    This lead looks promising, but I am not getting too hopeful until they release more info. What a certified POS he his and I hope if nothing else, he burns in hell for what he did to the innocent 9-year-old that he tortured and nearly killed. Thank God for good police work that saved her life!!

    I know there has been multiple POIs in this case, but this guy tops them all for me. The picture of BG has always never made complete sense to me, but now looking at it with fresh eyes, it's clear that BG has a dog or puppy underneath this jacket. This alone explains almost all unanswered questions I have with this case. The fact this new suspect or POI has dogs, one that he used in an attack on a young girl, connects the two in my mind. If we want to reach even further, I think that this guy could even have a hand in the Evansdale murders as well, because my gut tells me that a dog or puppy was used in the abduction of those girls as well. More of a hunch since I don't have a picture of the suspect in that case carrying what appears to be a dog. Either way I hope Indiana LE are doing their due diligence and that they've finally found the missing piece they've been looking for, the dog or dog connection.

    Just watched the Inside Edition clip on this .... I don’t know if I’m looking for something that isn’t there, but he’s got the same shifty walk (though less pronounced than when on the old bridge) as bridge guy.

    I must admit, since this new lead has come out I have been scouring the web for any piece of info or updates. I want Justice so badly for these two sweet girls. When I saw his face, it was hard not to think that this may be the guy. I was comparing his walk in court to the BG walk, comparing his voice, google mapping the distance. Thank you guys for doing what you do. I knew you would cover this. I can always count on you to bring it.

    The raccoon eyes on this poor girl could also indicate head injury-if the blow to the head is severe enough it causes the brain to “hit” the front of the skull with velocity damaging parts of the meninges and surrounding blood vessels-same thing happened to Karla Homolka after Paul Bernardo hit her over the head with a heavy torch-this new suspect is a monster-I hope it’s the bridge guy to give the Delphi parents some sense of peace and justice-I wish the really graphic details of the sexual assault weren’t released for the girls privacy.

    Glad you guys are covering this development. I don't think he's Bridge Guy but I love Captain's description of him and I think he's a great suspect worthy of discussion. Can't wait to hear what you guys think in part two. Speaking of Delphi, I just listened to the episodes on the Evansdale murders and a few similarities are jumping out at me: 1) both sets of girls were abducted off a recreational trail, and a section of the trail where they were trapped (in Delphi by the height of the bridge, in Evansdale by the chain link fences on either side of the trail), and 2) in both cases the girls were killed and/or dumped on a local hunting ground. The way he trapped them and where he took him tell me the killer in both cases is an experienced hunter. Also, 3) there is a Tyson pork processing plant near both towns. Could there be a connection? I never get to have a beer with you guys 'cause I'm always listening while I'm driving, but I've got a good pale ale going now. My favorite!

    A coupla things: 1. Looking at Chadwell's photo and the Bridge Guy image capture, what strikes me is Chadwell's sloping shoulders and how that fits *really* well with Bridge Guy. Just comparing body shapes/silhouettes would be helpful, I suspect. 2. I'll spare you the long version, but I was subjected to frequent violence as a child and teen, and when I was 14 I was certain I was going to be killed. It's one of those watershed changes that never leaves. I'm now in my 60s and I see neighbors my age wrestling with issues I dealt with decades ago, simply because they're now at the point where they're realizing they're really, really going to die someday. Been there. Done that. I absolutely do not believe an early "death" has to permanently ruin someone, but you never get to live in denial the way most people do a lot of their lives. Not sure which is better. Survivors help anchor the world in key ways. If we don't initially self-destruct (about a 50:50 IF, as far as I've heard), we usually end up being the boring, but necessary person in the group who makes The Good Choices. (Shyamalan was talking about this in the Unbreakable trilogy. Ditto Red Riding Hood's solo in "Into the Woods.") I just know Victim #1 is now on the long road of asking questions most ten-year-olds don't even begin to think about. She will be happy again, but she'll never again get to be naive. But, maybe naive ain't that great anyway.

    This is where you hope there is useable DNA from the Delphi scene - all the rest is just unhelpful speculation!

    Very on the fence with this guy, but something tells me it’s not him One thought though: he has fairly prominent lower neck tattoos. Many people think bridge guy is overdressed and wearing some sort of scarf. Is this to conceal the tatts...? That said, the second sketch has the neck exposed with no tatts . Capt: it’s pretty clear you have your own suspect based on the ep from a few weeks back and that Chadwell doesn’t match. Is there any update on your man?

    and regarding the hidden dog/puppy theory. Can anyone who believes in this theory please explain to me why bridge guy felt the need to hide the dog/puppy under his jacket rather than walk with it on a leash or something??? If he needed to carry it over the bridge, why put it in your jacket??

    Thank you so much for these update episodes. I still can't get over the timing involved in the rescue of this little girl. How do you stop thinking about the enormity of what's happened to her? I can't. Thank god this guy has been removed from the population. I hope he's guilty of the Delphi murders. This stuff is devastating.

    Thanks Nic and Captain for the update. The moment I saw the photo of this suspect, I thought “ yes, this is BG”. He checks so many boxes. I have always suspected that the girls murders were sexually motivated. I have mixed feelings on the death penalty but I want this predator to end up strapped to a table with a paralyzing agent and a potassium chaser running through his veins #justiceforlibbyandabbey Keep the TCG podcasts coming

    Great episodes. do we know if James tattoo goes to his hand? In the Bridge Guy photo you can kind of see his hand, which doesn't appear to have any tattoo on it. My second thought is maybe this is why bridge guy is so covered up, not to show his tattoo's?

    I'm listening to this episode now and I think Nic makes a good point about when the lock was placed on the door. My parents built their house just before my sister and I were born and the basement door has a chain lock on it so she and I wouldn't go tumbling down accidentally. It was never to lock us in the basement of course! - but to lock us out so we wouldn't get hurt. Thirty years later and the chain is still there because there was never any reason to replace the door and then the chain served its purpose again - to keep the little grand kids from getting hurt. If the suspect put the lock on, then he most likely had nefarious reasons to do so but it's possible the lock was there from a prior owner or tenant and could have a legit reason for being on the door.

    Great production again This could be the start of what we’ve been waiting for. Believe it or not he looks like both sketches. Outdoors experience, location, priors, walk, and age. He fits my profile but I did think he had military or weapon experience. Voice match? Is he left handed? Work history? And how does he get away with it for so long with supposed DNA evidence? He’ll probably get life and will be out on the streets in 4 years as long as he is vaccinated and promises to do better.

    @Nic - I am eternally confused about one thing: IS THERE DNA??? If there is, then obviously he isn't the guy as his markers would be in the system. And, LE could have excluded him in the past week on the off chance that his genetic material had dodged the system. This leads me to assume that there is no DNA. Yet everyone seems to presume there is. Do you have any info?

    @ Slatts Mccracker It's a good and fair question about the why, only he would truly know. My speculation breaks two ways. The first would be BG showed up and was "ready to go" from the moment he hit the trail and that this is part of his planned MO. The dog didn't leave the carrier until the crime was committed, if at all, depending on how things shook out. If this is true, he wouldn't necessarily want to be seen with the dog both before and after, so he'd pick one or the other. The fact I feel like I'm taking crazy pills since I'm the only one seeing a dog under the jacket, he seems like he's successfully hidden the dog till this point. This seems a little less likely to me since the timing would have to be perfect or near perfect, rather than just generally having the dog with him if the opportunity presented itself. My second speculation is that he would be very comfortable with this dog and this is just routine behavior for him. Situation where the dog could fall off what I think is fairly unsafe bridge, in you go. Can double that he uses his dog carrier to also carry any weapons that may be used in the commission of the crime, but that's a guess. I know it seems like a long shot, but with the picture of BG and thinking with this theory, it helps "ground" the rest of the picture on my mind with shadows/lighting and whatnot. Hard to explain better than that but that's the best I can do.

    Will be anxious to hear an update on this POI or exclusion. Very interesting to see his areas of arrests... Peru, Miami County Jail, Kokomo, and Lafayette. Right in the center of those- Delphi and the trail is between Peru/MC and Lafayette on highway. Also, anyone walking high bridge with hands in pockets has been there/on high bridges many times. I've been there as a child and adult, I couldn't even step past 2nd railroad tie without turning around, let alone cross, and in no possible way with hands in pockets. Please Please Please "Today is the day". The families and our community needs this solved.

    In doing my own research on this POS I came across a video he'd made while drawing. https://youtu.be/RkeH3T9Uom4 It made me think... What if the fanny pack on BG/JBCII contained art supplies and he was at the bridge that day drawing? What if he saw these girls and saw a new "medium". The crime scene was described as odd. I wonder if they'd been painted in some way and/or arranged as "art". After seeing JBCII's tattoos, I wonder if there was something particularly done with their eyes. He'd only been in that house for a few months but plenty of time to buy new dishes and a chain lock. Poor 9yo girl stumbled into his trap. BG or not I feel waaay better knowing this piece of shit is off the streets. Thanks guys for featuring it this week. I've been going nuts since this broke last week. Back to Sons of Sam and bourbon...

    I think given the level of confidence the Police have had, since the beginning of this case, they must have DNA of the perp. And it would've been known within days of his arrest (if he was a match). Obviously he wasn't, and all this citizen detective/spectulation is futile. In regards to the 'sketch' (and we know how few sketches ever end up, actually bearing a close resemblance, to a convicted perp), so it's kind of 'null and void', anyways. But Sketch 1 to my eyes looks more likely a 55 year old, vs Sketch 2, a 23 year old! S2 has frizzy, or curly hair. Large chin. Nose close to mouth. S1 looks a tad closer, but given that Brian would've been 37-38 at the time, it seems unlikely, if you're placing any weight on the sketches.

    While I see the resemblance between bridge guy and this clown, I just am not convinced it’s him. Chadwell has tattoos all over this body, including on his hands, which we don’t see in the snapchat video or in the police sketch. Secondly, he clearly had his ears gauged at some point and they are massive and noticeably so. The ears and the hand tattoos are distinctive characteristics. If police have an eye witness, that’s probably something that would have been pointed out. Finally, the way bridge guy was dressed was more like an old man, than a tattoo’d, gauged eared Affliction wearing dude in his late 30’s. Are there pictures out there or this guy and his fashion style? Because I imagine Chadwell’s fashion is more like the Captain’s than like the bridge guy.

    I grew up in the Lafayette area and I can tell you this. The location of this POS's house is in a friendly neighborhood next to the main city park. It is NOT in a "seedy" or "crime" filled area of the city. I cannot think of any reason-but to be a sadistic POS- that he would need a chain type lock on his basement door.

    I dont know if this is bridge guy or not- I guess we will find out! My thoughts on the why- on a normal weekday (as in when kids are at school) how many people would you expect to see at the trail the girls were visiting? It was a non school day- but someone not connected to the schools might not know that. If bg had gone to the trail for a different purpose altogether- to meet someone, to do some kind of deal and came across two school girls who had not only seen him but who had filmed him- that could create another motive altogether for their deaths?

    I dont know if this is bridge guy or not- I guess we will find out! My thoughts on the why- on a normal weekday (as in when kids are at school) how many people would you expect to see at the trail the girls were visiting?

    At first I had thought that this just couldn’t be the guy because he has so many felonies and almost all states require felons to submit their DNA to be stored in a National system. And if it were him his DNA would have caught him long before he was ever on LE radar. But after checking into it Indiana didn’t pass this law until Dec of 2017 and it didn’t go into effect until later than that. So if anybody was thinking the same thing as I was, well it turns out the state DNA laws for felons isn’t consistent. Many states require it after a conviction, some require it just for a charge and still some have no laws whatsoever still. North Dakota didn’t pass their law until 2012 so he missed that one by a decade. Hopefully LE will just turn to his brother or father if he’s denying them access to his DNA. Which he legally can do (at least as far as I can tell though I’m not an expert on Indiana DNA laws) right now. That is until the there’s a felony conviction. Though if his brother or father will allow it, then we will know one way or the other if he is the Scum Bag known as Bridge Guy. I’m still 50/50 with him. If it wasn’t for the fact we have seen this all before (more than once unfortunately), where everyone’s absolutely positive that their suspect is BG, think Dan Nations... how people actually believed he was a viable suspect still blows my mind. In fact, it’s actually scary when you really sit down and think about it. Our prisons are going to get filled back up mighty quick if that kind of reasoning is ever allowed to take root in our judicial system. But anyways, enough of my rant. Let’s get his brother to submit his DNA and then we will know one way or another if we got ‘em.

    Idk if you guys have ever mentioned it but I was watching a YouTube video comparing Chadwell’s face and voice to BG & while I was reading the comments someone pointed out that in the audio of BG you can hear one of the girls yelling “I said no” and after closely listening you can definitely hear it, it might sound like shuffling but it’s definitely there and super chilling

    HinI just wanted to let you know. If someone is on probation. They sign paperwork that if the police pull them over or come to their house and they are asked if they can search car or house. The person on probation has to let them in or it's a violation of probation. The police can not ransack house but they can do a sweep in the house.

    When this monster was arrested for the crime against the little 9 year old girl, and Delphi LE announced they are now looking into a possible connection to the Delphi murders, I had such hope. So many things seem to click with this monster and the Delphi Murders, more so than any other POI's that have come and gone over the years. Now, I'm not so sure. It's been some time since LE announced they are looking into him and I would have hoped by now there would have been some word as to whether or not they are still interested in him or if they aren't any closer to solving the murders than before this POI came to light. I feel this means the DNA will not be the deciding factor in trying to get a conviction from any POI, whether it's this monster or someone else. If that is the case, I'm not sure what evidence they could have that could say 100% it's him or not without an outright confession. Thank you both for keeping this case in so fresh with frequent updates. It's people like you and everyone who constantly shares this case over and over that could ultimately make the difference!

    I’m not sure if this is the right place for this comment because it’s about the Off the Record Jon Benet episode—that includes lots of talk on Delphi.....because all roads lead back to Delphi (as they should). Two quick comments: 1. I think you guys are spot on regarding the intruder theory. I never understood people who thought the parents/brother did it. My issue is the garrote. It makes no sense for the parents to kill their child this way. 2. The new Delphi “suspect” gives me some hope. I have no idea if this is the guy but lots of pieces fit. And if it IS the guy—-I suspect we will not know for a long time, even if they know right now. LE has been so quiet and careful. Chadwell is in jail. There is no incentive to say a word until everything is locked down water tight. Look at the Lori Vallow Daybell case—-she and chad are obviously involved in the murders, but neither of them has been charged with murder to date. They want to get it right. This is the best spin I can put on the lack on information—I hope its him. As always, thanks for the work you both put into the show.

    Hi Jordyn, I know we keep coming back to this and yours is the $64,000 question. Or whatever that number was that people use to quote. They (LE) are on record saying both - they cannot answer that question AND yes, they do have DNA. I have also heard from LE (public info) that they have DNA and finger prints but they do not know yet if they belong to the killer. The Captain had some spot on thoughts on that regard and I believe that was on our Off The Record show. Cheers Nic

    Hey guys, curious to know what are your thoughts on the level of criminal sophistication of BG? Both BG and Chadwell seem to have predatory instincts about trapping their victims and the primary goal was to lure, control and attack. We know more about what Chadwell is accused of doing to his victim then we do BG, and for not a knock on the door, Chadwell would have had time to kill and cover up. I think Chadwell has the level of criminal experience and intelligence that BG has (more so then some of the other potential POIs, which fall short on criminal sophistication), but of course, all speculation until it's solved. Do you think BG committed similar crimes before Delphi, or was he lucky the first (only?) time?

    Hi Nicole - great question. It's really difficult for me to put my finger on just how sophisticated of a criminal BG is. Mainly because I believe that unfortunately he has been more lucky than smart. I think some things have worked at for him so far and that does not necessarily make him sophisticated. Where we do see that he is absolutely not sophisticated - he left a witness (image and voice on phone) and may have attacked impulsively - a crime of opportunity where he sprung into action with a lot of carelessness. Listen to our episode Serial Confessor Part 1 Episode 413. During the trailer we discuss Roy Hazlewood's definition of the Impulsive Offender. Which is not an intelligent criminal. I think you will see SOME similarities to BG on the surface. I believe the more you analyze the definition you will begin to see a lot of strikingly strong similarities. He only seems smart because he has not been caught but if you look at the crime he really did a lot of dumb things and in many ways allowed himself to be identified. Again I think he has gotten lucky, unfortunately. I also strongly believe that BG went there that day with the intention of committing a specific crime and he ended up not being successful. I think he killed out of frustration with his victims and himself. He is a failure, a loser and when we find out who he is we will all see a very dull, dim witted person who has failed in most of the aspects of his life. He set out to commit a crime to feel better about himself and failed. He killed because he hates us - good, normal, smart people with successful meaningful relationships. He hates us because he hates himself. Hopefully he could leave a full confession note and really do something of actual importance for the first time in his life and jump off the Monon High bridge and then forever seal his name as the Bridge Guy. Until he gets caught, convicted and executed - a boy can dream. Cheers Nic

    Cheers to that! I definitely see some crossover with the Impulsive Offender type and BG... the combo of luck and knowledge/ comfort with the park, bridge and exits helped him get away but luck always runs out. I am sure there are details not made public that paint a much clearer picture, and amazingly, this case has not leaked in ways others do. We will all have to raise a glass when the day arrives that State v BG, found guilty as charged is on the books

    Just took a trip to Delphi and walked the trails. Nic, I would recommend doing the same, if you haven't already. It puts a few things into greater focus. 1- the area (trail head, bridge, cemetery, CPS building) feels much smaller than I would have imagined. You can see the parking lot of the trail head from where the CPS building was. You can see the Freedom Bridge in many directions. We ran into other hikers multiple times. There are houses visible, and close to the trails, in many directions. 2- Even with a trail map and talking to a few people on where to go, we got lost a few times. 3- There's only 1 trail that leads to the bridge, it's not very long, not very wide but you do feel isolated. 4. The slope down from the private road to the creek is very steep, there is no way to really "walk" down it, you would have to likely carefully slide down. It would also be very difficult to climb back up, especially if it was muddy. 5. My brother, who is a firefighter and has never been to the bridge, crossed it easily in under 4 minutes at his normal walking pace (which is a little fast). His gait was not natural although his hand mannerisms did seem normal for him. It wasn't difficult for him to walk with his hand in his pockets in some areas but you absolutely have to have your head down at all times. 6. You could park in the back of the cemetery and not be seen from the main road. The walk from the creek to the cemetery seems like it would be very easy and you would not be seen. The walk from the creek to the old CPS building doesn't seem very difficult either although the chances of being seen would be quite high.
