KILLER ON THE LOOSE [NEW PAINT-A-BOX STREET ART ON DAME STREET]
I do not know if this artwork refers to a specific incident or that it is part of a campaign highlighting that women do not believe the streets of Dublin to be safe.
A few hours ago I collected a meal from a local restaurant and while I was waiting outside I could hear Riders On The Storm by the Doors, one of my favourite songs. I always remember the lines "There's a killer on the road His brain is squirmin' like a toad. A few minutes later as I am walking down Dame street I noticed this paint-a-box street art. Note: Portions of the song's lyrics were allegedly inspired by the case of Billy Cook who had killed six people, including a young family, while hitchhiking to California.
Until recently the Irish Police refused to accept the fact that there could be serial killers in Ireland. However, in 2001 Gerry O'Carroll, a former member of the Garda murder squad claimed in an interview said that he has no doubt there is a serial killer on the loose in Ireland, responsible for the death of a number of missing women here. "My honest hunch is that we have a serial killer in our midst. It shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody; serial killers are operating in every country in the world and Ireland is no different. I do believe that there is a connection between the missing young women. I am convinced there is an organised killer who is evading us".
