    Whilst listening to the show i noticed that the cases involved garages. I wonder if anyone knows if the homes involved possibly had the same developer or had garages/garage doors made by the same company. Perhaps the killer could be an employee of said company and has some form of access to multiple garages/doors. Also the "letters" that were left imprinted on the crime scene possibly "richard" or "petawawa" could have been a work shirt, you know the ones that have a sewn on name or company name tag. If that is the case maybe somebody could get a list of employees from that era in time and could possibly be on to something? Maybe I'm stretching a little here?

    It sounded like at least two of the victims had recently moved into their residences. Possibly the murderer worked for a moving company and had some contact with the victims and locations prior to the attacks. This is a seriously creepy and disturbing case!!

    Not sure why this one resonates with me so much, i like the idea that he could have been someone who was a home developer or possibly worked at a garage door company or repair shop, where he would have access many garage door openers are knew how to program one, I'm not really sure how garage door openers worked back then

    Fairly new to the show, but I do very much enjoy it. Hopefully this doochecanoe either ended up on the wrong end of the right gun barrel or died in prison from being hammered in the chocolate hole by Bubba Longschlong. Have you gentlemen ever covered any cases from the Hoosier State?

    It sounds like Bruce Bennett had quite the confrontation with the murderer. I wonder if he fatally injured the guy, which is possibly why there were no other attacks in the area after the Bennett family was murdered. It’d be interesting to know if the police have worked this angle - checking death and hospital records in the days after the Bennett family was attacked.

    Great stuff, guys. I am a Colorado native and was in high school in Aurora when this happened. Just a correction on location. Lakewood is in the west-northwest part of metro Denver. Aurora is east-southeast of metro Denver. In good traffic, it would take about 45 to 60 minutes to drive from Aurora to Lakewood. Alameda is one of the main roads across town. You can easily take Alameda from Aurora to Lakewood.

    Awesome episodes! This case is horrifying and fascinating. Two things: 1. I agreed with the discussion about the intruder possibly committing suicide or dying after the Bennett Family attack. What if Bruce fought hard enough to cause some sort of internal bleeding or something that wasn't sudden enough to kill the intruder right away but slowly killed him later in the hospital? Does anyone know if they police looked into hospital records after that attack? 2. By all accounts, this was a big fight between Bruce and the intruder. I'd be curious to understand the layout of the house because I would think the wife or kids would hear the fight and have enough time to call 911 or escape or something? The way all of the bodies were found in their beds (I think) confuses me as to how this fight didn't wake any of them up. This makes me think the intruder brought the knife with him because I don't think he would have had time to go find a knife in the house and come back to Bruch without someone getting away or calling police.

    I see where others have also suggested someone who works for a company that has the raised letters on their name tag. I was trying to figure out how letters would get transferred in blood without them being raised or embroidered so that definitely makes sense. Who knows but just throwing this out there if anyone has an opinion but other than "Richard" , which appears to me to be the most probable, if the letters were reversed you could maybe turn "PETAW-C" around into "WATER"....like the Aurora Water Department which may have had the familiar type of name tag and this would also give him a preview of different houses,families etc.....especially those that had recently moved in.

    Andrea I had wondered about that too. That is why I speculated that the phone line had been cut but then we learn that's not the case because Bruce's mother used the home phone to call 911. So my thought is this they very likely woke up at least 2 of the 3. They may have remained in their rooms out of fear. When I was a little kid in the 80's my home had 1 telephone - pretty common back then and it was located in the kitchen. This was probably the case for the Bennetts. Very sad. Nic

    I've never hear of this case; I have a few comments. 1. I too wonder about the layout of the Bennett house and why the family may not have woken up. If the garage door was open, perhaps the noise of it closing woke up Bruce. He goes to investigate, gets injured quickly then the killer kills the rest of the family then continues the fight with Bruce. This would explain why the rest of the family was in separate rooms and didn't appear to struggle (according to reports). I agree that the family may have had only 1 phone, that was pretty common back then. 2. The imprint from the killers shirt was probably a work shirt, but not necessarily a place he actually worked. He managed to get away with some very brazen attacks so I think he put a lot of thought into it. A work shirt/uniform would allow him to be in the area without arousing much suspicion, probably something that would allow him to walk around a neighborhood and not really stand out like a meter reader. Based on the timing of his crimes, he seemed to have a lot of free time to roam around and look for opportunities; I think all the attacks were crimes of opportunity. 3. I do believe the final attack on the Bennett family resulted in an injury or at least enough chaos to scare him away from the area. I don't think he killed himself or stopped and the police would have been smart enough to look for people with injuries at the hospitals. These were all brutal killings and likely not his first assaults. I believe people like this have a compulsion and they cannot just choose to stop. The attacks also kind of reminded me of Bundy's final spree when he didn't really have much to lose.

    Nic, it’s Cold CASE files with the one and only Bill Kurtis!!! Please redeem yourself by watching old episodes on YouTube. A home invasion is one of my worst fears. I grew up in the nineties and everyone left their garage door open overnight from time to time and woke up alive. I can’t imagine this happening in my neighborhood. It’s terrifying to think about.

    I don't think he was badly injured. The father, being unarmed, probably just grappled in effort to resist the intrusion. More so , he had the strength to kill and rape 2 more afterward. The guy conducted himself like a psycho. He clearly made no calculations or avoided risk. I am thinking he had a baaaad batch of drugs. Maybe OD'd or killed himself shortly after the murders.

    It's possible he moved out of the area and changed his weapon.seeing how it failed him against Bruce. Also possible if he tried the same thing in a different area some homeowner woke up and plugged bullets in the guy until he died. His attacks were very high risk and I don't think he could have stopped. Nic

I think the letters spell out Water too and the killer may have been employed with Aurora Water at the time as a Meter Reader or Technician. In such a position, the killer would know his way around residential properties and would have ample opportunity to strike whenever he could no longer resist his urges. Water Companies also tend to have excellent record retention for Personnel Records, Workers' Comp (injury) and even route assignment, etc. Thanks for the podcast!

    I wonder if police have looked at delivery people... like a postal carrier, newspaper delivery man, UPS driver... a mailman for instance, would know generally how many people were in the house, if they were out of town and were potentially holding their mail (Dixon), if a new family just moved in (Bennetts), and roughly when people are around during their deliveries (Smith). They would also know what houses have dogs and thus which ones to avoid. They might also note who doesn't keep things locked. Most delivery people have badges on their shirts... sometimes with name tags, sometimes just the company. Delivery people start their routes usually very early in the morning, so that could've disguised an unusual schedule to loved ones on some of the murder dates. As I understand it, some mail carriers will have set routes, but depending on seniority, might bounce around to routes that need to be covered or to different areas if say, the usual carrier is on vacation or is very behind on their route. So that could account for knowing the victims' addresses even if they are far apart. Also, it's possible that this person had a rotating day off schedule, like maybe they had every sixth day off... which corresponds to the murder dates.. Jan 4th, 10th, 16th.. That being said, he most likely died soon after the last killing. Or at least moved. Or went into the military.. or got so far into drugs that he didn't come out. It's difficult to imagine what could've stopped him if death didn't.

    I was 9 and living in Aurora when this happened. It was searing on the community. What is really scary is that at the time we had no idea this was a serial killer at work. The murder in Lakewood and the other attacks weren't connected yet or from what I remember even mentioned in the news. I think most people thought this was an isolated act and many assumed it was someone who knew the Bennetts or was a family member. I remember many folks putting double deadbolt locks on their doors. Kids weren't allowed to walk home from school alone and many gathered in groups at houses where parents were present until their parents could pick them up after school. I remember my older brother and cousin joking one night they were going to go out hunting "the hammer killer." They had baseball bats. I was scared. A friend from church lived on the same street as the murder and said the kids kept going up to the house and looking through the windows. Police (or someone) put newspapers up over the windows but not before the kids saw bloody handprints on the walls and blood all over the carpet (or so my friend said he saw). I just hope someone related to this monster goes into the system someday and they can link through the DNA. It seems like that is the only way it will ever be solved. I drive past this house every now and then - I'm not sure why. One day there was a big fluffy dog on the lawn and people outside and it was bizarre to see folks living there peacefully when something so horrendous had once happened there.

    These caveman attacks have psychosis written all over them, perhaps untreated schizophrenia--though it must be pointed out that schizophrenics are rarely violent.

    The attacks appear to be the work of a psychopath, random. But obviously there are consistencies to his MO, using a hammer, gaining entry through garages. He knew that some families don't lock their garage doors and some people fail to lock the house doors that are connected to the garage. So we have a psychopath that goes into homes and senselessly hammers people to death, BUT, he has the analytical know with all to stick to an intelligent plan for entry. Hard to imagine this guy stopping what he was doing until he died or got caught. My guess is he was arrested for something else and sentenced to prison, there he most likely got into further trouble and stayed confined to prison or a state hospital.

    Great Episode guys. I am currently investigating a Suspect that I know and see daily. He is a janitor that cleans our work office. He was convicted of Rape with home intrusion in 1988 and served time. He also live in several locations in CO at the time and matches the composite very well and is 60 years old today. I plan to forward the info onto investigators. I assume that his DNA is on file and that the CBI has tried to match against any surrounding states but this is worth a try.

    Fascinating and terrifying case. I had not heard of this one and enjoy listening to cases that I am unfamiliar with. I think that these attacks are related and that the killer would not have been able to stop committing crimes like this. He either moved, passed away or maybe got arrested for something else and is in jail. I like the theory that Bruce may have fatally injured the perpetrator when he fought back but I cannot imagine, if this was the case, him being able to focus and have the strength to rape and kill the other people in the house. When I think of the scenario you described with Bruce I imagine Boromir from LOTR. He kept getting shot with arrows and still fought! Sorry if that is inappropriate but that is what popped into my mind. Bruce is a hero and I am sad for all the victims. As always, keep up the great work!

    I believe he did plan the murders. He knew where and when. He did go through the garage or did they all recently move into the area? What about a repair man or Real estate, home furniture purchase. There has to be a link between the cases. For his motive to just be rape and murder random why kill the kids. He could’ve killed the parents and walked out. Idk. That’s a huge risk to this scumbag to not have cased the places first. People have guns and dogs ? Idk garage repair man. Hvac? Something has to link it all.

    I don't think he was fatally injured by Bruce. I may have been unclear on the show. We only know that there was DNA found. Probably from the rapes. I don't think he had an injury that would kill him, just one that was significant enough to stop him either for good or at least until he healed up. Could have tore something, fractured a bone. Rolled and broke an ankle or wrist. Eye gouge. The murder of the kids could have been the result of rage from the fight with Bruce. Just thoughts. Makes me angry just thinking about it. I would love to read an FBI profile on this killer. Nic

    I don't think he was fatally injured by Bruce. I may have been unclear on the show. We only know that there was DNA found. Probably from the rapes.
