    Can we spot timing patterns with IK?

    This may seem a little out there -- and I hope it's OK to start a thread for it:

    I've been thinking. We now have two known (Samantha Koenig and the Curriers) and one very likely (Debra Feldman) dates when IK committed abduction/murder. Maybe more will come to light soon.

    I thought it would be interesting to look at the timing and see if we can discern any seasonal/day-of-the-week/weather or whatever patterns.

    Starting us out (chronologically listed):

    Debra Feldman - Thursday, April 9, 2009. Season is spring. Three days before Easter. Moon phase: Full moon.

    Bill and Lorraine Currier - Wednesday/Thursday, June 8/9, 2011. Season is spring. Close in time to no major holiday. Moon phase: First quarter moon (on the 8th).

    Samantha Koenig - Wednesday, February 1, 2012. Season is winter. Close in time to no major holiday. Moon phase: One or two days past first quarter moon (on Jan. 30/31, not sure which)

    If anybody can add factors (or make corrections), jump right on in!

    It's a small sample, so I know it would be premature to make any assumptions about patterning, but just noting on all three of these:

    First half of the year; early in the month; mid-week.

    A couple of other patterns:

    -- bad weather. both the Koenig and Currier abductions took place on extremely stormy nights.

    so... was April 9th 2009 (Feldman) a stormy night???

    -- family. crime sprees are immediately subsequent to or prior to visits with family of origin. now, this could be purely because a family visit was good cover for a "trip" in terms of his normal life.

    I thought I remembered something about stormy weather -- thanks, cynar.

    Making a brief check of Hackensack, NJ, weather records for April 8/9, 2009, though, it doesn't look like it was very stormy there, then. Maybe a little windy, at times.

    ...but you know what? I've been going by her last being seen at her home on April 8 and the FBI saying a victim was abducted on April 9.

    But now I've found this (bbm):

    ...How Keyes came in contact with Feldman is unknown. Feldman was last seen at her Park Street home in Hackensack in early April 2009. An unidentified relative filed a missing persons report on April 8, said Michael Mordaga, the city’s police director....

    So -- maybe I should check backwards a few days in those weather records when I get a chance. And maybe even -- if this source is correct in saying the missing persons report was FILED on April 8 (and who can tell) -- she was not in the Hackensack area when abducted after all...?
