    He has lost so much weight in a few months.
    I wonder if he isn't obtaining enough food.
    Could it be, that we have not been informed that he is extremely ill?
    I guess, the stress of being locked up, may cause this appearance.
    MOO.

    Well at least him getting cleared of Donna Jo's Murder, helps the family knowing the right man has been in jail the entire time.

    I'd say regardless if your guilty or not being in the spotlight, jail, and possible mental illness takes a toll. Then again I kind of wonder if being in the wheelchair is all an act and stuff is all an act. They were saying right before they nailed him, he was running around like a 40 or 50 year old.

    I think you are correct in thinking it's all an act- it's like the glasses that the defense puts on the murderer's face- a con, IMO. On women, to look like a librarian, and on men, to look like an intellectual dork....:rolleyes:

    California police use genealogy websites to arrest suspect in 1990s rapes

    A California man has been arrested in connection to rapes committed in the 1990s after his DNA was linked to the crime scenes through commercial genealogy websites, which initially turned up both the suspect and his twin, police said on Friday.
    Kevin Konther, 53, was taken into custody on Thursday at his home in Southern California and booked on suspicion of rape, kidnapping and child sexual abuse, Orange County Sheriff's spokeswoman Carrie Braun said. One of the victims was nine years old at the time of the attack.

    Konther was identified as a suspect by sheriff's detectives using techniques similar to those used in recent years to help solve a number of older crimes. Last year, a 73-year-old former police officer was arrested over the 'Golden State Killer' string of murders and rapes across California in the 1970s and 1980s.
    In investigating the 1990s rapes, which were committed in Orange County, investigators working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation compared DNA samples collected at two crime scenes to that found on the websites used by consumers to trace their ancestry, Braun said.

    Detectives use the sites to follow the family trees of matches, seeking blood relatives who roughly fit the profile of the suspected criminal.

    Both Konther and his twin brother were taken into custody on Thursday before investigators identified Konther as the suspect and released his brother, who has not been publicly identified, Braun said. She declined to name the website used or the family member whose DNA led to the suspect.
    Konther was being held in lieu of $1 million bail pending an initial court appearance scheduled for Monday, where he will be arraigned on two counts of felony rape, oral copulation on a child under the age of 14, lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14 and aggravated sexual assault.
