    OH - Richard Beasley & Brogan Rafferty, 3 Craigslist killings, Noble County, 2011

    http://www.farmanddairy.com/uncatego...ers/31782.html

    We presently have two suspects in custody. Neither of the two suspects are residents of Noble County. We believe the attempted murder of victim number one and the likely murder of victim number 2 are connect and possibly committed by the same person. … I will say this matter is still under investigation and other arrests are possible. The gambit of charges connected to this case could range from kidnapping and theft to murder and attempted murder.

    Not being from the area really worries me that these people could have been doing this for a while in different locations!

    Police said both victims were encouraged to bring motorcycles and electronic equipment with them to Noble County, so the shooters could trick them and steal their belongings.


    On Nov. 11, a woman from Boston said her twin brother was missing and said he had answered an ad for a job in Noble County. He was last seen in Parkersburg, W.Va.

    One suspect is over age 50 and the other is under age 30.
    A third person reported missing may also be linked to the case.


    Do I have this thread in the right forum?

    OH - Craigslist Murders - Richard Beasley, 52 and Brogan Rafferty, 16

    Authorities have a teenage male and an adult male in custody according to the Noble County Sheriff's Department.

    Authorities received a call five days after the South Carolina man was shot from the Florida man's twin sister, concerned that her brother had not been heard from since Oct. 22 in Parkersburg, W.Va., the sheriff said. The twin, in Boston, said her brother had responded to what she believed was the same Craigslist ad, which sought a caretaker for cattle on a 688-acre farm.

    The sheriff said the South Carolina man had been told to carry his belongings to Ohio because he'd be living at the farm, and robbery was believed to be the motive.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Fla. Craigslist jobseeker found dead in Ohio grave*MERGED*

    Wonder who this could be or if he was even listed as missing?

    "COLUMBUS, Ohio—A jobseeker from Florida who responded to a bogus Craigslist ad for a job on a southeast Ohio cattle farm was found dead, buried in a shallow grave, and another from South Carolina was shot but escaped by running away through the woods, a sheriff said Thursday.

    Noble County Sheriff Stephen Hannum said two men were taken into custody after cadaver dogs found the body of the Florida man this week in a grave in a remote area outside Caldwell, a small village about 80 miles east of Columbus."

    yikes

    poor guys just wanted a job

    I wonder about the robbery motive ... I wouldn't think the victims had much with them in the way of money/valuables

    Yeah that bothered me too Ladyl. I mean they might bring a small amount of money with them, but most likely they would use a bank acct. They might bring their property, but how much of that would be worth stealing?

    I'm thinking more serial killer here. Like maybe they use Craigslist to draw them, then have their own reasons for killing them. Probably reasons we wouldn't understand but that satisfy some need of theirs.

    I'm thinking of the 16 year old that was arrested. I wonder if he was the adults son and if he participated because he wanted or because he felt he had no other choice?

    Lots of strange things here. For one Stow is nowhere near Noble county. Also the older man is being held on charges of prostitution? My guess is that he used his Craigslist account for all kinds of nefarious purposes.

    I just hope they don't find more victims. Stow is north of Akron. It's about a 2 hour drive. First victim was met in Parkersburg. Second was met in Marietta. I'm thinking someone in that area was probably also involved. Why choose those two towns to meet?

    The juvenile is also charged with purposely aiding or abetting the second suspect, Richard J. Beasley.

    Beasley, 52, has a previous criminal record and a warrant was issued for his arrest in September.

    According to the Summit County Court of Common Pleas, in two separate cases stemming from February, Beasley was previously charged with aggravated trafficking of drugs, tampering with evidence, possession of criminal tools, aggravated menacing, possession of counterfeit controlled substances, drug paraphernalia, illegal cultivation of marijuana and possession of drugs.
