    Gosh I hate that photo of him. He almost looks like he's smirking. What an evil man.

    I wonder if there are additional victims of ligature strangulation committed by this *** and his cronies? Seems to be his preferred method of murder.

    I sincerely hope the families of the victims get the justice they deserve!

    Want a real eye opener, go to Crime Pursuit podcast and scroll down to Ray Hanish. It's Ray's Mother and Sister explaining the connection to Nicole and her murder. It explained way more than I ever expected to hear. "Oh what a tangled web we weave"

    This is quite a mess, that's for sure.

    They haven't even filed charges against him yet.

    If he confessed as they say he did do they file charges or just charge him?

    Hopefully the photo you're referring to isn't the victims photo, Ray Hanish.

    Oh no- I should have clarified.:( The photo I was referring to is the one in the article posted of the suspect in the orange jumpsuit. (If you scroll down under the heading "THE CONNECTION, THE TIMELINE"). My sincere apologies; I should have been more clear.

    I was sure you meant that picture of Kirts in orange. The picture of Ray with the cat on his shoulder is lovely. So I'm posting it again.

    That's a good question.

    My guess is when they charge him, they have to file it in court. We'll see what happens when he goes to court on Nicole's murder charge.
