Brianna Denison - update
Denison case. Brianna was visiting with friends at the University of Nevada where she was staying over a friend's off campus apartment after a night of partying. The last time she was seen, she was asleep on the sofa. In the morning her friends discovered a small bloodstain on her pillow, she was gone, but her purse, keys and cellphone were left behind. It was determined that a glass door by where she was asleep was left open.
Brianna's body was found days later in a field covered with snow, she had been sexually assaulted and strangled.
The DNA left on Brianna's body has been linked to other victims in the area. The serial rapist and now killer has a signature calling card, he steals his current victim's underwear and replaces it with the underwear of his last victim.
This is very disturbing as it means that we may find Brianna's underwear at another crime scene soon.
The suspect has been describe as a white male about 28 to 40 years in age, thin build with a small belly and short beard standing at about 5'6.
The underwear found with Brianna was a black thong with a pink panther on it, the owner of these may be dead or alive as this serial rapist does not always kill his victims.
