    Interesting that you are saying distance isn't much of an issue as there has been a man in the South East, Brighton area who has been hanging around a local cemetery flashing at people in the last few weeks. Also reports of someone hiding up on the South Downs. I am trying to get some more info by joining some forums.

Also reports of someone hiding up on the South Downs staring at dog walkers. I am just trying to gather all the information.

    I'm going for two different perps, with different motivations. However, I really like your thoughts and reasoning.

    I think the JJ perp is probably someone with some kind of psychosis issues. I don't think that's the case with the MR attacker, I think this one had a clear motive and knew exactly what they were doing and why.

    Some additional information I've gathered from the original photo on the police website - note this could be wrong depending on how the photo has been processed after capture but I assume the police will be showing the highest possible resolution for maximum detail although I may be wrong.

    This may give some context in terms of how it was taken - i.e. even though it looks like a close up, it probably isn't:

    You can clearly see digital artefacts in the photo that confirm this is quite zoomed / cropped

    Photo is relatively low resolution 225 x 370 pixels suggesting it is heavily cropped / digitally zoomed

    A modern mobile phone takes photos around 4000 x 3000 pixels (12 megapixels) so this image would be only less than 5% of a full size mobile phone photo.

    If it was body worn video camera the resolution would probably be 1920 x 1080 so again suggesting this is heavily cropped - about 10-20% of the full image.

    Examples below of how big the original image could have been to help give context to the photo

    Super helpful to get a sense of how zoomed in this is. I find it interesting that most of the MSM are using the cropped version of the pic without his blue Nike bag, it's actually quite hard to find a full length version of the pic... I wonder if this is just because it fits better with the format of online new articles or whether two versions were released.

    The South Downs National Park area covers around 630 square miles, so I'm sure there are lots of people hiding out there tbf!

    Do you think the police have a full body head to foot image,but are only releasing his face and upper body?

    Looking at the sky and light can anyone work out what time of day it was taken?

    Have trawled through an awful lot of emotional articles in the British Press, but, didn't seem to find much real information. Hope something will come from cell phone analysis.

    We are only barely 18 months after Lindsay Birbeck, a random murder.

    It’s not so hard to imagine it’s the case here again ...

    I wonder if the photo released is of one of the 'multiple persons' who discovered the body? Maybe he was the first person there, and left the scene before the police came along, then someone else saw him subsequently and took the pic, and the other people who found the body have identified him as being there?
    That would explain a few things, including the releasing of the photo.

    tell me if I’m wrong but I thought I read the picture was taken the day after Julia was found ?

    It depends upon how yo use it.
    It's excellent for academia and criminology.
    But necessary to edit and report violating accounts frequently. That's work but it's worth doing.
    You will also find new information quickly, valuable info that won't make MSM.
    I love it but I take no prisoners.

    Agree - far more helpful to have the pic showing the bag

    I know it can be useful but the bad outweighs the good IMO, so I tend to avoid it, certainly on things like this case (and football).

    Absolutely! Why publish a picture that LE have released to get information from the public, and then crop half of it out? MSM I mean, it was the full picture on the police website.
