    good, they continue to investigate the 12 claims
    Agent Huckstadt still on the stand this morning. Said the FBI can't corroborate 13 victims claims, but that's "not the same as saying it's completely impossible. We're continuing to investigate. " (

    1. Christensen boasted to his girlfriend he had killed 13 women. But that statement is the only evidence of any additional murders beyond Yinying Zhang

      Testimony is underway in the second week of the #BrendtChristensen trial. An FBI agent said it's "not impossible" Christensen is responsible for the disappearance of 19 women in Wisconsin. But there is no evidence tying him to those crimes

    1 hour ago, Aaron Eades (@WCIA3Eades) on Twitter

    Online conversation showed between BC and another user— BC messaged them because they posted about a “rape/kidnapping” fetish. BC was interested in playing that out with them

    BC tells them he has an idea of how he’d do it— breaking into their house, binding and gagging the user, then putting them into a duffel bag and into his car, where he’d take them to a motel for sex

    This is how I believe he got her into the apartment .... but .... Could he have taken her to a motel first?

    I want company becuase then instead of becoming a sociopath I am in a good mood and have a good time with someone,” BC’s texted his girlfriend @WCIA3
    “Fading into nothingness is the default for most people. If you want to know what terrifies me, it’s that. I will not fade away. I refuse. I don’t care how I am remembered. Just that I am,” he texts his girlfriend @WCIA3

    ...I would rather destroy humanity than let that happen,” he texts her. He also says he feels like people who look at him are afraid of that, and he’s bothered by it. “I don’t want fear,” he texts her @WCIA3

    Prosecutors spent the last hour or so giving a detailed look into Christensen's digital life - his texts, browsing history and social media postings - in the weeks before and after Yingying Zhang disappeared

    1. Christensen researched several serial killers and sought to set up an "abduction/rape fantasy" through a website called http://*********** "I'm looking for someone like you," he wrote in response to a posting from a woman about her kidnapping and rape fetish

      The day #YingyingZhang seen getting into the Astra, he texts girlfriend, “You don’t do the anything casual thing. From breathing, to fine dining to...murder.” The ‘fine dining and breathing’ quip is possibly a reference to a quote from a SpongeBob Squarepants episode @WCIA3

    The last text message the FBI forensic analyst testifies that BC sent to TB before #YingyingZhang was abducted is “You’re unique and in a weird, unique situation. It makes you my kitten,” @WCIA3

    Meanwhile TB indicates to him that she’s off to “indulge in my frostiness” with another guy. Michelle texted Brendt throughout the afternoon, but the FBI redacted those messages so the court doesn’t know what they are @W

    here's the research paper on decomposition (far as I recall this was downloaded in February '17)
    1. Christensen also downloaded a research paper titled "Beyond the grave" about human decomposition and read several Fetlife posts about: "abduction play," "perfect abduction fantasy" and "abduction 101"

      On the morning of the kidnapping, Christensen checked his email and went on Reddit. He sent a text to his girlfriend that evening saying "I'm exhausted" and another stating "Just tired lol."
