Now to the case you may remember as the "Southside Serial Rapist."
Randy Comeaux, who was convicted of raping 6 women in the 1980s and 90s will once again face a judge this month.
It's going to be a video tele-conference and in that conversation Comeaux will plead his case for the judge to release 30 items that were taken from Comeaux's house as evidence.
Back when Comeaux was first suspected in the rapes police went to his home with a search warrant-- they bagged and tagged many items. Now Comeaux wants some of the objects back 30 knick-knacks in total.
They range from jewelry, a highschool yearbook, rosary beads and one of the more bizarre requests, a book Comeaux was reading entitled Men Who Rape.
KATC spoke with someone from Comeaux's family, that person tells us he may have been reading the book to try to help himself...an attempt to stop doing what he was doing. The person says many of the items have sentimental value, but it will be up to the judge if Comeaux gets those things back.
Comeaux remains in the Wade Correctional Center in Homer serving a life sentence.
The telephone conference is set for the 28th of this month.
