    May 17, 2011

    MILWAUKEE Larry DeWayne Hall, a convicted kidnapper long suspected in dozens of disappearances, now claims that he abducted 39 women and killed some of his victims before he went to prison in 1994, including Laurie Depies of Appleton.
    ..

    Hall claimed that he'd met Depies at the mall and asked her out for pizza, but she told him she didn't have time because she was going to a friend's house. Hall said he followed her in his van, and as she parked, he stopped in the street. He called to her and offered to show her a photo album of antique cars. She recognized him and came over, he claimed.

    CNN LIVE EVENT/SPECIAL

    To Catch a Serial Killer
    Aired July 4, 2011 - 22:00 ET
    THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.


    BROOKE BALDWIN, CNN ANCHOR (voice-over): Here in the Midwest, several young girls went missing. Some were found murdered. Others were never found at all.

    Laurie Depies, 20, in Appleton, Wisconsin; Rayna Rison, 16, from La Porte, Indiana; Wendy Felton, 16 from Marion, Indiana; Michelle Dewey, 20, in Indianapolis, Indiana, all of these cases went unsolved. Officials believed only one man knew what happened.

    [...]

    GARY HALL, BROTHER OF LARRY HALL: Larry, just like Jimmy Keene calls him, and he is. He's a baby killer.

    REPORTER (on camera): You think your brother is a baby killer.

    HALL: I don't have no doubt in my mind.

    REPORTER: Do you think your brother killed more than Jessica Roach?

    HALL: Yes.

    REPORTER: Do you think your brother killed Tricia Reitler?

    HALL: Yes.

    REPORTER: Rayna Rison?

    Michelle Dewey?

    HALL: Yes.

    REPORTER (voice-over): As Gary started talking more openly, detectives approached him, asking for help.

    HALL: I went with the Indianapolis detectives down to try to get my brother to confess. He made me leave the room. He did, in fact, confess on tape to 15 serial murders.

    REPORTER: Larry later retracted, again. And while he can't ever seem to stick to one story, he does, sometimes, seem to have regrets.

    L. HALL: I didn't want to keep living my life the way I was living it. I wanted things to be different, you know, but I guess I didn't really do the right things and change the way my life was going.

    We need to explore Larry Hall and his sick history more. Only one page of discussion and he has grabbed many many teenage girls. Some older. And I don't think he did it alone.

    Here is a link to a very detailed timeline of Larry DeWayne Hall. He was from Wabash, IN . He was a Civil War re-enactor, known for his unusual and historically accurate sideburns when he portrayed a Civil War soldier. Identified known victims of his have been found near Civil War battlesites/ historical monument types of places. LE suspects he is responsible for as many as 30-54 victims in the Southern and Midwestern states. Most of his victims' remains have not been located yet.

    He cruised college towns all over the Midwest and South looking for victims. Young women tended to disappear from towns in or near where Civil War re-enactments were being held in the 1980's. His youngest supposed victim was 10 years old. Don't get me started on this POS.

    I firmly believe he is responsible for the disappearance of someone who attended the same school I did, and the above link confirmed my suspicion. There is a physical resemblance between the missing women. Larry Dewayne Hall is serving life in prison with no chance of parole after being convicted of specific murders in Illinois. His attempts at appeals failed. Hall has an identical twin brother. In 1991, a friend of the brothers died. The friend owned a dry-cleaning business in Indiana.

    One of the vehicles he was known to drive included a tan van with brown stripes, according to the above link. I created a separate thread for his timeline in the SK forum.
    Where is Shawn Hale? https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/7546/0/ Missing from Apple Valley CA since 11/04/1994

    Where is Michelle Crawford? https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/14428/0/ Missing from Lawton, OK since 06/08/1999

    My aunt, Marcie Fuller Swinford, is on this list. I believe Larry and/or others were responsible for her murder. She was believed to have been taken from a grocery store very near to a college campus and a historic site (Ft. Harrison). I've contacted LE about this possible connection but they don't seem to be interested in solving her case. They haven't been from the beginning. In fact, our family was told that the clothes found with her body were laundered by the state crime lab.

    I can't imagine what your family has been through. I'm sorry for your loss. You are an amazing person for keeping her memory and her case alive.

    From the little I've read on him (thank you for bringing it to our attention), he hung around some campuses, convenience stores, shopping malls, and grocery stores, etc.

    I'm wondering if Hall has been looked at in the Dawn Schnetzer case? (I realize many suspect Avery in her case as well).
    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?226155-WI-Dawn-Schnetzer-17-Menasha-15-September-1978


    She was found dead in 1978 in Calumet County, WI. She was last seen leaving a Hortonville, WI tavern getting a ride to Menasha. The Laurie Jean Depies case, which he has confessed to, also occurred in Menasha, but in 1992. It looks like his earliest suspected case is in 1981 which isn't that far off.

    Also, I have no idea who made this great map of his potential victims but I stumbled upon it and wanted to share it:

    I thought for a moment when reading about Larry DeWayne Hall's traveling for civil war reenactments that he might have had something to do with Jody Huisintruit's abduction, since a reenactment was going on across the river from her apartment. However, then I read that he has been incarcerated since 1994. Jodi was abducted in June of 1995.

    Keep in mind it's been said that perhaps Larry's twin brother GH may have paticipated. In fact Larry was interviewed and said he was tired of covering up for his brother. Gary still lives in Indiana. I've considered this link in the Abby and Libby case. MOO of course

    Thanks for the information. Did the brother travel for civil war reenactments also?

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    Thank you, Tulessa, for posting the video doc. I pray that you are feeling much better these days.

    I found LHs notes disturbing. Chills ran down my spine when the note that read Find One Now was shown. The undercover guy sure was brave to undertake the assignment. Much for his own benefit was he determined. I wish he had not confronted LH so the carvings and map would not have been destroyed.

    I have been working with the assumption that prison officials were aware when LE placed an uncover agent in their system. Apparently, that is an erroneous assumption since they threw him in the hole for confronting LH.
