  1. Funny, the video of the grandfather has the SAME kinds of comments on it, i.e. he looks just like the killer, he sounds the same, he knows more than he is saying. Geez!

  2. The man in the picture ain't came forward all this time he must of killed them two little girl's or he have knowledge of it

  3. The property owner may look similar, but I believe he is much older than the suspect in the picture.  Physically, I don't believe he could have done it.  I think he would have been arrested by now if that was he case.  I believe the suspect to be between 25 and 35.  I hope they find this murderer soon so the families can have some closure.

  4. Property owner is very nervous but trying to hide it!! He stutters when talking about his son playing all around in the area when he was young! I believe he needs to be interrogated for several hours! He wouldn't hold up if he's guilty and HE DOES ACT SUSPICIOUS!!!!

  5. Are some of the posters on this particular forum opening themselves up to potential lawsuits by accusing certain people of this crime?

  6. The most important "distinct" feature of this killer is that he has a "duck walk",
    meaning his toes are pointed to the outside when he walks. His duck walk is quite
    severe in that his feet point about 45 degrees to the outside, which distinguishes
    him significantly from other suspects. Look at his planted "right foot" and you
    can clearly see this. His left leg is in stride, but the toes are pointed to the outside.
    This is only common in about 4 % of the population. If this is indeed the killers
    photo they have put out to the public- police should look at his walk. ( important)
    I'd also add, rails are about 7 inches above ground level so I'd estimate his
    height at 5-9 to 5-10, and weighing around 235 lbs- with a beer belly- 42-48 yrs old.

  7. Yeah, I'd like to know all about his son whom he references, saying that he played around there all his life. His son would be very familiar with the area.

  8. So ridiculous and despicable at how many people are just throwing guesses and accusations out to arrest this land owner because they "think" he looks similar to a photo. Stop trying to be an ignorant armchair detective. This is not a movie, it unfortunately is a horrific real event. Don't make it worse by accusing people randomly with absolutely no evidence. This poor gentleman looks in shock that this happened on his property. He is acting just like a shocked and horrified person. Shame on all you for pointing fingers like a witch hunt.

  9. In 2011, he was arrested for a DUI, and endangering a person – felonious arrest. This dude violated his probation in 2014. At that time, he was ordered to have a mental health evaluation, as well as a substance abuse evaluation. He was arrested again. As the interviews progress with this guy (never mind he talks about all the hullaballoo, how they had his place all lit up, apathetic in general) he starts out wearing a blue jacket, then blue hoodie under a green jacket, then just a green jacket. He also says that someone would've had to force them back there because the landscape was unforgivable. He has not been given bond. I think the police are digging, and found cause to arrest this guy

  10. This is the murderer the old guy his voice sound exactly like killer and a search warrant just served at. His house

  11. Have they released the cause of death to the public? The deaths of these two girls are being labled a homicide but did they release information on the manner of death?

  12. also weird bit of info Abigail Williams was the same name as one of the girls from the salem witch trials im sure it has no similarity with case just a weird lil fact

  13. In this interview you will notice the moment the property owner realizes it is his son who did it. He is 74 years old so his son would most probably be 20 years younger. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WC_YUvEkWJM

  14. Why are authorities including the FBI just now searching this property? A month later, evidence could be gone or damaged by that time.

  15. I find it increasingly hard to believe it is a drifter or someone from out of town. Seems like the suspect would have knowledge of the area. A lot of people want it to be some boogey man but often it is a neighbor or someone that has been around the area for even decades, and who seemed quiet, harmless and even willing to speak to the media.

  16. I've heard people saying "it couldn't be Ron Logan, he's 77 years old, he couldn't walk up or "Down the hill". Check him out @ 1:35 into thIs video… Seems he CAN and does walk up and "DOWN THE HILL".

  17. Everyone had this guy nailed! Great work whoever decided to get the guy identified this way! Be thrilled when he's behind bars, but I still think someone was with him.

  18. Ron walking has the same gait as the suspect in grainy photo of man on bridge. If Logan is deliberately disguising his true voice someone he knows from stores etc. will know it! Maybe this old geezer when psychotic / paranoid & killed those girls out of fear & paranoia! I detect nervousness & paranoia in Ron Logan

  19. Does Mr Logan wear contacts ? He could have covered his face with the hoodie and hunkered down . If it was him on the bridge? I am not convinced.

  20. Why every Men in this town are using this camouflage cap?
    The same as the one used by the guy in the video.
    Don't believe me? Search for other videos.

  21. could he be wearing the same hat as the person in the photographs? at least it looks like a camouflage pattern hat?

  22. I notice from the photo on the bridge the suspect has an usual crease in left pant leg, like a long object hidden.

  23. look at 207 He got green like belt or something between jacket below neck. he got something hanging in side jacket

  24. Naw. I don't think the owner killed the girls. It is not that easy, to catch a gang of killers so quickly. Disappointing we can't find him by now…six months later

  25. Like come on nobody seen this guy in a small town….or seen anybody strange in the days before like somebody they never seen ……its either a drifter highly unlikely or somebody knows the person personally and can't bring them self too call the police….just remember God is always watching what's done in the dark shall be brought into the light…..its sad that two little girls had too lose their life ……..and I hope who ever us protecting thus scumbag I hope you feel the pain of the family's everyday of your life…….
