A Short Friday


One thing I keep coming back to is the time of Amy's abduction: around 2:45 PM on a Friday afternoon. What sort of grown man is out of work at that time? Maybe Amy's abductor didn't have a steady job (painting, perhaps...or freelance work of some kind). But if he did, he would have to have had a job where he was done by 2:30PM or else a job where he wouldn't be missed. A job that keeps him close to kids. A mailman, perhaps. Or maybe, just maybe, a school crossing guard.

I've always liked this photo, from a Sun News article that ran in 1989. I've often wondered if the photograher framed his photo to include the mug shot.

More on this, soon, I think.
