    My broyher was in Ashland ,Kentucky State Prison years ago and before they let anyone out the inmates would hold them down and give them a tattoo of a teardrop under their eye so they would know each other for ears to come. With al the picturs looking so dfferent could it be more than one person . Could be why the tattoo is under a different eye on some of them. My brother had his taken off back in the 70's but could the same thing still be going on in Ashland?

    This guy needs to be fed to the alligators.
    Very slowly lowered into a pit full of gators.
    This will send a message to all others, that the rape of anyone,
    women or man, will not be tolerated by anyone.

    To all women of Los Angeles... KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN!! When a stranger appears from out of nowhere and starts up a conversation with you, always be on guard. And to mothers, make sure your daughters are well informed of this serial predator. Their safety depends on you to educate them well!

      So once again, women should be afraid to go out in public and live their lives because some man chooses to be a serial rapist. No admonishment to rapists or other predators at all to stop harming other people. Furthermore, women don't need to leave the house to be sexually assaulted. This is more of the same victim-blaming that treats women as if they aren't capable, functioning adults.

    As a former law enforcement agent I hope they considered that that tattoos are temporary. That would explain the witnesses descriptions of the the tattoos being on different sides.

      I agree with Doug's ,sometimes tattoes are temporary,here in Japan they call it "Oneday" tattoe.This is really scary.I hope he'll be caught soon.
