for some reason, a case that i saw on ID the other day just popped into my mind. there was a murder and rape that was committed by a man who's older brother committed almost the exact same crime (right down to the number of times the victim was stabbed - near 100). the younger brother was 8 at the time his brother committed his crime. for years afterward, the younger brother got into trouble for small things, and then all of a sudden, he committed the crime so similar to his brother. they think he did it to try to show that he was smarter than his older brother. it took a very long time to convict him because he was pretty smart & knew what LE would be doing to try to "trap" him into confessing. anyway - it makes me wonder if these 2 perps in this case might be brothers? one teaching the other? maybe the 18 year old (or both) has/have family ties to someone who has done something like this before?
