Remember that “expert” on handwriting analysis that determined specifically that the man who killed the Amish girls was:
a sexually obsessed, sexually repressed man with obsessive-compulsive disorder and long-standing anger and resentment.
Well, apparently she is the ONLY local handwriting expert because KDKA turned to her to take a look at the threatening letters received at various synagogues throughout the area.
She says about these letters:
“This person thinks they’re disguising their handwriting by printing,” said handwriting expert Michelle Dresbold.
No shit, Sherlock!?
“There are a few signs that show that the person’s not stable. For example, the person makes their “y” a little bit like a devil’s fork.”
As for the handwriting expert, she says there’s no doubt the letters all come from the same person and it is difficult to tell from just the envelopes how dangerous or serious the writer might be.
Yet she could tell the Amish killer was “sexually obsessed, sexually repressed man with obsessive-compulsive disorder and long-standing anger and resentment.” Not short-standing anger but LONG-standing anger. This is because she made her analysis after the shooting happened and his story unfolded.
When one letter crosses into another and it makes an “x”, it means the person is thinking about death.
Heh. That’s pretty funny actually that if one of my letters crosses into another one, it doesn’t mean I’m in a hurry, it means I’m thinking about death.
If you handed me these envelopes, told me they were sent containing threatening letters to synagogues, I could totally pretend I was a handwriting expert by assuming that the guy is unstable, thinking about death, and immature. Not that hard.
