True crime enthusiasts have a deep appreciation for the detectives, who against all odds secure justice for victims and their families. And if you’re a chiseled, dashingly handsome detective who had a hand in capturing The Golden State Killer, all the better. Which is to say, murderinos have been going gaga over the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office investigator Paul Holes, in part because My Favorite Murder co-hosts Karen Kilgarriff and Georgia Hardstark sang his praises and commended his crush-worthiness on their popular podcast.

This sparked the awkwardly named hashtag #HotForHoles, in which admirers share photos, fan art, and memes of this truly hunky 50-year-old detective.

Not long after the arrest of Golden State Killer suspect Joseph James DeAngelo, Holes joined Twitter. And being far from freaked out by the hashtag that bears his name and our collective lust, he tweeted:

Though new to Twitter and internet fame, it was no time before he was multi-tasking like a pro, pushing Twitter to verify his account with a thirst tweet.

Holes has also been reaching out to his 12 thousand plus followers to seek witnesses for other unsolved cases. Plus, he’s been sweetly responsive to fans, and revealed his awareness of My Favorite Murder’s fandom and most famous catchphrase.

But my fellow murderinos, Holes took things up a notch last night when he suggestively tweeted at Kilgariff. Here’s the exchange that had us gasping in glee and jealousy. It began with the podcaster/comedienne tweeting while on My Favorite Murder’s European tour, and a cheeky response from a pun-loving fan account.


Sometimes Twitter is good.
