NC - WILLIAMS, Robert Scott, Union County
Decapitated body identified as North Carolina woman
...The woman was identified through DNA testing as 46-year-old Sharon Tucker Stone of Monroe, N.C., Chesterfield County Coroner Donnie Baker said.
Her case bears similarities to those of two women found dead in North Carolina's Union County, Union County (N.C.) Sheriff Eddie Cathey said.
"The bodies were found abandoned in areas of low traffic or creeks," he said, adding that the three women had "similar lifestyles."
...Authorities said they also hope to determine whether the women were killed by the same person. The two other women were found dead in 1997 and 2004, Cathey said.
Sharon House Pressley, 36, was found dead in September 1997 near the the border of Union and Cabarrus counties in North Carolina, Cathey said.
Christina Parker, 33, was found dead in January 2004 only a quarter of a mile from where Pressley was found, Cathey said.

Is there a possibility that a trucker may have done these crimes or a resident of that area? Are there more victims?
What is Union County, NC like?
What do the victims have in common that the article notes them having as "similar lifestyles"?
Rich? Poor? Same career choices? Problems with substances? Runaways?
Mothers with children? What is the link?Rest in Peace to my best buddy and baby, Buster ~ He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Jan. 3, 2011. I miss you, Buster and love you with all my being.

N.C., S.C. officers to investigate links among 3 women's deaths
Law enforcement officers in North Carolina and South Carolina will investigate the possibility that three women who were killed in the past nine years were victims of a serial killer.
Union County Sheriff Eddie Cathey said at a news conference Thursday that officers are investigating all possibilities, including that the deaths aren't connected. But he also said that investigators "are certainly concerned" that the deaths could be the work of a serial killer.
..."They all worked the streets, lived on the streets, lived a high-risk lifestyle," he said.
The bodies of the two other women were found near or in a creek in the northern part of Union County _ Christina "Christy" Parker, 33, of Charlotte in 2004 and Sharon House Pressley, 37, of Monroe in 1997.
Like Stone, both women had been shot in the head. Also like Stone, neither woman was reported missing before her death. All three also had criminal records.
Both Parker and Pressley had drug convictions, and Pressley was charged with prostitution seven months before her death, records show.

Professor says latest murder fits pattern of other slayings
11:51 AM EST on Wednesday, February 22, 2006
...UNC Charlotte criminology professor Paul Friday has a different answer. "From all the evidence that you've given me, it fits the classic stereotype of a missionary serial killer," he told 6NEWS.
Friday said it's one of the most common serial killers, someone who targets people like prostitutes, people who don’t fit their moral value.
"And they believe that they're actually doing society a favor," said Friday.
He said the mutilation is another layer to the profile of someone who finds sexual gratification from killing.
"So if they associate pleasure with the killing then when they feel tense again they're going to kill, and the more they kill the more frequently they want to do it," he said
Investigators are trying to see if a murder in Chesterfield is connected to two killings in Union County.

I totally agree with the professor's theory. Especially the part about the killings increasing. Don't think this is a trucker though...it seems to be very rural area. Actually I take that back. I started thinking of other applications of delivery to rural areas.

It would help to know what the mutilation was.Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........
Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

This sounds pretty scary. I do hope they can make some connections and get some answers soon.

I think there are more victims there's too much time lapsed in between. He may operate in different areas and use different MO's to throw off LE.

A man has been arrested in all 3 murders...
Authorities today said a state transportation department road crew worker who outwardly led "a regular life" has been charged with three counts of murder in the deaths of three women whose bodies were found over nine years in two states.
Scott Wilson Williams, 42, of Clontz Long Road, Monroe, was arrested about 1:30 a.m. today at his home, Union County Sheriff Eddie Cathey said at an afternoon press conference.
Cathey said Williams had no prior record and never been a suspect for anything in the past.
"He lived a regular life, worked a job, went to work every day," Cathey said. "He lived a normal life except for these three or four occasions."
Cathey was hesitant to describe the suspect as a "serial killer." He said the slayings weren't his original intent but developed from other actions. He would not elaborate.

Boy, does that fit. A state transportation employee. Knows the back roads into rural areas.Has a reason to be there and no priors.

They call this living a "regular" and "normal" life?
Give me a break. What is NORMAL about killing even once, twice and especially THREE frickin' times?
What kind of cop would say this?
Does this cop have a hand in this? Did the cop do it and pit it on this guy?
Seems like he's going easy on this fella.
