Am I too paranoid?
Are you familiar with the Green River Killer in King County, WA? Supposedly, he murdered close to 20-25 women over a near-two decades span. Some Seattle grunge bands, IIRC, recorded a few songs about him. He was even suspected in the murder of respected Seattle grunge singer Mia Zapata in 1993, although her murderer later turned out was a homeless Cuban convict who immigrated to the United States on the Mariel boatlift.
