Question: So the psychiatrist (SPOILER!) --

-- learned the identity of the killer when he saw the name scrawled on the wall of the bathroom.

So why didn't he pick up the phone and immediatley phone David Hemmings?

Or better yet, why didn't he phone the police?


I don't think he did, as Amanda Righetti, said victim didn't know the killer before. The note on the bathroom wall was simply stating that the killer is a woman.
