    In Duluth, GA - July 2006

    Duluth Police Encountered Hilton

    GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- WSB-TV has learned there are three videotapes of an encounter with Duluth police received by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Friday morning. The encounter happened in July 2006, which gives investigators one more point in their timeline in tracking Gary Hilton’s whereabouts.

    “To be that close to someone who is that deadly, it is frightening,” said Bill Taylor. Taylor doesn’t remember seeing Hilton walk past his house or hand out flyers, but knowing Hilton was on his street is bad enough.

    North Carolina investigators looking into Gary Michael Hilton involvement in 2005 hiker disappearance of Rossana Miliani
    by Jon Ostendorff
    published January 15, 2008 12:15 am

    Bryson City – State investigators are looking into whether Georgia drifter Gary Michael Hilton may have been involved in a woman’s disappearance two years ago in Swain County, authorities said Monday.

    Rossana Miliani was last seen on Dec. 7, 2005, in Bryson City. The 26-year-old had told her family she was going hiking.

    ~snip~

    Private investigator Steve Siske said the clerk told him Miliani came into her store that day with a white man she thought was about 60 years old. They bought a backpack, and Miliani seemed nervous, Siske said the clerk told him on Dec. 13.

    ~snip~

    He said the clerk remembers the man bought a used suit and said something that also appears connected to the allegations against Hilton.

    GBI seeking Hilton's abandoned van

    GBI seeking Hilton's abandoned van

    N.C. sheriff says he has 'positive link' to suspect in murder

    The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking for Gary Hilton's old van, which was broken down and abandoned in National Forest land in White County for two years but may still contain evidence in the suspected serial killer's case.

    GBI Spokesman John Bankhead said the van, a white 1996 Chevy Astro van bearing Georgia tag 766 XPZ, was abandoned in the Tray Mountain area of White County at the end of Forest Service Road 690, also known as Hickory Nut Ridge Road, up until sometime in mid-December.

    A citation for leaving the abandoned vehicle in U.S. Forestry Service land was written by the U.S. Forest Service in 2005, Bankhead said. It had not been moved since the citation was written until about a month ago when a hunter noticed it was gone, Bankhead said.

    The van was not drivable. Authorities believe someone, probably not Hilton, had the van towed and may have salvaged it for scrap. What evidence it might contain, if any, remains unknown.

    Van is Found

    http://www.wsbtv.com/news/15086686/detail.html

    After seeing a television report on the van, agents received a tip from a man who had seen a flat-bed tow truck remove the vehicle from the area the van was last seen in White County.
    Agents contacted the tow truck owner who told them he had taken the vehicle to a scrap metal yard in Habersham County.

    Agents recovered the vehicle from the scrap metal yard and transported it to the GBI's Regional Investigative Office in Cleveland, Ga. where it will be processed for evidence next week. The van had been stripped and is in very bad condition, according to officials.

    A hunter last came across the white Chevy Astro van on a rarely traveled road in the Chattahoochee National Forest in White County in December.

    white van belonging to murder suspect Hilton found in scrapyard

    "In the two years it had sat there, it had been stripped, smashed by a four-wheeler and used for target practice.
    Spokesman John Bankhead said what remained of the van was found in a metal scrap yard in Habersham County. It was taken to the GBI office in Cleveland and it will be scoured for evidence even though it has been "stripped and is in very bad condition."

    a bit more info

    Darragh said Hilton intended to abduct Meredith Emerson to take money from her bank accounts but eventually he knew he would take her life. Darragh said Hilton told Emerson he was going to let her go and then struck her several times with a jack handle until she died.

    The Power In Fear: Stopping The Threat

    this article provides a good review of intuition, following your gut, self defense measures and the old adage of not allowing oneself to go to crime scene#2...

    "Crime scene #1 is where they gain control of their victim," Wilson explains. "Crime scene #2, unfortunately, is where law enforcement finds you.

    The Power In Fear: Stopping The Threat

    "Nobody would've suspected the old man with his dog to be a potential serial killer," says Justin Wilson, head of the Alpharetta-based Assets Protection Consultants. "She was probably disarmed a little bit by his appearance."

    Sometimes, though, your intuition does give you enough warning so that you know that the person in your personal space is bad news. Then, you have to establish a boundary—quickly and firmly.

    "Do not allow anybody to get in your personal space," warns Wilson.

    The thing is, women are nurturing by nature, and don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. But at the expense of safety?

    "You know when you feel in your gut when somebody doesn't seem right or their intentions there are not wholesome," says Wilson.

    Hiker never gave up fight, Hilton said

    By RHONDA COOK, CHRISTIAN BOONE
    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    Published on: 03/23/08

    ........snip............

    As they struggled near the Appalachian Trail, Meredith Emerson disarmed her attacker of a knife and baton.

    Hilton eventually subdued Emerson, kidnapped her and later killed her. She did not make it easy for him, according to interviews Hilton gave to investigators that were obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    .............................snip................. .....

    "She was doing everything she could to stay alive," GBI Director Vernon Keenan said. "It's not something you can train for. Instinct kicks in. ... She nearly got the best of him. ... She's very much a hero."

    ..............................snip................ .........

    Chained or bound

    In the following hours and days, Emerson kept Hilton off-balance by repeatedly giving him the wrong PIN for her ATM card but assuring each time that this time the numbers were correct.

    She bought time with that ploy. Three days.

    Confessed killer to be extradited to Florida

    By SHANNON McCAFFREY
    Associated Press Writer

    JACKSON, Ga. (AP) -- A judge Friday cleared the way for the confessed killer of a Georgia hiker to be extradited to Florida, where he faces the death penalty in the slaying and decapitation of a nurse.

    Gary Michael Hilton, a 61-year-old drifter already serving a life sentence for killing hiker Meredith Emerson in Georgia, has been indicted in the death of 46-year-old Cheryl Hodges Dunlap, a nurse whose body was found Dec. 19 in the Apalachicola National Forest, southwest of Tallahassee.

    Hilton has 30 days to appeal the ruling by Butts County Superior Court Judge Thomas Wilson. Department of Corrections officials declined for security reasons to give details about Hilton's transfer to Florida
