  1. It definitely sounds like coincidence, but for some reason, it creeps me the fuck out. This should be a horror movie, if it isn’t already.

  2. Knew a guy in my college dorm that drowned in the river after a party… an investigator questioned a bunch of people real hard then he published a lengthy paper on the smiley face killer…

    Made up a lot of things and stretched facts to fit his narrative. One of which being he painted the guy I knew as a popular athletic young man. very much the opposite of how it was.

  3. There was a great documentary series on Oxygen that explored this theory. Some of the cases were suspicious but as for a ring of serial killers, I’m still not sure.

  4. I was having trouble picturing an organized group of killers, nationwide, who all hated privileged college students. But then I thought about all the hate groups that were so prevalent in the news over the last 5 years.
