He also had a family, whose loss of him is also great as anyone’s loss. So they, too, are victims on another level. Victims of his crimes will never see him pay for what he has done to them. His crimes occurred across the country, in many different states. These cases are being presented to help law enforcement compare these cases with other cases in their jurisdictions. In other words, identifying these victims may aid other investigation. It may help prevent other victims, and is a safety and prevention campaign.
