    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.

  2. I recall seeing this case on The FBI Files-Dark Woods (The program had Meirhoffer’s name changed to Masterson and didn’t use the names [nor made up names] of the 2 boys that were killed). They first only brought up the killing 12-year-old Boy Scout Michael Rainey because of the possibility that his killer may have returned 5 years later (at the Headwaters Camp ground) and abducted Susie Jager (plus raped and murdered her before dismembering her body).

    Towards the end of the episode they brought up all 4 killings. David stated that killing 13-year-old Bernie Pullman was revenge on Bernie’s brother (A fellow student who picked a fight with David). When asked why he killed Mike Rainey, his response was, to embarrass the local troop for kicking him out.

    But on the FBI Untold Stories, they never mentioned the killing of the 2 boys. It focused more on Susie Jager and very little on Sandra Smallegan (David’s ex-girlfriend who only dated him once)

  3. He reminds me very much of a young Charles Manson. You can see the “hard eyes”.
