Hi Frankie, Wade,
In trying to catch up I came across this,
Just wanna you both to know that we humans murder among acquaintances,
is not because we love them, but because they are in our visible/ direct
Murdering a complete stranger is not a ' normal' behavior so to speak.
That is one reason why policeforces has troubles finding serial- murderers.
Making up profils is in fact making the surroundings of the killer visible
more direct. Limiting the surroundings wherein he/ she operates_ finding,
in a way ' his family '.
