Green River Killer on TV: ‘Nothing remarkable at all about him’ to suggest he was violent

One of Washington’s most notorious serial killers will be featured Saturday (Nov. 24) on “Criminal Confessions,” a documentary series that focuses on police interrogations.

Gary Ridgway, the Green River Killer, now 69, has been interrogated countless times since he was first arrested in 2001.

Although Ridgway was convicted of killing 49 women, officials estimate the number is between 60 and 80.

“There was nothing remarkable at all about him to suggest that he could be a violent offender at the level that he was,” Mary Ellen O’Toole, an FBI profiler who first interviewed Ridgeway in 2003, told Fox News. “Nothing.”
