    Does anyone know if RAT was still employed at the car lot when he was arrested this time? His employer said he worked off & on there. Would this not give him access to multiple cars & possibly a company tow truck? Looked at the business website but it's rinky dink & doesn't have much info

    Thank You for posting this news article link in Samantha's thread, ktgirl.
    Now I can understand why this RAT is so familiar to some of you!

    Before 1992- no actual dates, but over 18- as this database does not list anyone under 18. Ancestry.com

    Birth Date: 19 Jun 19**
    Address: Oak Harbor, WA, 98277-8019

    ETA: I checked the 1982 & 1983 Yearbook for Oak Harbor; not listed....

    Great find! Thank you.

    When I looked it up I found possible links with this address to addresses in
    Oak Harbor, WA
    Oak Harbor, WA
    Mount Vernon, WA
    Santa Rosa, CA
    Guerneville, CA

    Which lead me to the WA court system. I am really bad at looking those up though. I found some juvenile cases in Spokane for a Randy Taylor but it didn't give me any details. Someone with more skills than me should try

    Oak Harbor has a NAVY HOSPITAL!

    I think we can figure out how he got to Virginia!

    Oak Harbor Navy Hospital is next to the Naval Ocean Processing Facility Whidbey Island. This is a facility that does undersea surveillance. Submarines, right?

    From the Court Appearance video from 8/13/2013

    Here is what I notice about RAT:
    Even though he is wrinkled and aged beyond his 48 years,
    the whites of his eyes are clear
    the muscles in his neck and his forearms are extremely inflated
    He does not appear weak to me.

    He does not appear to be vey tall but his neck is extremely long and disproportionate to the rest of his body.

    Most noticeable are the many moles and brown spots around and on his right ear.

    I am almost completely convinced that he is currently missing a lot of teeth...

    IMO, the tats and the change in hair color and extreme weight loss,over the past couple years, has been done for two reasons. One, to change his appearance in an effort to confuse prior victims...and Two, to make people think that it can't be him because they would remember those tats and that vehicle. They would remember a guy who looked like that.

    The facts are now buried amongst theory, opinion and rumor.

    The other thing we found was the the address is currently listed as an adult care home but that is newer than the time RAT was associated with that address.

    Is there any way to find out if he was in the Navy? The timing would be about right for him to have enlisted out of high school.

    By 1983, he would have been 17 or 18...if he is really 48.

    I don't think so. On NG I caught a glimpse of his records that she flashed on the screen... he has an assault & battery from 1986..but maybe a short one.

    Here is something else to consider. If he grew up in Washington, then he was very aware of the Green River Killer. Did that influence him? Maybe the way to find these girls is to look where Ridgway would have gone.
