Brianna Denison Case



There has been an arrest in the Brianna Denison case.

Recap: Brianna was visiting with friends at the University of Nevada where she was staying over a friend's off campus apartment after a night of partying. The last time she was seen, she was asleep on the sofa. In the morning her friends discovered a small bloodstain on her pillow, she was gone, but her purse, keys and cellphone were left behind. It was determined that a glass door by where she was asleep was left open.

Brianna's body was found days later in a field covered with snow, she had been sexually assaulted and strangled.

The DNA left on Brianna's body has been linked to other victims in the area. The serial rapist and now killer has a signature calling card, he steals his current victim's underwear and replaces it with the underwear of his last victim.

UPDATE:
27 year old James Biela was arrested and charge with 1st degree murder and kidnapping. There is a press conference scheduled for today and I hope to get more details.

I just found out about his arrest. Great news !!

According to what I've been reading in the comment's section, of the article about the arrest, on rgj.com .... he was arrested outside 'Stepping Stones' daycare center. He also may have been a marine or an ex-marine and may live in Sparks with his girlfriend and his 4 year old son. Someone, with a name like his, is listed on a Reno martal arts site http://www.bjjreno.com/beltranking.htm as having the ranking of a blue belt.
Another poster also says that if this is the person he was 'researching' then he may have been at Camp Lejeune recently.

All I can say, is if this is indeed Brianna's killer and the police seem to be all but saying that it is ... there are many of us in the Reno area, who will be sleeping a little sounder tonight.

Good work on the part of our local PD !!!!
