“After watching this film I did a little research of my own, if the info I got while viewing the web page on wikipedia is correct, then the self confessed Boston Strangler Albert DeSalvo was clearly full of sh**t, although DeSalvo himself was a piece of sh**t, but he was not the strangler, my reasons for saying this, is because my research revealed that some of the women DeSalvo said he raped showed no signs of sexual activity, and although DeSalvo supposedly revealed details of the murders that were not made public, none of his descriptions of the crimes were ever confirmed, yet their speculating on whether DeSalvo really was the strangler.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSo I ask, what is so hard to grasp about the fact that DeSalvo took advantage of the Boston murders just so that he could get rich and famous or u0026quot;infamousu0026quot;? I for one wouldu0026#39;ve supported the Sullivan family in saying that DeSalvo was not Mary Sullivanu0026#39;s killer.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAs for this film, its nothing more than a worn out subject, and the films that depict real life serial killers have never really been anything to write home about, and this one is just following the trend.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ePlus, people usually tell me to think a bit outside the box, if I had to give a profile, Iu0026#39;d say the strangler was pretty good at working his way into the lives of his victims, he was probably some secret love interest that the victims family and friends didnu0026#39;t know about, and probably preyed on a certain weakness, and he couldu0026#39;ve been a potential stalker watching his victims for days, one more thing, he might have more than a mother fixation, based on the fact that he also murdered elderly women, might want to look at someone else in the family or someone close to the family, and DeSalvo didnu0026#39;t go for elderly women.”
