DPD confirms: LGNA Crimewatch made it all up

DPD officials confirmed to BD Monday afternoon they did not tell Darren Dattalo, coordinator of the so-called LGNA Crimewatch, that the March 15th rape at Lllano and Greenville was committed by a homeless person or that he was or was not a predator.

BD spoke to DPD officials in Central Division, as have many other residents, about this statement sent to LGNA's very small and controlled Crimewatch list.

Frankly, this was a homeless person who saw an opportunity and grabbed it.

The police don't have any reason to believe this was a predator out looking for someone to rape but they can't rule that out either.
