Yes it's a go. This idea started on fb. I will be there even if I'm the only one. I don't know what time though. I figure once it's dark or close to it.

Now just imagine - They would have caught him in NY if the police had released the info on the car 2 days earlier. This is isn't the first time other cops have had to step up where ours slacked off. Amazing what passes for law enforcement around this inbred excuse for a region lol!

<quoted text>Well if you just watch the local news its very obvious they dont follow local sex offenders, since they've been looking for a serial rapist thats gone missing for some time now. With that being said, there is a murderer loose in our city. For the past few years bodies have been showing up (woman dumped behind Deerfield Firehouse, the guy on Sunset Ave, the young woman that disappeared from Bleeker St....) Lots of unsolved murders in Utica
You called it. My gf had the same thought that the loose rapist may be responsible.

This is just another case of the small town police, not bringing in the big guns. They clearly knew this pig was involved. And tried to be the hero's. So they put a big gag order on it. The State knows the public is it's best eyes. One dead sheriff, now another dead citizen. The system is broken, and don't start the cut back tears. We don't need administrators to have ankle bracelet.

Maybe we need to start implanting computer chips in criminals, like we do dogs.

If my memory serves me right, sex offenders cannot be cured or rehabilitated from their need to do so. but yet, this guy was released twice from such behavior and now this happened. It just makes you wonder if the system works.

Rumor is that she called the police early in the week because he came into her hotel...he was gone by the time the police got there...he must of realized what she did and went back...its obvious the police knew he was involved and they did what they had to do...don't think just because they didn't let the public know the car was missing immediately doesn't mean they didn't inform other law enforcement which is why the police in PA pulled him over...I think the officials acted the way they were trained obviously they wouldn't want the public to know about the missing car because that would alert the killer...sometimes people need to use common sense...

They think it's a great idea because every body pumps up the numbers of people in this area. The politicians don't care if they're criminals or not...as long as they get their numbers.

As for our very own "Keystone Cops"...what else can be said? Amateurs at best. Common sense would have dictated that the very minute it was known that her car was missing, an APB should have been put out statewide...not wait for 2 days. Just think of all the time sensitive local tips that could have helped catch this guy sooner! And who knows...he may have had other victims between Utica and PA. Good job UPD...you guys are awesome! Lol

Shame on all the people involved in letting this deplorable man out. They should be held accountable. If I were a family member of the poor woman, I would be suing everyone involved!!!! That is after I put a "hit" on the scumbag that did it!!

This is why N. Utica needs MORE Patrol cars keeping watch over this section of Utica.

There has always been only 1 Patrol Car for N. Utica. This was fine 50 years ago, but N. Utica has over 75% since that time and now has many businesses plus a huge increase in the population. UPD does NOT have any intention of increasing the number of Patrol cars for N.Utica per a conversation I had with Mark Williams. There are many times when the N. Utica Patrol car is called to other areas in Utica for various crimes which leaves N. Utica completely void of any police potection.

I had an intruder in my home and called 911 PLUS UPD - it took them over 1/2 hour before they arrived as they were on a call in E.Utica. By the time they arrived, the intruder had left.

IMO - too bad Linda didn't have a large dog or even a shotgun to protect herself. The way society is today, no one can protect themselves singlehandly. Rest in peace, Linda - your killer will spend the rest of his life caged up like the animal he is.

Added note: If Robert Blainey did try to rent a cabin at the Davis Hotel previously and Linda had reported it to UPD, why didn't UPD warn the neighbors living in the area that he had been spotted in their neighborhood?

Here's a dose of reality for you people. The Police are not there to protect any of us! They don't prevent crime, they only clean up the situation afterwards. If you have an intruder come into your house or threaten harm to you or your family, then you must act to protect yourself! If you wait for a cop, you will be sorry. It sucks, but that is reality. Protect yourself and your family because the police cannot. They carry guns to protect themselves, NOT the public. Public Enemy said it best when they sang "911 is a joke"!

No your responce is totally incorect. If the rumor is indeed true, it is clear this was another time assistance was needed. Utica does not have enough manpower for constant surveylance. This man was a huge case prior to Linda's demise. Again County Sheriffs, State Police and Federal Marshall's could have supported in watching the place in case he returned.

He was not pulled over because of the BOLO for the car. He was pulled over for a traffic infraction. All of which are run thru the computer, that is was got him caught. Obviously your idea that the information would tip him off doesn't stand, he was still driving her car.

I smell what appears to be bad judgement on Utica's part, trying to keep this issue in their court. Were they thinking they could catch this guy and get all the credit ? Are they now fearing legal issues for not involving outside sources ? The families reaction is going to be interesting.

We need a new law on the books that requires all sex offenders released from prison to have to wear GPS ankle bracelets. If Robert Blainey had a ankle bracelet on he would have been caught before he murdered Linda Turner. Now is the time to call and e-mail Congressman Hanna, Senator Schumer, Senator Gillibrand, Senator Griffo, Assemblyman Brindisi and Assemblywoman Tenney and tell them to draw up a bill requiring these sex offenders to be monitored by GPS and get it passed ASAP.
