UPDATE I: Police believe missing Gilbert woman killed during rape by Jonathan Burns

Police believe that ex-convict Jonathan Burns raped and murdered Jackie Hartman. Burns has been arrested on charges of sexual assault in the case. Just another case of a predator on the loose and an unsuspecting victim in the wrong place at the wrong time. Can we brand ex-cons to let people know who and what they are dealing with at this point? Jackie Hartman’s clothes, including a bloody shirt, bra and panties near Burn’s home.

Hartman was last seen with Burns at about 2 a.m. Sunday, and was supposed to meet her sister about three hours later. While being questioned by police, Burns admitted having sex with her and said he dropped her off about 5 a.m. and went home, according to the probable cause statement.

But cell phone records show he drove north on Highway 87 during that time and was unaccounted for between 5 a.m. and 11 a.m. Sunday, the court record shows. Officers searching near his apartment found Hartman’s purse, sandals, shirt, bra and panties in a trash bin near Burns’ home.

The shirt and bra were ripped in half, and there were what appeared to be bullet holes in the bloody shirt, officers wrote. (KVOA News 4)

UPDATE II: Arrest linked to missing woman

It has literally gotten to the point that back ground checks are needed before girls go out on dates. What a sad story and rather heinous act that this ex-con committed.

A 25-year-old felon has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault after police found a missing Gilbert woman’s bullet-ridden, torn clothing in a dumpster near his home, according to court documents.

Burns spent more than seven years in Arizona prisons on convictions of burglary, promoting prison contraband and an arson offense, according to the Arizona Department of Corrections Web site.

Duncan said police believe Hartman and Burns were acquaintances, although details of how they met were sketchy. “We are still looking for Jackie,” Duncan said. (AZ Central)
According to her family, Jacquelan “Jackie” Hartman, 19, was on her first date when she was reported missing early Sunday morning.

UPDATE III: Missing Gilbert woman, Jacquelan “Jackie” Hartman, met man at gas station

The man suspected of kidnapping and raping a missing Gilbert woman met her at a gas station days before her disappearance, said Daniel Smith, 20, who works at Banner Baywood Hospital with the 19-year-old woman.

“She didn’t know what she was getting herself into,” Smith said. (East Valley Tribune)

UPDATE IV: Police seek missing woman’s clothing

Police are asking for the public’s help locating clothing last worn by a missing 19-year-old Gilbert woman as they work this weekend to find her.
the public’s help is needed in locating the tan sweater and blue jeans, which could be anywhere from Chandler, where other evidence was found, to Sunflower, Ruet said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Gilbert police at (480) 503-6500 (AZ Central)

UPDATE V: Search continues for missing Gilbert teen

The search continues for the 19 year old missing nursing school student Jackie Hartman. Volunteers and authorities alike helped in the search for Jackie.

Hundreds of volunteers and police continue to scour the desert northeast of metro Phoenix in search of a 19-year-old nursing student, who is thought to have been brutally raped and murdered.
Volunteers picked through the prickly pear and mesquite on foot, horseback, ATVs and dirt bikes Saturday in search of Jackie Hartman of Gilbert.

Police believe Hartmans body may have been dumped in the wilderness between Fountain Hills and Payson, where Burns used his cell phone within a few hours of Hartmans disappearance.
Because of the uncertainty about whether Hartman is alive, police sent two types of K-9 units Saturday: tracking dogs to sniff for her scent, and cadaver dogs to scout for decomposition.
“We’ll be here as long as it takes, or until sundown,” said Barbara Markley, a former corrections officer from Florence. She and Amy Wells, of Mesa, headed out on foot, planning to “think like criminals.”

Some 50 officers from Gilbert and Chandler police departments, the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office, the Department of Public Safety and the Arizona Game and Fish Department joined 100 trained volunteers from Sheriff Joe Arpaios posse to begin a highly coordinated search for Hartman at 6:30 a.m. Saturday.

UPDATE VI: No searches planned today for missing Gilbert woman

Dean Arthur Schwartzmiller, Serial Child Rapist, Gets Life in Prison

File this one under it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person. Dean Arthur Schwartzmiller was sentenced to 150 years in prison for the rape and molestation of two 12 year old boys.

Dean Arthur Schwartzmiller, 64, who also had been convicted of sexual assaults in several states over three decades, was sentenced to the maximum term on 11 felony counts of child molestation and one misdemeanor charge of child pornography possession.

Schwartzmiller represented himself during his trial last year but asked for an attorney to represent him during the sentencing phase. (AP)

It has been reported that Schwartzmiller was one of the most prolific serial rapist who may have been responsible for numerous and untold scores of child rapes.

When Schwartzmiller was arrested in June 2005, investigators found a memoir describing abuse, binders full of child pornography and 1,500 notebook pages with headings including “blond boys,” “no, but yes boys,” and “best of the best, 13 and under.”

Get a load of what this child molester and his attorney tried to pass off as a defense … “Our society doesn’t accept a man who loves boys”. Gee, no kidding!!! Earth to defense attorney, its also against the law, but I guess that is a technicality for a lawyer who represents the scum of the earth.

Schwartzmiller, who acted as his own attorney during his October trial, told jurors that he was innocent and maligned by a society that doesn’t accept men who love boys.

During his testimony, Schwartzmiller said the memoir and notebook entries were fiction.

Schwartzmiller sentenced to 150 years for child molestation

Schwartzmiller, who had at least three molestation convictions and a dozen arrests over three decades, abused many as 100 boys in eight U.S. states, Mexico and Brazil from 1969 to 2005, prosecutors said.

Although police say Schwartzmiller appears to have spent much of the past three decades years in California, he has also been arrested on child molestation charges in New York, Idaho, Oregon, Arkansas and Washington. He has lived in Nevada, Texas and Washington.

In 1984, the Idaho Supreme Court upheld a 1978 conviction for molesting two 14-year-old boys and characterized Schwartzmiller as a “repeat offender” who “uses his intelligence to take advantage of the weak and oppressed and those who are in need.”

Schwartzmiller “frequents areas where young boys may be found, befriends boys with no father figure in the home, entices them from their homes, lowers their natural inhibitions through the use of drugs and alcohol, and commits sex acts upon them,” the justices wrote.

At the time of his arrest in 2005, he was wanted in Oregon on felony sexual assault charges involving a minor. After serving prison time in Idaho for child molestation in the late 1970s, he lived in Brazil, and was extradited from there to Idaho again in the late 1980s. (Pine Bluff Commercial)
