I returned to the book. There was a gap after Mark Finch's last entry. Then, in July of '79 the new owner of the house, Jim Foster, must've discovered the journal, for he began documenting his life in it.
The first entry by Foster read:
"I can't believe what I've stumbled upon. The previous owner of this house was a murderer. I've just viewed the films he made of his murders. I found this journal and the knife he used. I need to go to the police, but I don't want my wife and daughter to know what happened here."

Quite right Jim, they would worry and pressurise you to move pdq.... on the other hand, knowing what I know now, moving out might be a very smart idea!
