    Nice guy. Where do you all find these people? Sites like ET make all those arguments about “well, it never used to happen back in the day” sort of moot. It happened, we just didn’t have the internet. News didn’t carry like it does now.

      I read about Mr. McLachlan in a book that cataloged every execution in the state of California since it became a state. There are several books like that, all part of the same series, covering different states. I’ve been able to get quite a few good stories out of them.

      I think it’s likely that McLachlan had more victims, ones he sexually abused but didn’t kill. You don’t suddenly wake up and decide to rape and murder a little girl when you’re in your late fifties, no matter how drunk you are.
