The police have never come out with that proposition regarding March 1996 it was only the media. The police were not able to place him in WA prior March 1996 is only because they couldn't place him in WA prior to that. The UK detectives used the word 'peripatetic' which means 'traveling from place to place, in particular working at various places for relatively short periods'. This is supported by the evidence of his employment history in the UK. They also stated that because of this peripatetic habit he was able to hide his true self from his circle of 'friends'. He used so many aliases and names it could well be that they're not even aware of all of the names he used. I think we will find that when Dixie 1st started working in WA that is when they could positively put him in WA - he was a cunning as a fox and knew how to lay low. He was wanted in NSW on theft charges prior to his sorte to WA. The WA police stated he didn't possess an Australian drivers license so were unable to track him and they assumed because he didn't have a licence that he didn't drive but he did drive a vehicle because he was using a vehicle when he sexually assaulted the woman near Bunbury which was the reason he was deported in 1999. He had driven past her the drove back to her. Well he got into Australia on a false passport so who knows if he did in fact possess an Australian drivers licence? The WA police also said it wasn't Dixie because Dixie always applied 'his trade' in his own neighbourhood. Well if Dixie was attached to the OBH (and I am certain he was) then that was his neighbourhood. That doesn't stack up for me because it is well known serial killers also change the way they operate. This brings me back to my discussion the other day when I wrote that in my opinion WA police had missed looking at the OBH they only looked at the Claremont precinct. With all the girls taken after midnight shows me he was working before that time of day or perhaps in the company of others and had made arrangements with Sarah and Jane to meet up outside the hotel or club. With the dumpsites he had chosen which were both on the edge of the metropolitan area shows me he chose those sites because he wasn't comfortable travelling outside of those areas. His pattern places him well and truly in WA for Sarah's abduction. He was incarcerated in UK in 1988 and had not been to Australia then so he is definitely not responsible for Julie Cutler. I have someone else most likely for her abduction. Her family announced that one of the detectives had put that proposition to them and we know what their investigations was like in the early days don't we! The lead (extremely) senior detective in charge of the Bowman case in the UK stated that he could not believe that Dixie had not murdered in Australia and he has not altered his opinion on that to this day.
