An Excerpt from "The Doodler"
A couple days ago on this show, Chronicle journalist Kevin Fagan told you all about his latest project: the untold story of the Doodler, a new documentary podcast series from Ugly Duckling Films.
On his show, Kevin dives into the archive of his paper and the San Francisco Police Department in search of a serial killer known for drawing portraits of his victims. This killer, known as the Doodler, targeted his attacks against gay men in the Bay Area between 1974 and 1975.
He brutally beat and murdered at least five gay men and got away with it due to little evidence and lack of attention from the media and the police at the time.
SFPD re-opened the case in 2018 and it's still ongoing today. Police believe the Doodler is still alive and have released an age-progressed sketch of the suspect, which you can see in the image above.
Follow this new hunt for a forgotten serial killer and subscribe to The Doodler on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen. Take care, and we’ll see ya here on Storied: San Francisco next week.
