Dark Side of Paradise

Man this is sad... Fairly recent story as well. I could see how this could happen pretty easily. You just assume all cruisers are nice people...

That guy Don Winner is the man, he apparently caught "wild bill" holberty as well, another serial killer in Panama:



I have a lot of faith when I go places, even places where I know that if I were killed nobody would ever know. I always think that serial killers are in the movies only. But this guy caught 4 serial killers in the Panama ex-pat community, and that can't be a huge community. Makes you wonder...

Kind of a scary thought for me, in particular. I'm hoping to be in the vicinity this coming fall and winter.

Unfortunately, cruisers, by and large, are generally kind, gentle and helpful folks that are always willing to help a fellow cruiser in need. This was apparently the case here, but the person he helped and befriended ended up killing him.

Wow! You must be as old as I am. If it wasn't for being able to hitchhike I would never have been able to get home for a weekend liberty from Norfolk to Baltimore. When I was in the Navy I was only making $87.50 a month, which precluded buying a car, let alone paying for gas and insurance.

Cheers,

Gary
