This killer wants fame and recognition. That's why he dumped the body at the Hillside Strangler's location. So at this point, we will release no information about him. He isn't going to get the attention he craves. He doesn't deserve it. From this point forward, no more limelight, or accolades, no more fear. Nobody cares about this killer.
