I just hope they don't put all this on him to keep the media and people off their back,they like to do that.and let the real ---holes run free.Something sure sounds fishy about all this.There's been hookers killed years ago and they haven't found out who did this and now they think there's something.My husband runs a bible class from some of mi. jail's and prisions and he has been told by a few prisioners that they were given other crimes just becausethey were going to be doing the time anyway.He believes some of them.

I agree and without all the evidence dont judge the man and convict him on all this. There basically trying to say they have caught a mass murderer then. And trying to connect him to the wright murders? Something is very fishy about it all. They dont have anything on the old ones and now trying to pin it all on one man, doesnt sound right to me.

Don't you think it's just common sense to check out the other prostitute murders? I feel alot better that they are checking out everything which might even remotely involve this guy. I don't want him on the streets whether he tried to kill prostitue, shoot a guy, or killed the family. This guy needs to be put away. He is scary!

I agree. What ever Brake is guilty of, it will all come out I'm sure. Just be patient and let the police do their job. Speculations and nonfactual rumors do not help. Some of the evidence does look suspicious, I hope that if he is guilty of all of the formentioned crimes that he gets what he deserves. On the other hand, if he is not guilty of them all, then I don't want him to just be slammed with it while another killer runs free. All of the families involved need closure so I hope that it comes soon.

Also, for the woman who managed to get away. She should not be forgoten through all of this either. I'm sure that this has been a very tramatic situation for her. Lets keep our prayers going for her as well. She could've been another lost life!

Maybe the unidentified hair from the Julia Dawson trial should checked to see if it's Troy Brakes, after all he has a Sparta connection too. Just a suggestion

I think their just want to investigate thoroughly. That should be okay as long as they are honest and careful. Yes some may be prostitutes but some of us
are not streetwise and don't understand all people's lives. I believe even a prostitute may have family that loves them. A murderer is a murderer know matter
who they kill.
