I’ve seen some comments asking if “Helen Remus” was an actual victim of The Green River Killer and she was not. This is from an article discussing the Made For TV movie about the case.
But rather than just telling a cat-and-monstrous-mouse tale, the TV movie story line — this being on a network geared toward women — opts to fictionalize one of the Green River Killer victims. A young woman named Helen (Hel for short; get it?) grows up miserably in a trailer park, sexually abused by her mother’s boyfriend. She runs away and winds up as a prostitute on the Sea-Tac strip. And even after she’s killed she continues to narrate the movie, talking long about destiny.
