Not too long ago I posted about the MySpace of convicted killer, lifer, and mutant Brian Draper. Draper is one of the teen killers convicted in the 2006 slashing death of someone whom they called their friend, Cassie Jo Stoddart.
I theorized that his MySpace was obviously written by either a member of his family or an advocate who believes that teens should never be charged as adults. I came to that hypothesis after I noticed the proper grammar which I doubt Draper has and the fact that prison inmates usually don’t have access to the internet. It seems that one of my readers tipped off the local media to Draper’s MySpace.
We’ve previously reported on a website that supports Torey Adamcik’s innocence called Voices for Torey. Thanks to a viewer, we tracked down a commentary page that negatively outlines the possibility of Brian Draper updating his myspace page from prison.
Earlier this month, “A Murderer’s Disguise” was posted on the website called The Trenchcoat Chronicles. On it, Trench Reynolds debunks the idea that Draper can access the internet saying, among other things, that the two teenagers have become poster boys for people who believe teens should not be charged as adults. Reynolds simply states that someone else must be maintaining the personal page.
KPVI then followed up on my assumptions and called the Idaho Department of Corrections. They have confirmed that inmates do not have access to the internet. So is it being maintained by family or an advocate? Is Draper actually in the programs that he claims and is it just for show?
None of this could have been possible if it wasn’t for the watchful eye of Mr. A who brought my attention to Draper’s MySpace in the first place.
