    Serial killings study prompts police to launch investigations

    http://www.heraldnet.com/article/201...WS02/709209868

    Published: Sunday, November 21, 2010
    By Thomas Hargrove, Scripps Howard News Service

    Authorities in Indiana and Ohio have launched investigations into suspected serial killings after a Scripps Howard News Service study of FBI computer files found many alarming clusters of unsolved homicides of women across the nation.

    Also, police in Nevada confirm for the first time that they are hunting a likely serial killer who has targeted up to seven women, mostly prostitutes, and has scattered their partial remains across three states.

    Many of the suspected serial killings detected in the study have never before been disclosed to the public.

    So many unsolved murders; it is unbelievable. Phoenix alone has nearly 2000 in past 20 years? Can that be right? Wow, that is 100 a year.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    I think a lot of us would be stunned if we actually sat and pondered some of the statistics on unsolved murders in a lot of more metropolitan areas.
