Westminster, CO – Police are now saying that there is a definitive link between the murder of 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway and the attempted abduction of a jogger last May.

Jessica was last seen Oct 5 after leaving her home to walk to school. Her dismembered body was later discovered in Pattridge Park Open Space near an abandoned mining shack.

Last Memorial Day, a woman was jogging on Ketner Lake Open Space when a man tried to cover her face with a chemical-soaked rag. She was able to escape and described her attacker as an 18 to 30 year-old light-skinned male with brown hair and a medium build, about 5-feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall.

Police say these to incidents are related, but are not revealing exactly how they have linked the two cases. “We are able to make a definitive link,” said Westminster Police Department spokesman Trevor Materasso. “We recognize the public may have questions about what constitutes that definitive link and we’re asking for their patience. Some of that information, because of the investigation, the additional leads and tips and follow up we have to do, we’re not able to go into detail and give specific reasons for how we have made that connection.”

Fox 31 pretty much said fuck Materasso, and the investigation into who murdered a 10-year-old girl, by posting an article chock full of information gathered from “sources” that not only reveals what this link may be, but also the leads police are currently pursuing. In a nutshell, DNA was collected from the abduction attempt as well as from items related to the Ridgeway murder.

You can find the article yourself if you need more info than that, but I don’t think I could sleep at night if I posted details police asked to be kept under wraps, and somehow compromised the apprehension of a child killer. But that’s just me.

Police have released a photo of a cross and are asking people to pay attention to the markings on the cross. It contains zig-zag markings on one side, and three lines etched on the crossbar of the other side. They are asking that the public not focus on the size and shape of the cross itself, but rather the markings.

Anyone with tips about Jessica’s murder, or about the Memorial Day attack is asked to call Westminster Police at 303-658-4336 or email PDamberalert@cityofwestminster.us.com

  • can some explain to me why is it that police can never reveal anything to the public but always asking the public for “help”

  • curiousalways

    F*ck Channel 13. Who cares about stopping another potential murder and solving this one when you can get the story scoop? Nice. Will some people ever get it’s not all about them?

  • Andyman

    It’s got to be a difficult day to allow your 10 year old daughter to walk to school all by herself only to learn of her subsequent fate. I have a 5 year old and I don’t know when the day will come that I ever let her completely out of my sight, even though it has to happen someday. God the pain these parents must fell has to be immense. RIP little girl.

  • tinalib13

    They don’t release info. if they think that it will jeopardize finding the killer. And they ask for our help because they want to solve the case. I don’t think I would want all the gory details of a child murder case, but that’s just me.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Minor point, but it’s Fox 31, not Fox 13. You’re right, though. Their coverage makes them sound like a bunch of self-important asshats who are more concerned with their ratings than with justice for Jessica. But that’s hardly news.

  • Yikes. Thanls.

  • They don’t reveal information that may help the person responsible cover their tracks, or know where they are at in an investigation. It makes total sense and I am surprised anyone even has to ask this question.

  • i asked out of sarcasm, thanks for entertaining me though

  • sweekymom

    That zig zag pattern on what seems to be the back of the cross looks a lot like a failed attempt at the Waffen SS insignia.

  • TheAlphaSoup

    On some of the news blogs I’ve been reading, people suggested that the cross had links to the occult or some messed up version of Christianity…

    One chilling suggestion was that the 3 notches were one for each victim…Jessica being the third.

    …I desperately need to get some pepper spray.

  • AssWho?

    Nope they really are a bunch of self-important asshats who are more concerned with their ratings than with justice for Jessica. Its Fox 31 NEWS @9….. They have been asshats for years. A good example of their douchery would be to google the once golden child that is Tom Martino….Retarded sensationalized crap.

  • AssWho?

    You can up/down vote your own comment? WTF? This explains a lot………………..also I mainly downvoted because i was disappointed that it took me so long to discover it was possible.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Haha, yes. I noticed that like the day after they deployed the new Disqus format. Nice to know they still haven’t bothered to fix it.

    But you can’t actually vote on your own comments – it’s just a flaw in their code. If you click the up/down vote buttons, the total will update within your browser window to reflect your vote, but it will not actually register the vote with Disqus – refresh the page and when the comments load, your self-vote will be gone.

    An auspicious start to your D’D commenting career. But here, I’ll give you your first upvote to get you started.

  • I hate it when missing persons cases turn out this way. We had a case of a grown woman, Jill Meagher who went missing within 500m of her flat and was raped and murdered. Same thing, a previous attempt on a different woman. That case haunts me to this day because her photo was everywhere, she was beautiful and full of life. I wish there was a way to identify these scum and dispose of them before they cause harm to someone innocent.

  • Richard Johnson

    They do not reveal anything because only the killer knows what they have done and when they question them sooner or later they slip up and tell things that only the killer would know unless some stupid ass reporter who is more concerned about his rating then a killer being captured snoops and puts all the info out in the open and totally destroying the case

  • Phoxee

    Welcome to 3 days ago……….at least. But, I live here in Colorado………although I don’t watch the news. EVEN yahoo had this story. And never said anything about the Michigan chic who ODed with her kids in the room after winning the lottery and being on welfare……….

  • Phoxee

    This is what I’m getting. http://www.womenonguard.com/-strse-433/strongest-pink-stun-gun/Detail.bok
    Colorado is getting too funky……….it’s the new Florida………..eww.

  • malq

    So they can catch the guy! Get it? Also if there is a confession and he blurts something that wasn’t released the confession is all that more solid. Dumb question but thanks for giving me a chance to ridicule you. It makes me feel better.

  • malq

    Is this cedric?

  • malq

    I am glad there is progress, so many unsolved ones and you know it wasn’t their first one, or last.

  • JGo555

    I’m sorry little girl. I hope this was not for sexual purposes.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Thanks for putting that down here so I could find the right people to spew hate all over their FB fan page :

  • Heather_Habilatory

    This isn’t a news site. It doesn’t clamor to be the first site to report on a story. Soooooo… ya know. Talkin shit about how they’re not first on the boat kinds doesn’t really matter. It’s not what they do here.

  • LeaveMeBe

    WTF are you rambling on about?

  • Abroad

    In fairness, if the link is DNA, the person responsible has an impossible task on his plate. Last time I checked, one could not change one’s DNA…….. And if it is not DNA, I don’t want to know.

  • Westminster Police have made an arrest! This is a link to a local news station here, the latest info to my knowledge.

    Man faces charges for abducting, killing Jessica Ridgeway

    Authorities in Colorado have arrested a man in connection with the abduction and slaying of Jessica Ridgeway.
    Charges are expected later against the man in connection with the attempted abduction of a woman jogger.
    Police have called a 1 p.m. news conference.
    The 10-year-old girl disappeared on Oct. 5 while making the 1,000-foot walk to her school. Her backpack and water bottle were later found, reportedly with her clothes, minus her socks, folded inside.
    Trash collectors discovered portions of her remains five days later in a rugged isolated area. Grim-faced law enforcement officials said the search for Jessica had turned into a quest “for Justice for Jessica.”

    Police have said she was abducted and a “predator” is loose in the community. Jessica’s abduction and murder has been connected to the attempted Memorial Day weekend abduction of a 22-year-old jogger.
    Jessica’s father, Jeremy Bryant, and his family live in Independence.
    Donna Moss, Jessica’s great-grandmother, told KCTV5 on Tuesday that she is confident that Jessica’s killer will be caught, and “the sooner, the better.”[…][url]http://www.kctv5.com/story/19903905/police-announce-arrest-in-search-for-jessica-ridgeways-killer[/url]

  • tinalib13

    It’s hard to read sarcasm on the computer.

  • Coyote

    They’ve named the suspect as 17-year-old Austin Reed Sigg.

  • Fux news is pretty good at that shit.

  • Joseph Morris

    Very scary, specially for women. I would highly recommend some sort of affordable self defense weapon, after googling I found http://www.loyaldefender.com/best-pepper-spray-for/women/ which shows pepper spray that most women would be comfortable with using.
