    What do people think of John Brennan Crutchley as a suspect in this case?

    Crutchley, the so-called "Vampire Rapist," was suspected by the FBI of being a serial killer. Wherever he went, young women disappeared but the only crime he was ever convicted of was a gruesome sexual assault in Florida wherein he nearly exsanguinated his victim before letting her go.

    His connection to the Lyons sisters is circumstantial - Crutchley was living in Fairfax County, VA at the time of their probable abduction and had roots in Montgomery County, MD. (His wife had family there.)

    At this point i think all of us here are zeroed in on Lloyd Welch (and family).

    Clearly. But in the event that Welch turns out to be a dead end, it's probably not a bad idea to take an objective look at the guy that Robert Ressler believed was responsible.

    LE is saying they know who is responsible.

    Crutchley has been discussed in the past as a Potential Suspect in the Lyon Case. See Post 22 in the Websleuths Potential Suspects and Persons of Interest Thread for the first mention of him.

    - During the mid 70's he lived in Fairfax County Va. At the time there were several disappearances of teenage girls. Some investiators suspect his linkage to the Lyon Girls & Kathy Beaty. He was extensively familiar with Montgomery County, where his second wife's family lived. He lived in Fairfax, VA in the mid 1970's. He also lived in Pa. where there were a number of missing females, & deceased females.

    - convicted kidnapper and rapist who was suspected of murdering more than 30 women, but was never tried nor convicted of those crimes. He was called the "Vampire Rapist" because he drained the blood of his victim almost to the point of death while he repeatedly sexually assaulted her.
