Capt. Ed, Rusty, Hot Air and others are trying to figure out what "Ismail AX" (supposedly scribbled on the V tech killer's arm) means. I think it was mis-read by the local police. I think it was supposed to be Ismail YK who is a Turkish singer.
You've never heard of him? He's got almost 6,000 hits on a YouTube Search and over 1 million on google.
I don't get the connection to the killer, but I'll throw it out there. I think we might be barking up the wrong tree.
