    Cano is having trouble breathing in prison, the OC Reg reports.

    Just saying.
    Well, that would save the expense of a trial. Too bad he didn't have trouble breathing before he started murdering.

    Awesome article from the time LE found Julissa Trapp. It's behind the scenes of the investigation.

    JMHO

    Faith, love and tracking serial killers

    Detectives describe how they investigated the slayings of five women on O.C. streets.

    Anaheim homicide Detective Julissa Trapp looked at the body of a young woman that had tumbled onto a recycling conveyer belt from a garbage truck and knew one thing with absolute certainty – she needed to buy a rosary.

    The next day, Trapp headed to the store where she gets a rosary every time she launches a homicide investigation. With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, she picked a green one.

    First the detective would pray her team would find the killer of the 21-year-old who ended life both as a mother and a street walker. Then – if Trapp’s prayers were answered and a suspect was arrested – she would give the rosary to the victim’s family.

    This week, Trapp handed the green rosary to Jodi Estepp as she mourned the death of her daughter, Jarrae Estepp. It was a moment of some closure for the grieving parent. But there was no closure for the detective.
    Coming off four weeks of dumpster diving and sleepless nights, Trapp’s team had grown to more than 75 as detectives scoured alleys, consulted with FBI profilers and sifted through data collected from GPS monitoring systems to make a key breakthrough. They discovered they weren’t just searching for Jarrae Estepp’s killer but something that usually only exists in movies and television: a serial killing duo.

    Trapp’s team arrested two suspects on charges of murdering Estepp and three other women, but the remains of three victims are still missing. Worse, Trapp knows in her bones and from evidence gathered that there is a fifth victim whose name remains a mystery.

    She also acknowledged during a wide-ranging interview this week, “There could be more.”

    ‘DON’T GET TO MEET VICTIM’

    Born in the San Fernando Valley, Trapp moved to Anaheim as a child. When she was five years old, a policeman gave her a sticker and she laughed recently when she recalled knowing then and there what she wanted to be when she grew up – not a policewoman but a policeman.
    When she turned 16, Trapp joined the Anaheim police department’s explorer program. At 21, she was hired as a cadet. Her mentor was old school and advised that if she wanted to join what police call the varsity squad – homicide – she needed to work in the domestic violence unit, sex crimes or gangs.

    Trapp worked all three.

    So why exactly does LE still use those ankle bracelets? It's nice that they can get these guys after the fact, but for some reason, I thought they were supposed to keep things from happening rather than using the past data to find out two guys killed 4+ women. I suppose it's better than nothing, but it sure gives a false sense of security to the community.

    " Agents tracking child-porn suspect David Renz then missed 46 alerts in nine weeks, including one generated when he removed his bracelet in March. He then raped a 10-year-old girl and killed her mother. Renz pleaded guilty to those charges July 17."
    Just the facts, Ma'am.

    I've never seen that johntv site before - wowsers

    now I'm just so very sad for beautiful Jarrae and the life she probably felt stuck in

    I hope though that her baby will now have a chance at a different life

    Another big article in the OC Reg. Gordon seems to feel it's all the fault of authorities and the parole board - if only he'd been treated right after molesting his young nephew, he wouldn't have had to go out and murder (allegedly) women?

    Cano's tough break seems to have been eczma.

    I think there is a little hope that Cano, the younger one, will feel enough shame to reveal the locations of the other victims. He seems to put a lot of importance on what his family thinks, so maybe they can help persuade him?

    I think that when the details emerge KFI (particularly John and Ken) will go ballistic. AB109 (release of non-violent offenders on parole - however, they are released on the crime that put them in the system, no priors considered - is a HUGE issue here) the whole "Jerry's Kids" law. If it emerges these 2 were on the AB109 program the political fallout will be huge.

    *As far as I'm aware, Governor Jerry Brown had no choice, this is a Federal order to empty out the prisons to avoid overcrowding, but we have had plenty of examples of this being a not very good idea so far. Serial killers may just push it over the edge. CA is broke. What do we do?

    Two convicted sex offenders who are charged with raping and killing four women while wearing GPS tags pleaded not guilty to the charges during a video arraignment as the mothers of two of the victims watched...

    Investigators are also looking into the possibility the pair were involved in the death of an unidentified fifth women last seen in February but have yet to file charges relating to that case.

    California parole records released to The Times show Cano and Gordon’s shared history extends back to just after their release from prison, including one occasion when they fled to Alabama in 2010. The Times previously reported that the men fled the state in 2012.

    Moreover, the two men went to police in 2011 to seek protection from a third sex offender who they alleged had threatened to kill them.

    “Being in concert, that takes it to a whole other level,” said State Sen. Jim Nielsen (R-Gerber), a former state parole commissioner. He called for the state corrections department to release currently sealed records that show how closely the agency supervised Cano and Gordon.
