    As a Houstonian in a former life (who drove from The Woodlands to Katy to Pearland and all in-between for work), these cases really get to me. Thanks so much for setting up the new forum, Kimster!

    To get us started, I'm going to open threads for the decades from 1970 through the present. Thanks to Ikoihilm JeannieC, and Claudcici, many of the cases are already posted in the original thread, I'll copy them to the respective chronological threads and add in any that are missing. We can add threads later for geographical areas, i.e., counties, particular victims, suspects/perpetrators, and other particular areas of focus.

    I started a new thread for the Montgomery County cases since that was the focus of the latests discussion in the original thread. I've copied most of the posts over to the new one, and I'll check later to copy any that I missed.

    I am so glad to see this thread being started. Living in the Houston area pretty much my entire life I have always followed all the happenings in the area. I remember when I was younger how stupid we all were when we would go to Galveston for the weekend and living like we had nothing to be afraid of because we never thought anyone would ever capture one of us and kill us and leave us in the field. We were just stupid kids but very lucky.

    Those cases listed for the decades.
    Are those for links only and no discussion?
    Or can we leave comments.

    We've got a few things to decide and I'd like to see what you guys think.

    We're working closely with the UID members now. Very kewl! But, we want to make sure everyone is on the same page as much as possible.

    I was thinking about making a subforum for each case as a member starts trying to match the UIDs, but then we'll have the UID forum AND the subforum here. I'm thinking it would be easier to move them to the UID forum, which was actually an idea brought to me first by Carl.

    So, should we make a sticky thread that lists each UID that we move to the UID forum with a link to their thread? Would that work?

    Or does someone have a better idea?

    I like Carl's idea of moving them to the UID Forum and your's of having a sticky thread. Less confusing, easier to find Carl and the group, neater, all in one place. jmo

    Can a mod go in on the Killing Field UID thread and give a little explanation of what to do if you think you have a match? Maybe edit the first post so folks don't get confused? I should have asked someone to do that before opening the thread. Less confusion.

    We'd like to keep The Killing Field UID Thread as information only and no discussion. As victims are ID'd we can add that information to the Information UID thread.

    Thanks to all the Mods for your hard work and helping us to get this going. Thanks, Carl for jumping in to help us out on these ID's. We appreciate everything you guys do for us!

    Having a link would be OK.
    that way we would not have to open a new tab or window to view it.
    and we only have to hit the back button to return to the main thread.

    Jeannie, I agree with you and I haven't overlooked your request to edit that opening post. I'll do it once we've made a decision on how to handle the UID's.
