DNA Links Some Sarasota Home Invasions, Detectives Say, The Supposed Sketch Is Not The Guy !

4/28/09..DNA links some Sarasota home invasions, detectives say, it would be “detrimental” for the media to continue circulating the supposed sketch of the attacker, it ain't the guy. At the news conference, Col. Steve Burns read from a prepared statement. He said a sketch released last week in a Manatee County case may not be the same suspect.

He said it could be “detrimental” for the media to continue circulating the picture, which was issued by the Manatee Sheriff’s Office. Investigators have looked at 10 attacks since Feb. 16. UPDATE..Tuesday, May 26, 2009, Masked Man Beats and Rapes Woman In Her Home On Siesta Key, The Attack Mimics 10 Other Sarasota-Bradenton Home Invasion Serial Attacks of Women.

The attacker in the Home Invasions in Sarasota and Bradenton Fl has been described by victims as a white male, 5'10" to 6' 0" tall, about 175 to 185 lbs, he wears a BLACK SKI MASK and has made statements that he robs to feed a crack cocaine habit. The DNA the Sarasota cops have obtained most likely came from the April 6th murder of Georgeann Smith, the black belt karate expert who fought back. Since the Sarasota cops have the DNA of the supposed attacker and they have no match in the system, it would lead me to believe the serial attacker (murderer) has no record, never been arrested, never been caught before.

The attacker appears to be targeting mostly middle-aged women, who live alone, creeping into their homes or yards and sneaking up behind them. He strikes them in the head, usually binds them with cords or rope he finds in their homes, then grabs cash, credit cards, jewelry and electronics.

Usually in cases like this, the Sarasota male perp would have recently moved into the area (Jan 2009) and had numerous prior address's around the country, a drifter, he could possibly have no prior arrest record and no DNA on file as he has gotten away with the same attacks in other parts of the country.

The Sarasota male perp would be single and living alone, he would be 35 to 53 years of age and he appears to work outside in the day time, working the Sarasota neighborhoods as he blends in. All of the attacks in Sarasota occurred North of Clark Road and centered on Proctor Road.

Some of the attacks on the five Sarasota woman appear to have occurred in broad daylight which leads me to believe the Sarasota male perp has some kind of job and marked vehicle that would not arouse suspicion as he cases the houses beforehand, a job that would imply that he had no criminal record and was trustworthy.

The male perp (attacker) in the Sarasota area must be also able to access information, (online), on who lives in the houses he cases, like from property records and to identify single women in a certain age bracket.
