Online profile at odds with image Rafferty presented to women he dated, trial hears
And of all the oddities, none was more jarring than the message he posted a few hours before he allegedly kidnapped, raped and beat to death eight-year-old Victoria (Tori) Stafford.
“Everything good is comming (sic) my way,” he wrote at 10:01 a.m. (EST) on April 8, 2009.
Tori was abducted at roughly 3:35 p.m. the same day. No explanation was offered as to what Mr. Rafferty had meant in this, the first entry in his 22-minute computer session that morning. But despite being a digital aficionado, updates to his profile were infrequent.
His previous entry, where he asked rhetorically, “Where are my good old friends, I need them with me...to get ahold of me so we can meet up,” had been on April 2.
