    KS - Shannon Olson, 15, Wichita, 31 October 1987

    This one has always bothered me. I grew up in Wichita and I remember this happening. To my knowledge there's never been any progress in the investigation.

    Strange that someone could become mixed up in a new group of people to the extent that they would start failing in school but, apparently, no one in their family or previous circle of friends knew who they were.

    That's strange for sure, but to me it's always been about the phone call.

    Detectives say they believe the group was involved in some sort of religious cult.
    I'd forgotten this angle. May never have known it, actually. Don't recall reading it at the time.

    I think the cult angle was ruled out pretty early in the investigation. That doesn't mean it shouldn't be considered though.

    Anyone ever publish where the call came from?

    Do we trust dennis rader when he tells us he's only killed 10? reading Wikipedia's write up about him it seems the detectives are taking him for his word. Without knowing what evidence they have in ms Olsen's case is hard to tell but if I'm looking at the maps right of where it says she was found it was about three miles due south of where he lived. the way the article says she was found reminded me of some of his work, but surely they've crossed those T's and dotted the i's.

    I've been able to get a tiny bit of information from a policeman who was on the force at that time, and he said there was no evidence of strangulation, so rader was ruled out, but you never know.
