Also, Weir could have killed multiple people without being a "multiple
murderer". The young boy and the man who was locked in the freezer could
both easily have been accidents, and I don't know if he did kill the
librarian; even if he did, that might conceivably not have been murder if
she'd had a weapon--I don't remember the details well, and I'm sure many of
them are well-hidden.
