Just throwing this out there....if someone I didn't know called me to see if my daughter could baby sit for them and when asked who they are, simply gave a creepy laugh, I wouldn't tell my daughter it's ok to do the job but only if this guys wife picks her up.

This episode skims over a lot of details. One of the reasons the police had such a hard time narrowing down a lead (and probably the same reason reason the town didn't persue the rumors of who the killer was) is that the victim was kind of the town bicycle. It didn't matter if someone was underage, married, or anything, anyone without a Y chromosome was fair game. Probably half the men in the small town had a reason to want him dead, and many who heard the rumors probably figured he had it coming.
