More often than not, if a stranger is involved, the case will then, either grow cold for years or decades until an unsuspected tip comes in, or the case is solved due to forensics. The families will continue their searches & investigation til solved..
If ya really want to help 'justwannahelp, the victims & families of the silent missing epidemic, just jump in, you'll be accepted with open arms.
2013 The 9th Annual National Missing Persons Conference "A Pathway to Resolution", save the date March 21st thru the 24th....see you there.
I have looked at white truck pics for weeks now. I have seen thousands. However, the only white Chevy-type truck I have seen with a chrome gas cover has been in the parking lot at Burnt. Is anyone familiar with this truck?
For lack of being able to open only one window or my google chrome will crash....do I post the link w/ all this local hearsay or leave it alone?! I'll edit if I need to add it...Thanx
Jaren Lockhart, Erika Sharpton, Tara Hawkins, Karen Swift (locals seem to have a POI, so I'm counting her out) and an unidentified Oregon girl's body are the 4 bodies they have to work with. if any of these bodies have the same DNA on them then we know there is a serial killer.
that is the only theory i can think of at the moment, but i don't really believe in it. if i was LE, I would look into it
The following link shows a pic of a truck posted on KATC of a vehicle someone spotted on the side of the road. The truck appears to be an older model but the decal on the rear window looks like the logo on the VOI and it has what appears to be a large decal on the rear side passenger window.
Does anyone know what his symbol is on the back window?
'justwannahelp, FBI BAU2 VICAP knows or has a good idea of the number of serial killer investigations which are ongoing across the US.
The FBI, for the most part is very secretive & will not release this info to the American public. Even after an arrest & conviction of the most prolific serial killers, it may be years or decades before the truth is revealed to the public due to the magnitude of their trail of terror; victim totals..
This article is in regards to Lousiana and the fleur de lis symbol in general. It's kind of a claim to fame (the saints of course, have a lot to do w/ this) for the symbol and it sounds like LA boasts it everywhere. I originally looked this up b/c I have never seen this symbol (w/ the fish and such) before and there are A LOT of hunters, fishers, etc in my area now and where I lived at in KY. Just found it interesting

Brought over from last Thread:
It is estimated that there is between 50 & 100 active serial killers in the US at any given time.
Due to many factors; drugs/meth epidemic, illegal immigration, gang violence, etc. Imo, these FBI estimates are very conservative, as shown by the number of serial killers truckers identified since the FBI Trucker Serial Killer Iniative was established in 2009. There is 100,000+ missing persons in the US. It would be logical to conclude that many of these victims were stranger sexual predator abductions, imo..

New Initiative on an Emerging Trend
In 2004, an analyst from the Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation detected a crime pattern: the bodies of murdered women were being dumped along the Interstate 40 corridor in Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
II. Definition of Serial Murder 09/2005
In the past thirty years, multiple definitions of serial murder have been used by law enforcement, clinicians, academia, and researchers. While these definitions do share several common themes, they differ on specific requirements, such as the number of murders involved, the types of motivation, and the temporal aspects of the murders. To address these discrepancies, attendees at the Serial Murder Symposium examined the variations in order to develop a single definition for serial murder.
Previous definitions of serial murder specified a certain number of murders, varying from two to ten victims. This quantitative requirement distinguished a serial murder from other categories of murder (i.e. single, double, or triple murder).
The different discussion groups at the Symposium agreed on a number of similar factors to be included in a definition. These included:
• one or more offenders
• two or more murdered victims
• incidents should be occurring in separate events, at different times
• the time period between murders separates serial murder from mass murder
In combining the various ideas put forth at the Symposium, the following definition was crafted:
* Serial Murder: The unlawful killing of two or more victims by the same offender(s), in separate events.

In the far left side of this pic there is a white Chevy z71 that has a box/tool of some sort on the passenger side wheel well. The only one I have come across so far. Cannot make out anything else as it is a partial pic.
Do any of you guys think LE has a suspect/suspects in this case? If so, young, old, one or two.
Wow. Its been a while since I was actually on here. Hello everyone!
QUOTE FROM ARTICLE ABOVE
"The one noticeable similarity with almost all serial killer victims is their short height and low weight. Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue should be the serial killer theme song. These small lightweight victims are easy to attack, easy to beat up, easy to carry or drag, easy to put in the trunk of a car, and easy to dispose of. Big victims are far too much work."
This struck a chord because I'm 5 foot 2. And from memory most of the missing blonde girls we've discussed on here. Victims of circumstance or targeted? MOO

This seems like one of these situations where even more patience than usual is going to have to be required. The emotional initial push to find Mickey has made the silence even more deafening, by comparison.
