John Brennan Crutchley
What do people think of John Brennan Crutchley as a suspect in this case?
Crutchley, the so-called "Vampire Rapist," was suspected by the FBI of being a serial killer. Wherever he went, young women disappeared but the only crime he was ever convicted of was a gruesome sexual assault in Florida wherein he nearly exsanguinated his victim before letting her go.
His connection to the Lyons sisters is circumstantial - Crutchley was living in Fairfax County, VA at the time of their probable abduction and had roots in Montgomery County, MD. (His wife had family there.)"There are such devils."

At this point i think all of us here are zeroed in on Lloyd Welch (and family).
