Ricky Eugene Dykes. There's been lots of rumors about him being linked to the three missing women because of a connection between the case and the Galloping Goose motorcycle club. His wife, Judy K. Dykes, admitted to her hospice nurse on her death bed that she witnessed her ex-husband and son handle a dead body in her own kitchen once. Dykes has been charged with a number crimes and has served jail time. However, he was in Springfield in summer of 1992, most likely living at a trailer park on W. Chestnut at the time. He also tried forcing ant poison down an ex-wife's throat in California. Judy said she drove the two split window Dodge van. It was titled in California. There have also been a number of Goose biker threats on the local judges in town.
Ricky Dykes owned at one point in time (this can be found on Google Street View at 708 N. Fremont) the same truck used by Glennon Sweet, the man who shot and killed Trooper Ralph Harper off Highway 60 near Rogersville in 1989. Sweet, was also a Goose. Who's another Goose? Steve Garrison and brother Mike. Who employed Ricky Dykes? None other than Gerald Carnahan. On Case.net, it shows he worked at Carnahan's Diversified Plastic in Nixa MO. (Could Dykes have been the driver when Carnahan tried to abduct Starky on Ingram Mill...was she applying to PFI? Randy Little has been linked to the Gooses)
Here is a pic of him from his latest arrest: http://springfieldmugshots.com/mug/ricky-eugene-dykes
There's supposed to be a clubhouse off KK or B highways in Webster county where the bodies could be.
If anyone can get information on property(ies) owned by Sweet in the area and the location, that'd be a big hand in this case. Larry Wallace's Webster County farm may be another place to look because of his connection to the GGMC.
The Judy Dykes confession, IMO, has to be taken real seriously.
