Novel Investigation

A: Peter Merylo was a cop's cop, the type of guy who gave 200 percent to his job. If it involved decapitation or dismemberment, he was inclined to see them as connected.

A: The killer in Cleveland is someone large and powerful who knew [Kingsbury Run] very well. The Cleveland butcher obviously had medical training. With the murder swamp victims [near New Castle, Pa.], the prevailing wisdom is they were victims of mob violence in either Youngstown or Pittsburgh. As far as the victims found in boxcars [in Stowe Township, Pa.] in 1940, we're dealing with an entirely different person.

A: The more I got into it, the more I realized it was a thoroughly competent and professional investigation. They simply did not understand the serial killer dynamic. They always assumed a murder victim was killed by someone he knew.
