"Excitement's Crave"

 

In December of 1977, a poem typed on legal size onion skin was received in the mail by The Sacramento Bee, The Sacramento mayor's office, and Sacramento television station KVIE. The poem is possibly an authentic communication from the EAR/ONS.

Excitement's Crave All those mortal's surviving birth Upon facing maturity, Take inventory of their worth To prevailing society. Choosing values becomes a task; Oneself must seek satisfaction. The selected route will unmask Character when plans take action Accepting some work to perform At fixed pay, but promise for more, Is a recognized social norm, As is decorum, seeking lore. Achieving while others lifting Should be cause for deserving fame. Leisure tempts excitement seeking, What's right and expected seems tame. "Jessie James" has been seen by all, And "Son of Sam" has an author. Others now feel temptations call. Sacramento should make an offer. To make a movie of my life That will pay for my planned exile. Just now I'd like to add the wife Of a Mafia lord to my file.

The "Punishment Map" and "Homework" pages

 

After the attack of December 9, 1978 in Danville, police dogs followed the EAR's scent from the victim's house to a nearby area adjacent to some railroad tracks. The dogs abruptly lost the rapist's scent, presumably because EAR entered his vehicle at the spot, but police discovered three sheets of loose leaf notebook paper on the ground. It is possible EAR dropped these papers inadvertently as he fled the area. One featured a hand drawn map of an unidentified residential area, on the back of which was scrawled the word "punishment".  On another was part of an essay on General George Custer, and the last was an angry essay on the writer's memories of their sixth grade year.
