SARASOTA: 1991 Rape & Murder of Jackie Galloway by John Waterman Who Only Did 20 of a 45 Year State Prison Sentence and Released To “Treatment Center for Rapists” in Arcadia Fl. The 1991 disappearance and murder of Jackie Galloway, a vibrant and social woman in Sarasota, Florida, at first stymied and then shocked investigators. Authorities eventually discovered that Galloway’s slaying was linked to the sexual assault of a second woman in the area — and that both crimes bore strange similarities to those described in a crime thriller novel that the main suspect owned. One June 13, police found Galloway’s bloodied body in a field about 10 miles from downtown Sarasota, wrapped up in a blanket and bound in several places — even excessively, where no bind would have been needed — with a cord. A noose was wrapped around Galloway’s neck, and she was badly decomposed. Her false nails had also all been ripped off. As law enforcement told PEOPLE at the time, “Jackie either put up a fierce fight, or she was cold-bloodedly tortured by her attacker, John Waterman.”

UPDATE…Sarasota’s BTK John Waterman Being Held in Local Sexually Violent Predator Treatment Center Arcadia Fl. John Waterman raped, tortured and murdered Jackie Galloway in 1991, Sarasota Fl. The 580-bed Florida Civil Commitment Center for violent sex offenders is located in Arcadia Fl about 46 miles east of Sarasota. Correct Care assumed management of this secure treatment facility for Sexually Violent Predators, detained or civilly committed under The Involuntary Civil Commitment of Sexually Violent Predators Act (FS 394.910). There’s only one place in the entire country where violent sexual predators are committed indefinitely that is run by a for-profit company. It’s in Arcadia, Florida – on the outskirts of town, past historic buildings and rows of antique stores that tourists often visit. Despite receiving a state award for cost effectiveness, some national civil liberties groups say the Florida Civil Commitment Center is on their radar because it’s being run under a $272 million contract by a for-profit company – one with a criticized performance record and a purported conflict of incentives. It is not a prison, but it looks similar to one from the outside and from the sky. The men inside have all been considered so dangerous they weren’t allowed back into society after their prison sentences ended. So they were committed by the state – involuntarily and indefinitely – at the Florida Civil Commitment Center. TREATMENT PROGRESS REPORTS AND OTHER PERTINENT REPORTS CONCERNING JOHN WATERMAN IN SARASOTA COUNTY COURT ARE SEALED, see case info at link below.

SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE JULY 12 – John Waterman’s grisly crimes still haunt the residents in the upscale Hudson Bayou neighborhood just south of downtown Sarasota. One victim, a 36-year-old woman who lived next door to John Waterman, was found dead in a field in 1991 with her fingernails ripped off and a drapery cord tied around her neck. Another neighbor woman, a 31-year-old single mother, awoke to find Waterman wearing a mask and hovering over her with a knife to her throat, before she was raped. Both crimes on Loma Linda Street paralleled passages in a crime novel called “Postmortem” that investigators found on Waterman’s bookshelf. Residents of Hudson Bayou thought Waterman, then 28, would serve a virtual life sentence when he pleaded no contest and was given a 45-year term. But because he was sentenced before tougher Florida laws took effect, he will be released next month after only 20 years in prison. That has sent his old neighbors into a panic. Waterman’s closest relatives still live on Loma Linda St Sarasota Fl , so many there fear he could return.
BTK, Bind-Torture-Kill, Dennis Lynn Rader (born March 9, 1945) is an American serial killer who murdered ten people in Sedgwick County (in and around Wichita, Kansas), between 1974 and 1991. He was known as the BTK killer (or the BTK strangler). “BTK” stands for “Bind, Torture, Kill”, which was his famous signature. BTK Dennis Rader served on both the Sedgwick County’s Board of Zoning Appeals and the Animal Control Advisory Board (appointed in 1996 and resigned in 1998). He was also a member of Christ Lutheran Church, a Lutheran congregation of about 200 people, near his former high school. He had been a member for about 30 years and had been elected president of the Congregation Council. He was also a Cub Scout leader. OUTWARDLY HE LOOKED AND ACTED NORMAL. Psychologists who interviewed Sarasota’s John Waterman labeled him a low- to moderate- risk for re-offending. He had no prior criminal history. And there was no evidence of sexual violence in the murder, meaning that Waterman has only one conviction for a sexually violent crime. OUTWARDLY HE LOOKED AND ACTED NORMAL.
Case of the Broken Nails…..Jackie Galloway was John Waterman’s murder victim. On June 12th 1991 she went missing, a full-scale search by police and Jackie’s family and friends that lasted through the night failed to turn up a trace of the missing woman. Then, the next afternoon, sheriff’s deputies found Jackie’s decomposing body wrapped in a beige bed sheet in a lot 10 miles from downtown Sarasota. A white braided-nylon cord that turned out to be the kind used with draperies and traverse rods had been fashioned into a noose around her neck, and her wrists showed signs of having been bound. Though Jackie was fully clothed, it was unclear whether she had been sexually assaulted. Most horrifying, however, was the sight of her fingers: Her false nails had all been torn off, leaving nothing but the raw cuticles. “Jackie either put up a fierce fight,” says Sgt. Bill Sullivan of the Sarasota County sheriffs office, “or she was cold-bloodedly tortured by her attacker.” (BTK style). John Waterman worked at Bay Plaza parking cars in 1991. He quickly earned a reputation among fellow employees as a man with some unsettling habits. “He gave me the willies,” says another valet at the complex. He says that Waterman once brandished a gun at a fellow employee, he liked to carry knives and enjoyed capturing pigeons and drowning them.
