Transcript for Jessica Ridgeway Murder: Definitive Connection to Abduction Attempt
our "gma" legal analyst, dan abrams. You heard brad garrett says the best thing is the links with the cases. The police must have something solid. The language they're using. Definitive link.

In a lot of cases, they'll say, we want to reassure everyone. We believe this is an isolated incident. Here, they're doing just the opposite. We think this is connected to other attempted abductions in the area, which has really concerned this community. You now have older kids taking younger kids to school. Parents dropping their kids off in ways they never did before. They have to have something definitive. They want people to be taking the precautions, as well. But they're still holding back some details. And they're getting flooded. They have to. In high-profile cases you always get a lot of tips. It's the reason a lot of the time you make the cases public because you want the public to help. The downside is you get so many tips, that the hardest job is separating the real tips from the false tips. And so, what they want to do is they want to keep certain information close to the vest, that only the actual perpetrator might know. So that as they pursue this investigation, they know something the public doesn't. And that helps them in sorting out the tips. Let's hope it works out and they get someone soon. Now, to the home alone girl.
