    [–] Arrested man looks similar to Delphi killing suspect - FBI notified BubbaJoeJones 58 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in UnresolvedMysteries

    Libby uploaded this photo of Abby on the bridge to Snapchat at 2:09 PM. The bridge takes three minutes to cross if you’re walking across normally, but law enforcement stated that the video recording retrieved from the cellphone captured the girls discussing “normal girl stuff,” and that they were “talking and laughing.” It’s likely that they lingered on the bridge for longer than three minutes since they took their time talking, taking photos, and uploading them to social media. The recording of the suspect is believed to have been captured while they were still on the bridge. It appears as if he’s far away because Abby and Libby were closer to the end of the bridge, whereas the suspect was closer to the start/middle of the bridge.

    There was one witness on the trail of the day of the murders, but they didn’t come forward until months later. The composite sketch is the result of the witness description.

    The photos we have of the suspect that were captured on Libby’s cellphone are actually stills from a video recording. Companies such as Disney and NASA enhanced the original still to the best of their abilities, and those two images are the only photos that law enforcement have officially released. Even though they have been enhanced, the suspect’s facial features are unrecognizable.

    Suspect photos

    [–] In 1982, 21 year old Leon Moncer received a threatening letter in his mailbox days before he disappeared. For two years after his disappearance, his wife and child were stalked by an individual, or possibly individuals, who followed them by car, and stood outside their house at night.

    The girlfriend likely remained anonymous (no sources state her name), but she did tell investigators that Leon was physically abusive towards her on occasion. Leon lived with Irene in the meantime because they had a child together, and Leon was an alleged active and seemingly overbearing figure in her life, hence not allowing Irene to take Julie out of the house without his company, and not allowing anyone to take photos of her. Whether or not Leon had plans to move out once the divorce was finalized, I don’t know.

    Thank you for the kind words.

    You’re not the only one that finds Irene’s story odd. I don’t know whether or not Irene gained any benefit, but the Charley Project says that Leon’s mother collected his life insurance policy.

    Without verification from the authorities as to whether or not she ever reported her alleged stalker, we’ll never know. Investigators often withhold certain details, and they seem almost certain that the circumstances of his disappearance are suspicious, and that possibly more than one person knows what happened.

    If she didn’t file a report, or contact the police as the man was standing outside, (and it sounds like she didn’t), then I would agree that something is off about her story. It’s possible that the alleged stalker wasn’t outside long enough for the police to arrive, and it’s also possible that even if it occurred for two years, he wasn’t there every day, and nobody could predict when he would be there next.

    However, we don’t know if the alleged stalker was there every day, week, or month. We also don’t know how long he was outside of their house before he left. I’m curious about her neighbors, too. Were any of them able to verify that they saw a man standing “in the shadows”?

    I’m still trying to find any commentary from investigators concerning the credibility of Irene’s story, or if and when they addressed it themselves, but sources are scarce. The Charley Project cited several sources, but the blogs and articles have since been removed.

    How often he watched the house is something I’m interested in as well, but sources on this case are scarce. Other important questions I’d like to have answered are whether or not Irene ever filed a police report against the alleged stalker(s), if investigators were able to confirm whether the phone call was placed from a phone booth or a personal line, etc. There’s a lot of missing details.

    [–] Warning by LE about the girls' online activity BubbaJoeJones 16 points ago in DelphiMurders

    Snapmap hadn’t been released yet. It launched July of 2017.

    [–] In 2015, 19 year old Katelin Akens was to fly from Virgina to Arizona to attend cosmetology school. Katelin was to be dropped off at the airport by her former stepfather, but she never arrived there. Her mother and fiancée received unusual and contradictory texts on the day of her disappearance.

    I looked into it further, police said that James’ story was corroborated just two days after Katelin’s disappearance, but reported that they changed their stance regarding the timeline a year later, stating that they don’t believe she ever left the Fredricksburg area. I updated the post with news reports from the day they stated his story was corroborated to the day they said they will continue to speak with James to "tighten up the timeline.” It’s still unclear why they believed his story was corroborated just days after her disappearance, and why it wasn’t reported that they were interested in his timeline until a year later.
