    I'm a retired long haul driver and in my 20 plus years over the road I never, ever heard any open discussions of kidnapping, murder, or like subjects ever. So please be careful out there but dont take for granted that because a few truck drivers are really bad people that they all are! Some are really good people, who love their families and wouldnt hurt another person for the world.It's like the song say's "one bad apple dont spoil the whole bunch".

    I watch a lot of Investigation Discovery & other true crime shows & I saw this story & his capture on one of those shows. Freaky man!

    This may already be common knowledge to those up to speed with this creep, but I find this interesting especially after watching the Killing Season and the mention of LISK contacting family of victims post murder.

    In the attachment below it states " Stalked victims? No, Contacted families after killing victims". How common is it for serial killers to make contact the victims friends/relatives??

    Ya know Zodiac and B.T.K. did that. I think it is a sign of a real pompous self-centered, self indulgent, holier than thou attitude a certain killer has to do this. It's a special kind of nuts. He kills because he can do whatever he wants, when he wants, why he wants, and how he wants. He is domineering and wants the world to know it. He doesn't have mommy issues. He has the tough guy syndrome. He hates women and can do anything he wants to with them or to them cause it makes him feel like a tough guy. He is a bully to women. His everyday persona is probably one of those guys who walks around with his chest puffed out to look bigger or fitter than he is. He is a "real swell guy" other guys probably think about him, and inside he thinks"Everyone must bow down to me" Calling the family has them at his mercy. I don't think it happens that often it's a special kind of nuts as I said before. L.I.S.K appears to be just that

    OF COURSE THATS MY OPINION.

    Do you think she fits his MO tho? She was seen approx 6-8 hrs before her body was found right there in town. I thought this guy kept them with him for awhile and dumped them on the side of the road. I could be wrong.

    I've been doing a ton of reading lately on Sk's and the experts are learning that they change MO more than previously thought. I honestly think the keeping them and torturing them was a later development for him. I believe he evolved into doing it that way. JMO

    Re-reading a link from the top of the Walker County Jane Doe thread - goes to Porchlight International. I would link but it says "not secure" so don't know what might happen and I'm scared it will mess something up on here - anyway...
    Is it not incredibly creepy that the truck driver that found WCJD was named James RHOADES????

    I need to refresh my mind on WCJD... it's been a couple of years since I read her thread. Yes, it is interesting that a trucker by the name of Rhoades found her body. Things that make you go hmmm.

    I've met an old guy at our shop who was a long haul driver as well. He brought his youngest son's truck for backrack headache rack and new brake kit installation. He mentioned he was 30+ years in the service and was questioned many times about the cases that truck drivers were involved. He also witnessed a lot of road accidents and he was able to help some of them. I agree there are still so many good long haul truck drivers out there.

    Wonder if any other couples are missing from TX in the early 90s.
