    I feel like if a woman did it the nature of the sexual assault would have been different, at least regarding a cisgender woman.
    Like I get they'll get into vile territory on here but keep it from getting too explicit, there's probably easy ways to identify if a penis entered a woman or an object. Semen residue maybe?
    I don't know, this case is disgusting, more so than most of them.

    By the way, about barbiturates: theyre used bc they cause amnesia and the interrogator can convince that the suspect confessed, even bring back a signed confession with a fake autograph, which leads to the suspect cracking.

    The theory about the woman being the killer doesn't make sense... Wasn't one of the murdered women raped??..

    7:18 Are they forgetting that some of the victims were raped? If they had semen in them then it was probably a man.

    Is it just me or does Shane always look like he’s glitching at the beginning of the post-mortem? #IlluminatiConfirmed

    I just started watching this channel. I love it, it's great. But I can't help but think it's the Buzzfeed child of Shane Dawson and Good Mythical Morning.

    “So you’re a serial killer?”
    *sweats nervously*

  • Sabrina Schell

    On rewatch of the main video and the Q+A, I don't think it's possible that Peggy Swinney was the killer. She sounds very sketchy, but one witness said that the person who attacked him was a man, and a later victim was raped and murdered. Just seems unlikely that it was actually a woman, or that she did one murder in the exact same fashion as the active serial killer.

    My oldest son he's 29 now used to get so mad at me and his dad bc every time we watched Home Alone 2 we would always tell him *That would kill you, don't ever do that" when the brick drop scene came. It was hilarious.. You had to be there.

    I think it’s so weird and ironic that Ryan, who believes in and loves crazy ghost and demon theories, is so vehemently against kooky absurdist comedy like the Hotdaga and free range grass. Like you’d think bonkers fiction would be right up his alley, as a believer...

    Shane shouldn't rely on a tv show for factual depictions of serial killers. The majority of serial killers do not want to be caught.

    As far as their booby traps go, Shane is practical and Ryan is childish.
