    The most notorious child serial killer in California history allegedly buried one of his victims under a freeway offramp, which just happens to be the freeway offramp I use.

    It's amazing that this sleepy little community has become the focal point for this. Who knows what else they may find...

    Kind of strange. We have been seeing signs about the offramp and onramp closures for a week or so, suddenly we saw this on the news last night and there was a call from the sheriff's department about it too. The really wild part is that they just finished widening that freeway to three lanes.

    THis part of the story blew my mind!

    "DeWalt noticed that a suspect sketch in that case resembled a photo of Edwards from 1970, and started looking into the files."

    So, because this guy recognized the killer's photo this poor boy can be reunited with his parents? That's amazing. It's crazy how stuff like this works! Definitely a sad story, but at least it finally has a ending for the boy's family!

    The offramp is still closed and I guess they are still digging. It has given this sleepy little community something to talk about.

    In the light of my, very limited but personal, knowledge of 'cadaver' dogs, I strongly suspect that the remains are unlikely to have been on the site for 40 years. Perhaps your community harbours more than one secret...........
