Episode 26 Mr. Cruel

In the late 1980s and early 1990's, a serial predator targeted young girls in the Melbourne, Australia area. He would enter homes with a weapon subduing family members while sexually assaulting or abducting young female victims. Often, he wore a balaclava to disguise his face. Eventually, at least one one of his attacks and abductions resulted in murder. Despite police a lot of clues to work with, much of them provided by Mr Cruel's brave young victims, the case remains unsolved to this day.
The Citizen Detective team discusses the various suspects in this case, and whether there may be other victims. They also discuss how modern technology and DNA Science, may be able to help ID this predator once and for all. Geoprofiler Douglas MacGregor, who has heavily researched this case and has been a guest on the show before, is back to lend his expertise to the discussion.
