Doesn’t seem this suspect was on the sex offender registry. Couldn’t have been him then.

Asked for why Heinrich was called a “person of interest” instead of a “suspect,” Sanner said, “I think we’ve given you enough information today … for you to draw your own conclusions. We are not labeling.”

This sounds like exactly what they are doing. What would be the point of releasing “non-facts” and making a statement if they weren’t trying to manipulate the public in some fashion?? It’s a basic writer’s strategy: give just enough vague info so the “reader” can draw their own conclusions.

This way they still have something to charge and ruin a man, while at the same time essentially giving the green light to the public to say he also murdered the boy from 1989. Case closed as far as they are concerned. All that leads me to ask the question, “how could they have possibly gotten a search warrant unless they caught him in the act doing something?”

Without further information, it obviously looks like they are stringing him up?

I wonder if Jacob would be proud of the fact that millions of people have been harmed in a heinous and unconscionable way by the state in his name? I wonder if any of the kids these act’s are named after would wan’t their name and memory used by the authorities in this way; to destroy any chance of a peaceful and happy life for so many.

It’s standard practice for the police to make vague and ambiguous statements like this. It’s the first step in the manufacture of consent to do do the standard railroad job. Another word for these kinds of statements is manipulation (of opinion). If the man is in fact guilty this is a very dramatic lead up to an extreme sentence which leaves the public feeling he got his just desserts. And if he is not guilty he gets screwed anyway, extreme sentence and all. But is it really justice? Or is it drama designed to make the police look good and to totally destroy a man. This happens far too often in cases of sex crimes; even when there was no sex, and many times there was not another human being involved.

Tunnel vision, investigations are not helpful and are, actually, is a disgrace to victims and victim’s families. LE search and investigate this guy, at the beginning, and found nothing. Now, they are trying fine something that will fit him in, which, is a distraction from looking for the real crook or crooks. All this is junk police work.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
