People have a false sense of safety if they have another person with them.

Ugh r39, don't be stupid. The statistics for violence against children has grown exponentially over the decades. Years ago, kids could walk around alone and, for the most part, return home unharmed. Not saying crime didn't happen, but the nature of crime (sadistic, irrational violence) against children has definitely escalated.

A couple of years ago, a 4 year old in my building wandered off as his mother chatted with a neighbor. I'd say within about 3 minute, he was approached and led away by a casual acquaintance of his parents. Thank goodness passersby stopped him.

R37, the speculation is that it is from Libby's phone and they retrieved it from "the cloud." It's very creepy to think that she saw this guy walking toward them and felt threatened enough to take a picture of him; it does look like it was taken in haste. There's going to be a police press conference tomorrow (Tuesday) where more details of the crime will be revealed.

How terrible! This is the first I have heard about it. I am very suspicious of the photo of the "strange man", how do they know one of the girls took the photo? Couldn't the killer have used the phone to take the mystery man's photo in order to take the heat off of himself? It could just be some random guy that was walking by and had nothing to do with the girls' murder.

They still aren't revealing very much but they did confirm that the picture of the suspect was from LIbby's phone. They also played a short audio clip of a man's voice saying "Down the hill." They said there's even more on her phone, including video footage, but they're not willing to disclose it at this time. And that was it. They took questions but answered very few and said nothing other than to reiterate the information they'd given out earlier.

Those poor girls. I couldn't even sleep well knowing the news conference would be happening today... linked below is the audio released from Liberty's phone, on the Indiana police web site. Very clearly you can hear a man say "Get down the hill" -- I hope they catch this guy, but I'm afraid the case will grow cold. Although there seems to be plenty the police isn't revealing to the public and you have to wonder if she recorded the whole attack.

R57, its much better in the clip they posted online. Couldn't hear anything from the news conference sound. Authorities were very emotional, so I am guessing the murder scene was gruesome. Plenty of unknown in this case. What strikes me is that they were dropped off at 1:30, last pic of Abby was 2:07, then shortly after it seems the crime took place. So hurried.. if it was a chance encounter. And while this area is isolated there WERE other people walking around - its a historic bridge/trial. Guy is just so bold. Unfortunately they called off the search at midnight as well. I just hope that more details are revealed, or if not, they catch someone soon. He could be anywhere by now.

by Anonymousreply 5902/22/2017

Is it possible that the killer tracked them down via their Snapchat activity? Their pictures/video and descriptions could have alerted him that two girls were alone in a remote area he's familiar with. I'm assuming it works like Twitter -- sent out publicly unless the account is set to private.

I wonder, R60. Social media could be involved, then they'd have a great trail on this guy, but something tells me they don't. I'm in my 30's and don't even know how Snapchat works. I thought it was only set to private and among selected friends.

It sounds like one of the girls deliberately left her phone on during the attack. I'd bet the police have more on the guy than we know about, but it's a transient person or someone otherwise hard to identify because he's not from that town.

What good would being vigilant have done in this situation, r84? Should they have turned around and left in the car again just because there was a single, not visibly armed or dangerous man in the vicinity? They'd be shut-ins if they did that.

I assume he did have some kind of weapon, because I doubt that a 13- or 14-year-old girl who had the presence of mind to take pictures and record the situation with her phone would follow menacing instructions from a random unarmed stranger.

Possibly, but the way this guy is dressed I think almost anyone would have called LE if they had seen him regardless of his race. He looks homeless and is hiding his face. They would have at the very least not dropped the girls off at that time.

I doubt they saw him. He was probably hidden. I would bet anything he was waiting at the beginning of the trail for someone to come along so he could commit the crime.

by Anonymousreply 8702/23/2017

Since that area is likely overwhelmingly white demographically, a black hiker would have qualified as an unexpected sight, so you are probably right that the girls would -- rightly or wrongly -- have been more careful around him.

But I don't think it's justified to expect two girls to drop their plans for a hike just because they see a single, unarmed man near a known hiking trail. Suggesting that they should have run puts a totally undue burden on the victims.

by Anonymousreply 8802/23/2017

the age of those girls and their inexperience of life would not have made them wary until this man approached them which would have been too late for them to run

by Anonymousreply 8902/23/2017

I'm not blaming the victims. Good lord, that's a vile accusation. You really want to derail the discussion with that?

I'm saying that most women, if they were about to drop off two girls at a remote hiking trail and saw a guy loitering around, would be wary, regardless of what the guy's race was and even if they didn't see a weapon. Because they weren't wary AND because it was about 40 minutes between being dropped off and the last photo AND because no one has said that a man was seen when the girls were dropped off, I suspect that he was either not right there or not visible to anyone.

by Anonymousreply 9002/23/2017

R89, most 13-year-old girls have had plenty of experience with creepers, and many have had discussions with teachers, family and friends about being aware of strangers and of their surroundings.

That's why Libby turned on her phone and recorded the guy as soon as she saw he was acting suspiciously. She very clearly recognized suspicious behavior. If she or Abigail or the older sister who dropped them off had seen anything like that when they first arrived at the trail, they wouldn't have gotten out of the car.

by Anonymousreply 9102/23/2017

r9113 year old girls may have experience with creepers in larger areas of the country. Where I live most 13 yr old girls would not have had this kind of experience. Having discussions and actual encounters are different. Once this man was close or encountered them is when I'm sure they became suspicious & why she turned on the phone. But just seeing the man probably didn't make them worried.

It took me over 20 years to convince my friends where I live that they shouldn't be out at night walking alone. They finally got the message a few years ago but these were grown women who just had no worry about any danger.

There's a photo of the man taken from behind him as he's walking away, isn't there? That's what this photo seems to be, at any rate.

Okay, so you've never known any woman who knew by the age of 13 that you had to be careful of strangers. That's just super... but it's not the normal experience for kids, let alone for girls. Not even close. The idea that girls only get hassled in "larger areas of the country" (which means, what, cities?) is not statistically true.

I used to go places like that, alone and with friends, back when in my early teens. But I'm a guy, and should be able to handle myself.

[97] here again. On the other hand, that was over 50 years ago, when young kids wandering off wasn't anything to worry about. And Halloween was an orgy of candy-gathering from strangers. I was wandering off alone in the woods even when I was 4 or so.

But, in these days, it strikes me as weird that anyone would let 2 young girls to wander around alone like that. In SoCal, a woman out jogging alone in the hills was attacked, and partially eaten, by a mountain lion. Frankly, a lot of women think they can do pretty much as they please, without any problem, to their eventual detriment. Men out alone, are more likely to be viewed as victimizers than victims.

by Anonymousreply 9802/23/2017

Although it's possible it was someone they knew and who followed them on snapchat, seeing that they were on the trail alone, I think it's highly unlikely. I think it's a case of the poor girls being at the wrong place, at the wrong time and coming across a bold predator. They clearly didn't know the guy, the snapshot is just too rough and obviously taken in a panic. She clearly knew something was off, and sent the pictures out on snapchat because it's the quickest avenue to reach everyone who happens to follow you with one click, rather than sending out a mass text or something like that. I really hope someone can identify this guy, although I'm sure above posters got it right saying the police probably know a lot more than they're letting on due to more evidence on her phone, likely some horrible stuff that is just not appropriate for the public, let alone their poor families to know right now.

It's not like they were out hiking in the mountains on an overnight expedition or miles out of the trailhead. They were relatively close to civilization. I don't think it's out of the norm for kids to go on a day hike either. Especially if they are with a friend and they both had phones.

This seems like a crime of opportunity. Ask any woman, the overwhelming majority will have a story to tell about a close call. Adbuction attempts are much higher than statistics would reveal. Teenage girls are the most likely to be violently victimized.

It's likely this man is a transient. He sees two young girls alone and he follows them until his chance to force them out of site from the trail.

I hope they catch this fucker. Has web sleuths dug up any missing girls from the relative same area? It's doubtful this was his "first time" homocide.

How did he pretend to be a teenager, R103? Maybe they had passed other people on the trail and thought nothing of just passing by another stranger, and didn't realize until too late that he had malevolent plans. The bridge is a part of the trail, no one needed to be lured onto it.

It does seem odd that a man that just happened to be hanging by a hiking trail/bridge in broad daylight sees two teenage girls and suddenly goes from transient or local guy on a walk to a double murderer of two girls. That's a big jump for someone to make morally/spontaneously.

Either he's done this before and is a serial predator who haunts remote areas (waiting all day I guess for someone vulnerable to appear so he can victimize them?), or he was stalking one or both girls (perhaps via social media) waiting for a time when they were *really alone*.

In this day and age of cell phones and technology everywhere, it was especially brazen of him to attack *2* girls and not be concerned about either one of them calling the police or a relative for help before he was finished. I wonder what the profile is on the type of person that would commit this type of crime in broad daylight?

To add, these girls were young and probably in shock as soon as the situation happened. I think any of us when faced with violence would be in shock. And there is probably a tiny part of you that thinks, maybe the attacker will listen to my pleas and let me go.

I pulled my Indiana crime statistics manual and the county where Delphi is located has an extremely low crime rate it is not surprising that the parents in Delphi would let the girls go. Dephi isn't even near a well-traveled highway. I bet a lot of kids met along that trail to hang out

Not necessarily, people tend to assume these type of crimes are committed by "others" and draw a blank when confronted with the truth. Don't know for sure how the leads will pan out, but I won't bat an eye if the attacker turns out to be a close friend or relative of the family, and then it comes out that this individual was a sex offender who often babysat for one of the girls.

Three thoughts:

1) he had to be acting oddly or the girl who recorded wouldn't have

2) I bet he had one of the girls under physical control (even just by the arm) to force the other to co operate ... he was controlling them both during the 'down the hill' recording

3) what is odd to me is that he didn't take their phones or think they had phones. So that, to me, puts him in a certain age group... so 45 + because thinking about a phone and its recording capabilities wasn't automatic. A younger person covering their tracks would not have forgotten to get their phones.

I can't think of any other case where this has been done! I'm wondering if the DNA matched the DNA collected in other rape/murder cases around the country but the identity of the man is unknown. They are really pulling out all the stops to get this guy, I think they know he has killed many times before and will kill again. They really need to release ALL of the video footage of him, especially of him walking and his mannerisms etc because people are more likely to recognize that than just that grainy still image. I cannot understand why they haven't done that yet.

The owner of the property where the girls were found said they had to have walked to the place where the bodies were located. There is no way he could have carried them down the hill and through the heavy plant growth.

And he had to have had some kind of weapon - two 13 year old girls would have been impossible to handle for one person if both were struggling to get away.

I have not heard of any mutilation of the bodies - and this is the lead story on every newscast here in Indiana. The police are playing it very close to the vest - so I hope they are just building a strong case.

Okay, they hauled a guy out of the Chrysler KTP plant in Kokomo today for questioning. He was convicted of the attempted rape of an eleven-year-old girl back in 1988. I know his name but can't say until I'm sure it's him. And I'm not sure it's him at all, because after his questioning, he went on Facebook and said that he had given a DNA sample and that everyone else should, too! Pretty brazen thing to do if he's guilty.

I think if you just google the girls' names and "Chrysler KTP Kokomo" it would probably come up, because crime sites on the internet are going crazy.

by Anonymousreply 14302/28/2017

R143. He was questioned and released. Respectfully, I don't think it would be fair to post his name or picture. I'd still be interested in hearing your stories. Are you local? I live 30 minutes from Delphi and have heard a few things as well; some more credible than others.

The police seem to be seriously frustrated with the amount of time they are spending dealing with rumors and speculation on social media (not to mention complaints from guys who's names and faces have been posted.) Three local news sites had articles/interviews with LE today encouraging people to ease up. Amateur detectives are clogging up the tip phone lines and posting names and photos of innocent men. In this article, the sheriff encourages people to call the tip line if they have "legitimate" information and to contact an attorney if they feel they've been libeled. I'm guessing LE are sick of dealing with the Jessica Fletcher wannabes from websleuthes and Reddit calling in with their theories and "tips." I love gossip as much as the next person but it should be confined to gossip sites like DL rather than bothering the police.

Well R144 my take on it is that LE have nobody to blame but themselves. They release a blurry, grainy still image of a man who could be any midwestern male age 20-55. They did not release any additional data whatsoever as what they think his approximate age, weight, height, etc. is. So yeah, you have millions of scared people looking at every man who wears baggy jeans, hoodie, and navy jacket. Which is just about every man in flyover country. They have VIDEO of this man walking, they need to release a video of him walking, even if it is only a few short seconds, because he is not going to be identified by the photo alone, it could be anyone...but someone might recognize his walk or something about him distinctive to him.

So yeah, people are freaking out and it is becoming a huge witch hunt. I heard that threats have been made to the property owner where the girls were found. It's out of control, LE needs to release more information NOW. Not only because it's out of control with the finger-pointing but because they still have nobody in custody! What are they waiting for, him to kill again? They have the nation's attention right now, so give us some more information right now that we can use to help identify this guy.

That's why I didn't say his name, r144. It wouldn't be right. But he's really not helping himself by engaging amateur sleuths on Facebook and calling them "assholes." He should just STFU.

No, I'm not local, and I don't know anything else. And I agree that they need to release more or they're just not going to catch this guy.

They're not releasing whole video clips and audio and more pictures for a reason. Probably because what they have is evidence and they don't want to taint a potential jury pool, but also very probably because what's on the footage is disturbing.

And as someone who has lived in the Midwest most of my life, I disagree with the idea that this looks like every guy around here. The two photos indicate he was lumbering, not walking straight, first of all. Second, no one has three coats zipped up like that unless it's incredibly cold, though there are some homeless folks who wear their jackets in that manner. Putting his hands in the brown hoodie pockets with a zipped-up blue windbreaker over that is DEFINITELY not something I see everyday.

Yes R163.

Some interesting developments/gossip. Locals say that Libby's older sister was the one who dropped the girls off at the park, at about 1:00pm. Public searches reveal that this family it is quite dysfunctional, Libby's father is or was in prison for dealing meth. Libby lived with her maternal grandfather (who has a few battery on his record) and step-grandmother since age 3. I wondered from the beginning if the connection between the murdered girls and their killer was the sister that dropped them off. Not necessarily that she was purposely involved, just maybe told the wrong people they were going to be there that day. After the girls were found murdered, a girl came forward shortly after and told police she and another friend had been there that day around the same time on the trails and near the bridge but did not see A&L or the suspect. Oh, except they did see strange man "all dressed in black". Someone located this girl's snapchat, and she has a pic of the same bridge the murdered girls were on, taken after but within about 30 minutes of when the girls were last know to be on the bridge. Interesting. Oh, and it was discovered that this girl is good friends with Libby's sister! I don't know what to make of all that but I think some people who were close to at least one of the victims might know more about what happened to those girls.

Local police have released NO information on the condition of the bodies when they were found. People who keep coming here to say they "heard" from "somebody" that they were mutilated cannot know what they are talking about.

This usually comes from the fact that local authorities did not immediately identify the two bodies as the missing girls - leading some to believe that they were not recognizable. None of this has been confirmed or denied by the people at the head of the investigation.

I think, but am not sure, that the two other girls murdered an hour away happened in 2012, but it was very similar in that the girls were best friends, of the same age, and they both looked similar to each other, like Libby and Abby.

Their names were Lyric and Elizabeth and they were found in similar circumstances, found murdered at Seven Bridges Wildlife Park, in Iowa.

There was speculation on Websleuths that there is a manufacturing plant close to the place in Iowa, and another branch of the same company in Indiana, and they are wondering if the man might be a worker who may have worked or been familiar with both places. Apparently, some people think that the man is wearing elastic bands around the edge of his pants that are worn to keep protective booties on in the factory.

The story of the two cousins that were murdered in 2012 near the area where these two were murdered is eerily similar. They were last seen between 12:30 and 1pm. These girls were last seen around 1pm and the last Snapchat was around 2pm. This guy doesn't look homeless- he dresses like a guy that lives in a rural area in the Midwest. Seems like the murderer of all four of these girls might have been on a lunch break. Hopefully, LE is canvassing the local businesses to see if someone was late returning from lunch. But I don't have much faith in Indiana LE from following the Davey Blackburn case.

"Lyric R. Cook, 10, and her cousin, Elizabeth Collins, 8, were reported missing to the Evansdale Police Department in Evansdale, Iowa, on Friday, July 13, 2012.

The girls were seen at about 12:23 p.m. July 13 on Brovan Boulevard in Evansdale, and then spotted between 12:30 and 1 p.m. on Gilbert Drive not far from Meyers Lake, a popular fishing and recreation area in the northeastern Iowa city of about 4,700 residents."

Oh fuck off back to Webseluths R170. That thread nannying doesn't fly here on DL! The backgrounds of the victims' families can often be clues as to what happened, especially if the victims are children. Libby's family is something else...Grandpa is leaving no stone unturned as far as cashing in on this tragedy goes. Just four days after the girls' bodies were found, Grandpa had a ball at a memorial biker ride, which he described the same day as "AWESOME!". The donations from that ride were around $60k, which he split with Abby's mother, so he got about 30k. I agree, that's pretty awesome! Too bad the little girl is still dead and no justice for her. There is of course a GoFundMe for Libby's family for "expenses", they are asking 10k and are already over 8k. There is also at least one bank account set up for people to donate to Libby's family, and several other businesses and organizations collecting money for them. They have also been given money directly. The 30k should have been more than enough to cover any funeral expenses. What other "expenses" do they need money for? Sorry but I really hate when people cash in on another's misfortune, especially their own family members.

And another day that the perp is still roaming free. Is he really that smart, or just really lucky?

by Anonymousreply 17803/02/2017

Here's my theory:

It's the same guy that killed the two girls in 2012. He was transferred to the manufacturing plant near Delphi from the one near Evansdale (where the two girls were murdered in 2012). He has a full time job and a family (hence, he has to murder during the day, during his lunch break). He goes to areas that he knows young girls will be, and has to take 2 girls, as girls don't go to these places by themselves. He picks areas like near a lake or hiking trail because he can take the girls off the main trail and rape/kill them. He used a gun to force them to go with him.

I don't think the Chrysler guy had anything to do with it.

The girls were dropped off at the park at about 1-1:30pm, they were supposed to be picked up between 3-3:30 pm. They were alive on the bridge at 2:07 pm. So whatever happened to them, happened between 2:07 and 3:30-ish. That is NOT a lot of time! A very narrow window for when this crime would have occurred (unless he took them elsewhere and then brought them back and dumped them but I think that is unlikely). I really, really think that someone knew they were going to be there, that they would be alone, and for how long. If they were adults, I would think this was a "hit".

There's also an element of thinking familiar places are safe.

When that young NYC woman was murdered in a swampy area near her home recently, I looked at the photos and thought the place looked spooky and not somewhere I would have felt safe alone, but later reports said she and her father ran there frequently. She had probably not seen anything scary before then, so she thought she was safe.

A woman co-worker got raped a few years ago running on a biking/running trail where she felt safe because there are always people around, but the guy who raped her (and several other women before he got caught) was enough of a predator to hide and wait for the right time.

Seems both the past murdered little girls (Lyric & Elizabeth) & these recent 2 had parents involved in meth trade - is the entire flyover working in meth so it's just a coincidence? Or else maybe there's an organized meth cartel that kills children over their parents' debts.

I think that the poor quality of the image is distorting the man's appearance. His posture/stance can't be judged from this image because he was walking across an old, hazardous bridge with rotting and missing planks so he was likely walking "cautiously".

If this man is a local who has a job or even a roommate or neighbors, then someone would know who it is. Someone would have said, "Hey, that's Billy down the street from us", or "Hey, that's Keith's and Shelly's good for nothing unemployed son who moved back here after his divorce". Everyone knows everyone in towns that are this small.

This may be a guy from out of state, who gets the urge to drive to wherever, and survey areas such as this one, until he finds a victim or victims to kill. Perhaps he only strikes out every 3 to 10 years. And it would be really easy to determine where someone is if you are on their Snapchat.

by Anonymousreply 23003/02/2017

R170 and R171. It is true that LE hasn't confirmed condition of the bodies. Please remember how small this area is; people ALL know each other including the police. My father lives 30 minutes away and has a good friend who is retired from the Delphi police force. He was called in to help with the search for the bodies. He told my father (in a face to face conversation) that the girl's bodies were terribly "mutilated" (his word), sexually assulted and throats slit. He also said they have most of the attack on one of the girl's phone. I wasn't clear if he meant the phone itself or the iCloud and if it was video, audio or both. He said even the older veteran cops were shaken to the core especially by the recording. Finally, he said they really thought the guy they arrested (and later released) at the factory in Kokomo was the one they were looking for. Turns out, he was out of state with his family and was able to present solid proof. He also voluntarily gave them DNA. I have no idea what if anything came from said DNA but they no longer think he's a suspect. There were open caskets at the funeral but both girls had scarfs wrapped around their neck. R219. I believe the FBI is involved largely due to the wealth of information on the phone (iCloud?) and are better able to analyze it than the state police (more advanced techniques, experience, etc.) The brutal nature of the killing and the sexual assaults on minors may also be a factor. The state police are still doing most of the actual investigation.

by Anonymousreply 23103/02/2017

Thanks for posting R231. Do you happen to know if both girls were sexually assaulted or just one? And was there any sign that one or both of the girls were bound/gagged? Because I'm just wondering how he managed to keep both girls under one girl didn't run while he was assaulting the other, unless they were restrained or there were 2 or more attackers. And do they have DNA from the murderer do you know?

It was a clear, crisp day the day that this all happened, I imagine voices would carry. There were other people at the park that day. If there was evidence on the audio recording, such as screaming or crying or whatever, I can't believe nobody saw or at least heard something. I really hope he/they are caught soon.

From a Reddit thread:

[quote]Actually recent. There were these two girls a few towns from me walking on a hiking trail that went missing. Long story short, they found them dead a day later, really fucked up details to the crime. Anyway, one of the girls managed to snap a single blurry picture of someone right before it happened, and then a few second audio clip of a stoic voice saying, "down the hill." It's not creepy in the Blair Witch sense most found footage stuff is going to be, but that shit is haunting. Even more so for me given a guy they brought in for questioning lives down the street from me, and after hearing about his past I think he did it. But when word spread about them taking him in, the police moved really quickly to issue a press release saying no arrests had been made, and loose word is that they don't have anywhere near the evidence to convict.

by Anonymousreply 23303/03/2017

R231, is it not usual and customary to keep details obscured from the public while an investigation of this complexity is active?

The retired LEO knows not to discuss the details of an open investigation, and the fact that you came on here to confirm or deny what amounts to heresay, is extremely unhelpful.

There are VERY specific reasons why these types of details are kept away from the public.

Muriel should delete your post. Oh, and thanks for making the FBI's job that much harder today, dumb-ass.

by Anonymousreply 23403/03/2017

r232, LE did say they have DNA and they are testing it (the quick way versus the long, drawn out process). They didn't say how they got the DNA (cup, body fluids, etc).

r234, I don't understand why some of this info should be kept away from the public? Most people thought the suspect used a gun to get the girls to go where he wanted. From r231 's description, he used a knife. LE should be able to say what type of knife it was and this might help link the suspect, especially if it's a unique knife (remember when the police told the public the specific type of cigarette butt that was left at the crime scene of those girls that were murdered in Napa, CA and it triggered the lone survivor to tell the police who she knew a guy that smoked those cigarettes. Turned out to be the killer).

by Anonymousreply 23503/03/2017

I don't believe R231 for a second. After being told by multiple people on this thread that they are probably harming the investigation, they come back with even more gruesome details to make things worse -- and they know enough to change their IP to avoid being ignored.

Any new developments regarding this? I checked the news feed, and haven't seen any updates.

I usually am pretty removed from most of these things. I have taught myself to be, because if not, I wouldn't want to get out of bed every morning. However, this one right here has slowly seeped under my skin.

I've spent a few minutes here and there, looking at photographs of these two kids. Early teens, yes, but they may as well have been nine year olds. They were still interested in playing in nature, and exploring their surroundings, rather than spending time cooped up in their rooms, on social media 24/7, like many teens currently. And they still looked like little girls. Yes, puberty was obviously happening, but these girls just looked like kids.

I can only imagine how these LEOs must feel in regards to this case. This is the type of thing that one does not shake off very easily. Personally, I think that I would be obsessed with finding the fucking monster who did this.

I believe that he will be caught. It took months before they nabbed the Karina Veterano killer, but he was nabbed.

The only way this guy will not be caught is if he leaves the country, or lives without stepping foot outside his home for the next ten years, or if he kills himself.

As long as there are available funds and human resources available for this case, this mother fucker will be found.

My biggest fear is that some abused wife or parent knows who this guy is. If so, this person must be terrified because this man will kill them before they get a chance to go to the authorities, if he hasn't done so already.

I just spent 45 minutes with my psychic friend and it was beyond scary. I talked to her on the phone and at one point said "Did one of them fight back?" and we both heard a young girl say "Yep". My friend said it was the older one. She has A LOT to say so here we go: Killer has 2 dogs - one is a husky and the other a basset hound type dog with a white face and tan body. He sits in the dark and watches TV (he sits close to the TV) and pets the dogs and has watched the news about this case while petting these dogs, especially the husky. He takes them off leash a lot Said he has an injury to his right leg- possibly from a burn. It is a significant injury and his right leg is skinnier and atrophied. There's a military connection- most likely he was in the military or tried out for the military His face was in disguise in the pic- especially his nose. She kept saying his nose is not right. Look at the NOSE. He's a loner but does have family. He was rejected by women and the date has a significance He has killed in the past- 2 young girls, one was a light-haired girl on a bike and another girl that is wearing a bustier- she couldn't tell if the bustier girl was a prostitute or just a15 year old playing dress up. He's older than 30's and has a connection to Oklahoma. He was at a restaurant in the Delphi area and was looking at maps of the area and saw the park. He doesn't live there, tho. He goes to the same bar a lot and also plays lottery -particularly scratch offs There are 3 people that are going to recognize him- one is a woman in a white uniform, most likely a nurse. He went to this location on purpose and was super excited that his plan worked. He used duct tape on the girls so they would not scream. He kept the older one alive longer- into the pitch black and possibly the next day. She fought him and there is DNA. She said the younger one panicked but the older one was calm and trying to figure a way to get them both out of it. He made them walk ahead of him and he was behind them. The girls were just there to hang out and take pictures- not to meet anybody. He saw the older one take his picture but he didn't care because he was disguised. He moved the bodies from the crime scene to try and hide evidence- he's calculated. The leg injury is NOT a birth defect- it's an injury. He was wearing tennis shoes and not hiking shoes or boots. He goes into the same store where they know him a lot. He used a gun to make the girls go where he wanted but also had a knife. They were frightened of the gun. He likes to play chess. He has a Midwestern twang and likes to hunt and fish He was spying on the girls and popped out of nowhere He had a hunter's knife and an automatic gun. He has a white license plate he's a narcissist and feels sorry for himself He has long hair Number 13 is significant He was prepared- brought gun, knife, bag, duct tape, rope He's aware of all of the media attention and will let it die down until he does it again She said that Abigail has been communicating with her and told her that this sick fuck (my words, not hers) will be caught (and it's because of these 2 girls and all of the evidence they got-they saved future lives). Said Abigail's middle name starts with a "J" ( can anybody confirm this?) The killer's name also starts with a "J". She gave me the killer's name and middle name and nickname and a street that is important. I'm going to call the LE tomorrow with the info.

by Anonymousreply 27503/09/2017

Didn't the police come out after the bodies were found, and tell people there was no danger of this being a serial killer, or predator scenario? If they did, and if R231 is nonsense, then perhaps the meth thing is what it's about. Perhaps they were in the wrong place at the wrong time and saw someone who didn't want to be seen, or a couple of someones. And they were executed.

by Anonymousreply 27703/09/2017

OK, my first theory is they were meeting another girl who lives in walking distance (say, within 3 miles) of the bridge. She'd been complaining about being abused by her father or another family member and they were going to help her and possibly help her run away. But this family member found her phone, set up the meeting as her and killed them to prevent the information getting out.

My next theory goes back to the idea upthread that the killer is a woman in disguise. It would explain the weird bulk of clothing if she was trying to hide her shape and the limp from shoes that don't fit correctly. No ideas on who she might be, though, or a motive.

I think the bridge is too far away from a big highway for it to have been any of the trucker serial killers.

It's possible he was a hitman hired to send a message to the meth biz family members.

I think it's peculiar they would include the girls' faces on the posters along with the pic of the killer, given that the girls were not abducted, not expected to ever be found alive. And if it was open casket, surely, they had the correctly identified bodies.

The big question is: how was the killer so sure he could get away with murdering two girls in a populated park in the middle of a sunny day without screams being heard or his being seen? It's not like these were long range sniper rifle hits. He tore into their bodies with a knife. It was messy. And slow. And happening in public.

I'm sorry, but some of you sound completely nuts. A woman disguised as a man? This killer is a man. JFC.

Here's the thing, I don't completely discount psychic abilities. I'm not sure at all how the whole thing works, but I do believe some people have these abilities from time to time. However, I don't believe that these abilities are usually highly developed, mostly, because we don't understand how to develop them. I will leave it at that. Scientific studies would have to be done for us to understand this, and I'm not sure how all of that would proceed. Perhaps a DL member who is a neuroscientist can chime in. I've not been aware of any of us on DL claiming this profession, but you never know.

All of the above being said, this is a case that is best solved by LEOs, including the FBI.

"The big question is: how was the killer so sure he could get away with murdering two girls in a populated park in the middle of a sunny day without screams being heard or his being seen?"

THIS is the crux of the case. The visibility of the area was extremely good...a lot of trees but not the kind of dense shrubs and thickets that you sometimes see in wooded areas. The location where the girls' bodies were found could be seen from various places especially from the bridge. And there were several people at that park that day!

He either:

1) is or was a local who knows the area like the back of his hand who acted alone, and got extremely lucky that nobody happened upon the crime in progress, or:

2) is or was a local who had help or at the very least one or two lookouts.

I think that LE should look closely at Libby's sister and her peer group. What are the odds that one of Libby's sister's best friends just so happened to be at the park at the exact time that the girls were murdered...but didn't see the girls, or the suspect. Yet she was on the bridge within 30 minutes of the last time the girls were on the bridge. ??? Really ??? I wonder if that girl was acting as a lookout for whoever did this. I hate to think that but it has happened many times in the past. Anything is possible at this point. LE needs to dissect both girls' families/friends, especially Libby's.

Abby is the one that lives a few miles down the road to the park.

R285 is correct.

My friend said that he used his phone to study the area and had mapped it out, so he knew where he could go. He had a map of the area and knew it prior to taking them down the hill. He also made them walk quite a distance. She also said the girls had walked to an area that nobody was around and he basically cornered them. He didn't know them and they didn't know him. And he's thrilled with himself.

She said that the dates are important. The 13th, especially. Not sure if it was his birthday or if it was a day related to the trauma he suffered on his leg. She also said the next day was Valentine's day, which was also important to him, as he was rejected by women a lot. She also said that the police do not want to release any more of the video or audio because it's just too horrifying.

Said he's in his 40's and has done this before and will do it again. Being that old, you wonder how many females he's harmed in the past. She said at least 2.

I respect those that do not believe in psychics and certainly don't want to try and convince people that some people. I will say I've known my friend for over 20 years and she has told me really detailed stuff about my life and she's been accurate about 95% of the time.

I mentioned earlier that I don't completely discount psychic abilities. And I will repeat that I believe that most do not know how to channel such ability properly. I myself, have had dreams that turned out to be spot on, several times throughout my life. However, I had these dreams arbitrarily, I wasn't purposefully attempting to gather information. And I have no way of proving that these dreams came about as a result of psychic abilities, or because I had already formed certain outcome to certain situations in my subconscious mind. And yes, I realize that the two aren't necessarily mutually exclusive.

Also, I think that if psychics were as consistently accurate as others claim, every law enforcement team in the country would have one on staff.

R275, Abby's middle name did start with a J, but they never said what the name was in the obit. Her obituary states that she died on Feb 14 while Libby's (the older one who recorded it) death date is Feb 13, according to her obit. Lots of people noticed that at the time. It would appear that Abby, the younger, smaller one, is the one the killer kept alive longer if the dates of death are to be believed. They had the bodies taken to the best forensics lab in the state for autopsies (which is why results took a while to come back), so I would assume they determined accurately how long each girl had been dead.

Some other stuff friend said - he trolls young girls' pictures on the internet (but not these girls).

He drives a larger vehicle. I asked her if he was a truck driver but she said she couldn't see specifically what he did but would look further. She did say later that she saw him using a CB radio - "Charlie'

As for the nose, she repeated several times about the nose not being normal, and his face being disguised (she specifically said nose is phony). She said "disguise on face" several times. She said the nose alone could get him.

As for the right leg, she said it's not a birth defect. he can walk on it. Was in a fire - military.

She did say that he went to a restaurant close to the area earlier that day. I know it's a long shot but maybe he paid with a credit card or maybe someone would remember someone that wasn't local eating by themselves.

She said he goes into a store where they know him a lot (in the area that he lives in). She sees him going to the same liquor store buying lottery tickets. He also goes to the same bar a lot. He drinks but is not a drunk.

She said he's a rural guy- likes to hunt, fish and take his 2 dogs off leash. An outdoorsy guy.

She said the white license plate will have significance.

Well r303 - Lindsay's body was found 2 months later - just her skeletal remains.

They are saying she committed suicide because of cyber bullying. Nothing else was ever released - not the person who bullied her - no info.

He car was left at the park, with her phone and wallet inside.

Mill Creek (off mill creek road) is a huge fishing spot.

I'm not saying there is any connection - but when the poster asked about mill creek road I couldn't help but think of Lindsay. Because she did die in a park in the fall. the body was discovered so late that only the skeletal remains were left. And the spot they found the body was a previously searched and active area. Very strange.

Sorry but I have to agree that the posts about the psychic are getting a bit ridiculous. One or two posts is fine, spamming the thread with increasingly embellished details is distracting and tiresome. Ever notice that psychics can provide the most trivial details about a suspect but never can provide any important information such as a name, address, social security number, place of employment, etc...

Anyways, my take on the "Libby is a hero" thing: after watching the Press Conference during which the "down the hill" voice snippet was released, I got the feeling that LE is realizing that they really fucked up by calling off the search that night. I think that Libby's "heroic efforts" might have been a bit exaggerated in order to compensate and make them "heroes" instead of "victims of a horrible murder."

The still images that LE released were taken from video that Libby took with her phone. We don't know if the audio snippet came from that same video, or if there were two separate videos. How could the man NOT have seen Libby's phone as he walked towards them? Why did he not just take it from her while on the bridge and toss it over? I think it's because at that point, he did not present himself as a threat, and the girls did not perceive him as one. I think that they did not realize he was a danger until later; at that point, Libby may have intentionally started recording (voice snippet) or she may have just accidentally hit the record on her phone, we just don't know. But yeah, seeing as she was able to manipulate her phone to record him (voice) then why not try to call 911 or her gf or someone? We will likely never know.

As for "down the hill", most assume he is directing them to walk down a hill. We just don't know that! He might have been giving them directions, or explaining where something is, etc. People assume too much about this case. LE is partly to blame for this.

R319 There is a difference between the day that someone is pronounced dead, and the day that someone actually dies. For example, a person dies of a sudden heart attack while at home. But is not discovered until days later. The person would be pronounced dead there at the scene on the day they were DISCOVERED. If there is an autopsy, it will then be revealed that the person actually died several days earlier. Both the day pronounced dead and the date of actual death are both legal and it would be up to the person's family to determine which date to use. This is probably what happened with Libby & Abby, one family used the date of actual death (13th) and one used the date they were pronounced dead (14th). I highly doubt they died on different days.

[quote] Both the day pronounced dead and the date of actual death are both legal and it would be up to the person's family to determine which date to use.

That's gibberish. Legal for what? Death certificates have lines for both date of death and date discovered (with the option of using "approx" if date of death can't be definitively determined) -- there are lots of examples online if you want to look for yourself.

If you mean it's legal for the parents to use either the 13th or the 14th in the obituary, of course it is, they're just newspaper announcements and can say whatever the people want them to say, within reason and depending on what the paper itself will print.

But if you mean the parents can go to court and say hey, the medical examiner determined she died on the 13th but we want to change it to the 14th, they'd have to provide legal reason to do so.

It may have been a typo but if so, the paper would have run a correction, I'd think. Unfortunately I think it means the girl died after midnight on the 13th and they were able to determine that with certainty.

He was even dressed like the guy in the photo, with cap, hood inside jacket, and hands in his pockets in one of the clips. Same outfit in other clips, then in the last clip before the arrest he finally took the hat and outfit off..He made some odd comments in the TV clips, too. Either him or someone he knows.

I don't think it was over trespassing because one of the girls took a photo of him on the bridge, not his property. Like he was acting menacing on the bridge. Then the "go down the hill" sounds like he is directing them (off the bridge?)

"The property owner is 77. Isn't that way too old for the creep in the picture?"

Yes. Bridge Guy looks much younger and has a plump, round face.

I can't believe anyone honestly thinks that a 77-year-old man who has lived on this property for 53 years just one day decided to go out and kill two teenage girls, then leave the bodies on his own land. Oh, and he's visually impaired, but he just decided to not wear his glasses that day when he walked across a very high, dangerous, rickety bridge. And then he gave an interview to every Tom, Dick, and Harry who asked for one even though he knew a voice recording was available for comparison.

Look, all WE have is three words on audio and two still photos. Law enforcement has the entire audio and the entire video. If the killer was Property Owner, they would already know that and he would already be charged. They are holding him on a VoP charge for his own protection and searching his house to play mind games with Bridge Guy. They want Bridge Guy to be completely convinced that Property Owner is their main suspect.

Well, your psychic friend is wrong, r387. My psychic friend told me that he is indeed "doughy," but that isn't what sets him apart from the crowd. Rather, it is his stark white skin and lack of any body hair.

My psychic friend also said that he has a pot belly that he presents to the poking, prodding fingers of strangers. Sweet Jesus, what is wrong with men these days?!?! I thank the Lord daily for blessing me with my DH.

Profile of sadistic rapist killer, using a sample of 30:

Most are white males

Fewer than one-half were educated beyond high school.

One-half used alcohol or other drugs

One-third served in the Armed Forces.

Forty-three percent were married at the time of the offense.

Forty-three percent of the men participated in homosexual activity as adults, 20 percent engaged in cross-dressing, and 20 percent committed other sexual offenses, such as peeping, obscene phone calls, and indecent exposure

77 percent of the offenders used sexual bondage on their victims, often tying them with elaborate and excessive materials, using neat and symmetrical bindings, and restraining them in a variety of positions.

60 percent held their victims in captivity for more than 24 hours.

The most common sexual activity was anal rape, followed in frequency by forced fellatio, vaginal rape, and foreign object penetration.

Sixty percent of the offenders beat their victims. Each of the sexual sadists studied intentionally tortured their victims. Each of the sexual sadists studied also inflicted psychological suffering on their victims.

Many demonstrate cunning and methodical planning. The capture of the victim, the selection and preparation of equipment, and the methodical elicitation of suffering often reflect meticulous attention to detail. Almost invariably, the victims were taken to a location selected in advance that offered solitude and safety for the sadist and little opportunity of escape or rescue for the victim.

Forty percent of the men took and kept personal items belonging to their victims

Sixteen percent of the men assaulted child victims only, and 26 percent attacked both children and adults

Twenty-nine of the 30 men selected white victims only.

Their crimes are repetitive, serious, and shocking, and they take special steps to prevent detection.

And they think they are smarter than the police and when being interviewed, will try and manipulate the interview and also try to gain knowledge of what the police know.

This is my theory (My theory, by Ann Elk): the girls met this pervert online. He presented himself as an older boy, maybe 15 or 16. They set up a date to meet at the bridge. They got the sister to drop them off; I'm sure she was happy to get them off her hands for a while and didn't even look back as she drove away. When the girls saw the pervert walking toward them, they realized they had been duped and were in real trouble. That was when the one girl got the idea to record him on her phone. I bet he didn't much mind the recording since he planned to destroy the phones all along. I have no idea why they didn't just bolt when they saw him coming toward them, but something kept them there. Perhaps he had a weapon or managed to grab one or both of them before they had a chance to run.

The people on the Websleuths site think the guy in the photo on the bridge has brown hair, but I think that is a cap under the hoodie which you see better in one photo. The property owner has a cap that color. He was wearing in in the news clip. Not necessarily that it is him, but you can see the similarities of the type of hat.

by Anonymousreply 44803/28/2017

I think there is a lot more to the story. Apparently Abby, the younger one, had a 15 or 16 year old "love interest", some are saying he was her boyfriend. He apparently wrote about Abby on his FB page and his father also told people that his son had been dating her. Not that I think her boyfriend had anything to do with their's just that the image presented of them is so wholesome and virginal, no mention of boyfriends or dating by anyone in either of the girls' families.

The property owner over-cooperated in the beginning, which is what landed him in hot water. Once he realized he was a suspect, he lawyered up, as he should.

The case is going cold. Whether that is by design or not is open to debate.

I think it's higly unlikely this person took them somewhere and brought them back to the location they went missing from. I think they died shortly after those pictures were taken.

Just rumors, but this guy talks to LE and family members...

Rumors from the search party stated that the girls had to have been moved since the dump site found on 2-14 had been searched on 2-13. The searchers were adamant that they had searched the dump site thoroughly on 2-13. But the girls were covered with leaves, which would have made them hard to find at night.

On the other hand, new evidence states that searchers ran a thermal imager over the area (perhaps with an aircraft?), and while there were plenty of living things down there, none of them were human. In other words, the only things alive in that woods when the imager was run were wild animals. One would think that if the girls had been put there by 4 PM or so on 2-13 that the bodies would have shown up on the thermal imager. Sources: People close to the search party, people close to the families, leak from LE.

The new rumor said that yes the searchers followed the girls’ trail to the dump site, but the trail that the followed was made up of drag marks, not footsteps. So the killer returned the girls to the forest where they were abducted somehow. But this might not be difficult if he had kept them alive in, say, an outbuilding on Ron Logan’s land to have his fun with them overnight. No searchers would go near those outbuildings as they were located far from the search zone, so he had no fear of being caught.

I believe that the homicidal attack on the girls, no doubt the throat slitting, may have been done not long before they were dumped on the hill.

somehow he dumped those bodies there between 2:30 AM on 2-13 and 9:30 AM on 2-14 when the next search started. Logically there is no way that he would have dumped those bodies in that dump site in daylight. That’s just stupid. So depending on whenever dawn was that day in Delphi, the bodies were dumped in the pitch dark early morning hours of 2-14 between 2:30 AM and ~5-6 AM.

they were dragged down the hill, placed at the dump site and then the killer speared Abbie in the stomach as one final “F- you” to the poor girl.

when they were found, they were bound and had been sexually brutalized as well as being very badly beaten.

Some of the audio was recorded right before the abduction, and there is six minutes after that. The audio right after the recording of the man saying, “Down the hill,” records the girls screaming.

The girls were clearly not attacked or not attacked much at the dump site as the dump site was described as pristine

Agree R477. It's not Logan. But that wouldn't stop local LE involved in some shady shit to take the heat off of themselves by allowing Logan to hang out to dry, at least for a while.

There is just something weird about this case. Right from the start. LE did not take the girls' disappearance seriously and called off the search early evening of the 13th. When they were found murdered around noon of the 14th, the sheriff looked like a damn deer in headlights. I think he knows something about what happened to those girls and why. When asked if the community was in any danger, his cryptic reply was something along the lines of "well the people of Delphi are smart, they can figure out if they are in danger or not." Translate: "You all have a pretty good idea of why these girls were killed and by whom, so just don't piss off the bad guys and you should be ok. Go on about your normal business". ???? WTF?

Then, the overly-dramatic press conference where every LE, FBI, etc representative was in attendance and gave lengthy, over-emotional speeches. Overcompensation for their initial fuckup of not looking for the girls that night. And again, over-emphasis of Libby being a "hero" when there is really no proof that she purposely videoed him or not, especially re: the still shot from the video of the suspect on the bridge. Again, trying to shift the narrative to "these girls are heroes!" as opposed to the truth: "these girls were brutally murdered and the murderer(s) are still walking free!".

And the thousands of billboards. Come on now, this was obviously a local crime done by a LOCAL. Why such a push to direct attention AWAY from Delphi? Time to clean up any messes and get their ducks in a row is what I think. They will continue scapegoating Logan for as long as they can get away with it. The case will then "go cold" but by then in everyone's mind, "Logan did it!". Once all the fundraising is done, the families will move on. People will forget. Another senseless murder of a child will be the spotlight case and take the place of Libby & Abby. It's sad, but this is what happens all the time.

The fact that nobody in the Delphi and surrounding areas has come forward to identify the suspect on the bridge tells me that it is obvious this is a local person that people, possibly LE included, are protecting, for whatever reason.

Yes, [R491], that Joey story was so complicated and *lurid*; so many unexplained, weird circumstances related to that.

*And* those threads were some of the best datalounge threads ever (there was a lot of dark humor mixed in with insightful commentary).

The threads were *long* too; everyone loved them. It was like a great mystery novel being played out week by week.

What *really* went down that night at the faux adopted son of the hot daddy jeweler's luxury penthouse?? I stil really want to know! (And there were SO many people involved and they had all only met Joey that night!) Crazy...

by Anonymousreply 49504/02/2017

Hi, [R495], yes, that pic of Joey is *very* real (from his Facebook page no less); he was an (apparently) nice "good old" Italian boy in NYC who met--for the first time--what he thought were some cool bros at an NYC club one night and went to the luxury penthouse of one of them to continue the party with the new group and was brutally murdered by the time morning came.

The main suspect was this young guy named James Rackover--first reported to be the son of famed jewelry designer to the stars, Jeffrey Rackover.

It turned out that James was not actually Jeffrey's biological son, but a young rent boy that the older jeweler had "adopted" and set up in a swanky NYC penthouse (changing his real name and everything). The story was so bizarre.

There were stories flying from law enforcement sources and media that Joey was killed by the partying group for everything from a fight about cigarettes (which I doubt) to Joey turning down the sexual advances of the Rackover rent boy himself (or one of the guy's close friends)--and this leading to a fight that led to Joey's brutal murder.

There were also rumors of alcohol, cocaine, and steroids being involved in that whole last party that Joey was at.

When Joey didn't come home for the usual Sunday family dinner, his Italian parents freaked out and filed a missing person's case and they were able to track his movements to the Rackover party and then trace the partygoers movements to Joey's body dump site in (I think) Jersey. (Not sure about the correct body dump site though).

Anyway, there were so many odd and sordid details about the lives of those involved in this case (and they had all just met Joey *that* night), so it was fascinating.

Police seem to know the "who" behind Comunale's senseless death (the young hustler/fake Rackover and his pals), but they don't seem to know the "why". Everyone at the party gave a different story.

I'm linking one of the original datalounge threads on this case below. It was one of many about Joey and the investigation that filled up very quickly....

It's very bizarre, [R508]; not only were the threads full of information about the case and its developments (new, legitimate news articles were being linked to daily on the threads), but overall--for datalounge anyway--the posters on the Joey threads were very respectful, and genuinely wanted justice for the guy.

Yes, there was your typical DL dark humor laced throughout (as always ;), but--like I mentioned previously--everyone was generally well meaning and really cared about the case and its developments.

There were also a lot of very interesting insights from DLers from the NYC and NJ area about the culture there--and especially the club/party culture there--that really enriched the reader's understanding of the case and what the primary players might have been like.

(And basically, *everybody* really liked Joey C., so these weren't negative threads about the victim either).

They were great discussions (some of datalounge's best true crime threads), so I thought it was very sad/confusing that they were just deleted out of nowhere...

I don't see why that's necessarily suspicious. It's not like he dumped the bodies there. Seems like all it means is he went further than his probation allowed and thus violated its terms.

And what's the deal with the warrant? Truth or more fiction from the person who claims to live in the area?

He could have been dumping evidence there. It's suspicious when it is the day of the murders and he said he was going somewhere else.

Yeah but he was already seen drinking in a restaurant that day, meaning he already had been seen "somewhere else" AND violating his probation.

If this guy really was out hauling trash and drinking and driving around, plus the fact that he's an unhealthy 77 year old alcoholic, I just don't know how he could be the murderer. He does kind of look like the bad photo of the suspect, and I have to think that the cops, with the full video and audio, would already know if he was the suspect. Who knows.

I agree with R534. Alcoholics aren't interested in kidnapping, raping, and murdering people. They are interested in ONE thing: booze. Booze, all day, all night, until they pass out. You think a real alcoholic is going to have time to plot something like this out? Or the motivation to do so? The only way an alcoholic would kill those two little girls is if they were named Vodka and Tonic.

Plus, r535, there's almost no doubt that this was a sexually-motivated crime. Most serial sex killers eventually age out by the time they'e elderly, if they have not been caught. They just don't have the urge anymore. Add a chronic alcohol problem on top of that, and...

If all that's true, motive could've been getting rid of a problematic pregnancy. Maybe there was a grown man who'd be in trouble for impregnating a 13 year old, or a local boy who didn't want the burden. A cop or the son of a cop?

Please forgive my filthy tongue and typing-fingers; using the vile language of the homosexualist was but a misguided means to an end. For you see, I MUST keep sleuthin'. If not I, who then will think of The Children? Save me from this path of sin and help me walk in righteousness, peace, and joy; demonstrating Your love here on earth.

Help me resist the urge to sleuth family members. Help me remember that minors are never to be sleuthed. Help me steer clear of Facebook posts, which are not to be discussed. Help me resist the urge to name names of those not yet confirmed as suspects. Help me avoid posting links to sites not approved by the moderators. Help me remember to write IMO and MOO at the end of every post. Lord, I am weak! So weak that the threat of being put on time-out, weighing so heavily upon my heart as it did, drove me here to this cesspool of sodomites.

Father, please help me change course. Direct me out of this lawless land and back to my home, where God-fearing women on SSDI smoke Camels and drink wine coolers while saving countless little white children. They have worked hard to help me stay on the path you have chosen for me and I have failed them by straying. Transform my thoughts and take away the temptations which have led me to this filthy pit. Lead me back to my little glory hole on the web, Lord, and cleanse me!
