The Skid Row Slayer
In 1974-75 the LAPD found six downtown derelicts with their throats slashed
and their bodies bearing signs of ritualistic abuse. They had cups of blood next
to them, salt sprinkled around the outlines of their heads and cryptic marks
scribbled around the slash wounds. When the cops announced that the killer was
probably "a blond, sexually impotent and cowardly homosexual,"
Greenwood, a black man, was obviously not in their suspect list. Eventually he was arrested after he axed someone next to Burt Reynold's house. The police linked him to the skid row murders and four others. Surely he must have been wearing a blond wig or something when he committed his crimes.
