    Defense attorney Randy Reep also looked at the video. He says that if the case gets to that point, a jury will almost certainly see that video.

    "The idea that someday an attorney, presumptively, might be making the argument that he was very apologetic and sympathetic or showed remorse," Reep said. "We didn't see any of that. And that is going to be difficult later for whoever represents him."

    The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office area conducting a large-scale search on Jax's westside.
    Police are asking people who live in the area of I-10 and Beaver Street, between Baldwin and I-295 to check their property thoroughly. JSO asks you call them if you find anything even remotely suspicious.
    Make sure to not touch or tamper with anything you may find. Also keep a lookout for any disturbed ground or unusual smells.
    JSO is also asking anyone with surveillance in the area to review video from Sunday, April 10 for any suspicious activity. You're being asked to watch out for a 2012 blue Toyota Corolla, the type of Rene drove and that suspect Steven Murray is accused of stealing.

    This case is heartbreaking. Father Rene, it appears was loved by many. I pray he didn't suffer at the hands of this monster. So senseless and cruel.

    Looks like they've extended that to the Baldwin area. News4Jax reports that citizens are being asked to check all property areas for disturbed ground and bodies of water. I pray he is found safe but I know that the odds are against good news.

    Sorry JaxFlaGal, just saw that you did have the Baldwin area noted in your post. I guess I need some coffee.

    The article has been updated. They have set up a command center at Baldwin High School. The area around Baldwin is a very rural area of Jacksonville/Duval County and there is also a lot of low-lying areas that can get swampy. It's going to be a difficult search area unless the POS *ahem* POI gives them better clues or the car itself can provide some hints. I sure hope that some video cameras caught the car and can start establishing a timeline and tighter location information.

    The perp has a huge scar going from above his right temporal area through the scalp and above the ear--looks like 3-4 inches and totally straight. It is not fresh but looks like someone got him good with a knife or something.

    This perp is a scary, druggy, crazy looking dude!

    I'm hoping that LE has cell phone pings or some other data for searching that particular area ( I-10 Baldwin area). I wonder why Murray didn't go to SC via I-95 from St Augustine? That's a more direct route if his initial plans were to head there...

    I read one local article this evening that indicated they had a ping in the Baldwin area, but I can't find the link now. I wonder it he'd stopped in western Jax to see his father? His dad was arrested Wednesday on an unrelated charge at a hotel off I-10 just east of 295 where the father lived (http://jacksonville.com/news/crime/2...st-case-charge), and that the POI had listed as his residence.

    Also the news articles I read indicated that on Tuesday (4/12), the POI eluded police while driving Robert's car, shaking them in a construction zone near I-95 and JTB (Florida SR 202).

    I agree. That's not a guy you'd want to run into in a dark alley!

    This case makes me so sad. I hope this guy gets put away for life (at least).

    Thanks JaxFlaGirl. The only info I could find from Jax4news is "“Law enforcement is determining where to search based on the information that they received from Murray,” News4Jax crime and safety analyst Gil Smith said." And I would never believe Murray. Also the article I linked says he was found in North Carolina, so sloppy reporting. I checked and there is no Aiken, North Carolina per google. (I wondered which reporter(s), the SC or NC reporters, were accurate.

    Looking at a map, he could have gotten onto J Turner Butler Blvd and then to 295 or even to A1A. I wonder why I-10, because it loops back south into Jax where he knows he's being hunted, except that he may have stopped to hide at his father's residence which LE would easily find. And this would have kept him in the area longer where he knew that LE was looking for him. I wonder if he actually jumped onto A1A or back onto I95 off of 295. Sorry for the rambling...

    But the ping you mentioned would definitely put him in the Baldwin area. I hope Father Rene is found soon.

    Looks like LE is not asking for volunteer help. I'd planned on going today but I will honor their request (looks like there were lots of people ready to help . If evidence is disturbed, they won't have a case and we all want that. Hoping he's found soon.

    The large-scale search operations for a missing priest on Jacksonville's Westside were discontinued Sunday.

    no other updates this morning.
