SFPD Release “Doodler” Mass Murder Suspect Sketch

More than 40 years after a serial killer dubbed the “Doodler” terrorized San Francisco’s gay community, police released a sketch Wednesday of what the man might look like today and announced a $100,000 reward for details leading to his capture, reports The Associated Press.

Police believe the killer stabbed at least five men to death between early 1974 and late 1975.

He became known as the “Doodler” after a victim who survived an attack told police the man was doodling while they talked at a late-night diner and said he was a cartoonist.

In the 1970s, this was gripping the gay community and San Francisco,” police Commander Greg McEachern revealed during a news conference today, saying authorities were releasing the new sketch in hopes of bringing justice to victims of the “horrendous homicides.”

San Francisco police are offering a $100,000 reward for anyone with information leading to the killer.
