American homicide; he used his computer bulletin board to lure and kidnap young boys for the purpose of sexual attack. A 23-year-old student at the Middlesex Community College with near-perfect grades, Rex lived at home with his parents. He was apprehended when he asked two separate contacts, youngsters, to abduct a blond boy between the ages of six and nine and bring him to the family cabin in New Hampshire where he said he would kill the boy and eat him.
He pleaded innocent and was held in jail on investigation. While in prison, Rex told his cellmate that he had a 12-year-old boy buried in his back yard and the cellmate was an informant.
When the body was found in April 1994, he was charged with murder and with the rape of two boys, 12 and 14, whom he had met through the computer bulletin board.
