    ..this is missing Dennis Vern Kunkel

    According to Medina County Common Pleas Court records, Kunkel was served with a foreclosure notice for his home May 9.
    Thomas said Kunkel's business had been slow and he had even cashed in a gold investment for about $11,000 not long before he disappeared.
    Brother Alan Kunkel, who owns a construction company, has a ''missing'' poster with his brother's picture on his Web site.

    Anyone with information about the disappearance, is asked to call Medina police at 330-725-7777.

    Alan Kunkel said he hopes his brother is all right and will pick up the phone and call his parents or one of his five brothers.
    ''No news is good news,'' his mother said. ''They haven't found a body.

    Margo Lynn Horn/Margo Lynn Jordan - Little Rock, Arkansas

    Introducing this case requires a little background -- please bear with me!

    In another thread, WS member Iwatchingeye posted a link and noted that the article there stated that IK had been ruled out in two 2010 New Jersey cases because he was in Arkansas on the pertinent dates (bbm):

    Keyes admitted burglarizing 20 to 30 homes throughout the United States and talked about committing arson to cover up a homicide. The FBI has ruled him out in the unsolved murders of Dolores Alliotts of Palisades Park on April 28, 2010, and Joan Davis of Teaneck on Aug. 17, 2010, both of whose homes were set ablaze after they were stabbed to death. Keyes was in Arkansas at the time of those killings, Woodruff said.
    http://www.northjersey.com/hackensac...tml?c=y&page=2

    Iwatchingeye wondered (and I did, too) whether "Arkansas" could have been written in error when actually Alaska was meant -- and later I realized that, if an error was made, the real location could be Arizona, also.

    Since the abbreviations for those three states can easily be confused, I thought that a reporter, working from an abbreviation, may have made a mistake -- I don't believe we have seen or heard elsewhere (MSM, timelines, etc.) that IK has been pinpointed in Arkansas.

    Studying the timelines, I don't think Alaska is at all likely, in particular for the April 28, 2010 date.

    If you look at the timeline at the beginning of this "Midwest" thread, it also seems that Arkansas might not be right, though, since there is no April 2010 time period given for the Midwest.

    On the timeline at the beginning of the West thread, however, we find (excerpted and bbm):

    January 11, 2010 to February 25, 2010
    March 1, 2010 to March 10, 2010
    April 24, 2010 to April 30, 2010
    May 19, 2010 to July 18, 2010
    July 9-12, 2010: Sacramento, California and traveled to Auburn, California
    June 15, 2011, Keyes flew from Chicago to San Francisco
    September 2011: Wyoming
    Since that is from the "West" thread, I actually am leaning now toward ARIZONA being the most likely actual location, among the three states we pondered. Given the fluidity of the timelines as they have been released over time from the FBI, however, I feel it is possible that Arkansas may actually be correct -- and since I found an Arkansas case that dovetails so neatly with the April dates on the timeline and with the date of the NJ case ruled out, I felt it wisest to go ahead and post it. (Y'all let me know what you think...)

    Margo Lynn Horn (Margo Lynn Jordan) went missing from Little Rock, Arkansas on April 24, 2010. Her skeletal remains were found in woods on February 18, 2011 in Pulaski Co., Arkansas (a rural portion of the Little Rock area, I think).

    She has a thread on WS:

    [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=106780"]Found Deceased AR - Margo Lynne Horn/Jordan - 28 years old - Little Rock - 24 April 2010 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community[/ame]




    ... and there was also a thread for the remains:

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...t=margo+jordan



    The WS thread for Margo sort of trails off ... no real resolution. I also have not been able to find any resolution reported elsewhere. There are reports of a boyfriend and also another man being POIs, but I can't find that leading anywhere. There is also something about a guy related somehow to the case being shot by LE ... all a little unclear to me at this point.

    Truth is, I cannot find where Margo's cause OR manner of death was ever determined (or, at least, reported). The last articles I find say they are working to determine these things.

    Some links:

    Skeletal remains identified as missing woman

    http://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2...missing-woman/




    Margo Lynn Jordan's death remains a mystery

    ...Pulaski County Sheriff's investigators are looking into all possibilities for a cause of death at this time and are not ruling out homicide, suicide or natural causes. Investigators have been in contact with Jordan's family and boyfriend. They are working all contacts to find out what happened....

    Margo Jordan Update: Remains of missing Little Rock woman found

    Pulaski Co. remains identified as Margo Lynn Jordan

    ...Minden says the 28-year-old hasn't been seen since last April and it was out of the ordinary for her to disappear. After all, she had two children. ...

    ...
    Jordan's boyfriend was developed as a suspect but later cleared....

    ...Minden says, "If it was some place that she had absolutely no ties to it might be a little more suspicious but the fact that you can actually link her to that area probably makes it a little less suspicious."...

    CanManEh, IK frequented Canada. I believe the info is on the FBI site, or early on in the IK discussion thread. There are many, many threads on IK. IK was a stealth predator for years/decades, oblivious to law enforcement. IK was an everywhere, nowhere man...

    I agree that IK broke several of his rules of prey when he abducted Samantha Koenig. The question is why? What was his motivation? I have my theory, as do many others. I feel that it was for notoriety. IK committed suicide on the same day that 'On Frozen Ground' -movie filmed in Anchorage of Robert Hansen; AK serial killer that hunted humans was scheduled for release;

    I've always had this deep sense of wonder on whether or not IK could be responsible for Lauren Spierer. I have pages and pages of hand printed notes plus printouts of every IK timeline that has been posted here and elsewhere. I have a whole notebook and computer file dedicated solely to IK. I'll post a pic of my printout after I just summarize, as at this point I can't get the FBI timeline for keyes to come up anymore.

    JUNE 2, 2011: Alaska Airlines flight (Anchorage, Alaska to Chicago, Illinois)

    JUNE 2, 2011- JUNE 15,2011: Vehicle rental (Hertz)- Desert Plaines, Illinois

    JUNE 3,2011: Multiple Transactions (Indiana toll road)
    JUNE 3, 2011: LAUREN SPIERER goes missing

    JUNE 8, 2011: Bill and Lorraine Currier kidnapped/murdered- Essex, Vermont

    JUNE 9,2011: Hotel Reservation (Handy Suites) Essex, Vermont

    JUNE 15,2011: Continental Airlines flight (Chicago, Illinois to San Francisco, California.)

    JUNE 15-16, 2011: Hotel reservation (Days Inn)- San Francisco, California.

    JUNE 16, 2011: Continental Airlines flight (San Francisco, California to Anchorage, Alaska.)

    I understand it's easy to just blame everything on the serial killer who can't confirm anything. And I understand there are multiple other people who could be viable suspects in Lauren's case. It just REALLY has always stood out to me that IK was in Indiana on the day of Lauren's disappearance. I've been periodically going through all of his known travels looking for a pattern.

    I too have always strongly believed that Israel Keyes was responsible for Lauren Spierers disappearance. It seems more risky than his traditional MO but who knows. BTW I have an excel file of the FBI timeline if you need to confirm any dates.

    it takes only 13 hours to drive from indiana toll road to essex, vermont so he certainly did have the time and opportunity between june 3 and june 8 to abduct and kill.



    there is no desert plaines, illinois. it's des plaines (which is written correctly in the notes but mistyped in the forum). he got the rental car on june 2 and had the time to be in bloomington, indiana (approximately 300 miles away) the next day.



    the distance between bloomington, indiana and indiana toll road is approximately 3 to 4 hours, less than 300 miles.

    My phone must have autocorrected des Plaines into desert plaines. It's probably too late to edit my post now. Thanks for the heads up. :-)

    Also thanks for the maps, they help me get a better understanding of the routes and possibilities. Your contributions are very much appreciated!

    Thanks BD1985 for the generous offer, I love to have any and all files, from any sleuths who are willing to share, to add into my collection. In my mind, the more information we have to work with the better.

    I'm also glad that there are at least a couple of you that share a mutual belief that IK could be responsible for Lauren's disappearance. Thank you guys!

    i haven't learned much about her yet, i googled her name to get her location and i saw that she was a college student. what time did she disappear and where from? i don't know if you saw my thread about kathleen mcbroom but if he's responsible for her disappearance it means that he abducted her in daylight hours. i think he was very capable of abducting right out in the open and during the day. my other question is, does anybody know what day he arrived in vermont, or what he was doing the day or two before he killed the curriers?
