    This area just keeps popping out to me, JMO.

    http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state_parks/jam.shtml

    But, one would think one wouldn't want such a public dumping site? So, obviously not one of the touristy type areas or one frequented by rangers, maintenance, etc... (just thinking out loud)...

    He could have missed his appointment, or tested positive for pot or other illegal substances then. (They call it "my colors came up" here. :floorlaugh:) We don't know yet, but we will.

    **Why does my keyboard delete stuff when I am typing and move my hand?? Danged laptop, think I should disable that pad thingy.

    Sigh. Since no one seems to want to go over to the thread where we are supposed to be discussing this, I will copy my post over to here.

    Note the address listing as Ruckersville. I wonder when he moved to Lovingston? That in itself could have caused the parole violation if he moved and didn't tell his officer

    Hopefully TES and has been able to recover their stolen equipment and stolen funds (I know some money was rasied). I'm not sure if they are able to take cases right now. Will ask what the deal is when I talk to Tim.

    IMO ... Keeping national and state parks in mind is a good idea...

    I have read about many people going missing mysteriously in parks such as these...

    Just a point of clarification. We do not have parole here in Virginia---it was abolished in 1995 so any offenders convicted after 1995 have no opportunity for parole. Randy Taylor was on probation, which is different. The fact that they have charged him with a probation violation will help keep him in jail one way or the other.

    Clue, you got me thinking...

    In Kathlynn Sheperds case, she was found by a bridge (might be worth looking at bridges in the areas).

    Also, Klunder worked in the "plant" and brought his victims there....well, RAT has lots of ties to cars with regard to his occupations (repo, car wash, painting, mechanic)...there might be a strong link to garages. Maybe a garage building with a false wall or basement area? (I'm sure LE is on this, every place he's ever worked). I'm guessing this guy might have his own "garage workshop" somewhere??

    If RAT is a methhead, I'm guessing one of his meth buddies knows something.

    Yep, that issue was because of my exhausted typing and keyboarding issues.
    I corrected it above. Sometimes the brain sees one thing and types another.

    Here's another thing I'm interested in: Past serial killers, and the distance from their homes to their external dumping ground, (if they had one and didn't toss their victims in various locations or use their own homes).

    Maybe some of you out there knowledgeable in serial killers can contribute something here (again, much research required here on my part).

    I know some serials used their own basements, yards, etc., but any other cases where an external property was used? If so, what types of locations were these, and how far from their residence / work? (I believe someone mentioned cemeteries upstream). TIA

    1. Investigators are responding to claims made by Randy Taylor's attorney. His attorney said that the only evidence investigators have is a piece of hair found in Taylor's camper. Investigators are saying they have more evidence than just that piece of hair. They will not say what that evidence may be.

    2. Investigators confirm again that they have found multiple cell phones during their search. They say these cell phones were found at more than one location. Some have been sent to Quantico for testing to see if any of them belong to Alexis.

    3. Investigators say the recent national media attention did bring an increased number of tips.

    4. Despite the command post being closed, Investigators say all three main agencies (FBI, Nelson County Sheriff's Department, and State Police) are still actively searching for Alexis.

    I am waiting for answers to several other questions that I have asked. As soon as I get more details I will pass them along.

    Another question, sorry for the multiple posts, for those of you who are knowledgeable in the psychological profiling of serials, does RAT strike you as the sort who would take trophies and/or revisit his victims? Because if he is a "revisitor", chances are Alexis and Samantha would be somewhat close? It would be interesting to have LE's GPS tracking info from when they were tailing him in Samantha's case.

    While researching past threads... I came across, once again, this article reporting that LE found "several items of interest" in AM's car...

    I just wanted to remind us that this may be a good source of evidence, as well...

    Again, thinking out loud....Virginia Beach is a distance, but RAT has some history with the area and possible family ties there.

    As I mentioned there have been a BOATLOAD of recent attempted abductions there (I learned this in another case)...I also learned here, though, that VB is a very high crime, dangerous area in general.

    VB is on my radar today. JMO.

    I don't know if mileage is available for all. Most kill and dump within a few miles, but there are the travelers that dump via convenience. The thing that sticks out most is it is usually an area familiar to the killer. They have seen it, been there before. It is impossible to know for the travelers where those places may be. In this situation, you may be on to something, but I *think* and could be very, very wrong, that LE starts with a 10 mile circular radius of the perp's home and job, then works outward from there with whatever they find out about the perp and places visited.

    Someone will correct me and provide a study if they have it. I merely have years of reading about them, but a lot of that reading is junk, not actual facts, just books (true crime doesn't count, it is still fiction), books by the attorney that represented, documentaries, docudramas (more fiction), and interviews.

    I can't remember but:
    Did he destroy their GPS unit when LE came to retrieve it?
