Here it is March 23, two days away from the anniversary of the Lyon girls disappearance. So I start to think about what was going on. What goes on this time of year. Spring begins, more folks are outside. Children are allowed more freedom. It is also time for Easter in some years. This year Easter is still a ways off, but in 1975, March 25 fell on Easter week. Tuesday, 5 days before Easter. I wonder if the timing of this abduction had anything to do with Easter, or Easter week. I wonder if the abductor had any spiritual ties? More specifically any Catholic or Episcopal, or Lutheran ties. As I think these are the only Christian denominations that emphasize Lent, and then focus on Easter week and the events leading to Easter. There is Maunday Thursday, Good Friday, Saturday, and then Easter. Christians believe the death of Jesus on Good Friday represents a sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins. I just wonder if this abductor had any background with these teachings, and had some misconstrued/misguided thoughts about it all. The girls were taken on a Tuesday, but they could have survived until Friday. I am just trying to think of the significance, if any, this abduction may have had to the abductor. Or rather the timing of the abduction for the abductor. Was this a religious or spiritual person?? This idea at first seems shocking, but BTK was a council member in a Lutheran church, stranger things have happened. . .
