Green River Killer case comes to TV


With his career in politics and policing, one might think Dave Reichert would be eager for the extra limelight from an upcoming movie based on his book, "Chasing the Devil: My Twenty-Year Quest to Capture the Green River Killer."

But days before the film's TV debut Sunday night, the congressman appeared ambivalent.

A Republican congressman representing Washington's 8th District, Reichert is probably best known as the King County sheriff who oversaw the arrest of serial killer Gary Ridgway in 2001.

Such a feat was ready-made for Hollywood, especially when paired with Reichert's Boy Scout persona, humble beginnings and oft-told cop heroics. (His famed movie-star-like attributes -- big biceps, nice hair -- didn't hurt either.)
