Let's just say the murderer no longer has 695 Facebook friends. The unfriending has begun.
I have a lot of catching up to do since the news broke.
Can anyone tell me if they announced where or if he had been hiding in seminole for sure? Or if he always headed back to the same spot as they had suspected? (Heard some chatter about the abandon house-was that confirmed?)
And also have they mentioned if he used a vehicle on nights in question or any mode of transportation aside from his feet?
Any mention of his choice of escape routes each time or other video LE has has and not released this whole time?
Do we know for sure that he did not know any of the vics? Has his family commented publicly?
Lastly, now that this is over...has LE released the details of the info that they had been keeping private this whole time (other than ballistics).
Was there more leads or evidence that they had? Other tips on this guy in particular?
Its helpful for future cases to see how departments work and what strategies they use ie. what was kept private other than ballistics.
Just a side note--- i wonder how many cases were made from tips that came in on other people. I bet seminole is the safest its been in a while. Seems like they have locked up quite a few people since this began

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/cri...s-owning-gun-tampa-killings-article-1.3665199Former St. John's University basketball player admits to owning gun used in Tampa serial killings
A former St. Johns University basketball player arrested in the slayings of four Tampa residents has admitted to owning the gun used in the killings, cops said Wednesday.
Howell (Trai) Donaldson III, 24, was taken into custody Tuesday night in connection with the murder spree that sent ripples of fear through the Florida coastal city.
It will bw interesting to see if and who he was talking to on the way to kill BM. Cant wait for those phone records. Im also dying to know exactly how monica ended up in that vacant lot for 2 days, if LEs timeline of that was correct and if he will confess to other murders that they havent connected.I was looking at the map, and if he hid in the family's abandoned house, he would have had to run to one of two bridges over the river between the neighborhoods that are not super close to seminole heights. But a B-ball player could do that. maybe he got on a bus?
Maybe he was checking the real time bus schedule on his phone before killing his victims so he could catch the bus to escape.
“As you can imagine, I am overwhelmed and surprised by yesterday’s events and I understand why many are interested in speaking with me. At this time, I am speaking exclusively with police and am appreciative that they were nearby and quickly acted upon the information I discovered and shared with the police officer. I am also appreciative of the outpouring of support from the community. My thoughts are focused on the victims and their families and out of respect for them and the active investigation, please direct inquiries to the Tampa Police Department.”
This is the employee's words....It was TB police.
That is very strange then. It's as if he wanted that employee to get the reward.

22 is typically the earliest most will graduate. However, most college students take longer than 4 years to graduate now. Plus, we don't know if he began college right at 18. Shifting majors, having to work while in school, and other reasons tend to make the average completion more like 5 or 6 years.He is 24 years old and was gone several years to college. I doubt if his family had the need to think about his comings and goings.
I imagine one graduates at age 21 or so from college. What was he doing for those three years?
The average time to get a 4 year degree is now more than 5 years. He actually went to college for 5 1/2 years.A worker cannot cash his check? Weird.
BTW, McDonalds is a company that pays a lot if you advance up the ladder there. Flipping burgers is not the only option.
I wondered if he did computer work for them, but I guess not.
I wonder why it took six years for him to go through college. If he got no scholarships, the collge bill must be huge.
Did he have big loans to pay back?

Do you happen to know if a "lack of empathy" is independent to other mental disorders or is it commonly associated with someone who lets say is a true psychopath?
Not sure I am asking the question properly.
I guess what I am trying to find out is if it is common that a psychopath would commonly also lack empathy or is the lack of empathy an independent condition that can appear with or without other mental disorders?
