Any of my Australian peeps know the location of the first official Mr. Cruel attack? It was on or near Para Road and Main in Lower Plenty (Melbourne). I have the addresses for the other 3 strikes. Also, does anybody know where the Linas’ rental car had been parked, that is, where Mr. Cruel switched cars to his own car? You can E me or message me on FB. Thanks.

Going through my first book’s clippings. "During a recent trip to New Mexico, I finally tackled Quasar's book and found it to be the best book I've ever read on this important subject. Quasar is a serious-minded researcher who, rather than sensationalizing or speculating in an irresponsible manner, reports the cold, hard facts. This includes hundreds of US Coast Guard and National Transportation Safety Board reports, which reveal the shocking statistics-- people are going missing, and no one can explain why." -- Andrew Griffin, the Town Talk, New Orleans, April 4, 2004.

Going through old reviews of my first book Into the Bermuda Triangle. I came across this from New Yachting Magazine (December 2003). Someone always has to make a crack about my name.
"Not only has Quasar researched the usual disappearances of note, he goes into some detail using recently released NTSB reports, noting that there have been more than 1,000 disappearances in the last 50 years. . .We wondered about the author's name, Quasar, which in normal parlance means any of a class of celestial objects that resemble stars but whose large redshift and apparent brightness imply extreme distance and huge energy output, and if it might relate to the book and we weren't disappointed."

May 24, 2017
Sorry about the lack of updates. There’s stuff on EAR/ONS I cannot talk about. I’ve been slammed with getting my Kolchakian BT II ready. I’m working on a few other cases. I was sidetracked by an offer to star in my own TV series on the Triangle, but I could not make the schedule for the presentation reel, so I opted out. I rather like moving forward with cold case. In looking back there are a few cases in the Triangle that have always suggested possible crimes or other unusual events. My next blog will be on the What’s Left? case. Just what did happen to Gary Lisk, Neil Eddleman Sr. and his young son, Neil Jr?

Michelle Cruz and I will be appearing on Tim Binall’s radio show. We will record in early May. Tim saw 48 Hours last night but wants to concentrate on the facts and cases in his show rather than human interest. So I take it we will try and make this an easy audio listening rendition of the case as presented on Q Files. I limited the Q Files to a fact based pursuit of all the topics I investigate. I think the only “human interest” page involving me and EAR/ONS is Stalking the Ultimate Stalker in which I write about how I pursued EAR/ONS to finally out him. Tim’s shows last over a couple of hours and he keeps a podcast link online for years, so this should be a very significant source of information.

A reminder that my new public falter ego me page is up on Facebook now, and it can be accessed at this link on the icon. Since I have come of central focus on the web for my cold case investigations, I have been made aware how many people do not wish to openly connect on my personal page, so I thought the public page would be easier fro them to follow, with or without hooking up. FB sends me weekly reports on how many visit the page, and I am grateful. Q Files continues, however, to be the center of my expression, as I intended it to be. Since the EAR/ONS press conference last June 15, 2016, over three quarters of a million have visited that section alone. This year promises to be exciting. I will be using my historical society contacts to uncover all locations where NORCAL struck, plus several other cold cases. More updates to come soon.

I don’t know if the Fort Lauderdale NAS historical society still puts on a big memorial service, but they used to during Alan McElhiney’s tenure there. I usually get inundated today since my investigation and book They Flew into Oblivion is still regarded as the number one source on the subject.
But let me take this time to assure those who are most interested in EAR/ONS that I am still investigating and proceeding forward. The dearth of information has not meant there is no information. It is during my silent periods where I am being the most intense. Let’s go to the Quester Blog:

Happy Halloween to all those out there. Sorry about letting the blog slip, but when I go into writing mode I tune out and into another world. I will resume it as soon as I am able. It appears for EAR/ONS the schtick is beginning. We are getting bogus suspects now, some supposed suspects are speaking out. Resentment is still expressed against me by some for my surprise entrance into the pursuit of EAR/ONS and then in making it all free on my website here. I’ve been accused of being a game changer who has led to the death of another person. A lawsuit is threatened against me in the case of The Westfield Watcher, alleging that I used a photographer’s photo of the private residence of Derek and Maria Broaddus in one of my “Recent Events” posts and unless I pay up post supposed facto I will be sued for $150,000.00 smackerals. To their surprise, perhaps, they will discover this is entirely a noncommercial, personal site, with no profit potential or paid advertising. As for ZODIAC: I sit in the same position as EAR/ONS. I am still seeking handwriting, and when I have it you will get the announcement here first.
As for EAR/ONS— a topic for which I am both loved and hated. I griped yet more people in that world of fake aliases by saying I am the only one to have reinvestigated the case since the beginning. For those who know the meaning of the word, it is true. I refused to investigate any suspect or POI until I was finished with laying bare the entire crime spree again, down to finding where the bloodhounds vectored. I changed the narrative and simply did not investigate some supposedly suspicious person in connection with the old narrative. I did not limit myself to one aspect of the case, one case within the dossier of brutal carnage. This does not minimize what others have done. What a Concord detective could not do, two members of a message board did as it relates to the background voices on the “Gonna Kill You” recording. Others like J.J. MacGregor spent countless hours finding historic newspaper clippings and trying to pinpoint the exact locations of the strikes. Lt. Larry Crompton gave body to it all by saving and compiling the cases in Sudden Terror, and Lt. Richard Shelby advanced the case with details from specific cases in Hunting a Psychopath. Jack Gray brought clarity to murder scenes in Hot Prowl. Michelle McNamara did her best to put a spotlight on EAR/ONS and try and keep it there. Michelle Cruz overcame her reticence to speak and is now one of the most valuable assets in obtaining media coverage. Debbie Domingo has done likewise. But I alone dusted off every case, documented it, and then investigated the sum, presenting the results where they alone could have an impact. A book could not do it. The result you all know. EAR/ONS has had news flurries before, but they always faded away. Now he is sticking. He is crystalizing as the “real life Michael Myers” and this will over come his lame moniker and keep him in the public mind.
It has been 5 years now that I have hunted the ultimate stalker. I crawled in every sewer and canal he had been in, filmed it all. I have been inundated with emails calling my attention to suspicious persons. To facilitate matters I will be forwarding any reliable claim to the lead Fed on the case now.
The rest can be for another time on here. I am going to burn out of the public forum the entire idea that one of those sketches made of the two men at the Maggiore Double Murder is the “best” there is of EAR. We don’t need more falsehood misdirecting us down the wrong paths.
October 27, 2016
EAR/ONS-- The Night Predator-- is now finally coming to the fore yet again. But we are at a precarious moment. The EAR has had news surges before, and yet he quickly slipped back into obscurity. However, the identity as the “real life Michael Myers” is sticking, and I feel that this time EAR/ONS, regardless of his lame acronym, will solidify and take form in the public consciousness in a way that will not allow him to be forgotten yet again. Michelle Cruz boldly stepping forward will prove an enormous component in helping to get the word out. More notoriety can only help in finally resolving my POI, and the secondary POIs within the network I uncovered. It will also help to determine if the hang-up phone calls Michelle received in 2001 were from EAR or from a crank. I’m not sure if the news reports in 2001 even mentioned EAR used such a method. If they didn’t, it is strange that some crank would try elements of an MO of which he most likely could not have been aware.
I have never encountered a problem with law enforcement’s pursuit of EAR, but I have learned to appreciate the problems they encounter and must deal with. More media can only assist them as well. Our investigations are entirely separate unless I am asked to give input or come across evidence which requires I initiate contact with them.

On stranger tides indeed. . . . I finally got a video made of the Mayday call of N3808H transmitted by Jose Torres on June 28, 1980, before he and Jose Santos, the passenger, vanished. The page regarding the incident is also back up on my site, which links to it. I know a lot of links do not work yet or pages are not linked though they are up, and I know I have been remiss in keeping up my blog. But I am writing a book right now and when I do so I go into another world. There is nothing more mentally, physically and emotional draining than writing a book, especially nonfiction. I update as I am able.
October 2, 2016
Thanks to John Grace we are off to a good start. Our interview about EAR/ONS so far has had three times more than the other downloads from MMC main website and thousands more from other portals. We will be doing live radio and podcasts in October, including some big gigs. I will keep you informed here along with updates on my other projects. To listen, click on the link below please. It is time to let people know there was a real life Michael Myers, more cunning, calculating but possibly still with us.
September 23, 2016
Sunday, the first show featuring me and Michelle Cruz will air discussing the case of EAR/ONS. This will be on Midnight Movie Cowboys. John is quite keen on the case, and this was a wise choice for the first time out because the hosts know more about the subject matter. Cameron Cloutier had also been a guest a couple of years ago. Check out their website for show time. Other bookings have come in, and I will update when it comes closer to show dates.
September 21, 2016
I am preparing for nationwide radio hook ups and then international podcast editions of shows that will revolve around discussing EAR/ONS. Michelle Cruz and perhaps others will be appearing as well. I never pitch myself to do interviews, but Michelle had wanted to do a Skype interview with me. I don’t Skype, but I thought it’s time to go for the real thing. This always happens when I have a book release, but I didn’t think of doing it with a web section release. As you all know, I will not write a book on EAR/ONS. Night Predator is my contribution. It is my investigation to uncover the No. 1 predator and hopefully solve the case. I will keep people posted here on dates.

A number of people have expressed their concern if I have turned RP and MRL into the right authority. A couple even expressed their worry that someone else might turn RP in and try and get the reward. I assure you my investigation is well known. Personally, I do not believe the reward will ever be paid out. I have indeed turned both in, both last year and again this year, to different jurisdictions. How far it has gone up the pipeline I do not know. I am still seeking handwriting examples. As for ZODIAC, I am deep within HorrorScope right now and I have the scent. I just don’t want to get a fistful of attorneys to push for the release of certain records wherein his handwriting would definitely be contained. Both cases are daunting, since both of my suspects are dead, but the brightest glimmer right now is with ZODIAC. So please be patient. I will be updating my blog soon.

The Real Flight of Flight 19 is finally up today. I will be adding more links here as the rest of the pages are uploaded. The PBM Mariner: a Footnote with a Big Kick is back up. Views of the Okefenokee, one of my most popular, is now back up! I dislike having to hit, but Flight DUI was necessary. Until my original website bermuda-triangle.org went up in 1999, the popular image of Flight 19’s saga was governed by the only book written about it, way back in 1980. From what I had discovered, I had to take it on really hard. These articles broke ground and I was immediately sought by the History Channel and Travel Channel, then others, in order to put it straight. This culminated in They Flew into Oblivion in 2005. The First time I had to hit hard. But Bad Navigation? started the unraveling of 2 decades of folklore and I went on to write the definite biography that I lament in the article had never been written. Finally A 6th Avenger? and Through the Hoaxing Glass are back up. I had to hit the hardest here with this Flight 19 hoax, but it really only scratches the skin of the damage that had been done.
July 14, 2016
I finally got up the first page back up in my Flight 19 section. It’s been a few months since my last site came down, and this is one of my most popular sections, so I thought I better get back up as soon as I could. More pages will soon be added. The Eye has also finally gone up.

July 5, 2016-2
I have been able to upload the Introduction Page to Persons of Interest in the case of EAR/ONS today. I need a link as always, so you might as well have a preview. I have to check it for accuracy before it is linked along with the POI pages.
July 5, 2016
I hope all had a great celebration. Just a little update to forewarn that the POI page for EAR/ONS will be going up this week. Initials will be used rather than full names since the purpose is to collate data under a working hypothesis rather than target an individual. It is also to concentrate in one location information that has been gleaned and presented piecemeal on the old updates page and on my blog.

I’m beginning to get up the new, improved Triangle section of the Q Files. My series of article 500 Leagues of Sea was always the most popular, so I have placed it first as the series of articles, written magazine style, to introduce the subject. I need a link as always to examine the pages, so here it is for everybody. I think a lot of layout work is necessary, but be patient. I will be working on it over the weekend.
June 27, 2016
Well, I think I’ve stirred up enough interest and direction of late. I am preparing my POI page. It will not be overwhelmingly deep, but it is time to get down some basics on a few guys that need to be pursued, as logistics allow. I will link to it from here first when done. Until then there is no foreseeable need to keep up little updates. I will update as major events unfold. I have many subjects to update. As you know, this is not what I do for work. Pursuing the truth behind many mysteries and dark deeds is purely my “hobby.” I am not just on the web. I investigate in real life and I have places to go and scenes to see. I am trying to get up my other information and sections as time allows. Please be patient.

The underbelly of Carmichael-- things one has to consider when trying to make heads and tails of the sketches and the reports of “suspicious persons” and EAR’s early pattern.

Appreciating a little of how the G-Men can help . . . EAR/ONS & The FBI
June 22, 2016
I’m working again to standardize the site and bring all EAR/ONS pages up to the same artistic display, with updated and complete information. . . . as you all know. I thought I would be done by Memorial weekend, but not a chance. All other site design artwork is completed, and I will be transferring over from my blog D.B. Cooper and The Phantom material refined. EAR material will be updated with some cases having the alternate location, where there are disagreements-- e.g. Richdale vs Mississippi Bar for No. 16. A blog went up on EAR’s masks at Quester blog. A Stitch in Time By EAR/ONS.
June 21, 2016
I called the FBI. I don’t like to do that. But I did. Due to a rumor or assertion going around that those ski masks shown in the FBI gallery on their EAR/ONS page are not real but only examples, I had to call and get clarification from Gina Swankie. She was very nice, but I received the usual surprise that the FBI would post anything that wasn’t factual. Those ski masks are real. They are in the actual evidence locker. She could not confirm the circumstances of their finding, but I assume they were the ones found at Northwood and Thornwood.

The Way to San Jose and Sobbing in San Jose are finally up. No wonder I was stressed all those years trying to get this site activated. It is a nightmare going back over this stuff and then trying to get everything to work. Just two pages wore me out. Finally, though, except for some section redesign on the other pages, I can limit myself to POI updates. The dossier is sufficient. It is time to continue the hunt of the EAR.
June 18, 2016
Not exactly a happy anniversary, obviously; but today, that is, early this morning, was 40 years to the day since EAR emerged from the night, bottomless probably, and childishly tried to cut Victim No 1’s phone wire outside. In any case, my Quester blog has a post on EAR and the News today. I am working on getting up the San Jose strikes to finally finish the tally. They have languished undone for over a year. I will place a link here later. As you all know, I want this site finished, so I need only maintain my updates and POI page as I continue to uncover specific information on my person(s) of interest. With this I can devote more time to my other projects, which have been piling up.
June 17, 2016
I was finally able to get the full Fed maps to load today. I noticed that No. 32 is actually the Maggiore Double Murder site. The number is thrown off by including the Ripon Court shooting as a definite EAR crime. They do not count the Rossmoor strike. The dots in Rancho are only general, as you all no doubt noticed. But the others seem pretty accurate. I know Shelby had said “Kersey” for a San Jose attack and there is no such street, but there is Kesey. More than one person told me it was Kesey, and the map seems to indicate that area. Hopefully, it is right. The other street in San Jose is Havenwood.
A number of people brainstormed the homemade mask. Hopefully, I will be able to show the same material out of which it was made soon. The padding probably indicates the use of goggles. This was a mask tailored for another purpose and substituted by EAR for stalking at night. . . .apparently. More on that later.
I will be putting up a POI page soon, linked off a Special Introduction page. Updates is not the right place to introduce and consolidate all the information that points to a specific person anymore.
Actually there is a test page up already (unlinked because it doesn’t have the new site style yet) where the special introduction can be found.

Yum, yum, that special clue. . . . The Devil’s in the Stitch. In this case, it truly is a stitch in time.
June 16, 2016
Well, the flurry of interest has died down. Analytics showed the site had a huge surge in interest, especially the Victim No 1 page, Janelle Cruz’s page, and Critical Clue? The Maggiore Double Murder. If you understand the jurisdictional problems out there in prosecuting and even investigating the EAR case you can appreciate Sac. County’s gesture yesterday. The other jurisdictions that have clear paths to prosecuting could never have mounted such interest. EAR struck over a wide range of counties in So. Cal, so that his crimes didn’t particularly stand out from all the other murders. Only Sacramento where he began could launch such a media campaign, since Sac alone can speak of over 30 victims. Their hold on EAR as the Maggiore Double Murderer may be a slim as that blue shoelace, but they used it as wise custodians. They spent lots of time and money to springboard the FBI launch. I only hope in future they release many more photos of the evidence— artwork or pictures of the jewelry stolen, that flashlight Shelby speaks of, a nice overhead of those ski masks(!). The map has been invaluable. They are placing #31 where I was first told near the El Parque area. I opted on statements made public, which put it far away from there, so I have to reconcile them. I have pics of all the places and the alternates. I must dig to find that part of town again. I’m close enough, but I don’t wish to revisit and take photos. I did that for years.
I fear now old ground will be gone over. Someone named Boyer will be turned in yet again; Carter, DeBoard, Tollefson, Manier. I probably can’t name them all. A former FBI agent will be accused. The Visalia Ransacker Case and the Snelling murder will taint the investigation. I will proceed with my own investigation, ever grateful to be out of the spotlight. Nevertheless, what Sac did was enormous, and I hope people can really appreciate how much they want to get the real life Michael Myers, knowing that other jurisdictions will have to prosecute him.

A little blog post on the press conference. Quester Blog. Although I say there was little of investigative value that was released, everybody has been goosed by that mask in the middle in the photo gallery. It is a clue!

You all know my opinion of the “Kascinski Sketch,” but apparently is was declared the best sketch. My ever irascible artist friends went to work. Bill did this one. Aged enhanced. He’s doing the others.
June 15, 2016-2
As we’ve all seen from the map, they are now counting the Ripon Court Shooting as Case 14, thus throwing off the count. Case 14 on Thornwood is now listed as Case 15, etc.

I have been told that Fox 40, Sacramento, will carry the EAR/ONS conference live. This article was posted this morning. It’s pretty anemic, but I doubt they had much time to prepare for it. It does mention Carol Daly.
June 14, 2016-3
For those who griped, the old UPDATES page for EAR/ONS has been put back up. It will remain up until all the information that is pertinent on there is incorporated into my update of the whole section, which right now is stymied at Case 15.
June 14, 2016-2

I’ve been chewed out by more than one person for taking my old site down, but here finally I am beginning to put up the new and highly anticipated, so I’m told in expletives, section of the Quester Files’ Bermuda Triangle section. I need a link to check it out myself, so you can get a preliminary sneak peak also.
June 13, 2016
Monday, June 13, doesn’t come around frequently. How many times does June 13 fall on a Monday? It did the year those poor girl scouts were killed at Camp Scott. That’s a case that needs more looking into. At one point during the pretrial, it was stated that the note Michelle Hoffman had found months before had a warning that 4 girl scouts would die. Another time it was repeated in court that the note said “3 girl scouts” will die. There is much that needs clarifying with this tragic case. If the note actually said “4 girl scouts” it was already implying a tent killing since 4 girls were billeted per tent. The more one looks into it the less it sounds like this was a spontaneous attack.
In any case, not to dwell on the macabre here, but the new Black Dahlia page is up, and it will be augmented with more. Also, the entire Jack the Ripper section is restored, though the pictures are not yet in. The profile of Jack the Ripper is not linked except on the home page of the section. Still working on it.
June 10, 2016
I’m trying to get the Jack the Ripper section back up and working. As always I need a link myself to go in and take a look. So you get a sneak peak here while I check out and start tailoring the introduction page. I guess I should not have taken down my other site. This really gripes my cookies to do all this over again.

I got up the Composite Page for EAR/ONS, as I go along and revamp the Q Files here. I need a link to edit it, so you can all get a preview here. Some things still need to be looked into.
June 3, 2016
I will soon have up the composites page, but I suffered a crash and I am using a backup system for my site. But I should have it up tonight. However, I wanted to share my new gift! Marcus Wells, Canada’s premier Elton John impersonator and now artist at Marcus Wells Art, sent me a gift in the mail. It took me by surprise! It’s his way of saying thanks for my books. I’m going to use this as the picture on the About me page soon.
June 1, 2016
Well, as you know I withheld putting composites of EAR on my site (except for the Maggiore Double Murder), and now that I am doing the new pages and uploading the new style I just realized that I took a source as accurate without double checking. I knew better. The composite below, attributed by Lt. Richard Shelby (Hunting a Psychopath) to the Ripon Court Shooter, cannot possibly be of him. It is not redacted and the date confirms it was completed on February 11, 1977, almost a week before the shooting. Since the other composite popularly attributed to being based on Rod Miller’s account is redacted, I really can’t be sure anymore if it is. Shelby says that the Ripon Court Shooter was dressed in a watch cap and blue wind breaker, but such a composite dates to May supposedly, and is also redacted. I’ll have to straighten out Panic! now. Fortunately I discovered this before starting the “Composite” page.

For the first time I think we gaze into the eyes of The ZODIAC. I finally was able to obtain a clear picture of the man I have sought for 6 years. I have one more hurdle to obtain handwriting. Hopefully, it shall be soon. The sense of triumph is mixed with frustration, as I thought I would close the EAR/ONS case by this time, but it has proven difficult stalking that ultimate stalker. Nevertheless, this lead in the ‘Zodiac’ Killer case has come at the perfect time.
As is my custom, I am taking a break after finishing the first draft of HorrorScope in order to clear my head before I start refining it and editing it. As many of you know, in the interim I am finally standardizing the entire Q site.
So the above being said, welcome to the new update page for all topics that I investigate and for any recent update!
