Joseph Edward Duncan III
Accused serial killer Joseph Edward Duncan III has been keeping a blog, called "Blogging the Fifth Nail" on Blogger since January 2004. A Google search finds it described as "The daily thoughts and activities of a 'Level 3 Sex Offender'." Duncan committed his first act of sexual assault 30 years ago, preying on a 5-year-old boy when he was just 12, according to one report.
He is accused of murdering Shasta Groene's family and then abducting her.
The blog, Life With Out Prejudice, on July 11, 2005, is the first place where a connection was made between Duncan and the kidnap and murder of Anthony Michael Martinez, aged 10, Beaumont, CA, on April 4,1997.
On Aug. 3, 2005, more than three weeks after that initial blog post on www.lwop.blogspot.com, authorities announced that Duncan was the prime suspect in the Martinez case.
There is also speculation that Duncan may be responsible for several other kidnapping/murders.
