Hillside Strangler (People)

"The murders are reminiscent of the Hillside Strangler case."
"Except the Hillside Strangler actually did strangle the girls."
"Party girls, like ours. Picked up outside of bars. The killer leaves his mark."
"Okay. Except for the asphyxiation, the imprisonment, the body disposal, these cases have a lot in common."

Sheriff Lamb compares Neptune's "E-String Strangler" to this pair of serial killers from the late 1970s. Kenneth Bianchi and Angelo Buono were two cousins convicted of torturing, raping, and killing girls and women for a four-month period from late 1977 to early 1978. The bodies were found on the same hills outside Los Angeles, hence the name. Lamb tries to show off that he's still in charge of the investigation by interrupting Keith whenever possible, making tenuous connections to another famous serial killer.
