But in the days that followed, she must have been cold lying in that van so, to keep her alive, Hilton dressed her in other victim's fleeces that he had lying around the van.
    If it is true that he kept Jack Bryant's yellow coat and had the temerity to wear it (did he think he'd look like Jack Bryant at the ATM?), I wouldn't think he'd have thrown away the purple fleece, either. I mean, if he's got a kidnapped girl tied up in his van, why throw away the fleece? She's more evidence than the fleece would be.

    But I totally agree with you about the blood in the van. It makes no sense that he'd decapitate her in the van. My guess is that the blood was from other things (not nice to think about, at all...) and that he hadn't realized that there was blood inside his van until he looked at the stuff later on.

    Or was he really that confident that his van would never be searched? Until he heard about the newsflashes. Then he decided to clean out the van... (ok, bad memory again - the fleeces were NOT at the car wash, right? So he'd stopped and dumped stuff twice?)

    This is such a very very sad story. The whole ordeal of Merdith Emerson at the hands of that evil SOB.

    I did see a news report ( and I am trying to locate it so I can post it ) where the investigator was being interviewed by a reporter and he states that Meredith was murdered at the site where her remains were found.
    He went on to state that he couldn't give any details of how they knew that, but they knew that as a fact in this case.

    Brevard, N.C. Investigators have evidence linking Georgia drifter Gary Michael Hilton with the killing of a Henderson County woman and presumed death of her missing husband, Transylvania County Sheriff David Mahoney said Wednesday.

    Glad to see this article said evidence linking GMH to the Bryants. When the sheriff said postive link I took it to mean evidence. We knew they already had links with the stolen car plate, the LE car videocam of him speaking with the agent in NC, we knew they had links..hoping it is something like a receipt from the ATM or an article of clothing belonging to one of the Bryants. Their family needs closure and to know where Mr Bryant's body is now.

    I notice there may also be a link to a missing young woman in Swain county NC.

    I believe this Hilton devil is responsible for more missing murdererd persons than we can imagine!!!

    Creepy scarey monster!

    Creepy, indeed!!! I hiked four states on the AT alone with my dog. It took me 1 month. I was extremely fortunate not to find this guy on my path. It occurred to me that from what we know at this point he targeted day-hikers. Perhaps he knew day-hikers hike with their guard down compared to through- hikers and most likely would be weaponless. We know he did not consider a dog or a companion to be sufficient protection.

    I hope they can locate John Bryant, too. Right now, his is the only body missing in this case.

    The other cases they are seriously considering they have the bodies, but no perp. (I wonder when they are going to dive into the cases where there are no bodies yet to find out if they are related to GHM. We know the probability exists that he is responsible for so many more.)

    Here's another story about the link between the Bryants and Hilton. The story doesn't have any new information in it, but I thought the AP video included on the page was good.

    Hilton officially connected to Bryant murder; charges must wait

    I know ya'll have seen the dash cam video from a Gerogia Sheriff's car.

    Very chilling, and notice how " hyper " (THINK NERVOUS ) the monster acts!


    http://www.wsbtv.com/news/15005616/detail.html


    The date of this confrontation was 10/26/2007. 5 days after the death and disappearence of Irene and John Bryant!

    I think LE should be seriously searching this area for poor John's body! And they well may be as I post this!
    Who knows, Hilton could of had the poor man in the van at that time!

    And I guess that the Sherrif here is also very frotunate he didn't become a victim as well!

    I would most certainly be looking for Mr. Bryant's remains in and around where the dash cam video was recorded.

    Unhappy

    Autopsy on Irene confirms that she was bludgeaned in the head.
    And it's believed that she attempted to defend herself against the attacker.
    Her left hand and forearm was broken!

    So sad.

    It is my hope that she and all of his victims fought against him in some way.
