David George Reichert was born in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, the oldest of seven children and grandson of the town marshal.
Reichert was a leading member of the Green River Task Force, which was formed to track down the so-called "Green River Killer." He and partner Robert Keppel extensively interviewed Ted Bundy from 1984 until Bundy's execution in 1989, in order to develop a psychological profile of the killer.
October 25, 2005: Dave Reichert is pushing for expanding the DNA database, by requiring everyone arrested or detained by the police to have DNA samples taken for a national DNA database.
Reichert personally spoke with members of each victim's family before formal charges were filed against Ridgway, seeking their approval of plans to accept Ridgway's confession to 48 murders in return for guaranteeing him life in prison without parole.
Reichert also says it was extremely discouraging for the news media to so often suggest the investigators were "inept" for not stopping the wave of murders earlier.
Reichert doesn't delve deeply into the mind of Ridgway for his motives and one gets the impression he's not keen on authors who let egomaniacal serial killers go on and on about their murders.
