The Doodler is an unidentified serial killer who is believed to be responsible for between six and sixteen murders and three assaults of men in San Francisco, California, between January 1974 and September 1975.

The nickname was given due to the perpetrator’s habit of sketching his victims before stabbing them to death. He reportedly met his victims at gay nightclubs, bars and restaurants.

The suspect was described as a Black man between the ages of 19 and 25 years of age. He was reportedly about six feet tall with a slender build, and several of his victims were stabbed in the front and back of their bodies in similar locations.

All of the victims were also white males. The police theorized that the victims had all died after meeting with the suspect near the locations where their bodies were recovered.

Police questioned a young man as a murder suspect in the Doodler case, but could not proceed with criminal charges due to the three surviving victims not wanting to “out” themselves by testifying against him in court.

According to reports, among the stabbing survivors were a “well-known entertainer” and a diplomat. The suspect cooperated with the police during his interview but he never admitted guilt for the murders and attacks.

Officers stated they strongly believed that the man in question was responsible for the crimes, but he was never tried or convicted because of the three survivors’ refusal to appear in court. To date, the suspect has never been named publicly or apprehended; very little information is available to the public about the crimes.

The case is currently open and ongoing in the San Francisco Police Department. Recent successes using DNA technology developed in the decades since the crimes have led the police to re-examine the evidence in the case.

In February 2019, police offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the perpetrator, and also released a revised sketch showing what he could look like four decades later.

They later announced that they would consider forensic genetic genealogy, which identified a suspect in the Golden State Killer murders.
