    On the last page of the court-tv article it says:



    [​IMG][​IMG]
    "Dave" the Buffalo rapist/killer on left, Suspect in the abduction of Molly Bish, in Warren, Mass, in 2000, on right.

    Smile22 they do look eeriely similar! Apparently this is a common face! The Buffalo police have tested over 60 people by DNA, and not one of them is the killer. Its hard to believe that this face is so common!

    I also reviewed the description of the Buffalo suspect and there is no mention that he's a smoker. He may be and its a piece of information that hasn't yet been released.

    Maybe he didn't stop in the intervening years... maybe he just moved to another State. Perhaps his job requires travel?

    The buffalo rapist hasn't hit since 1994... Molly was taken in 2000... I wonder if there are other states who have the same kind of sketch of a suspect? Maybe he didn't stop in the intervening years... maybe he just moved to another State. Perhaps his job requires travel?

    Good Sleuthing!

    Wow. I just saw the 48 Hours about Molly Bish yesterday and didn't even realize. It appears that some people think Molly's disppearance is tied to another girl named Holly's. I missed a lot of that part of the show, but she looked much younger in her photos so I don't know how compelling I find that link.

    What jumped out at me first, as far as a timeline, is that the Buffalo guy has always struck between May and October. This coincides with snowbird season in Florida, which runs from November to April. Just a thought.

    I live about 25 minutes from Buffalo and it sure did take my attention. I hope someday they find this guy, because you hate to think crimes like that can go unpunished.

    The statute of limitations has run out on the rapes, so unfortunately even if he was caught tomorrow they couldn't do anything about it.... BUT there is NO statute of limitations on the murder.

    I encountered him on the Amherst Bike Path, in the early 2000's. He was on a bicycle, dressed in dark clothing, and wearing a bicycle helmet. He glared at me with such anger, I thought he must be a plainclothes policeman working on the case, who was angry at me for jogging alone. However, when he was apprehended and I asked a relative of a victim of his about my encounter, I was told that there were no police assigned to the bike path and that this was consistent with how Sánchez stalked the path. Creepy.

    That poor innocent man, Anthony Capozzi, who spent TWO DECADES in prison for Sanchez's crimes due to faulty witness identification and similar blood type.

    In all fairness, according to two documentaries the BPD botched the case. Sanchez was on their radar in the 70's, in fact he worked at a factory which was very close to where some of the early crimes were committed, and it had been confirmed a relative's vehicle had been parked near one of the crime scenes, had the tag info from an eyewitness. Why they didn't surveil this guy from early on, is anyone's guess.
