Police say Blainey was found driving Turner TMs Toyota convertible in Montoursville, Pennsylvania earlier this week. Investigators say there TMs a strong possibility he will be charged in her death. Police still have not said how she was killed.

Blainey was convicted of attempted rape in 1984 for forcing himself on an eight-year-old girl. Four years later, while on parole, he was again arrested and convicted of raping two women in Madison County. He was released from prison in 2009. Authorities say Blainey went missing after failing to report to his parole officer.
