Default Lisa Ziegert's killer also the Boston Mall Rapist?

With the recent arrest of Gary Shara for Lisa Ziegert's murder, after making a couple of interesting connections I couldn't help but wonder if he might be connected to the rapes.

Just some food for thought:

- Boston Mall rapes were in late 1989 and 1990, and abruptly stopped. Lisa Ziegert's murder was in 1992 in Agawam Massachusetts, only two years later and 90 miles away.

- Both Lisa Ziegert and the Boston Mall rape victims were both targeted in retail settings, although one was a doctor's office.

- Rapists often graduate to murder.

I don't know if Shara matches the description of the Boston Mall Rapist, but given these parallels can't help but wonder. Seems though they would have matched his DNA by now, but not necessarily. It took years to connect all of golden state killer's crimes.

I thought it was interesting enough possibility to post however slim odds what do you all think?

Very doubtful.

Gary Schara would have been around 19 years old in 1989, when the Boston rapist was doing his thing. The rapist was described as shorter, middle aged, balding with a pot belly. The composite of him looks like a middle aged version of Bobby from 'King of the Hill.'

Meanwhile, Gary Schara was the tall, dark and handsome type who had no problem getting attention from the ladies for years both before and after killing Lisa.

The two descriptions don't match up at all.

I thought the rapist was described as in his 30's, which I didn't put total credence into because scared witnesses often misjudged people's age. People thought EAR was younger than he was.

Also, I've only seen a head shot of Schara and didn't really know how tall he was. He just looked like he might be heavy set to me but I didnt really know.

Its a long shot I know. But given the time, proximity and MO I thought it eas at least worth mentioning.

I think what throws people off about the Boston Rapist is the actor in the reenactment looked so much different than the sketch.

I still have questions about Lisas death

If it was not Lisa in the car struggling with someone in back who did the witness see? And if it was did Schara have an accomplice the driver, who possibly bailed on Schara after driving into the wooded area?
