15. I had a professor absolutely fixated on this to the point she scared people
Edited on Wed Aug-31-11 10:50 AM by Sen. Walter Sobchak
She was convinced it was American Francis Tumblety and escaped suspicion because the police believed him to be a homosexual and therefore an unlikely slayer of female prostitutes.

She also insisted he killed at least ten women and not the five recognized victims and may have also killed in Latin America.
