In a series of interviews with KOMO-TV in Seattle, Ridgway said he hopes to help find his victims' bodies. The interviews were his first with the news media since he pleaded guilty to killing 48 runaways and prostitutes in the Seattle area and was sentenced to life with no possibility of parole a decade ago.
His plea agreement spared him the death penalty. Ridgway now says he wishes he had been allowed to provide more help to investigators looking for his victims' bodies.
"If I could do it all over again, I would say I want to get out at every single site," he told KOMO.
Charlie Harger, the KOMO reporter who interviewed Ridgway, said he got in touch with him through Rob Fitzgerald, a former investigator with the U.S. Air Force who has made finding the bodies of Ridgway victims his mission. Fitzgerald said Ridgway guides him to potential locations using photographs and Fitzgerald then carries out the search with volunteers and a bloodhound trained to detect bodies.
Fitzgerald says Ridgway now calls him several times a week.
