funny thing, i'm watching the police channel about the yogurt murders and mentioned to my girlfriend in Los Angeles; this murder sounds exactly like the captain D's and McDonald's murders by Paul Dennis Reid. And he moved to Nashville about 1995 after being released from prison in Texas in 1990.
Very very similar!

I would definitely check out Reid's where-a-bouts in Dec of 1991!

He seems like a strong suspect. I can only assume that the APD checked him out and did not consider him plausible. The whole "doughnut munchers" thing is tired and immature. There are current investigators trying to find out what happened. The problem was a crime scene that was destroyed by the fire department and a Detective Polanco that forever killed the case with his coercive interrogation tactics that allowed all kinds of confidential information to get out. Bad police work hurt the case, not lazy police work.

I wonder if Paul Dennis Reid fit the description of the customer who was in the yogurt shop that just before closing was allowing other customers to go first and then asked to use the restroom. This testimony was re-reported in the Austin Chronicle a year or so ago.

I'm from clarksville where Paul Dennis Reid killed two girls at a Baskin Robins. I lived in Tx for a while, and when I saw the story about the yougurt shop murders, I got cold chills. I feel in my heart he had something to do with it.

Reid was on annual reporting status in Tx. I think he was arrested in middle Tn. before the murders were committed. double check the Nashville Tennessean.

You didn't mention - segment of what?

from time/warner cable:
"Defense lawyers have outlined in court filings that the DNA from three unidentified males, not Springsteen, Scott or two previous co-defendants, has been discovered in vaginal swabs taken from three of the victims."
and
"The Austin American-Statesman reports Sunday that seven former jurors in the trials of two co-defendants convicted in the grisly Austin yogurt shop murders would not vote for the same verdict Sunday after learning of recent DNA findings."

That would make at least 7 perps - wake up and smell the facts.

from Kim Rossmo - ex Canadian detective inspector and developed the geographical profiling technique:
"It appears detectives are trying to twist the evidence to fit pre-existing theories, rather than adjusting their beliefs to accommodate the new DNA evidence," wrote Rossmo, a Texas State University criminology professor and former police detective. "A proper investigation requires an open mind and a constant exploration of alternative suspects. It appears this has not occurred in any meaningful way in the tragic Yogurt Shop Murders case."

I should add - APD and the DA's office have it wrong and they know it.

Problem is that admitting a mistake would:
1 - cost Travis county tens of millions of dollars for false imprisonment
2 - be professionally embarrassing
3 - while judges and da's are generally protected professionally (they shouldn't be), police officers are not and could be sued individually

By keeping it an open case, they don't have to release info or talk about it.

And when was the last time ANY DA or police officer admitted they made a mistake.

It seems the second lot of investigators used a ''nominative'' approach.(A suspect is nominated and a case built around that person. This can and does mean evidence is used selectively.) They should always use the "eliminative" approach.(The eliminative approach requires evidence be applied in a way to eliminate people from the pool of suspects.)

Um im gonna be honest with ya all if they consider what has been done an investigation thats a joke. The police know exactly who did it hell even I know who it was the whole things on tape.and as far as I know every piece of evidence was collected by special investigations to maintain control of the case. Ive been stuck over this reid nightmare for years its been torture and what about frank and mary? Why is it nothings been done,cause the jackass thinks hes god and the unseen crap behind him is a bigger nightmare than he is. But the end is near,this I do know, and its a head game now for vengeance at this point. Whos afraid of the big bad wolf now that he knows where they are.everyone should be.

To Benmaca

Good description.

During the investigation of the Natalee Holloway disappearance and the frustration with the type of investigation, someone explained that the approach internationally (generally) is INQUISITORY to gather information and facts whereas the US approach (generally) is ACCUSATORY to put an individual under pressure.

The police have one sample of unidentified DNA, not three. That could imply five suspects, not seven, If, that DNA is actually related to the case. Don't spread lies.

If there's one, then there's one. Complain to Time/Warner for "spreading lies". That's why I quoted the source.

I believe he was involved. And in fact there are two moreI believe he was involved in. The clarksville,tn Taco bell murder where all employees were killed by gunshot, and another Taco bell murder in Texas where employees were found stot in the cooler. I believe they got the wrong people behind bars.

Ive read the evidence statements from court documents and his unusual method of leading clerks to the back or cooler and executing is not something every robber does. You can google resturant murders and taco bell murders and a lot of them pop up. Reid is probably responsible for most of them beetween texas and tennessee maybe even further away, with the trademark of executing clerks in the back of the resturant or cooler. I would bet he's responsible for the bowling alley murders and several more. I believe when he was released from prison, he went on a rampage throughout many states to avoid detection and may have had accomplices?
