I don't think her attacker was GSK

I don't think it is him. Some other horrible subhuman, unfortunately.

Maybe they could get the old police report. Also Deangelo has one of the most distinctive high pitched voices I've ever heard. I believe if anyone who heard his real voice that would stand out to them

I suppose this is a guy thing but we would never forget the type of car or color.

Gerald Schutte As a female, I can say I might or might not. I'm not a gear head by any measure, but I think cars are pretty cool and have some favorites. If the car she was picked up in was a basic whatever kind of car and she's just thinking about her class, she just might not be observant of her surroundings. and in the 70s, hitchhiking was super common. My brother and sister did it all the time and no one said they should do otherwise. Trauma affects memory in unusual ways. One might hold one detail above a big picture with no rhyme or reason. Lastly, questioning is tricky because it's easy to lead false memories. But I do get the joke!

I think it's funny when a religious person survives trauma and thank God for it. If God was involved it was part of his plan to have you raped and ran over to survive, I think the only reason she did survive was because it rained the night before making the ground soft. which of course would have been gods doing

Pamela Escalante, wow...whether this was DeAngelo or not doesn't affect how brave and strong she was to speak up like that. We are lucky to get to hear an interview that is so raw, genuine and reflective of the true courage of survivors. I'm a victim of certain things, and I find the way that she got through it and told her story for the sake of justice to be truly inspiring. Paul and Billy did a masterful job of making her feel safe, heard and empowered.

Found this episode not as good as others and appeared to have some flaws in the argument

I'm not fully convinced of this...I find it very difficult to believe that he would go from that kind of attack,..back to just ransacking homes,..for a year or two, and then start breaking into homes to rape 50 women without a single attempted murder or successful murder, even when he had time and opportunity. besides having the same general description, most of it just doesn't match his M.O in 1974. the guy is seeing similarities because he's looking for them. he said the fact he blugeoned her seems like proof to him, but why would he attack and try to kill her that way. and then go back to pettier crimes, and then go on to rape 50+ women without ever killing any of them. and then to on to blugeon 12 victims. that's not how these kind of escalations work. had he attacked her and left her for dead in that orchard, AND seemingly got away with it ...why would he then to back to stealing trinkets from homes for another 6 months. I feel like if he got away with what he thought it was murder, it would change given him the confidence to do it again. everything we know about him shows that up until he made the decision to start killing people, he only ever attempted to kill somebody out of self preservation. the father of the teenage girl he attempted to abduct, who he murdered, the police officer who narrowing missed being killed cause the bullet hit the touch he was holding. , the neighbors that caught him snooping around who ended up being shot...so during that time there's no evidence showing him to be actively wanting or trying to kill people. also Deangelo was known for his detailed planning. even back on 1974 he always planned escape routes , gave himself early warning signals, and didn't go unprepared...and he has never picked up and attacked and killed a victim, so I just find it difficult to believe that he would do all these things he wasn't known to do at this time, and conduct an opportune rape and attempted murder, there's always a chance it might be him. anything is possible. but I've studied this case pretty well over the years, and I don't feel there's enough there to convince me. there's some similarities for sure. but I think even back in 74, Deangelo was very calculated, you can see plenty of evidence of this in the Visalia Ransacker case documents. he was never an opportunity killer or attacker. so it just seems odd to me that he would abandon all of that as soon as he spots a hitchhiker. he also mumbled plenty to himself but I've never heard any talk of him talking about Vietnam. but im sure there's plenty of vets ta that time who might have a screw loose, lots of them came back messed up m so it could have been any one of a number of crazy nam vets she met that day I kinda wish this episode was more devoted to the case than just discussing a maybe victim that can't really remember much and can't really be tied to Deangelo. just seems like a lot of maybes. and I think this was all started by the son wanting to find the guy who almost killed his mom, I think this is the closest possibility and he's just deciding to run with it in hopes of some closure, and I get that. but the attacks he comparing to his moms attack wouldn't be commited by Deangelo for another 6 years or so, and I just don't think the evidence supports this attack. theres also no evidence of Deangelo committing any other attacks or ransackings in that area, so there's just a lot of different things that don't really add up. all of that being said, anything is possible, and any killer, no matter how meticulous they are at planning their crimes. can ignore all of those natrual tendencies if he sees a girl hitchhiking...he may have just spotted that easy prey and couldn't help himself, so who really knows, but If it was him then I think it was merely an opportunity he couldn't pass up,...but even then if he got away with it then I'd expect him to be the type of predator Ed Kemper was, and using his car and picking women hitch hiking. but he didn't. so yeah, I'm very much torn.

I really hope it was DeAngelo who did this to Pamela because, if it wasn't then there was some other sicko out there doing horrendous things to people. I hope the truth is known one day.
