Police suspect a break-in at a home in Kilbride was fueled by sexual interests.

RNC Const. Talia Murphy speaks with reporters in St. John's.

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary received word Thursday of a break-in that happened the day before. Nobody was home when the break-in occurred and no items were stolen, but police said personal items were “disturbed.”

Speaking with media Thursday afternoon, RNC Const. Talia Murphy declined to confirm what sort of items they were and in what manner they were disturbed. She would only say that the RNC believes the crime was “sexual in nature” and that police want to warn the public about the risk of such crimes occurring.

Asked if the items were disturbed in a sexual fashion, Murphy said, “Not necessarily. We’re saying that the break-and-enter itself is believed to be sexual in nature.”

Murphy was also asked if any bodily fluids commonly associated with the act of sex were found at the scene of the crime. She said that would be a part of the ongoing investigation and that police would not confirm at this time whether such fluids were identified.

    Don't forget, this is how Russell Williams started before escalating his crimes. Disturbing.

    The normal Police Press Release: We had a crime and it was serious and the suspect may or may not be male and it happened somewhere and if you have any information please call crime stoppers. Thank You. Then the local reporters say Gee Golly Thanks and leave - maybe try asking hard questions. Now that would be different.
