    This map shows the more than 500 cases in our Highway Serial Killings Initiative database; the red dots mark where bodies or remains have been found along highways over the past 30 years.

    The part of the show when that map appeared and the dots kept spreading spooked me. Thanks for providing it dotr
    The U.S. Court of Appeals later ruled that Whitman wasn’t liable for the EPA’s claims, because she did not intend any harm.

    With as close as some of these are, has anyone looked into some murders (or bodies found) in Canada?

    Is there a list I can refer to for these red dots? I would like to look at each case individually and see if something sticks out to me. Ideas I have in mind are industry close to a dump site, warehouses close to dump sites, old school truck stops...

    I've never seen a complete list which ID's all of the markers. (Highway Serial Killer Initiative thread: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=155462

    We do have separate threads for different regions, though. It might be helpful to check those. I look forward to hearing more from you and others in this thread about your personal experiences.

    While the great majority of truck drivers are “the good guys” we depend on to keep the entire country running, The FBI reports that at least 25 former long haul truckers are convicted serial killers who used America’s interstates as their hunting and dumping grounds. In May 2016 FBI Crime Analyst Christie Palazzolo was quick to point out that long-haul trucking is an honorable profession and that the overwhelming majority of drivers are not murderers—but it does happen, and the pattern is unmistakable. More than a decade ago, analysts for the FBI’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (ViCAP)—the only national database of serial crimes—began to see a marked increase in the number of bodies recovered along the side of the road. A majority of the victims were truck-stop prostitutes, and it turned out that many of the suspects were long-haul truckers. “We had an inordinate number of victims and offenders from this rather specific population pool,” FBI Crime Analyst Christie Palazzolo explained. To make matters worse, these cases are extremely difficult to investigate.

    I shudder seeing the old red rooster lot. That was one scary place! Nasty doesn't begin to start to explain the tales that have come out that stop.

    Post your stories here. There is no reason to not feel comfortable since a thread has been created for just that,

    Truckers and workers alike can just post their experiences.

    Love the info that comes from those in the field!

    I believe this is a safe place to post personal experiences and close calls. While I was never involved in sex work, drug addictions, etc, I had my own close call with a serial killer.

    Without a doubt I was going to be a victim but I fortunately got away from the situation. It was only years later, maybe 20 years later when I was watching a episode of Paula Zahn's On The Case when "my" SK was featured. I never knew the guy's name but I had never forgotten him.

    While the episode was going on it mentioned a club I use to go to that caught my attention. That's where I met him at this club. He bought me a drink and we danced. I wasn't there to pick up men, I was there to dance and just have fun. After a couple of dances, he and I went back to our seats at the bar. He tried to engage me in conversation but I was there to dance.

    I looked across the bar and saw a really nice looking guy, think MacGyer or 80's Don Johnson. I told the guy I was with that I was going to ask the guy across the bar to dance and the man went ballistic on me. He was stomping his feet, talking about the drink he had bought for me, and was just became so angry at me. I walked away and for the rest of the evening I danced with the MacGyer guy.

    Over the years I talked about the guy who became so angry with me for leaving him to dance with another person. It never occurred to me to be afraid of him. But it was while I was watching the show that they showed who this guy was. It was the guy I left at the bar to dance with someone else. He's also since been featured on Dark Minds and is considered a suspect in a unsolved murder back in the 80's. Fortunately he's locked up now and will be for the rest of his life, but it scared me half to death to see him again on these shows.

    His name is Edwin "Ned" Snelgrove. His idol Ted Bundy. He still can't be linked to the woman in Newark, NJ back in the 80's but evidence was found that he had been in the area of her apartment. He was just getting started when he was finally locked up for good. When I met him that night he seemed like a really nice guy, decent, normal, until I wanted to leave his company. It still scares me how close I was to becoming one of his victims....
