    So many women for the area. Thanks to all websleuthers who are looking at this case.

    This is a baffling mystery, and it's hard to believe there aren't more clues or witnesses around in such a small place. Thanks for all the helpful background posts - I will definitely be back to follow this case.

    The killer seems to be active in Apr/May and Nov/Dec. Are there any annual events such as carnivals, festivals (music, art, etc.) car shows, sporting events that occur in the area during these times of the year? The killer could be someone who follows a 'circuit' like a carnival worker, food truck operator, artisan since the disappearance dates seem to follow a pattern. Someone who travels and needs to aquire drugs, whether for personal use or to lure vulnerable women with drug addictions, would have a connection in every town, IMO. LE needs to up their night patrol in the areas where these women went missing.
    If his next victim is not until NOv/Dec I will be really creeped out!

    You're spot-on. I'm going to check into any events that occurred during those times. Seems to be every 6 months.

    Wild theory --

    What if Shasta completed suicide because she knew something about the other killings / missing women and could not live with herself? What if her bf was involved and she felt that was her only way out?

    Wild theory --- speculation --- MOO
    My opinion only. Disclaimer: results may vary. For best results, use as directed. Wash, rinse and repeat. No animals were harmed in the forming of this opinion.

    That would be awesome! Thanks CD82! Right now, my gut is telling me this killer may be in the 'periphery' of these women's lives somehow. Possibly through dealers/pimps. JMO

    Nichole Alloway, reported missing near Portsmouth 6/10/13. Found later that month in an abandoned house. A man was arrested in relation to her death; I cannot find any updates on this.
    Still looking. Says she overdosed and Howard dumped her body.

    Autopsy showed no drugs in her system, Howard was lying. Still seeing if he's in jail or not.

    AFAIK Shasta's boyfriend was in jail when the last 2 went missing. Still is but he could still be connected in some way.

    I'm just sharing this unrelated article as another theory. It illustrates how far these drug dealers travel. Someone running drugs to small towns in different states, could leave many victims in multiple locations.

    http://fox59.com/2015/06/22/four-arr...thern-indiana/

    The on-going investigation has revealed that Elkins had traveled to Scott County numerous times over the last eight months to distribute methamphetamine in multi-ounce to kilogram quantities. The investigation also revealed that Elkins obtained Opana pills in Alabama and was distributing them in Scott County due to the high demand and huge profit margins where Opana is being sold for as much as $160 per pill.

    Based on additional information, a search was conducted of Elkins’ residence in Georgia, which resulted in the seizure of additional methamphetamine and $10,500. Further investigation led investigators to a source of supply in Bremen, Georgia, who coordinated multiple shipments of methamphetamine and agreed to provide Elkins with Opana pills on a monthly basis for distribution in Scott County, Indiana.

    I've been wondering the same thing, BeginnersLuck. It took a while to connect the missing women from Chillicothe. I wonder if this killer has left more victims in other areas.

    Rt. 23 has been known as a major drug pipeline from Michigan and Columbus to southern Ohio and West Virginia for years. The Ohio State Highway Patrol has made many, many drug busts on Rt. 23.

    I've been doing some poking around on the Rt. 23 connection, myself. I think the possibility that there may be victims in other highly-trafficked mid-US heroine cities is very real. I also agree with looking into KY missing women. Some of the OH girls have friends in KY.

    Authorities have ruled Sayre’s death a homicide. The grisly discovery helped launch the task force, which now includes more than a dozen members, including the FBI analysts, according to Preston. The task force is investigating the cases of all six women, even those formerly considered suicides. According to media reports, the investigation could also expand to at least three other women who went missing from nearby Portsmouth and Columbus.
