    There's obviously a drug problem in Chillicothe with more than one dealer. What if these girls changed dealers and the old one felt betrayed and acted out in anger?

    Before the Portsmouth Police Chief announced on Thursday that there weren’t any connections between the missing women from Chillicothe and Portsmouth, a Portsmouth newspaper article published last Monday announced that the police chief was going to meet task force investigators at a meeting in Chillicothe later that week.

    And in that same newspaper article, the Portsmouth Police Chief also mentioned the names of two local women from Portsmouth that were missing.


    PPD explores connection to missing woman


    Portsmouth Police Chief Robert Ware says he is going to Chillicothe later this week to attempt to learn if there is an actual connection between a murder case there and a woman missing from Scioto County.

    Ware said there are two women missing locally. He identified them as Megan Lancaster and Karen Shepherd, but said he does not know if either one is tied to the case since he has not been notified what the Ross County authorities are speculating.

    I wasn’t able to find any other details concerning Karen Shepherd being missing from the Portsmouth area.

    I also noticed some interesting comments on a public Facebook page called Finding Megan Lancaster 2013 regarding the police chief’s announcement of there not being any connections between the missing women from Chillicothe and Portsmouth.

    Regarding the Karen Shepherd thing... that has cause A LOT of outrage in the area because "Karen Shepherd" isn't actually a missing person. He was referring to Jennifer Sue Shepherd, but he got her name wrong. Everyone is up in arms over it, because if the police chief is going to discount the idea of any connections between the missing women in Scioto and the missing women in Ross, it would probably help if he actually knew their names...

    It's probably a good time to mention that some locals are very skeptical of LE in Portsmouth. Some think that LE might be complicit or even involved in Megan Lancaster's disappearance, as well as the murders of Nichole Alloway and Amanda Howard, which is one reason why people think that Portsmouth PD might be hesitent to invite the FBI to poke around.

    Which is why I'm glad the Scioto County Sheriff is involved in the task force.

    An article in the Columbus Dispatch announced that the task force investigating the disappearances and deaths of missing women in southern Ohio has created an email account for folks to send email tips.

    Investigators create email tipline in search for missing women

    A task force investigating a string of potentially-linked missing-persons cases and deaths in southern Ohio has added another way for people to submit tips: an email account.

    The Ross County sheriff’s office said today that tipsters can now send information to detectives via a findme@rosssheriff.com email address.

    A hotline of 740-774-FIND(3463) had already been established.

    There also was an editorial in the Columbus Dispatch this morning discussing a different kind of serial killer that is stalking many communities in the state of Ohio.

    Hmm.... I am wondering if the upcoming television documentary is influencing this? I am hopeful.

    I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.

    VERY interesting, since I have thought since Shasta Himelrick's death was ruled a suicide that there's a LE connection. I do not believe she committed suicide. I've been busy training at a new job followed by a nice vacation, so I hadn't seen this thread until today. I'm ready to do some sleuthing! Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far...looks like some great info.

    With three area women missing, safety concerns have reached a new high among women in the community, causing some to review their options for self-protection.

    "I am always looking over my shoulder double-checking everything," Ross County resident Beth Ann Caldwell said. "I will not walk alone, especially at night."

    Caldwell, a mother of four, said she is always counting the heads of her children and is on high alert. She said since the women disappeared and three others were discovered dead, she has given serious consideration to getting a concealed carry license.

    "I had considered getting it before," Caldwell said. "But now I feel it's more of a necessity to make sure my family is protected."

    http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/chi...&pid=175108388

    Above is the link to an obituary for a 21 year old from a city about 20 miles from Chillicothe. Based on what's written in the obituary, it appears she died from an overdose. Beautiful young girl...another life lost to drugs in Ohio. I don't think her death is related to a possible serial killer, but I do think the drug use links the missing and murdered women we know of, and I think highlighting how many are dying from drugs in that area is going to be important here somehow which is why I'm posting the link.
