    momtective, when u searched under his previous residences, does it say how long he stayed in each area it seems like a lot of moving for a pretty stationary career such as a pastor. A lot of moving around could mean he's gotten into trouble before maybe? Am I looking too far into this?

    Investigators closely questioned Pastor Lane Lawless of the Clover Road Baptist Church this week, seized a phone and computers from his residence in the mobile home park and combed through the church for evidence all day Tuesday. But they have not named him as a suspect, and the 77-year-old Lawless said Tuesday he had nothing to do with the girl's killing.

    It does seem like a lot of residences for a Pastor. I'm wondering if he was "called" by the congregation or if he was appointed. I'm also wondering what other churches he may have served at.

    Of course! I'd like to know what his congregation thought of him too in previous churches. It was my understanding the preachers stick to one church for years but idk as im not one lol and don't know any personally. Wonder if he has a criminal background?

    While searching for info on the preacher I found he purchased his current MH back in Nov of 1992. (Per netdetective). I think the alias's appear because he uses his middle name rather than his first name.

    He has been at this church in Tracy for almost 30 years...since 1981. That seems like a really long time.

    I'm not sure how it works in a baptist church. But I know for certain in Methodist they are assigned. We had a wonderful pastor for say about 8 years, and suddenly he was reassigned to a town about two hours away. Had no say in the matter either, it was his time to move to a new congregation.

    This is just a thought, but **if** and that is an if, he has a history of indecency with minors others who he has victimized will come forward, even if not publicly.
