Of course, my aunt loved sports and looked the same, yet she was straight. This is all unfounded speculation. Still, I don't rule out the chance that she was gay.

BTW, Don Dixon looks like the type to hang around elementary schools. Just sayin

I understand completely. But honestly, how many straight men would have two close gay friends who were close enough to be interviewed on tv?

My husband is the first that springs to mind, though off the top of my head I can think of at least 2 other straight guys I know who have multiple gay friends who are very close.

I must say that this is a very interesting thread. And, yes, I could see UM not being forthcoming with information about some of the victims' sexuality whether potentially relevant to the case or not.

I think Amy Bradley looks like, well, a young woman from the late 90's. That short hairstyle was fairly popular back then. I had several straight girl friends who had it.

Doubt that. The guy in the photo was butt ugly and a gang type bandana was found in his car. Matt wasnt looking for a hook up that night, and we dont even know if he was gay. I believe he had work the next day, so he didnt plan on staying out late. Discard the theory.

People who hire prostitutes really don't care about how attractive they are. Have you seen streetwalkers before? The fact that Matthew didn't plan on staying out late means nothing. He could have simply changed his mind.

I'm pretty much certain they were. In fact, she was covertly going on a break to bone that guy in the Caribbean, and make that crazed journalism project traveling on a wrecked sieve on the side.

Since nobody here knew Matthew, I guess anything is possible. But I think we're getting a little off track here regarding his activities the night he was killed.

Regardless of whether he was gay or not, I highly doubt he was looking for a hookup or in need of a prostitute. I just think he planned on depositing his paycheck, buying some cat food and coming straight home like Teresa said. He just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Going to an ATM alone at night is bad news and I don't think people were as aware of that in the 1980's as they are now. The simplest explanation is usually the right one.

I too think he was abducted at gunpoint, while drawing money out of the ATM. Someone brought up earlier in the thread the fact that the man in the composite may have been a "pickup" and I kind of expanded on that idea as a possibility.

I got the vibe from the Don Kemp segment that he and the guy in the trailer possibly had a homosexual relationship. Did anyone else feel that way? I also thought perhaps Kristen Modafferi was a lesbian.

Are you sure that those girlfriends of yours are straight?

Default She and a stranger got friendly faster and faster -- NOT necessarily for sex !

Don't know about Kemp. For Modafferi you have nothing to go on. She moved to the most heavily populated megalopolis in North America without knowing a single person there. During the month she spent there after having traveled 3,000 miles, she made eye contact with ten times more people than she actually spoke to. She barely scratched the surface of friendship with anyone who was in the very small percentage of Bay Area residents with whom she talked. Did she place a newspaper ad that included her new land line number ? That was a scary thing to do in the era before Myspace. I was too scared to do that before Myspace.

Modafferi could have been fooled by a bad person who increased their mutual familiarity in an exponentially faster way -- more intimate conversation after one minute, ten times as intimate after two minutes. Or it could have been one day / two days. And they could have been inside that San Francisco shopping mall talking about the beauty of Lands End -- not sex. The point is we know their mutual familiarity and Modafferi's trust in the other person increased faster, faster, faster within a very short time. Minutes ? Days ? Even if it were two weeks, that's not long enough for some young women in strange surroundings to become suspicious of a new acquaintance in a megalopolis.

Modafferi planned to take a photography course, but no one in such a class has come forward to say he or she ever met her. Back then an aspiring photographer had to get information by talking, not typing or texting. Modafferi was vulnerable. Unfortunately, in death she is vulnerable to people who claim to have "gaydar." Law enforcement doesn't use such a thing.

Modafferi's case remains as mysterious as the skeleton discovered encased in a block of ice in Wisconsin in the 1980s. That's in another thread I started less than an hour ago.

I cannot recall the man's name but he was Asian. apparently he was found shot to death in his bed. and his friend found him. there was vibes of a coverup because the Sherriff burned the Mattress. rumors arose that the victim had been seeing the Sherrif's wife. but I thought the friend who discovered his body seemed gay. like he was infatuated with the deceased man.
Oh yes...that has been my theory all along on the case. Remember how Eric and his date heard banging outside? and Eric sort of ignored (probably guessed who it was) I TOTALLY think Dixon had a crush and when it wasn't mutal he couldn't deal with it.
