    Hello, I'm trying to defer your comment, So is this two cases or one. The first one is about the jogger in Tacoma: " A 31-year-old registered sex offender is in jail after allegedly attacking and trying to rape a jogger in a Tacoma park before he was chased away by witnesses." This one is from last month:http://q13fox.com/2017/01/12/police-man-attacked-tried-to-rape-jogger-in-tacoma-park/ Is the next on about Eddie Medrano in Santa Fe who is being charged with raping three different women: https://www.abqjournal.com/738693/sf-man-accused-of-assaulting-3-women.html I just want to make sure I properly reply to your comment, are you trying to inform us of the situation, so we can research and inform others, add it to our list, OR is there another reason? Please let us know, thank you for 1. Reading and 2. Commenting. We look forward to hearing from you.

    This is a great re-cap, I had no idea about the AIDS patient. Is this only for October of might I see something similar every month?
