    If this BE is the CSK I am stunned that he would want to be anywhere within cooee of a white station wagon or work van, let alone have them parked all over his property, given that this was identified as the kind of vehicle the CSK drove.

    Was he that confident that he would never be discovered or was it another case of 'hiding in plain sight' as I think 88mph conjectured. A case of there are so many white work vehicles on the streets that noone would look twice at him?

    Anyone have any theories on choosing Claremont for all 3 abductions?

    Sure, he drove around a lot, but why choose this area 3 times in a row?

    I'm no fan of Caporn... but come on, there was no DNA testing in WA in 1988. Even in the 1990s DNA testing was nothing like it was today. It's only recent advances that have become available in the past 5-10 years that likely have allowed them to get DNA matches at all.

    The police did mangle this case though - even without DNA, it's amazing this guy was able to attack 4 women in Claremont within a 2 year period and not even be a POI or have ever been questioned. The macro team should have been looking at all past sexual assault cases for clues. If he was the prime suspect in the 1988 case, but they didn't have enough evidence to convict, he still should have been examined years ago. From what I'm reading in the media it seems like this is the first time he's ever come on the police radar in relation to Claremont.

    The type of vehicle was only identified in the last couple of years, thanks to forensic testing in subsequent reviews. If my memory is correct, the original macro team actually "lost" the boot fibres and they were only found years and years later.

    It's kind of outrageous if you think about it, the one in the middle of the lawn does not move for about 4 years. Every photo it's in an identical spot diagonally on that lawn.
    It looks essentially an identical vehicle to the one used in the reenactment of CG talking to the person in the car on Stirling highway in the CIA video.

    I may be off the mark but I really do doubt you Frankie. Two circumstances now you have placed yourself linked closely to the possible CSK as a potential witness of the abduction and now that there is an arrest as a friend of the brother of the CSK. It just seems like you're trying to get in on the center of attention but hey like I said, I could be way wrong.

    It is amazing how many similarities there are between the CSK and the BTK (also noted there are some huge differences) lets hope this guy follows BTK's lead and admits everything.

    As for the familial DNA link, does it have to be a direct link, father, brother, child or can the familial line extend to nephews also?

    It really is ridiculous. Just has it out in plain view for all those years while abducting in a similar vehicle. Pretty brazen.

    Was he actually questioned over the earlier rapes? I assume so if DNA was taken off him.
    Seems weird hes allowed to work with children at all if he was ever on record for anything

    If they don't have SS in the next 48 hours, you could conclude that he's not confessing.

    The channel must have been taken down just recently. It was up yesterday afternoon and there were only 2 gaming videos. I can't remember the exact name of the games he was showing, but the game's name was 3 letters followed by the number 3. Most of the videos he "liked" were of random street fights and fight compilations. I wish I'd kept a screenshot now.

    There has been nothing in the news about the police having his DNA until they got it from him after his arrest.

    Easy pickings. Lots of attractive, drunk young women wandering around in the dark streets at closing time and loads of places to park and then ounce.

    I don't think so. I know nothing about gaming. It was some sort of shooting game where people were talking to each other. I know what WOW is, and it wasn't that either.

    I just find it interesting that someone (BE) who was a member of a computer hobby group, knew a decent amount about computers (solved a pc problem on whirlpool) and was he administrator of a couple of websites has left very little in regards to an online footprint over the years. googling both his known username and email bring up very little online history. Other usernames maybe?

    Electrical Engineer, possibly went to UWA?

    Most UWA students are familiar with Claremont and surroundings - perhaps why he chose it. Familiarity without being close to home.

    Yes, that's true. Maybe he felt it was safer to keep the car (if the one that stayed on the lawn for four years was the CSK vehicle) in his possession, since nobody knew about it for so long.

    Normally, people who commit crimes tend to dispose of as much evidence as possible though. Perhaps he also kept it as a 'souvenir' of his secret life?

    Just speculation on my part.
