You can find it in the media thread post number 372.
First let me say Im so sorry for the trauma the search has caused you. Im sure the outcome was a shock to all.
Do you have a feeling about if the girls crossed the creek on foot, transported away and returned, etc? Theres been so much discussion about this and Ive changed my mind a few times. TIA

Yes, they used DNA Phenotyping successfully in a double murder case in North Carolina in 2015.
This quote right here solidifies, to me, the supposed "twist" that was referenced in the beginning. The fact that they have an actual photograph of the perp, from the victim no less, is something that's not often seen. The "twist" has been speculated on ad nauseam and I honestly believe that there's nothing more to it than what he is saying here. (I know we weren't talking about that right now, but this it reminded me of previous conversations on here.)
I don’t think LE has any real idea of height or age, really...astonishing, when you have his image.
That's interesting. What case was that and is there a WS thread?
Yea, I just checked and they have his height between 5ft 6 in and 5 ft 10 in.. I They should be able to use the photography and use the distance of origin and at least come with in 2 in of accuracy. Perhaps they asked witnesses asmwell and each one say a different height.
Age is even more of a guess, based of voice and attire id say 40 to 60.
Troy and Ladonna French
This is a cold case that was very recently in the news. Nearly 3 decades old and DNA phenotyping was used to create an image of the killer. I wonder why they haven't utilized this for the Delphi murders.
Caption: The first images shows what the killer likely looks like today. The second image is him at age 25, and the third is the sketch created in 1991.
The posters on the image thread were able to determine the height based on surrounding images. That was fairly easy to do.
The voice may very well be the tricky one to nail down for certain.
The creek wasnt high at that time, but the water had to be very cold, likely just above freezing. I have a hard time thinking it was part of BGs plan to cross the creek for seclusion. IMO I think he lost control of them and the girls ran across the creek to escape towards the trail/ more people. That makes more sense to me than them being brought back to the area later that night as well. The whole thing is so confusing based on only what we know in the public.
I didnt think the terrain was hard to search during the day on 2/14... not much undergrowth and things were pretty open. I would imagine searching the night of 2/13 was far more difficult in the dark.
I know there were dogs searching on 2/14 because I had taken my dog there. They asked me if she was a trained dog for the search party. I told them no, so I was directed to go with another group. They told me they were searching w LE and dogs near the bridge starting where the girls were last known to have been. I think everyone in my search party was expecting to find them injured or lost. My thought was if they were abducted they were not going to be anywhere near the creek.
Thanks I have found the thread and this looks interesting - whole thread is only two pages long. DNA took 8 months to come back from the state lab. :frown:
Eta. Have also added the link about Parabon.
There were search warrants ussued in January, iirc.
Do we know if they were searching for a specific item(s) or were they warrants for dna?
Thanks for your input. Your theory makes sense. Thats a good point about not expecting to find the girls in the area if abducted/ foul play. Is there any other info you could share with us as to how the search unfolded. Was it organized, how the groups were divided up etc. How were you and the others informed that the girls had been located? TIA

A specific hair bauble perhaps
Another case with Phenotyping. Just for comparison of the pic vs the man.
This is the WS thread. Apprehended in 2017 - 25 years after the crime.
Do we know if those warrants were related to the murders? Are the ones you are talking about still public record?
I could never find anything related to the murders except for the subpoena connected to DN (which disappeared from public view very quickly) and the request to seal the autopsy.
Why ask FBI and GBI to look at the case with new eyes if they knew who BG was?
Doesn't make sense to me.
All I can make of it they have a general idea of the type of killer who did it, just no direct links to anyone in particular.
