Joseph Duncan Timeline

This time line of Joseph Edward Duncan, III's life- with emphasis on his criminal history, whereabouts and related details- has been compiled using details from his and other personal websites, public records, court documents, news articles and information received from people who knew him.

The original timeline published in the Cellar 7/9/2005, by MickeyRat when he ran this blog, has been vetted and greatly increased since 7/16/05, when I took over the blog. Since that time, I have corrected any erroneous information, and omitted some that has not been substantiated. Celler Dwellers have been great at poring over all the new documents I have obtained, and helping to winnow down the entries for many of JED's whereabouts on a given date.

It was in a part of downtown were the homeless congregated by the hundreds everyday (on the North side of the Civic Center Plaza). The message impacted me so much that I attempted to commit it to memory. However, I'd forgotten the words years ago, but had written them down trying to capture the exact way it was written. While cleaning out my desk at home just now, I found the little blank book that I had carried with me while I was on the lamb and used to write down such things.

December 10-13, 2003: One of these days he was at Rick's bar attending a SuperLifer show (rock group, I assume). Of course he didn't sign the guestbook on their website until December 20, 2003 @ 11:07 PM, which makes you wonder if he was there or creating an alibi...

December 2003: Spends Christmas with Mother & Brother in Tacoma Washington.

January 3-4, 2004: Begins Blogging the Fifth Nail. First post discusses Leanna 'Beaner' Warner. The first two lines are redundant - "Just found out that a little girl went missing from Chisholm MN on June 14, 2003 (this year). I did not even know until today that this happened." Very Suspicious.

January 8, 2004: "I met Jeff, a “salesman” the other day and will be having lunch with him on Saturday after he meets with some other colleagues for breakfast. Should be interesting." From the fifthnail blog...We now have a pretty good idea that "Jeff" is actually "Joe Crary" They apparently met early January of 2004.

January 10, 2004: "The meeting with Jeff was a bust. I tried calling him at 12:30 and 1:00 but he did not answer." From the fifthnail blog...Maybe this was their first "date".

January 13, 2004: Sex and Mayhem Entry-"Someone told me yesterday that I was different than most other sex offenders because I was only 16 when I committed my crime and have never committed any other sex crimes since (or before). However, the same person said that adult offenders should be castrated and locked up for life." Was this someone his new friend "Jeff"? Wonder if "Jeff" has a site somewhere...

January 22, 2004: 5:59 pm Begins Blogging Personal Thoughts - "I invited "Jeff" (his real name turn out to be "Joe") over for a quicky. He ****** me like a real *****, and I loved it. He was only here for 20 minutes at the most. We are going to do it again Saturday.".

January 29, 2004: Duncan details practically every moment to a "t" on his blog...wonder what he really did this day.

I was going to dive today, and actually started to, but when I got to the lake I turned around and came back. I just hope the dream was for today.

July 3, 2004: Detroit Lakes Middle School playground - molested a 6-year-old boy and tryed to molest an 8-year-old boy (armed with a video camera).

July 9, 2004: HERE WE GO AGAIN Entry - I got a call today from an investigator in a city about an hours drive away from where I live. Apparently I am a suspect for some un-defined incident that occurred last Sunday. He would not tell me anything about what happened, though he did not seem too concerned except to say it was a felony and all felonies are serious (in other words it probably was not too serious at least).The officer wants me to drive to his city to talk to him. I almost told him I would, until he told me I was a suspect (I had to ask). Then I told him I would get back to him after I talk to an attorney.

July 2004: Diving Trip Apostle Island, Wisconsin. (463.5 miles, 7 hours 38 min, 23 turns from Fargo, ND) (I had originally posted the 4-5, that is incorrect. The trip started on a Saturday and ended Sunday. We know where he was on the 3rd so 3-4 is eliminated. That leaves either the 10-11, 17-18, & 24-25 I apologize for the error I just looked at a date incorrectly).

August 13, 14, & 15, 2004: Crosby 2004 Treasure Hunt (Not sure if he was present all days...he was one of the winners at this event.

Weekend of March 11: Micro-vacation to Key West, Dr. Wacksman again. ("Wacksman loaned Duncan about $6,500 before his court appearance in Detroit Lakes. The loan was intended to defray attorney fees" Maybe this is when the transaction took place.)

I'm guessing right after the police address verification on April 1, 2005).

April 5, 2005: Joe Crary of Fargo wrote a check to Duncan in the amount of $15,000 to cover a check for bail that Duncan had written to post his bail in Becker County (Minn.) District Court. April 8, 2005: Updated his profile on Yahoo. (Maybe to get rid of pics and info...everything is blank now).

April 10, 2005: BOHEMIAN UNDERGROUND IS CONCEIVED Entry - As I watch history unfold, I am compelled to help keep it on course. (He quit his job when charges were filed against him, that tells me he is planning to run. Could this be the date he has his "PLAN" drawn out and completed? Also the term "Bohemian Underground" is there more than one person involved in trying to help him run? "At a 1997 parole revocation hearing in Olympia, Wash., Richard Wacksman, a Fargo doctor Duncan had met at a coffeehouse in San Francisco, testified on his behalf. Wacksman said he would support Duncan financially and let him live in his home if he was released"....what's to say he wouldn't do it now, Duncan visited him a week after he was charged. Gears are turning)

April 29, 2005: Duncan’s attorney for the Becker County case, Dennis Fisher of Moorhead, was granted permission to withdraw from representing Duncan because a $10,000 check he had paid for Fisher’s legal services bounced.

May 3, 2005: Minnesota Department of Corrections officer Larry Boomgaarden, who works in Moorhead on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, drove to Duncan's home. Nobody was home, but from outside the front door he saw the cats, and a mountain bike hanging in the porch. Boomgaarden went to NDSU, where the university police chief couldn't find Duncan.

I've wondered about this situation and Joseph Duncan;
He doesn't limit himself to one sex or another or one type or another, and perhaps that is his MO. There are a series of suspected murders throughout Wisconsin, primarily, Michigan, and even down in Athens, Ohio.
All of the young men were good swimmers, some known divers, all "drowned" suspiciously in nothing more than puddles. Considering that Duncan had a "friend", in Perrysburg, Ohio, Jerry Schmidt, who owned, it could very well be that there is a connection.

Please add to the timeline 'when' the video taken of Shasta and Duncan at the convenience store was taken. It was Friday evening, July 1 2005, hours before the arrest at Denny's.
Spyder just posted that he wondered where they were in between that store and Denny's since the 2 places are 1/2 hour apart.

You may also wish to place the date the 2 Washington girls disappeared in 7/96 since it appears Duncan is connected.

Could Duncan be involved in the kidnapping of Jacob Wetterling? I think this was in 1989 and in Minn.
Jacob was 10 or 11 I think.

Looking at Duncan's history, I wonder if he might have paid us a visit here in Skagit County (North of Seattle).

We have an unsolved murder of a young girl, see:

the one thing about this that bothers me is that just becuse a few of these guys do something like this that it is thought that they all are like this which is not the case. there is a united states department of justice study that says they have the lowest reoffense rate of any class of criminal. so what that politions are telling u is all lies.

He is evil personified. He never should have been set free to start with, given all of his sex crimes as a juvenile. That should have given someone a clue that he was not able to be rehabilitated. God bless Shasta for her strength and she will always be in my prayers.

In response to the comment posted 08-27-05 about this class of criminal having the lowest reoffense rate, So What! If you have done it once you are a sick discusting individual who has hurt not only the victim but all of those around the victim. I believe any sex offender is trash and deserves to suffer the rest of their lives. I can say this because I was a victim as a child and to this day it haunts me and no amount of counciling can erase the damage this causes to a victim. I have one wish for all sex offenders may you rot in hell!!

I think he should be in jail for life and then he should died in that chair that kills him for good. he does deserve all of this and more. women and men and boys and girls don't deserve to be raped so many times and we are all not a sex objects and toys also. all of the sex offenders should die and they should suffer for the rest of their lives now. the reason i said this i was raped alot by 3 different men. and all of the sex offenders should not be set free at all. this world would be a better place if there were no sex offenders in this world! these parents should have taught their kids better than raping women and men and boys and girls. I hope all of the sex offenders dies! none of the sex offenders don't need to be release from jail cells.

anonymous says that this class of criminal has the lowest rate of reoffense. I wonder why he is intimate with the study. The parole board thought Duncan was ok to parole. My guess is that anonymous is a sex offender as well.
As for Duncan, If I had my way all sex offenders (particularly ones with Duncans history) would have their nuts and penis cut off and fed to them. Then slautered.

This blog is amazing. The fact that someone took this much time and dedication to look into the background of this accused killer is just wow...this was very eye opening I have been here over an hour reading this information.

when Anthony martinez was missing there was a police sketch released of the man. Can anyone find and post that picture along with a picture of Duncan at the time? There was an attempted kidnapping in beach area a few months prior to Martinez disapearring and I remember that the two suspects looked alike.Is it known if Duncan was in so. the fall of 1996? anyone who commits a crime against a child should never see the light of day again.

[Monters like Ducan and the rest of the evil sex offenders, should be KILLED!! Our Laws need to change and protect human kind!! I pray for each and every boy,girl,men, women, that were raped and killed. May they not suffer anymore for they are all angels. To all parents and everyone else be careful take care and best wishes and prayers. As for all of this Evil People may you burn in hell, soon you too will be in danger and I pray that it happens soon. God Bless you all.. Let's keep God in our prayers..

Since you believe that level lll sex offenders have "the lowest reoffense rate of any class of criminal," then post a government link to this finding. By the way, it's not a "few of these guys" who commit crimes. You are obviously ignorant to the overcrowding of prisons in this country - due to the fact that there are more than a "few of these guys" commiting crimes.

Anonymous said...

The person who stated that"this class of criminal has the lowest reoffense" risk is completely misinformed! It is widely held in the medical community that while many types of criminals can be rehabilitated, including theifs and even murderers, sex offenders are the one type of criminal who CANNOT be rehabilitated no matter what the efforts. Sex offenders do make these choices to offend, however, the desires to repeat these salaious acts never disappear, which ultimately makes for a serious threat for our society, particularly for children. Therefore, many law enforcement officials as well as doctors and psychologists believe that once someone commits a sex crime, particularly against children, it is not a question of WILL that person commit another sex crime, but rather WHEN. Therefore, I believe, as do many other lawmakers, that once a person commits a sex crime against a child/minor, they should be imprisoned immediately upon recognition of the crime, given a fair trial, and then, if convicted, spend the rest of their lives in jail. The safety of our children in the United States should be our utmost concern, not some loser pedofile's rights as a person. In my opinion, they lost that right the moment they invaded that child's innocence and personal well-being. Furthermore, I wouldn't mind the pedofile convict's sexual parts being dismembered as well....

WHAT????? Where did you get your information about sex offenders not re-offending? Being in Law enforcement I can tell you that this class is the highest re-offenders! Please, find your facts before stating! Thanks for the person that put this timeline together it just goes to prove that people like this should be kept in prison for the rest of their lives! We all need to fight the fight and make sure these disgusting human beings are never let out again. Also, the people that have helped out this disgusting human being out are just as guilty. They are as dispicable as he! Shame on you people for paying his bond and giving this worthless piece of crap money. Shame on you!

Preliminary hearing? Didn't he do enough? He should get the DEATH penalty ASAP.

John W. said...

Yes, "preliminary hearing." It's called Due Process - and everyone is entitled to it. Regardless of the evidence. We do not just kill someone before they have a fair trial. Now, that being said, I think this guy should be put to death in the same manner his victims were. That still doesn't mean he shouldn't go through a fair trial process.

I saw a very disturbing interview of a "man" on the Discovery Channel about 10 years ago. He was a convicted pedophile and murderer. It was the most heartbreaking thing a mother could watch.....he had taken a poloroid picture of the 5 year child hanging by his neck in the closet. It broke my heart and has stuck with me all these years. Anyway, the man that had done this was being interviewed from prison and he told the interviewer that he nor ANY pedophiles or sexual predators are rehabilitatible and he wanted to get the death penalty. He stated that if he were to ever get out again, he would try the same again and again. I think we should all reconsider if these people are capable of rehabilitating. I would like to see some definite data or proof. I'm tired and sickened by our children being victimized by these monsters. We are supposed to protect the children at any and all costs!

Anonymous said...

How could this have happened? How could a man like this find people to help him perpetrate his crimes on children? How could any doctor unleash this monster upon children? Is the legal system so run amuck with political correctness that our children must suffer and die at the hands of a man like this? All those who helped Duncan have blood on their hands. But I would not be surprised if deeper investigations show that that also have the blood of many other yet unknown on their hands as well. He should never have been released in Washington but we all know how “liberal and progressive” that state is. As long as the murders are set free and the children are being tortured and killed the liberals will be happy.

How can someone provide a sex offender monetary amounts for $10,000, $15,000, $6,500? plus recommendations to get him free and offers to bring him in their own homes where they have children.
Do they love him or are they out of their minds?

Anonymous said...

It simply is disgusting that the system ever allowed this man to leave the confines of the prison. As I sat here reading each infraction that he committed while in jail, I was dumb-founded that he was let out of jail. May every one that hears of this horrible man heed the warning of the harm released sexual offenders can inflict. Be vigilant and go on line to check the area where you live. I live in a "desired" neighborhood. However, over the last 5 years I have visited my state's website to discover many offenders in the area. I have made certain that my friends know where and who in their neighborhoods are offenders.

First and foremost, I thank the person for creating this timeline for I couldn't stop reading. It was disturbing at times in reading these terrible events. However, it is necessary to take precautions against evildoers. My heart is sadden by how our justice system/laws gambled with society's safety. As we know man's law is not just for the law says every man must have due process. But, ultimately, it's GOD's law that will see that J. Duncan will pay for hurting innocent children. He will have to hear the cries and pleas of all his victims and feel their pains before leaving this earth. As for the people who befriended him - posting bail/writing checks-how could you support him? He didn't need your money he needed the WORD of GOD. He used your friendship for his personal gain to continue his addiction. This man is tormented with so many demons that he doesn't need friends, he needs to beg for forgiveness and have Jesus to save him. To the families and friends of the victims: GOD has everything in divine order.

Thank you to all who spent so much time putting this timeline together. Maybe this should be done for every CONVICTED pedophile in America and published on the web,and newspapers. Maybe alot more crimes would then be solved. It is a shame that he was molested and the cycle continues, but that is no excuse for raping (at gunpoint), molesting and MURDER. We as parents need to keep our children safe and AWARE of possible dangers. We now live in a era with such technologial advances such as AMBER ALERTS, cell phones, etc. I am all for putting tracking devices on these animals and treating them as such. I hope every convicted pedophile rots in PRISON and gets repeately RAPED by fellow inmates. Shame on his sisters, his obvious lack of parent involvement, Dr. Wackman (do you want him to live with your family now?), and to anyone that knew anything about his involvement with these cases. I hope all pedophiles convicted or NOT suffers in eternal HELL, for all the pain you have caused...

Very interesting indeed.

Does not it make you wonder what goes through the minds of these people?

I mean it is impossible for me to conceptualize how or why a person would find this sort of behavior fullfilling.

My family and I were discussing this, and sometimes people get into the topic of, "... Well his dad taught him well, his mom is a basket case, his sisters started the incest, and his homosexuality was at the root of his crimes."

Not true. You can take 2 people, raise them the same, give them both the same abuse, blessing or hard life, and each person can turn out however they choose. Some go bad, others refuse to let the bad past run their life, while others remain in the middle.

The thing is, having wishful vengence to destroy that which destroys is, is in fact, the same evil, the same viciousness, and the same low-level barbaric thinking that was meted out to Duncan's victims.

To wish that anyone suffers the same as he/she caused others to suffer (to me) is not only mosaic law, but more to the point dumb.

Think about it... play it out in your mind as if it were real, and then ask yourself is that what would really make you happy. And if it does, you too, are one sick bastard! Let's try it on for size:

"Oh, wow, look, Duncan has had all his clothes stripped off of him. Someone is pointing a gun at his head, while another forces him to suck another's penis. Now the hammer comes swinging down, and it bashes Duncan in the head. (Oh, yeah!) Then, Duncan's ass is burned with a cigarette. (Gee, how fun.) Next..."

Can you see my point? It is not the awesome movie you imgined it to be. It is just plain sickness even think that somehow this makes you feel better, or that somehow this teaches Duncan a lesson.

It is also only a sick mind that believes the perpetuator somehow needs to feel the same suffering. First of all, the perpetuator may actually enjoy it, and who is going to know for sure what suffering for one is not pure pleasure to another.

I mean think about it. How is that any different than hanging people at the gallows while all the spectators throw tomatoes, etc.

Do you really think that is smarter? Do you really think that places you (the spectator) on a higher plane--or pretty much at the same level.

No. I am not in favor of criminals being set free, nor am I in favor of supposedly rehabilitating them, letting them go, and then having what we have here (repeat, but worse).

Obviously, as it would appear, the jails are too full already, and that is probably why criminals are let out in the first place.

Would not it make a whole lot more sense to terminate (kill) individuals that are not fit to live in a civilzed society? Not in some tortuous way, but simply in a terminal way. As if to say, "It would be nice if you were able to reside in society, but the crimes you commit against it just don't work for the innocent victims that you prey on, so after several years of "trying" to make it, and not being able to, well, you have to go. This would end the vicious cycle, this would end the repeat offender syndrome, this would send a very clear message to "would be" perpetuators, and even if it didn't, well, they would soon be eliminated also, and without a doubt it would tell the rest of us, "Hey, you don't want to be here (earth), and you want to die? You can. Just mess up a few times too many, and out you go."

I suppose my thinking sounds crazy, but how many times do we have to witness the same old same old, until we all start to recognize allowing this sort of thing is only going to ensure that it continues.

It amazes me how people get all worked up over this and other similar events and then we go through all this drama, only to be let down (person gets off on some technicality), further victimized, and continually plagued.

I truly don't desire that Duncan be tortured, etc. I think he was born into a very unfortunate family, continued to feed his mind desctructive thought processes, and who knows, maybe is chemically unbalanced, stupid, etc. Either way, his actions have been painful to say the least, and he should be terminated. Not that I don't care, but do we really have the resouces to keep allowing people of this nature to waste everyone else's time and money?

Think of all the jobs that have been created, all the funds spent, federal tax dollars, state tax dollars, county monies, community member's time in fund raising, media efforts, and probably the millions of people's lives who have been touched mildly, moreso, and even heavily. Think of all the emotions and fear and downright hatred that millions have invariably become involved in, and how the bottom line truth is, we just don't need it.

I say, send a message to all...."certain things are not going to be allowed, tolerated, etc., and when/if you (or someone) does these certain things, well you don't get to keep living any more in this wonderful country of ours, and you don't get the rights that other abiding citizen enjoy. You basically, go to a screening place (prison), you are given the chance (in a seudo society) to work, get along and live your life. If you can make it there, fine, there you stay (assuming you make it very good from that point forward). If you can't make it in that society either, then you are terminated.

The seudo society would not be set up like the jails are now, where inmates sit around and watch TV and wait for their appeal. No.

It would be a society where you work, you pay bills, you do just what you do in real society, but you have not as many rights, you are not free, yet the society is self-supporting and produces something of value. A pay-your-way system. Not a leachbag bag system like the current system provides.

And in short, if you can't make it there, and make it out, then you get terminated.

It is my theory, that if you were wrongfully convicted, then you would (hopefully) make it out of the seudo society, and you would get your life back in time.

On the other hand, if you kept having problems within the seudo society, maybe the point is, is that you don't know how to make in any society and perhaps death does in fact make sense.

I suppose my ideas are extreme and way out there, but I fail to see how reducing oneself to the same barbaric level of Duncan hardly makes any more sense than my wacko plan.

Either way, the message is simple. Don't step down to the same level just because you are mad. Do something that actually solves the problem.

I would like to find out where Duncan was the night Danielle Va Dam disappeared from her home. I know there is a man already convicted for this crime, but I have always doubted his guilt.

Anonymous said...

You are absolutely AMAZING!!
I send lots of love and light to you for taking so much time and effort to educate us all. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
I too doubt the man convicted of Danielle Van Dam's murder. I would love to find out about Duncan and that one. A guy who has had no previous sexual predator experience, did that one? With no real hard evidence? I never believed it, for a moment.
Also, these people David Woelfert, Dr. Wacksman and Joe Crary are all very suspicious creatures. I wonder if they are not pedophiles, too. There are alot of pedophile organizations, ect. They have had to change the names of their groups more recently, but I know they are still out there. They definitely support each other. I would love to see some background checks on those 3 guys!
Also, more importantly, how about the step-grandfather? He was a convicted sex offender. How much time did he spend with Duncan growing up? What was Duncan's adult contact with him? Where did his sister's get this from?
This was a sexualized, incested family! Where are his sisters now? What family relatives molested them first? And furthermore, who else did his sisters molest in the neighborhood and childhood friends?
This is how you REALLY crack down on sex offenders. Follow the whole family tree.....You will find a WHOLE LOT OF VICTIMS!!

Very sad but true! We need to continue to educate.......

I can't beleive that this sick bastard was ever let out of prison the first time. And i think there is only one good punishment for him now. Cut his ball off stuff them in his month, stich his month shut and let the bastard starve to death while not being able to eat anything but his own nuts. and if he is not dead in at least two days then take him out and put him in front of a big tree tied to it and let a out of control 18 wheeler hit him head on about 80 miles an hour be sure to set the truck up with remote control so no one else is hurt in the wreck. then again this might be too good for him. Better yet drop him out of an airplane from about 5,000 feet onto a big paved parking lot and watch him go splat.

I too believe that the Duncan's sisters, step father, "uncle in the closet" whoever it is in the family structure known to be overtly deviant should be identified. Who are they, what part do they play in the development of the child. Who ever blamed the family is right on...and to think his family still lives here in Tacoma. What really bothers me and has since my arrival in Tacoma in 2003 ... is the fact Pierce County and the City of Tacoma know full well what prison trash they dump into mainstream Tacoma. Men coming out of McNeil Island (sex offenders/ murderers)who reside in transition houses and go to court ordered substance abuse programs...they are lethal weapons waiting to go off. They ingrain themselves into the lives of unsuspecting people and then think nothing of harming those individuals and their children.I say to anyone living and working in Pierce County/ City of Tacoma.. do your homework find out who lives and works around you...and be prepared for the Duncan's of the world. As long as we are forced to live amoung people who have deviant tendencies we should know who they are.

WWW.MAPSEXOFFENDERS.COM is a website that you can visit and find ALL THE SEX OFFENDERS that have to register. It outputs the data (sex offenders) to a map which pinpoints exactly where they live in relation to where your at. It's FREE!! TRY IT!

After this Duncan clown was captured, I did a search of my zip code (37160) via the Tennessee Sex Offender Registry. Out of 25 idividuals listed, three had their whereabouts marked as "UNKNOWN". What strikes me is that these people sit down in front of their TVs, they see the devastation wrought by their own kind upon some kid's family, they see what could happen to them when they are captured and go to jail, yet it will never stop the next predator from going after another kid. These people just don't give a damn about anything or anyone except getting their hands on another kid.

I strongly believe that we should do a lot more to these sex offenders than just know where they are. A live sex offender means a dead child. Period. Think of the opposite.

I have to agree with the people who say a sex offender should have his balls and penis removed and feed to them. I can say this because my own daughter was molested by her own father and I wish I could kill the man myself. I only wish the country would do more to the people who commit these crimes, then just put them in prison. They deserve to die.

My prayers our with you Shasta everyday. For the child molestors - you are sick. As a child I was repeatly violated by a step-father who killed my cat in front of me then threaten to kill my mother if I ever told. He is dead now but I am still haunted by his actions and voilations. I still have a brick wall that I will live with for the rest of my life. But as a professional I have moved on and hold a job. I am now 46 and have a 13 year old daughter that I constantly remind of registered offenders in the local area. We victims suffer for the rest of our lives and these bastereds are protected. Let the prisioners do as they wish with each other - it saves my tax dollars why should my tax dollars go to saving the perpetrator? And who in their right mind can really say that someone is fit to go back into society after violating a child. I get so discussed to hear that someone did their time so we need to let them move on with their lifes and be citizens. I am for branding their forehead or taking a finger for every offense. We victims suffer for the rest of our lives but these individuals (both male and female) get three free meals and protection - does that make since?

I think all sex offenders should be locked up, and thow away the key. My second strong feeling is they should all get the death penalty to get them off this earth. I am sick and tired of hearing about sex offenders, there are too many, they are causing too much harm to the children of this world, and it has to stop, NOW!!They cannot be rehabilitated. And anyone who believes they can, have you ever known one to be rehabilitated, no desires to ever do it again? I don't think so. I had the unfortunate opportunity to meet someone, didn't know he was a sex offender. A year later, he was arrested for 19 counts against his own son!! I had no idea! My daughter was 4 at the time, and it sickens me to even think that he may have done something to her. and that is still to this day. She never said anything about it, and I repeatedly questioned her, and she knows about "good touch" "bad touch". After his arrest, I went to the county building and read his file....oh my God, I could not believe the file on this bastard. He had done this more than once before, come to find out...the first time he was put on probabtion...then 2 years later, oops, he did it again!! The second time he did a little bit of time. Maybe a couple of years, and sent to some place in Texas to "rehabilitate". This time he got 0-15 years..the maximum, he plead no contest on all occasions. I do not feel that this should be allowed to get a lesser sentence, for if he had gone to trial, he could have gotten life...which is what he deserves. Oh yea, we know about the sex offenders who have to register, but what about the ones who don't?? We have one in the family, and because he is a minor, (17), he doesn't have to register, he was placed in a program to "rehabilitate" him...yea, until he does it agian, after doing harm to the children in my family. Free to do as he pleases, even though on probation and do more harm to other kids, because you darn well he will. Shasta, bless you for all you went through as well as all the children in the world who had to endure these sex offenders.

I posted the above comments on having a seudo society. I would like to clarify something. The idea that a sex offender can be returned to society after "proving" himself is total B.S.

The only reason that was even mentioned, is because there is always this populous that says, "Oh, but how do you kill someone who was wrongfully convicted."

The point is, say a person is somehow wrongfully convicted. It would seem to me (but what do I know) that they would work themselves through the system, and in time get out. That is what I meant... in "letting them go".

But look at Duncan, for example. Did he do that? No. According to the information above (which for this discussion we will assume is generally accurate), he refused to complete several of the required programs. That is what I was talking about. Say the person was wrongfully convicted. I know if I were in that predicament (wrongfully accused), I would be doing everything I could to show the world this is not what I am all about. I would not be "refusing treatment", I would not be visiting family when I was supposed to be in a group session, I would not be jeopardizing my already questionable character by doing drugs (marijuana) while on parole. No way. I would be so far away from anything that even remotely would cause me trouble in any way shape or form.

But that is the difference: A) I would not be in there in the first place. B) Duncan had many, many incidents of the same old story. C) When a person repeatedly has the same thing over and over, it is not to difficult to ascertain they are guilty.

The whole idea that one would get out of the seudo society, assumes they are not a REPEAT offender, they demonstrate capacity to "function" within the system, and only, and I MEAN ONLY in such a situation would it make sense to let the person go. After all, there are "sometimes" cases that are wrongfully accused.

For example, someone made mention of a person (in an above post) who was convicted of a sex crime who is in prision now, and the blogger said they suspect it might have been Duncan who really did the crime. And that the one convicted is falsely accused.

Well, say that was your husband or brother that was going to the electric chair because capital punishment was the absolute result for sex offenders. My point is, it would be nice if there was a way out for these wrongfully accused people.

I have a cousin. He is not a sex offender. Yet, he currently is accused for molesting his daughter. The state came in, interviewed the child, and it was determined he molested her. Now, I supposed many of you feel that he did it. Truthfully, I don't know. But what I do know, is I have known him all his life, he has never struck me as the type who would be even remotely interested in that sort of thing, yet all the "so called" evidence suggests otherwise.

The thing is, his wife wanted a divorce but had no money of her own, and was a known thief, as she had stay with various family members, and each time she did, things, money, etc. would turn up missing. Later, she would confess, appologize, and we would all naturally foregive her.

But later in their 5 year marriage, the system told her (the state of Utah) that if she divorced, and did not press charges (against her husband relating to the child molesting case), she would receive no public assistance from the state.

Now, let me just add, there has never been incest in "his" family, his mom and dad are decent human beings with good credit, they are not drunks, avoid even rated R movies, and have always raised their kids in a clean, respectable, non-yelling environment/home.

As one might imagine, all their sons and daughters have healthy boundaries, are educated, clean, drug free, healthy individuals. They all graduated from H.S. most have also graduated from college (those who haven't are too young), and have absolutely no criminal record--if even a speeding ticket.

Anyway, the now ex-wife went ahead and did a full court press. Well, it turns out, that after all the muck, she admits to lying about so many of the things saying, she was confused, mad at her husband, and felt that he deserved to go through all that.

Truthfully, I know my cousin, and I know that he is an honest, decent person. I also know that his wife, is on prozac, and pretty much (in my opinon) an unstable person.

So, for this reason, and this remote possibility only, did I speak about a person "getting out". Buton the other hand, if that same person can't do the simplest things related to rehab programs, rules, appts, etc., then who says they can do it in the real world?

Kinda like saying, "if you want out of here, you are gonna have to prove your innocence. If you can't do that, then you'll fry."

Maybe that is harsh, but remember, I really don't feel that society should be burdened with criminals--especially sex offenders, who destroy irreparably other people's lives and families, and then go on living. Many say, well it's more punishment to have to live in prison, than it is to just die.

Could be. But that is not the point. I think the objective should be to eliminate the perpetual cycle of predators who were first victims. If you stop the victimizing, it seems reasonable to conclude less predators will be created and therefore, the cycle is less perpetuated. I know it is harsh and unfortunate, but it could end the suffering for so many more innocent CHILDREN.

That is why I feel the death penalty is appropriate, so that their incarceration costs are eliminated, and much more important, they CAN NOT afflict (create) another predator.

Perhaps, also, would be individuals that even think about visiting that scene, would say, "No, way, I am not even thinking about such a fantasy, cuz death is certain, and I have way too much to lose."

Who knows, maybe such people don't just casually wander into such realms. And if they don't then, disregard the last paragraph. But even still, if they do, then such consequences would surely cause 1 more person to stop and think, and if not true, then at least those who are AFFLICTED with that lifestyle would eventually be weeded out.

As far as a brutal killing (by us)to satisfy one's own rage.... get some therapy already.

And just so you know, I was stripped, tied to a cell wall, and brutalized while I spent less than 24 hours in jail, so to say I don't know anything, well, let's just say, I know enough.

No. I can't put myself into the position of so many of these victims, as my experience was probably not as tramatic. But what I can tell you is, I was terrified, I was scared to death, and I was in shock for weeks after that.

I was 18 and 3 days old, my license had been revoked when I was 14. The state sent a letter saying it had been dismissed, and 3 days after my 18th birthday, I was pulled over for having my lights on bright while driving in the city. My record was ran, I had no record except driving without a license when I was 14, and the $25 reinstatement fee had never been paid (we never even knew it needed to be paid), and though I had a completely valid license in an ajoining state, my license was still revoked in the state I was now driving in.

So I was taken to jail, and in the very early morning (about 5 AM) when the cell doors were unlocked, 5 guys came into my cell, took me while asleep and tied me me to a cell wall with torn sheet strips.

They gagged my mouth with sheet strips and tied a gag around my head to hold the ball of sheet strips in my mouth. I could not scream, I could not defend myself, I truly did not have the slightest clue what was going on or what they wanted.

I was very naive in the way I was raised. I was still a virgin, an eagle scout, and never did the sort of things that most guys did (that got in trouble). I had never used drugs, even tasted alcohol, or smoked a cigarette.

I had a girl friend, but was raised under the notion that you have sex after marriage. So to say I was naive is clearly an understatement.

Well, the point is, the reason I don't claim to have been raped, is because the guy could not get hard that had agreed to f*** me.

(Apparently, he had told the other 5 he would do me, if they tied me to the wall, etc.)

And possibly because I started sobbing as the guy approached me all naked and ready to do me, and possibly because there was 1 guy who felt sorry for me, who told the other guys in the ring to let me go, the perpetrator went soft and said he could not go through with it because he was not gay (as if that had anything to do with it.)

P.S. During this whole time, there were no less than 20 other guys just standing around watching the 5 guys tie me up and assault me.

But prior to the moment of truth (so to speak) I did experience a broom stick up my ass, and I was fully humiliated in various way, and I was scared to death, and just like in movies, after the fact, was curled up into a ball, and in shock for hours...

And every part of my body was fondled, and the whole thought of having a guy "do me" seemed so horrifically scary.

About 10 hours later I was arraigned, and one of the guys (in the 5) gave me another cover alls (to wear) that did not have the crotch torn out of it, and was told that if I didn't take it, wear it during my arraignment (in the court room) and even thought about telling anyone, I would be f***ed again, but this time "all the way".

I did not know anything. I knew I was scared out of my mind. I knew all I wanted was to get outta there so fast, I took the untorn coveralls, put them on, went to the court room, did not say a word, got out, and then went home and cried like a baby.

I wanted vengence, I wanted them to pay. I want the county to be sued. Not one attorney would touch the case because they all said, "We live here, and if we sue the county, they won't like us any more and we won't have a livlihood anymore in this town."

So, then I went to the doctor, and was told, "So you have been buggared, have you?"

(I never said I was never penetrated. The chafing and redness suggested otherwise, so I let the doctor assume as he did.)

And all he said was, well, these things happen. And as long as you can put it behind you, you won't need counseling, but if you can't, then you should get some therapy.

He said, "You can go on with your life just fine, it's your choice."

I told the doctor I wanted to press charges against the inmates, I wanted to sue the county, and I wanted this sort of thing to be stopped.

I was told by the doctor, it won't do any good. It won't amount to a settlement, and the inmates won't be charged.

So, I, after about 30 days, did let it go, and could only speak of it about 9 years later.

Now, I realize that it was terrible, but I also realize it happens. So, that is probably why I am more interested in a CURE than a payment in the form of more suffering.

Sure, I would like to torture the hell outta the guys that did that to me.

But truthfully, I have imagined what I would do to them, and it just not bring me any happiness.

"It does nothing for me!"

It does not turn me on, it does not make me feel better, and it does not teach these losers anything.

What WOULD make me feel better, is if ALL sex offenders with more than one incident would be terminated. That's all. Then in time, there would clearly be less sex offenders.

R. Turcotte disappeared and was found in Fargo at the same time that Duncan was there. The offender wasn't caught. Please, someone that knows what to do with this information take it to the right people so that they may check it out and hopefully bring closure to his family and friends. Thank You

I've been watching this story from the begining and it just breaks my heart to know what that bastard did to those two children and who knows how many others. I agree with alot of people that think he should just be put to death, but I think he deserves to be torchered just like those kids were first. I don't think there should be a trial, or any of that. Everybody knows he did what he did and why waste the money or time to go through a trial. People like him should just be put into population in a prison and let the inmates have their way. I've never been to prison but I do know for a fact the WORST thing to get locked up for is any crime against a child. Duncan was already locked up for this before and for some dumbass reason the state let him out, knowing he would re-offend. Now most people say when someones served their time they've payed their debt so give them another chance, right? Well this sadistic, sick mother#%!(er had his chance now he deserves whatever he gets. But don't just give him death, put him in the worst environment possible so he can see what it's like to be the one scared and not able to get away!!! I have 2 kids about the same ages as Shasta and Dillan and if something like this was to ever happen to them I would be out for blood!! No child should ever have to be put through such a horrific expierience. Duncan needs no trial, just put him in population in one of the states most violent prisons. He'll get his and it won't be nice.

Well, in regards to "He'll get his," I can only hope that the stories we hear about child murderers and child sex offenders is true; that he will be raped and murdered in prison. Sadly, there will probably be an outpour of bleeding heart citizens who will want to protect Duncan and ensure his safety from other inmates as he is simply "misunderstood" and just needs a hug.

My personal opinion is that we need a "one strike" law against child molestors and murderers. If any citizen has the audacity and lack of morals to commit a crime against any child - I cannot trust the low chance that the person can be "rehabilitated."

Although this may seem unfair to many, if a law such as this was in effect - I would trust that many would-be child molestors would think a little more before carrying out such a sick act on a child.

Any thoughts?

Here's an idea to reduce prison overcrowding: let the pot smokers go. Pretty stupid system that crowds the prisons with harmless puffers so that we have to mollycoddle the truly evil like Duncan. We're already the world's most imprisoned population, let's apply common sense to relieve the overcrowding so we can concentrate on locking up the filth that truly threaten our children.

To "Anonymous" and his/her suggestion on releasing marijuana offenders:

Although I do not smoke pot/marijuana, I agree with you. Our "war against this drug" is an ever-losing one. From the studies I have read, it appears that marijuana isn't much different from the negative effects of alcohol. If legalized, our goverment could tax it which could generate money to fund programs to fight more problematic drugs such as meth, cocaine, heroin, etc.

What is the disturbing about this situation (besides the obvious) is that the US legal system let this pervert out of prison. How could someone, with such a sickening record of child molestation, be allowed to roam the streets and prey on other young victims? People like this make me believe in the justice of the death penalty. After killing so many children, and causing so much pain and suffering, he deserves no less than the death that he deserves.

Im impressed by the research put into this summary of this scumbags life. Im amazed Washington let him out without even probation supervision and how they could rule him not a predator when he admitted to dozens of victims by the time he was caught at 16. And how did the fingerprint in the Anthony Martinez case get missed? Duncan would've been on NCIC and the fingerprint would've been on file. How did they not run it and find out it was him years ago? Some sloppy police work here. Yes sex offenders have lower reoffense rates then most criminals but not all sex offenders fall into this category. Incest offenders reoffend very low while pedophiles offend at rates of 30-40% according to USDOJ studies. Besides this pervert didn't molest anyone he knew he raped a stranger at gunpoint at age 16. He was clearly a predator and given his failure to attend therapy in jail he should've been committed and never been let out.

Our society has misplaced priorities. Consider that a child who is raped, suffers PTSD, and develops a drug problem could very well serve more time for the drugs than her rapist would for the sexual assault. Additionally, she would lose college financial aid for the drug "crime", but her rapist would still be eligible to receive a Pell Grant. We have federal mandatory minimum sentencing for drugs, but not for child rape and murder. We have a war on drugs. We NEED a war on pedophiles. And if we could lock more of these sick bastards away for life, we would see our drug use rates drop because we would have less victims trying to self-medicate post-traumatic symptoms.

People like this need to be exterminated...they get no second chance (or 3rd, 4th...) The lawmakers must fix these laws that allow for short prison terms. The laws of human nature say you can not, under any circumstances do something like this. I makes me sick to hear about these scumbags living among us.

hmmm, I think killing this kind of individual is too kind. If I had my way he'd be tied up naked, force fed, and bled/tortured daily. I try to avoid avdocating for eye-for-an-eye, but sometimes people are just so disgusting that it seems nothing short of making them suffer the same sort of pain, by any means available, as their victims seems appropriate. It really makes me think about morality, right and wrong. I don't think I really believe that I would approve of what I have suggested because there's something wrong with him that's probably hard-wired into his brain that he has no control over (and other's responsible for the same type of behavior). I'm not saying he's a victim. I am just proposing that it is worhtwhile to consider the whole picture.

I've been suicidal too many times in my life, maybe it's my brain, the sexual, physical, and psychological abuse I suffered as a child, or just being too sensitive and not cut out for this world. Having said that, I don't see death as a punishment. It's really an escape for the criminal. When you're dead you don't have to deal directly with what you've done in this life. And there are some sins that not even God will forgive; at best I think such an individual might be granted some sort of embodiment as a numb observer. If there are chances to progress up the spiritual ladder through reincarnation, then perhaps there is hope. If anyone is hurt by putting another to death it is his or her family. While that might be motivation for some sentenced to death after the fact, I don't think that pretense would do very much to stem criminal behavior, particularly by individuals as disturbed as this man.

April 12, 2005 - Duncan is seen stalking children in a park near his home and a police report is filed.

Anonymous said...

I want to comment on something that I couple of people touched on, but didn't really get the severity of the situation. Duncan was molested by his sisters when he was young. They were also young. Why would they do this? Obviously they had been molested themselves.

So even though they started his troubles, they were themselves victims. Who molested them? There's the real story. That's the person that should also be looked into... they couldn't have been his only victims.

The system we have does nothing to help these people. Why did so many people believe in Duncan? He is obviously a very smart guy. He was probably a nice person too... but he had a horrible problem that he couldn't control. He almost got his life together, but he didn't know how. How could he? He was in prison most of his adult life.

He could be anyone's friend or family member.. even child. How would you feel about him then?

He did unspeakably awful things. Truly horrendous things. And he deserves what ever punishment he receives. But still I have to feel sorry for the guy because he never got a real chance in life... that was taken away from him by the adult who molested his sisters.. and probably him as well.

"But still I have to feel sorry for the guy....."

The "guy" that the above poster refers to is none other than the child raping, child torturing and child killing offender in question...You fucking moron. As long as there are people like you in this world, there will be people like Duncan. Why don't you get together with him, give him a big "it'll all be better soon" hug and then jump off the nearest fucking cliff, hand in hand. Scratch one offending maggot; Scratch one apologist and the world is a slightly better place.....

Thank you to the writers for the information and time spent. I feel sick, I have cried and cried and I feel so horrified for Shasta and her father as well. They will both have to live with this forever, but I also fear for Shasta, she will be reliving the actual horrors forever and my heart weeps for her. Oh Good Lord you said you would never give us more than we can handle?

Where is the redo button for Shasta's memories? If hypnotism really exists, I would have to choose to be completely brainwashed into believing I lived a completely different life prior to a single click of the hypnotist's fingers.

Like others, I strongly feel that David "Pumpkin" Woelfert, and the so called Dr. (Wacko) Wackman, as well as a few others mentioned in this were involved through some type of sick underground child pornographic ring. With everything going on, they all give him money to help him run, Dr. Wacko even failed to report a call from this known fugitive. Please, why have they not been heavily investigated. This is the one and only time I think it would have been okay for the police/FBI to violate their right to privacy by digging through all their electronics, VCR's, computers, etc. Just think what could be unmasked comparing and putting together all their contacts.

I strongly feel that Duncan killed many more than the suspected individuals written of here and I am sure Duncan will be telling of them in the near future if he has not already started spilling to the authorities. I think every entry he made online can be looked at as a clue. Especially those entries indicating any event he went to or trip he made. Whether it was code for his porno friends, or the game he was playing, cat and mouse if you will. He was enjoying covering his tracks, while he committed his crimes, so each time he wrote of his activities, he was laughing at the law. It gave him satisfaction in outwitting any possible investigaton. I also believe it was not only children he hurt/killed/raped. I believe every time he mentioned he will explore his sexuality, with men or women (which ever it was at that time) you will find a missing person or two wherever he was at then, just prior to or just after that statement.

Like others, I also believe that Duncan and his siblings were sexually and otherwise abused by adults in their childhood. But as a victim myself, I know, not all victims grow up victimizing others. Some invert and have trouble overcoming, trusting, getting involved wholely with others, no matter how much they want to, they can't. In comparison, it's not a problem.

I feel so discouraged that this life we spend on earth will never be rid of dispicable crimes such as this. It is so natural to display hate and vote for death, or cutting body parts off and shoving in the mouths of these inhuman lunatics. To criticise the system, to say we want change and more harsh penalties. But there is no one penalty that will solve our problems. If we do such things to these pigs, we become as disgustingly animalistic as them. Our hate just seems to bring more problems in our society. I am a Christian. These pigs are clearly Satan's spawn.

Facing this ugliness makes me realize I am a bigot in my Christianity. God forgive me if I am wrong, but I'm not so sure anymore we here on earth can wait for your judgment of these pigs. They can't be here to harm others without a solution to actually prevent other's to be led astray. I think all minor to 21 yr old criminal gangsters should be placed in one prison, all cell doors open. Leave it up to them to close and lock their doors. Do your time and learn what your future will be without a drastic change in your life. But be very aware, if and when you ever get out, if you come back, you will not have a door to close. Mama's don't let your babies grow up to be gangsters! Mama's and Papa's, if you end up in prison for neglicting or hurting your own children, you will never get a door to close. For each crime, of rape of anyone, child or not, you should never have a door. For each violent crime, the same. I think any white collar crime should have the option of a door one time, but the second time, they should be placed with the violent offenders, door open. These people chose their life and made the decision of their crimes. They should get it together themselves, defend themselves, cook and clean for themselves, etc. Why should we have men and women endangering their lives to even approach some of these people to feed them anymore. It would be justifiable to have guards around the top of the walls of these prisons, only to assure there were no escapes. While this would be extremely difficult to start, I can see that balancing for the better in time. I think crime would drop drastically, and I think we could have a decent scared straight program that would actually work for all ages who appear to be straying. Okay, to much info.

I'm a military parent and I can't leave this one alone. We have a legitimate problem in our country today. People like this are let out of prison after doing the same thing on more than one occasion. The justice system is as guilty for producing such a monster as his parents and family. People contend that he is sick and needs help. I agree he is sick but he's also beyond help. He and so many others like him are. It's not our place to sort their problems out. They are still adults and with that there is accountability. This man and everyone else in this world like him need to be culled. And not in a nice way either. You don't see as much of this overseas. Why? Because the punishment is far worse. Make an example. Who cares if it infringes on their human rights. He hit a 13 year old kid with a hammer until he died. He tortured and murdered a 9 year old perhaps many more. No this goes way beyond that. These people are undeserving of our humanity. When these people are found guilty simply strip them down and drag them behind a truck till there is nothing left down a crowded street. We are bringing this upon ourselves. I have two little girls and should anything ever happen to them I can promise you. I WILL take matters into my own hands no matter what the penalty. We are a weak people who can't protect our children. Let's learn from those countries who don't have this problem. Let's start making the punishment mean something. It simply makes me want to wretch and vomit.

I look at the situation like this, what does society do with a rabid animal that they know will attack and is dangerous??? They euthanize it. Duncan does not deserve the right to breath the same air as we do. It makes me ill to think that he gets to eat, sleep, and breath everyday while so many were taken away from this world by his hands. I wish him some horrible disease that slowly eats at his body and may the fires of hell be waiting for him.
