    Terryl J. Stanford, 29, found dead Aug. 24, 1994, near Beloit

    Stanford was found near Naughty But Nice, an adult novelty store on Shopiere Road along Interstate 90/39 east of Beloit.

    An employee of the store found her body near a popular overnight rest stop for truckers.

    Stanford was found barefoot in what appeared to be a purple shirt and dark slacks. It was unknown how long the body had been there.

    She was later identified through fingerprints as a Chicago woman with arrests for prostitution and criminal trespassing at truck stops. She had four kids.

    Investigators believed Stanford was killed somewhere else and disposed of outside Beloit. Suffocation was the suspected cause of death.

    The case went cold until April 1995 when a trucker was arrested in North Carolina on suspicion of killing three prostitutes and dumping their bodies along Interstates in Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee.

    The trucker, Sean Patrick Goble, then 28, of Asheboro, N.C., was wanted for questioning in the murders of dozens of women found along Interstates.

    The women also died of smothering or strangulation.

    It was later learned Goble was not in Wisconsin at the time of Stanfordís murder, Christiansen said.

    A detective assigned to Stanfordís case has submitted the evidence to the FBI, which reviews whether the murder is related to other trucker homicides across the country, Christiansen said.

    The detective has received new information in the case and intends to conduct more interviews, he said.
    Physical evidence also could be resubmitted to the crime lab, Christiansen said.

    Beloit Daily News - Saturday, March 22, 1997

    [...]
    In August 1994, the body of a Chicago woman was discovered in the same location. She was wearing no shoes, no jewelry and carried no identification.

    Deputies later identified the remains as Terryl J. Stanford, of the Chicago area. Stanford had a record for prostitution-related offenses.
    Although the case remains open, deputies believe Stanford's body was dumped near the bookstore by someone traveling through the area.

    The sheriff declined to speculate on why both bodies were apparently dumped outside the adult novelty store, which is a popular overnight parking spot for truckers.

    “There's a lot of traffic that stops at that place from all over the country,” Erickson said.

    (The other woman was Crystal Soulier who died in 1997. Both were found without shoes.)
