Who Is The Green River Killer? How Detectives Played Into Gary Ridgway’s Personality To Prompt 48 Murder …

The Green River Killer evaded police for dozens of years before being caught and convicted of 48 murders in 2001. FBI profiler Mary Ellen O’Toole was a part of the team that finally forced confessions from him, a job which proved to be a daunting team effort, which took months. The extravagant interview tactics chosen by the team of detectives is shown in Saturday’s episode of Criminal Confessions, and footage from the months-long interrogation is spotlighted to show how truly trying the interactions were.

The Green River killer, which is the subject of this week’s Martinis Murder podcast, came onto the police and public’s radar with a bang on August 5, 1982, when three bodies were found in the Green River near Seattle. A few days later, three more bodies were found in the area. They were all young prostitutes working on and around the SeaTac strip, which is near the Seattle-Tacomah International Airport, and they had all been killed the same way.

Over the course of years, dozens more young sex workers would fall prey to the Green River Killer, who eluded police for 20 years.
