    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 '.
