    Girl Missing On Bus Trip McMINNVILLE, Tenn. Police in three states are searching for a 17- year-old girl who failed to arrive here aboard a bus she boarded Friday in South Bend, Ind. Indiana State Police said Penny Hand, who had about $300 in her wallet when she left South Bend, was to have arrived here shortly after 8 a.m. Saturday to visit her aunt and uncle. THE GIRL'S father, Robert Hand, said yesterday he last saw his daughter at the South Bend bus station. Her route, police said, would have taken her through Indianapolis with a bus change en route. "I don't think she ever got here myself," said Mrs. Paul Watson, the girl's aunt, whose husband owns a McMinnville furniture moving outfit. "We don't have any idea what could have happened to her." Mrs. Watson said her niece was to spend the week at their McMinnville home and then go on to Texas to visit other relatives. The girl was described as about five feet, six inches tall with brown hair and eyes and a dark

    I don't think a random killer would choose a full term pregnant woman as his victim. This seems like a personal killing. They went to great lengths to hide her identity. My thoughts it was planned out. From the location to dismembering. Father of child not wanting to be a dad or family member who was against the pregnancy maybe due to religious beliefs...

    Writing on the hand....wsr and a series of numbers...wonder if she was distracted or interrupted and not able to finish writing...maybe it was going to be a phone numb or address? If she was not from PA, but a surrounding state..example..NY, DE...the writing meant something..read it was done in close proximity to death.

    Why would you think a random killer wouldn't chose a full term pregnany woman as his victim?

    Although an angry lover cannot be ruled out certainly, most domestic murders don't end up with chopped on limbs.

    It could be a torso murderer. He is an excerpt of an article on torso killers...

    The third most common category is usually referred to as an ‘offensive’ mutilation where the dismemberment is in fact the real purpose of the murder all along, and these include lust and necro-sadistic murders. Those driven by primarily sexual motives mutilate the corpse in characteristic ways, Konopka, Kunz and colleagues report, for example severing genital organs or breasts. Some perpetrators pull out abdominal organs through the disfigured genital tract. Death by strangling is apparently very common in this kind of homicide.

    I think it is an address, its the most obvious answer. Addresses and phone numbers are the most common thing written on hands before the common ownership of cell phones anyway. WSR are the initials of the road, numbers are the exact building.

    WSR could be West S______ Road for example.

    I have searched and searched and I cannot find a single thing about what happened to Sherry Roberts. The only other mention I can find in newspaper of her is in her brother's obituary where she is listed as preceding him in death. I have spent almost a month trying to figure out if she never came back and she wasn't found and assumed dead, looking for MP articles on her, anything... I know this is a rabbit hole and not Sherry's thread but I hate loose ends.

    I think back to Lacy Peterson ...9 months pregnant...killed by her husband Scott. He also dismembered her.

    Does the bedspread and suitcases still exist? Could they do any testing on those items now not available in the 70s?

    Her breast, nose, and ears removed. I would think these are characteristic features that are identifiable....person who did this went to great lengths...from dismembering to three different suitcases that were painted and handles removed. Seems planned, not random.
