“Personally, I don't think he is a serial killer but just a thief, an ordinary thief who has been attacking soft targets such as women. And I don't think he was operating alone, there may be others like him, but of course we are investigating that and we shall come to the bottom of it.”
“Maybe this is why so many serial killers work in pairs. It's nice not to feel alone in a world full of victims or enemies. It's no wonder Waltraud Wagner, the Austrian Angel of Death, convinced her friends to kill with her.

“What we've got here is a sexually sadistic pathological serial killer. And he is the scariest of them all, the Hollywood type that we see in the movies and don't really think is going to strike in our neighborhood. But he's out there.”
“The thing that is fearful for the people in this country is that generally when you have a serial killer there is a preferential group of people that they look for. The problem with a spree killer like this, he will kill anyone who comes across his path.”
“Most serial killers — and I do believe this was a serial-killing crime — are anger retaliatory killers. They tend to do crimes that are much quicker. But this crime is what we call a sexually sadistic serial killer who very much enjoys the entire process of the torture and the murder.”
“When you incarcerate a serial killer, your crime rate goes down - the public is safer. When you incarcerate a drug trafficker, someone else just steps in and takes the job. They don't take their crime to prison with them.”
