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 fifthnail.com 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.

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 - Jazzijet.blogspot.com: "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.".

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.

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.

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.
