    IL - Eight slain in IL/MO crime spree, Nicholas Sheley charged, June 2008

    http://www.kait8.com/global/story.asp?s=8584610

    I haven't heard about anyone recently missing from Arkansas and didn't see anything here at Websleuths.

    It seems they are alluding to a serial killer?

    It looks like they have a person of interest in the deaths of this couple and a few others in MO.

    I am from Festus and this story is so horrible. I feel for that couple. This monster NEEDS to be caught. All these rumors are flying around town and this is a huge story. I'm glad to see it on here.

    It was so weird today. I passed the gas station on my way to work as I always do and the gas station was packed with cars. Normally I get gas there because it is never busy. There were only 2 people getting gas when I passed by today, but the rest of the parking spots were filled. I'm sure people were inside trying to get information. Also, I found it weird that the dumpster did not appear to be roped off or anything. There was a van parked near it so maybe they tried to have it blocked off.

    I just got this email at work

    "

    http://www.cnn.com/2008/CRIME/07/01/....ap/index.html
    and www.ksdk.com



    What KSDK confirmed was that a gentleman at the ballgame last night reported a strange man requesting to borrow his cell phone. He let the man borrow the phone, and he was on it for about 20 minutes. The witness claimed the borrower was acting shady so he called the authorities. When shown a photo of Sheley, he said that was the guy… It is STRONGLY believed by the newscrew that this guy was in front of the stadium last night. A vehicle matching the description of the one taken from
    Festus, was found last night on Cherokee street (address withheld at this time). blood was found in the vehicle matching that of the victims.

    PLEASE! PLEASE!!! Be careful when going anywhere over the next few days, or weeks until this guy is captured.


    To all officers:

    There is possibly a serial killer in our area. He has killed 8 people in the last few days, two of those being a couple in Festus that the Major Case Squad is currently investigating. We do not know what he is driving at this time, however, he was spotted at Busch Stadium during a ball game last night and a truck he had stolen during the Festus murders was recovered in St. Louis City as well. Further information will be forthcoming in an Intelligence Bulletin. He has bludgeoned all of his victims so far, HOWEVER, he may now be armed with a 9mm pistol that he took from the couple in Festus. He may be back in route to the Chicago area, but that is unknown at this time. He has stated to his ex-wife that he has more killing to do. He is a meth addict and extremely dangerous. Use extreme caution if encountered.

    Captain of the major case squad is doing a live news briefing right now. Apparently there was a huge piece of evidence found in the dumpster but they won't say what. He says the crime was extremely brutal and Sheley is considered very dangerous. Crime was random. There have been a significant amount of leads that he has been spotted in St Louis.

    ROCK FALLS, Ill. Police issued a murder warrant in one of eight Midwest killings that may be connected to the same person of interest who is the focus of a massive manhunt.
    Authorities said Tuesday that an intense search is under way for 28-year-old Nicholas Troy Sheley.
    They've obtained a warrant for his arrest on charges of first-degree murder, aggravated battery and vehicular hijacking in the death of Ronald Randall, who was beaten to death and left behind a Galesburg, Ill., grocery store Monday.
    Authorities said Tuesday that there was "evidence at each of these scenes" linking Sheley to the crimes.

    snipped...
    Public records show he has a lengthy criminal record, including multiple convictions for robbery, drug and weapons charges.
    Sheley is described as a white male, 28 years of age, 511, approximately 165 pounds, with green eyes and brown hair. He has tattoos on his arms, chest, and shoulders. He has a criminal history of armed violence and resisting arrest.

    Joe Sheley says his nephew is the father of four children and that he's had dustups with the law before, including for home invasion.
    Joe Sheley says his nephew has a drug problem, but he says killing would be completely out of character for him. The uncle says Nicholas Sheley has a temper but doesn't go looking for a fight or trouble.

    I live here in Rockfalls. Everyone is scared he is suspected of killing 8 people now. The police have recieved a million tips here. I was one of those tips. They have no idea where he is. He killed a 93 yr old man and stuffed him in his trunk. He also killed 3 other adults and a 2 year old. Suspected of killing a man in geneseo, and the two in Missouri.

    He has been put on AMW front page on their website, and FBI are thinking of adding him to the top 10 most wanted which will list him up there with Osama.

    The surrounding area isn't even letting there kids play outside anymore. It is really scary!

    Knox County filed for the death penalty for Sheley.

    My prayers and thoughts are with the victims families.

    Not to bring too much attention to the murderer as the focus should be on the victims and their families this guy's wife has a Myspace and it is not private. Among her wedding pictures this lady has this guy's mughsots up. She has a R.I.P section for him. Thankfully I don't have to understand why a person would do that. I mean you can take your kids to visit this guy in prison. You can write a letter he will answer. These poor victim's didn't get that chance. Their families will never again get to speak to their loved ones.

    Sorry for the rant, but that just sets me off. I am not judging the woman as that is a huge part of her Myspace. I just can't fathom how you'd post a murderer's mugshots when it's your husband that murdered innocent people.
