    Franc Cano & Steven Dean Gordon, Suspected SK's - *ARRESTS*

    These guys may be linked to the missing Santa Ana women and the gal murdered in Anaheim. I decided to make a new thread:

    So tragic...

    I am not clear on how there is proof these two men are connected....

    Not that I doubt the report... Just that I may have missed the information...

    Maybe we will learn more at the presser tomorrow?

    JMO

    RIP, Martha....



    for those that love her....
    There is so little info on these two. Here's an article from today though: http://touch.latimes.com/#section/17.../p2p-79912861/

    From what I can gather, these two met as registered sex offenders and cut off their ankle bracelets and fled the state. They were rearrested and had to give DNA samples (although shouldn't that's have been done already?)

    I think their DNA was found on Estepp's body and someone may have confessed.
    Presser is today at 4 I think.

    Another article posted on Martha's thread: http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?se...nty&id=9501827

    This case hits close to home. I live in Anaheim and am from and was raised in Santa Ana where my mom still lives.

    Thank you for starting this thread, Gitana!

    This hits close to home for me, as well...

    We have lived either close by or in Santa Ana for many years...

    And are often in the city and neighboring cities for various reasons...

    (O/T.... But my DD just graduated from a college in Santa Ana in January!

    ETA... In fact the college is located on First Street... Not far from where one of the perps was arrested...)

    Press Conference is at 4pm in Anaheim PD Training auditorium. No on camera interviews are planned. Here is the PD press release:

    Hoping someone in CA will catch the presser broadcast live on TV, and give us an update.

    ETA: Interesting comment on the police FB page, re where they may live, considering media's reporting the men as transients.

    Just watched the presser on ABC7. The suspects will be arraigned tomorrow on four counts of rape and murder. Possible that DA will seek the death penalty. Didn't get to hear all of the presser as KABC7 switched over to another news story.

    2 sex offenders charged with rapes, killings
    By GILLIAN FLACCUS, Associated Press | April 14, 2014 | Updated: April 14, 2014 6:03pm



    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Two registered sex offenders who have known each other since at least 2012 were charged Monday with raping and killing four California women since last year, authorities said.

    Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, were each charged with four felony counts of special circumstances murder and four felony counts of rape, the Orange County district attorney's office said.

    If convicted, the men could face a minimum sentence of life without parole or the death penalty. They were being held without bail and expected to be arraigned Tuesday.

    Both men were arrested Saturday for investigation of killing the women beginning in October. Police believe there could be more victims and the department has contacted other places with missing persons cases across the country, said Anaheim police Lt. Bob Dunn.

    They keep quoting AnayA's mom as saying they found her body. I think it's clear someone talked.

    Sick human beings. I felt so bad for these women and their families and I'm sure glad to see the police haven't dropped the ball.

    TIA...

    GPS anklets

    Were they incredibly brazen? Or just plain dumb?

    Police: OC murder suspects wore GPS devices during killings (updated)

    KPCC staff and wires | April 14th, 2014, 6:19pm
    Update 4:42 p.m.

    Police investigators say two suspects in the murders of four women in Orange County were wearing GPS anklets at the time of the crimes.

    Anaheim and Santa Ana police linked suspects Franc Cano and Steven Dean Gordon to the disappearances of the four women because they were wearing GPS anklets.

    [snipped]
    Using data from the anklets, police determined the suspects were in the vicinity where the four women where last seen.

    [snipped]
    Anaheim Police Chief Raul Quezada said the GPS devices were attached to the suspects during the commission of the alleged murders.
    He said there may be more victims.

    "Based on the evidence collected, based on information we have, we are confident there's one additional victim and possibly more," said Quezada.
