    The reason I was checking this thread is I was looking for a picture of GMH. The FBI picture of the unknown person wanted in connection with the child pornography case sure looks a lot like GMH.

    I rechecked the FBI site for any updates and it was still the same article.
    I reread it and found that he got life without chance of parole but sentencing date was not set. I guess I missed it first time around.

    Hilton’s plea agreement provides that he will receive a sentence of life in prison without any possibility for parole for his crimes.

    Hilton remains in local federal custody. A sentencing date for the defendant has not been set yet.

    I just watched the Dateline I.D. episodes of "Mystery on Blood Mountain". It is about the abduction and murder of Meredith Emerson by Gary Hilton, and also goes into the murders of these two victims, John and Irene Bryant of NC, as well as Cheryl Dunlap of Florida.

    Hilton was convicted for Cheryl's murder in Florida and received the death penalty, this after being convicted of Meredith's murder in Georgia and receiving life w/o parole.

    My question is, how can this man now receive a lesser sentence in NC, life in prison w/o parole after already being sentenced to the death penalty in Florida? TIA to anyone for any help on this.

    BTW, for anyone who hasn't seen it, this documentary is excellent with some actual live video of Hilton showing him as nothing less than a completely narcissistic, evil psycho-maniacal killer with no conscience whatsoever. This man, I should say, this "It", is a totally repulsive, creepy, scary non-human being. Imo, whatever he gets is better than he deserves.

    After he was put on death row in FL last year, they transferred him to NC for the trial on the murder of both John and Irene Bryant. This was to be held this past April but he pleaded guilty in March thereby avoiding another trial and the death penalty again.

    Since then, as far as I can find, he is still in the custody of the FBI local facility in NC and has not been transferred back to the death row cell in FL.

    Thanks for posting these pictures.
    I had looked at them before, but was trying to find the ones where he was talking to the game warden down in FL where he was acting real crazy. IIRC I thought his hair coming out from under his cap was more curly. But comparing these pictures again to the ones posted by the FBI, I don't believe they are the same person now. The man in the FBI pictures looks to have more of a bubble nose and GMH has a pointed one. But then again, I know I wouldn't make a good witness.. LOL

    If anyone is interested in this search, WS has a thread in the Crimes - Spotlight on Children. Hopefully, this is the link to it.

    "Silence & Misinformation by Investigators via MS Media is the Predators most Lethal Weapon".. "If not for the heroic actions by Meredith Hope Emerson, prolific serial killer Gary Michael Hilton would still be preying on unsuspecting innocent victims, imo"...

    Meredith Emerson's tragic tale ignited national concern. The fate of her killer, however, is in the hands of Florida judicial system. Gary Michael Hilton is appealing a death sentence for the murder of a nurse in the state.

    Eerie and disturbing is how Seth Blankenship recalls the scene he encountered on Blood Mountain on the afternoon of New Year’s Day 2008.
    The hiking trail before him was torn up like there had been a fight. Water bottles, a leather dog leash, sun glasses, a police baton and a women’s hair barrette littered the ground.

    Blankenship did not know exactly what had just transpired or the horror that was about to unfold. At this moment, he was what an excruciating number of others would soon become — one step behind serial killer Gary Hilton.

    Thanks for posting this. So many "if only"s that could have saved Meredith's life. Who would have ever believed a serial killer was in area? It still gives me the chills reading this after all this time.

    I don't know why it took so long, but a date for sentencing has finally been set -

    ...he was charged by federal prosecutors in the Bryant case and pleaded guilty last year. He has been held in the Buncombe County Jail pending his sentencing, now scheduled for 2 p.m. April 25 in Asheville, N.C., before District Judge Martin Reidinger.

    Serial killer Hilton gets life in Pisgah slayings

    ASHEVILLE-NC — Holly Bryant would have preferred a death sentence for the serial killer who took the lives of her parents, but she takes solace in knowing he won’t kill again.

    Gary Michael Hilton, who faces the death penalty in Florida, was sentenced Thursday to life in prison without parole for kidnapping, robbing and murdering John and Irene Bryant while they were out for a hike in Pisgah National Forest in 2007.

    “He will spend the rest of his life and die in a cage or at the hands of a Florida executioner,” Holly Bryant said after the hearing in U.S. District Court in Asheville. “But the main thing is he will never get out to harm anyone again.”

    Hilton received FOUR life sentences for the kidnapping and murder of the Bryants plus 15 years for the robbery. Everything consecutively with the FL and GA sentences.

    ASHEVILLE, NC—Gary Michael Hilton was sentenced to four life sentences today in U.S. District Court for the kidnapping and murder of John D. Bryant and Irene W. Bryant and to 15 years in prison for a related robbery offense
