A girl was riding her bike home from college one evening, while somehow simultaneously texting her boyfriend. Then she went quiet…her boyfriend got worried and tried to reach her repeatedly that night with no response. It was until later that police discovered the messy scene that had unfolded that evening…
This man fits the profile perfectly for a creeper. He had a hidden room on his property with restraints, a freezer containing blood, and evidence of many more victims!
Investigators released a search warrant Thursday, providing details on the trail of evidence that led them to Worley.
After Joughin’s family reported her missing, police started their search where she was last seen.
During the search of a cornfield, authorities found her bike, evidence of a struggle and two pairs of sunglasses, one of which belonged to her, according to the search warrants.
They also found a screwdriver, and a motorcycle helmet covered in human blood. The blood and the sunglasses were later revealed to contain Worley’s DNA, search warrants show.
Before the DNA tests were conducted, investigators searching for more clues in the area came across Worley’s property, search warrants show.
Authorities talked to Worley, who told them his motorcycle had broken down in the same location, and that he’d lost his helmet, screwdriver, sunglasses and fuses, according to the search warrants.
“These items were precisely what items were found on the scene, and it was not made public that any of these items were found,” the search warrants say.
Worley also said something the investigators found strange.
“He made the comments that he didn’t steal anything or kill anyone,” the search warrants show. “Interviewees observed what appeared to be fresh marks on the arms of Mr. Worley and what appeared to be bruising on his lower legs.”
Tape, mask found at home
When authorities executed a search warrant at his property, what they found was even more disturbing.
They found the victim’s blood on Worley’s motorcycle at the property, along with zip ties, a ski mask and mace, search warrants show.
A further search revealed a barn that had an area concealed by bales of hay, according to authorities. Nearby was a secured freezer that had blood in it, but authorities did not provide details on whether it was linked to the victim or the suspect.
Authorities found duct tape that had both Worley’s and Joughin’s DNA, several pairs of female panties, journals, maps and a “nanny cam” on his property, search warrants show.
Cell phone location information from Worley’s phone revealed he spent two hours at the scene of the victim’s abduction during the time she was missing, search warrants show.
Is suspect a serial abductor?
The Ohio Attorney General’s Office told CNN authorities are trying to determine whether the suspect is a serial abductor. CNN has reached out to Worley’s attorney.
Worley was charged with aggravated murder, according to Jill Del Greco of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.
The FBI has joined county and state officials in the investigation of Worley, who was charged with kidnapping and felonious assault in 1990 in a case that had some similarities to the current case.
A woman who was riding her bicycle on a rural road near Toledo told authorities that Worley hit her purposely, clouted her head and then tried to handcuff her in his flatbed truck while threatening, “Do what I say or I’ll kill you. I’m serious, I’ll kill you,” according to the 1990 presentencing report in the Common Pleas Court of Lucas County.
Robin Gardner told police that she managed to escape the truck and run to a man who had stopped his motorcycle after seeing a struggle inside the truck. Worley inflicted a one-inch laceration on her right knee with a flathead screwdriver, she said.
The serial killer had the audacity to lie about trying to harm the young girl. He said that he only tried to retrain her because she was trying to leave the scene of an accident. He said…”My family and myself are good, decent and very honest people,” This man is obviously very guilty, and should not even get a jail sentence! We shouldn’t be waisting our tax dollars on some worthless piece of crap like this by putting him in jail so he can sleep on a bed, have three meals a day, read books, and enjoy rec time. He took the lives of many and he only has to be bored in jail for 4 to 10 years! Something is VERY wrong with our justice system.
