In Ann's story she mentions the normal 'control' job was finished and Julie called that in through dispatch around three. If she was able to finish the task with 'the bottle' is unsure. I would say she couldn't even start it or otherwise not finish it. If she could finish, she most probably would've called that in. She didn't get the chance anymore to call in, because head quarters only mentioned the around three normal job finished call. No more calls after that. Sheriff's Detective Mark Henderson is retired. Was to be expected. I googled him to find that out. While Googling I found this article: http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-n...f/2012/04/amateur_sleuth_says_case_of_mi.html Maybe it is already mentioned earlier in this thread, but I'm not sure. Otherwise it might be good for refresh of memory. For sure I would like other people's thoughts about what is written in the article and discuss that. In this article is mentioned a few more possible linked victims from same perp, who got Julie, than I read about here. Ann only mentions Debra Swanson. Possibly because the info about more related victims was not clear or known, when she published the story. If the same perp was involved with victim Laurie Partridge in 1974 and he would then be, let's say, 18, he now would be in his fifties. That would make it likely he's still alive, can be caught and hold responsible. Plus, he could shed light on where he left the women. I don't know anything about Laurie and I have not googled her yet. It might be possible the perp went to the same school as her and also might have been questioned. If her case with suspects would be compared to Julie's case and suspects, maybe a same name would come up. Same counts for the other cases. I'm curious if that has been done. True. Law enforcements weren't so well connected back then as is possible nowadays, which of course is a disadvantage. As you, I don't think he took the risk to watch her that long before he took the oppertunity to grab her. It seems to be more of a quick 'job'. If he wás a local, he even might have seen her somewhere before, wanted her and when he encountered her that day, alone, he took the oppertunity. This is just a loose guess, because if he saw her earlier while she wasn't working, he couldn't have known for sure it was the same person. Then he probably didn't know her profession and on the job she wore that yellow hard hat.
