The Craigslist Killer previously on MeFi. That FPP is an Atlantic article from 2013, so I look forward to comparing the two.

Oh God, the Kern family are the only commenters on the Craigslist Killer article. I cannot imagine being them and reading that story.

Thanks for linking that TedW. I haven't read either article yet, so I'll enjoy comparing them as well when I read them this week.
