    Personally I don’t see this going to trial. I think there will be a plea deal.

    Although I agree that they will most likely get a conviction, the court still has an obligation to ensure that he receives a fair trial, and I’m not sure that kind of jury could be drawn in tippecanoe county at this point.

    I’m not so sure publicity is as big an issue as it’s often thought to be. If it were considered to be, the media would be prevented from reporting on any crimes prior to trial.

    Prospective juries aren’t required to have heard nothing about any particular case, the only expectation is they’re willing to consider the proceedings with an open and impartial mind and vote to convict only if the evidence proves the accused is guilty beyond reasonable doubt. I can’t recall any case that was successfully appealed in recent history solely due to advance publicity.

    I do, and seeing her on that bridge is chilling to me.

    Nothing I want more than a fair trial (for every defendant) and hope I didn't give the impression I don't know the obligations of our legal system. I kinda got the hang of it. :)

    Agreed. There's no reason to wait on an indictment if there's anything else they know he's guilty of, especially since the case against him for crimes against the 9-year-old is so clear and evident.

    I hear ya and I get it. I just don't see Delphi in any rush since he's already in jail and standing trial elsewhere. I can envision them standing back until Lexington is complete.

    Personally, I'd like to see announcement....now. :)

    Yes, I believe they had planned to do this with the Tinsley case in Allen County before the plea deal happened.

    I would hope they don't allow that monster to plea down to anything less than the maximum possible sentence, in which case, what does he stand to gain from a plea deal?

    Agreed she does look like Libby and both she and Libby were using snapchat before their murders.

    Not having to go to trial. County jails aren’t as nice as prisons, so if he knows he’s going to prison, he may not want to sit in county lock up for 2 years.

    While I can get behind a connection with those two cases do you think JBC is the guy?

    I think there is a good chance he is responsible for Delphi but not so sure about other murders. Only time will tell.

    According to his fb page, a few months ago, he got a job for more than $20/hr and rented a house. If this was true, his employer obviously didn’t run a background check, and neither did his landlord. It appears that he was homeless before then.

    how interesting, thanks!! It will be good to know how true this all is! he got a good paying job ... with what employer? and he rented a house ... at what address? If true should be easy enough to figure out., those Qs’ answers are matter of public record. If not true that he got high-paying job and/or rented house .... well they say everyone is a invented character on SM, right?

    IMO I don’t look at SM but I hear BJC presents effectively as too likable to be BG .... or at least not homeless bum. Here is potential rabbit hole into how fake his SM life is.... JMO just speculating if this info did come out, MOO

    I haven’t read that, but it would make sense. I don’t know of any landlords who would rent to someone with his criminal record and gaps in employment.
