    Austria, three missing women in the mountains

    Ok, these three cases make me suspect of a SK. I might be wrong, and I don't speak enough German to dig into Austrian MSM


    But these three women went missing in a 300km area. However, keep in mind that Austria is a small country if we compare to the US or Canada. They went missing in the Tirol area or nearby.
    When I mapped the three cities together, I noticed that they are on the same road (I am unable to put the map right now). This one is quite odd.
    The three of them had no reason to disappear into thin hair like this.

    They went missing between April and September, when the weather is sunny and warm. Katarina and Tabita went missing on a Saturday.

    The bold sentences are mine.


    I'm not sure that the pattern is strikingly similar in these three cases. However, the area is on the same road, between April and September, three women looking younger than their age.
    Hum hum, it is quite icky !!

    I have no clue how i landed in this thread, but as you mentioned you were not into the German, then i glanced through your links and quick google search.

    I do not think that this 3 cases are connected, i do see differences and situation variances, some links are not quite correct

    Katharina
    https://m.facebook.com/findetunserefreundinkatharina/
    She was confirmed seen by witnes 1 MONTH after the hospital
    No real similarities to the other two and diabetic, which also offers some possibility

    Tabita
    https://m.facebook.com/oesterreichfi...31285600280238
    Was in process of leaving husband and went missing during packing her stuff, seems to me likely a relationship issue, not further looked up for this husband

    Rita
    https://m.facebook.com/FindRitaBanG/
    Went hiking then seen and then dissapeared, for sure something happened to her, i just don' t get the vibe that it has anything to do with the other two.

    However, the one street... it is the Alps, there are not too many ways throu connecting the citites, and as you said, it is a small country.

    So for me three separate cases that ocured in Austria.

    I partially agree with your analysis.

    The only part I disagree with you is about the road. Quite easy to go there for holidays.


    The fact that Katarina was diabetic is not enough to rule out a SK. Think about Pickerton and the police finding one of the victim's asthma inhaler in Pickerton's home.
    Can you explain the dissimilarities with the other two ?

    For Tabita, the process of leaving her husband and missing while packing is not enough to rule out a SK IMO. In France, the case Yoni Palmier started this way by suspecting the victim's husband, but the police changed her mind when the killings continued with the same MO, in the same kind of area, while SO was in jail. First victim's ex-SO has finally been completely cleared because the overwhelming evidences show that the lady was killed by someone she didn't know. The perp was actually Palmier, a SK whom killed the four victims in a parking lot (different parking lots, but still parking lots). Palmier was sentenced with life and surety retention post-sentence, the highest sentence in the French legal system. This case reminds me about family is a likely reason, but beware the tunnel vision : we had quite a history of such cases when family was pointed as guilty, while overwhelming evidences disproved such hypothesis.
    So, in one word, Tabata's issues with her husband can be the reason why she went missing, but not enough to rule out the SK hypothesis.
    Can you tell me if she was alone on holidays in that day ? What about the husband's status per the police ? We need more biscuit to know better

    What can we know about Rita ?
