    Possible Links between RAT and JM

    I'm starting this thread to specifically discuss any potential links between RAT and JM, since I don't see a specific thread for this in the RAT sub forum.

    Well we could start with the coincidence that RAT had "55" tattooed on his neck and JM's last two football numbers at CNU and the Virginia Silverbacks was 55. Coincidence? Let's start adding up the coincidences...

    "Once commonwealth's attorney Anthony Martin rested his case, Hallahan called his first witness. One woman claimed to have seen Murphy and Taylor together near a downtown Charlottesville parking garage after seeing the two on the news. She also testified about seeing a burgundy car driven by a man with dreadlocks."

    I have always thought there was a connection. Thanks for adding this thread.

    I have something I want to say, but I can't!! It would bring up a name that's not been mentioned at all in either case. But FWIW, I do think there's a connection... AND that same connection is there not only when it comes to Alexis's disappearance, but Samantha Clarke's as well.

    (To be clear, this is only what I think based on what I've found through sleuthing. I have no first-hand or inside knowledge about any of this.)
    I think I think too much.

    I dont think the 2 cases are related. I think RAT killed SC and AM and JLM killed HG and MH. The other murders could be either of them.

    Hopefully the dna from icehouse bottle in Randy Allen Taylor trailer was preserved. Randy stated the black male drank from it.

    RAT attorney has also asked for dna testing comparison and Nelson County said they would, so hopefully eventually that will come out.

    I left this question over on the Randy Allen Taylor thread, but noted that there isn't much going on over there right now, so am asking it here as well.
    I hope it isn't too gross for the forum, and that someone will have the answer. Taylor said (or is reputed to have said) of Alexis Murphy that "from the first time I seen her, I wanted to **** her my way."
    What does that mean? Is it just something people say, like a local colloquialism, or was there some sort of specific meaning to the statement? It's not that I want to have a long conversation about Taylor's sexual likes and dislikes, yuck, but if there was some sort of specific predilection (sp?) it might shed light on his associations, habits, and ultimately, the possible location of Alexis Murphy's body. And now that we are looking so closely at JLM, it's worth considering all over again.
    Even if RAT and JLM didn't know each other or "work together" as serial killers, (!) were there similarities between them that might have made them run in the same circles or do some of the same things? I think we have to assume that a person who would kill must have some very powerful compulsions. How does that happen, and from a sleuthing perspective, how do those compulsions play out in what might be considered a person's "normal" or "external" if you prefer, life?
    All this is a long-winded way of saying that I think the "my way" question is worth asking and answering.
    My apologies if this has already been discussed, but I haven't been able to find the answer.

    I dont think we know what that means. Probably just some braggadacio, as supposedly it was uttered to a cell mate.

    He did purchase a pornographic movie earlier that day, but not sure ifnit was revealed what it was. That may gove some insight into hos tastes.

    It was two porn tapes. During the trial an employee working at the store testified that they were “A Doll’s House” and “Mexican Pussy." It was argued that the videos indicated he wasn't into black women or something, (but I think most of us know that's not true). I really do think RAT holds guilt in some capacity to Alexis' disappearance, but even after being found guilty and with all the information that came forth in the trial, I still can't say I 100% believe he was the person who actually killed Alexis (presuming she's deceased - which, sadly, I think she is).
    I think I think too much.

    What does that mean? [snipped]

    I snipped your quote for space. That statement was from an inmate in the same jail as RAT who actually has a record that's much more extensive than RATs . . . so I personally find it hard to trust the source of it. That inmate may have been telling the truth, but for someone that's proven over and over and over again that he can't be trusted (evidenced by the man's public court records), why should he be trusted with that as well? I don't think we'll ever know if it was simply braggadocio from RAT or just another convict looking for attention.

    Both frequented the Charlottesville area.
    There is a DNA link regarding JM that puts him on Route 29. RAT lived on Route 29.
    RAT says there was a guy involved with dreadlocks. JM has dreadlocks. (Both could still be involved or RAT could still have murdered Alexis alone)
    Just the facts, Ma'am.

    "My way" just seems like such an odd thing to say (assuming that it's a direct quote, and given the quality of inmate testimony, who really knows?)

    Going by the titles of the two movies, they sound like pretty standard porn fare, so not much to go on there.

    I still wonder whether "my way" has a specific meaning.
