This incident happened on

This incident happened on April 12th...a couple more reports here on WWAY about rewards offered, etc. Today is April 23rd...nearly 2 weeks have passed. What is the latest from the WPD on this matter, or have they just not received and leads from callers giving them any????

elderly attack

I used to live on Nun Street and knew her. I dont approve of vigilantes but in this case would whole-heartedly hope "someone" finds him before the police do, and sets things right for the harm he inflicted upon this lady. A person with this total lack of regard for humanity does not deserve to live. No excuse can wipe away the hideousness of his crime.

castrate him

It makes me angry that someone out there knows who this man is. When they find him they will, he should go to prison for the rest of his life. I know some lawyer will say that this animal (that is what he is) had a bad home life. No dad or the best excuse is there was no love at home and he was mistreated. That is tough there are alot of people that had and still has a rough life and they don't go out there and do harm to people. My real feelings is that if i was on the jury he should be castrated and never ever get out of jail. If we did this to more rapists maybe just maybe there would be less rapes
