    What's the story?

    These photos were found when he was arrested in 1984, and the LE are just now looking into them?

    From your link:

    The photos and film were seized from Bradford's home when he was arrested in 1984, Peavy said. They went into a case file and remained largely untouched until now.

    "I have a number of detectives that I have hired back to look at old cases for DNA evidence and stuff like that," he said. "One of those detectives came forward with these photographs and said, 'You know, this is something that I think we should take a look at.' And obviously we all agreed that it should have been looked at -- probably looked at before now."


    ....should have been looked at.....that's an understatement! I wonder how many families still have no idea what happened to their loved ones because no one looked any further into these pictures at the time. How many parents have died without answers?

    I am really glad someone is finally doing the job.

    looks strikingly similar to number 29 to me.

    let me know if you think it's a good match and i will send it in.
    Looks good to me. Hairstyle is slightly different, but is parted on the same side, eyebrows, chin, cheekbones, forehead look very similiar.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Do you think #8 could be Tammy Lynn Leppert missing in 1983 from Coco Beach, Florida?

    All right, I've been looking at photos so long my eyes are starting to cross. But I found two missing women that look similar to the photos:

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...elizabeth.html
    and number 34

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...lli_linne.html
    and number 10

    Any of them any good? I think I am going to send in my previous match tomorrow. Cheri just looks too much like the woman for me to ignore.

    ETA: I realized one of the woman disappeared before 1977, so I removed her.

    The woman on the right in #54 looks like #15.

    In addition to some duplicates that we have noticed, the police have probably mixed in some random pictures of women who are not linked to the serial killer's cases. They often do that to help separate bad tips from good.

    I think 29 might be a light-skinned black girl. Looks it to me. Am I wrong?

    Ellen set up an interview the following day, Saturday, Sept. 10. But when she arrived at the Regency Plaza Shopping Center on Contra Costa Boulevard, the man told her the shopping center was still under construction and he'd have to interview her in his van.

Police have never publicly identified a suspect.
    The "employer" is described as being 45 - 50 years old with a medium build. He was White and had graying hair, which he combed over to conceal a bald spot.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Homicide investigators are trying to find at least 50 women they have linked to a man who is in prison for killing two women in the early 1980s, officials said.

    A sheriff's department statement said they may have been rape or homicide victims between and 1975 and 1984

    Maybe this will solve some of our Cold Cases....
    Another oddly phrased headline.
    My response would be, first, "yuck" and then: if they're missing how can he look into them?

    Don't completely dismiss the missing children. I would swear that the girl in picture #54, on the left, is a teen.
    And even with the others, some could be 16-18 year old's, sometimes they look older than what they are. Remember, they may have thought they were going to be photographed by a fashion photographer, so they may have gone a little heavier on the makeup.

    Steve Huff says that #28 has already been identified as Donnalee Campbell Duhamel according to an AP article. Huff also makes the point that some of the hairstyles were not fashionable during the late 70's early '80's, but were more in fashion during the 60's. So it may be possible that LE time period may be off.

    Possible Match

    I'm not very good at this, but thought I'd give it a try:

    Compare: woman in picture #32
    http://www.nbc4.tv/slideshow/news/95...s;p=news;w=400

    and http://www.doenetwork.us/cases/324ufca.html

    Sorry I can't figure out how to abbreviate a link.
