    another article:

    "Detectives say on July 2, 1981 the 6-year-old boy left his house on his bike to go to a fireworks stand in Anaheim. A short time later, his parents found his abandoned bike in an alley. The next day, the boy's body was found by two construction workers in Pomona. The Coroner's Office determined the child had died of asphyxia due to strangulation. Police say DNA evidence links the crime to Kenneth Rasmuson. "

    Former Santa Barbara man charged in 2 cold cases
    October 26, 2015

    [...]
    On Friday, prosecutors said that DNA evidence also ties Rasmuson to the 1986 murder of 6-year-old Miguel Antero.

    On April 8, 1986, Antero was reported missing. He was last seen outside his Agoura Hills home. Deputies later found Antero’s body in a nearby creek. The boy had been sexually assaulted, stabbed and strangled.

    The courts have convicted Rasmuson twice before for violent sexual assaults against children.

    I don't understand why this POS was free when he killed Miguel - and for so many years after. It seems he may have been a juvenile offender the first time? He wasn't fixed, obviously. How many more victims did he have?

    ANYONE who kills a child should NEVER go free. How can anybody think these types of criminals have served enough time , and are thus "safe" to let loose on society ?
    :moo:

    Rest and fly with the angels, Miguel !

    Miguel was definitely not this monster's only victim:

    http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-convicted-sex-offender-arrested-20150328-story.html

    For more than three decades, the 1981 slaying of 6-year-old Jeffrey David Vargo of Anaheim remained unsolved.
    The boy had been strangled and his body left behind a pile of sand at a Pomona construction site.
    In 1997, Pomona police confirmed that they had reopened the case. Again the case went nowhere.



    RIP Jeffrey David Vargo

    Poor little babies. Have to wonder how many other murders this freak will be tied to.
