say there was a serial killer at work, I enlisted the aid of Dr. Albert Rosenstein, a forensic psychologist.

On March 24, , the Register ran a story that covered the top third of the front page, titled, '''Freeway Killer' Cruises For Murder. Olsen had agreed that giving the killer a 'name' would make him less abstract to the public. It worked. The radio and television stations jumped on the story, and from that point on the killer was a reality to the public. The only major media outlet to shy away from the story was the Times. My story contained some of the same types of flaws Alger's story had contained.
Since the police were withholding details of the murders, Dr. Rosenstein had no way of knowing there were two killers working at the same time, but with different M. And Rosenstein, in an excess of confidence, had insisted on linking the killer to Patton State Hospital — believing the killer had been incarcerated there as a sex offender. When the Register ran its ''Freeway Killer'' story, Sidebotham expressed misgivings about the usefulness of a multi-agency task force, such as had been assembled to catch the Hillside Strangler.
Sidebotham argued that, since many of the Freeway Killer victims were unidentified, a multi-agency task force would serve no good purpose. In fact, 10 years after William Bonin was captured, Sidebotham still expressed this view page of book. Yet, as McDougal's book demonstrates, a closer relationship between the investigating agencies might have uncovered Kraft much sooner. He was arrested in in connection with one of the murders, but an assistant prosecutor refused to file charges. Also, a number of victims were known to frequent Ripples, a gay bar where Kraft was a well-known customer.
McDougal adopts the view of some in law enforcement that the Register was ''irresponsible'' in calling Bonin the Freeway Killer, when — they argue — that title belonged to Randy Kraft. That is untrue. The name ''Freeway Killer'' was coined to describe the serial killer who was in a killing frenzy in early , and that was William Bonin — who murdered 21 young men between August and his capture on June 11, In fact, 48 hours before the Register's Mar.

The victims were teenaged boys; both were strangled and one was homosexually molested, according to confidential police sources. The fact is, long before my story was printed, the police had compiled a inch wall chart, titled, ''The Southern California Strangler s '' — a designation apparently unknown to McDougal more than 10 years after the fact.
Updated versions were issued on May 1, and July 20, , also before Bonin began killing. Bonin did not torture or emasculate his victims, while Kraft is accused of that.

The most telling difference, however, was that Bonin would stop his vehicle and dump his victims out, while the Southern California Strangler shoved his victims out of a fast-moving vehicle, often leaving long trails of flesh on the highway.
