    These guys may be linked to the missing Santa Ana women and the gal murdered in Anaheim. I decided to make a new thread:

    There is so little info on these two. Here's an article from today though: http://touch.latimes.com/#section/1780/article/p2p-79912861/

    From what I can gather, these two met as registered sex offenders and cut off their ankle bracelets and fled the state. They were rearrested and had to give DNA samples (although shouldn't that's have been done already?)

    I think their DNA was found on Estepp's body and someone may have confessed.
    Presser is today at 4 I think.

    Another article posted on Martha's thread: http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?section=news/local/orange_county&id=9501827

    This case hits close to home. I live in Anaheim and am from and was raised in Santa Ana where my mom still lives.

    Thank you for starting this thread, Gitana!

    This hits close to home for me, as well...

    We have lived either close by or in Santa Ana for many years...

    And are often in the city and neighboring cities for various reasons...

    (O/T.... But my DD just graduated from a college in Santa Ana in January! :rocker:

    ETA... In fact the college is located on First Street... Not far from where one of the perps was arrested...:eek:)

    Press Conference is at 4pm in Anaheim PD Training auditorium. No on camera interviews are planned. Here is the PD press release:

    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?....94876086133.89459.92994316133&type=1&theater

    Hoping someone in CA will catch the presser broadcast live on TV, and give us an update.

    ETA: Interesting comment on the police FB page, re where they may live, considering media's reporting the men as transients.

    Just watched the presser on ABC7. The suspects will be arraigned tomorrow on four counts of rape and murder. Possible that DA will seek the death penalty. Didn't get to hear all of the presser as KABC7 switched over to another news story.

    They keep quoting AnayA's mom as saying they found her body. I think it's clear someone talked.

    Sick human beings. I felt so bad for these women and their families and I'm sure glad to see the police haven't dropped the ball.

    Were they incredibly brazen? Or just plain dumb?

    Police: OC murder suspects wore GPS devices during killings (updated)

    Vile humans...sub-humans.
    Prayers for their victims and the families.

    2 male SK's working together must be pretty rare...

    Isn't there a young woman who was supposed to get a train down to San Diego who just vanished? I can't recall her name, but I think she's still missing. I wonder how many more from here are victims of these 2.

    And they were in Vegas for a while, too.

    I think it is interesting that these guys were in Vegas in April 2012 and that one of their victims, Kianna Jackson, was from Vegas and disappeared in California in October 2013. Made me wonder if they met her in Vegas and she followed them west. If so, this could have happened to any number of women from around the country. All of the victims were younger women and all had history of prostitution. I bet there were others with similar profiles who disappeared since April 2012

    I have put together a quick time line from this article. Please feel free to copy and paste and add to it:

    http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2014/apr/14/authorities-say-parolees-outfitted-gps-track/

    1992 Gordon convicted of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14. 2002 Gordon has kidnapping conviction

    2008 Cano convicted of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14

    May 8, 2012, Gordon and Cano arrested together in LV after a two-week stay at Circus Circus Hotel & Casino

    October 2013, body of Kianna Jackson, 20, of Las Vegas found in California

    October 24 2013 Josephine Monique Vargas, 34 last seen

    November 12 2013 Martha Anaya last seen

    14 March 2014 Jarrae Nykkole Estepp's body found in Anaheim

    11 April 2014 Stephen Dean Gordon, 45, and Franc Cano, 27 Arrested

    No. Nothing. But the mother of Marta Anaya is quoted as talking about finding her body. Specifically about finding her but she never thought it would be her body.

    Is it this gal? Tina Hoang, had prostitution charges pending, had been living in, wait for it... Las Vegas, Nevada, found dead on the beach at Newport Beach in March 2013. She had pending charges out of ANAHEIM. http://articles.latimes.com/2013/mar/07/local/la-me-0308-newport-body-20130308

    ETA: Oops! I see the gal you are talking about is still missing. This one is not.
