Who is the Scranton Strangler?

by Kevin Crossman

There's been a lot of speculation about the Scranton Strangler, a plotline that seemed like a throwaway joke back on "The Delivery" but has been mentioned repeatedly in subsequent episodes. One might think that since they have mentioned the strangler frequently we will eventually learn the identity. Of course, the very topic of the strangler is odd; The Office is known for uncomfortable and awkward humor but serial killing is quite a bit of a darker shade of gray don't you think?

On TWSS #94, Matt and I speculated on who we think the strangler might be, if the killer is a character we know from the show. Matt chose Gabe, which makes a lot of sense. The new Sabre character appeared in Scranton at about the same time as the killer and his "odd" personality would lend itself to serial killer theories. On the other hand, I chose Toby. A beloved (by some) and longtime character, Toby would be a unexpected choice. But, something tells me that the whimpy Toby has a dark and violent side.

So, what do you think? Who do you think the Scranton Strangler is? What do you think of even the very topic of a serial killer on a comedy show?
