NO HOME INVASIONS IN SARASOTA SINCE THE HERALD TRIBUNE POSTED A MAP ON APRIL 21st SHOWING THE ATTACKS WITH PROCTOR RD AS THE CENTER POINT.
Why has the "masked man" who has pulled at least 10 home invasions in the Sarasota- Bradenton area stopped his serial attacks on women since the Herald Tribune posted an article on April 21st about him with a map of the 5 attacks in the Sarasota area showing Proctor Rd as the center point of all the attacks ? It is a quick trip up Proctor Rd to Cattlemen Rd and then the access ramp off of Bee Ridge Rd and onto I-75 North and the Bradenton area.
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.
Did the Herald Tribune unknowing strike a nerve with the masked man in Sarasota, does the "masked man" who has attacked at least 10 middle aged women living alone and killing one, actually live somewhere near Proctor Rd in Sarasota Fl ? The last documented attack by the Sarasota-Bradenton "masked man" was April 20th in NW Bradenton Fl by the river. Murdered Georgeann Smith on Jo-An Drive just happened to attend the Bee Ridge Baptist Church on Proctor Rd.
The two goons that broke into a Sarasota home with machine guns on May 1st and attacked and elderly woman and her son are not the same "masked man" who has been terrorizing the Sarasota-Bradenton area since mid February 2009. Police say, Christopher Sellars, 25, and James Stephens, 20, entered a house at 760 S. Shade Ave., and forced the occupants, 82-year-old Marilyn Jones and her son, Tony, onto the living room floor at gunpoint. Sellars and Stephens also are accused in a home invasion at 2329 53rd St., the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office said. None of the 10 Sarasota-Bradenton attacks are linked to these two goofs.
Profile of the Sarasota-Bradenton "masked man" from the victims account of his appearance, white male, 35 to 55 years of age, 5'10" to 6' 0 " tall, dark hair, medium build about 175 lbs, spoke of having a crack cocaine habit. From what I can gather from the reports of the 10 attacks in the Sarasota - Bradenton Fl area, the "masked man" must have cased the homes before he attacked, he would have been in the neighborhoods prior to the attack possibly working outside at his regular job in a position with a marked vehicle that would not arouse suspicion, possibly a pick-up truck as some large electronic were taken in the Bradenton attacks (54 inch plasma TV and computers).
The Sarasota-Bradenton "masked man" must also have some computer/internet savvy as he has been able to attack only homes that appeared to list a middle aged woman living alone, he is picking up information somewhere on who lives in the homes he attacks as to age, gender, race, medium income, number of occupants, etc.
