TIL that serial killer Richard Cottingham worked in the same office as another serial killer, Rodney Alcala, in 1969, though the two denied being aware of each other.

  1. Of course it was fucking health insurance. Where else would a sadist want to work?

    In October 1966 he went to work as a computer operator at Blue Cross Blue Shield Association in New York until his arrest in 1980.[5] At Blue Cross, Cottingham worked in the same office with fugitive serial killer Rodney Alcala, the “Dating Game Killer”, who was in New York in 1969 under the alias “John Berger”, but neither of them claimed to have been aware of each other nor is there any evidence they were familiar with one another prior to either’s arrest.[4]

  2. So. Nothing to do with this, but… When do we get to a point where being a long term serial killer in the US is pretty much impossible? Are we there yet? I’m just thinking, technology, DNA, etc. Yeah, there are still plenty of unsolved murders, plenty of missing people, but, at some point tech is going to be such that getting away with multiple murders over a long period of time is going to be a thing of the past, right?
