The Pressly suspect

Posted By on Sun, Nov 30, 2008 at 4:52 PM

Catching up on my reading, I came across KTHV's report on Curtis Vance, the suspect in the slaying of KATV anchor Anne Pressly. We know he's a suspect in a rape during a Marianna break-in. It is not yet clear whether sexual assault was intended in the Pressly case, though several sources believe that it was. The KTHV report mentions in passing that there were a string of break-ins under investigation, including others at the home of single women.

So the question: Does a man show no proclivity for violence or rape until he is 28, then suddenly brutalize two women in a span of six months? Or might he simply have been successful at getting away with other crimes? Time will undoubtedly tell.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
