    TX - Selena Kuykendall & 5 other unsolved homicides in Lubbock, 1999-2007

    Another Lubbock woman has been found dead laying on the outskirts of town and is the 4th victim found under similar circumstances. This woman lived in an area and frequented an area where several other women were stun gunned, abducted, bound, gagged, raped, then released out in a country area last year. Also, Jennifer Wilkerson and Peggy Merrimon are still missing.

    This is horrific in itself and the implications lead to thoughts someone is getting away with systematic murder over and over again.

    could it be more than one person involved in the abductions? some kind of 'club'?

    It seems th have several missing and or murdered young women in Lubbock. I also wonder if two or more cases may be connected; but, I don't know enough to have an opinion. I will keep Jennifer and her family in my thoughts and in my prayers.

    Where is Lubbock in relation to Houston wasn't/isn't there an issue there with woman turning up missing and then found dead. Is this close enough to be the same guy? Altough I think I heard that was more than 1 killer in Houston.

    Spazz, Lubbock is about 10-11 hours northwest of Houston, in the Texas panhandle.

    I'm in Abilene, just over 2 hours southeast of Lubbock and there is no local news about these murders. I've had to follow them on the net.

    From the above linked article:

    In July of 1999, in almost the same location where Kuykendall's was found, Amanda Gschwend's body was found near Olive and East Municipal Drive. Ray Medford was indicted for her murder in May 2005, but was released last year on a $10,000 bond.
    Wonder where this dude is?

    We live in Lubbock and hubby and I have long thought that we have a serial killer working the area. I do not go anywhere alone after dark and we keep a very close eye on the kids. Too many similarities between all of the cases for it to be a coincidence.

    Keep us posted Jodieo! I am glad you are being extra careful.

    I wonder about the latest victim. Was she an every-day family-type person who would have been aware of the local danger, or was she unfamiliar or new to the area? Gainfully employed or raising kids? Married, single, risky behavior or very responsible?

    Very true!

    I wonder if this one is a case of someone wanting to get rid of her and dumping the body in a manner similar to previous unsloveds they've heard about on the news? I don't remember any of the other victims being associated with this type of lifestyle, but maybe I missed something.

    Don't serial killers usually start with easier victims such as prostitutes or young people involved in risky lifestyles, then progress to more mainstream type victims as they become bolder? Hmmm... maybe this one isn't the same killer...

    Women also missing & murdered in Midland/Odessa

    Here's the link to a thread I started about women missing in Odessa and Midland which are near Lubbock. Like Jodieo, I have long thought there is a serial killer in the area - though it's difficult to say if all these cases are related.

    31-year-old Becky Jane Williams - Midland, missing Oct. 1, 2006
    43-year-old Paula Jean Tinonga - Midland, missing in Oct.2006
    39-year-old Sandra Lee Pelfrey [aka Sandra Lee Schairer]- Ector County/Odessa - missing Nov 23, body found Jan 2, 2007

    There may be more missing from this area. It's difficult to find any mention of them.

    Merimon is still missing. No suspects named, though police
    do have a suspect.

    April 2007- Selena Kuykendall's body found in east Lubbock.



    I'll add these two victims to the list because I can't find anything about the murders being solved:

    April 2000 Tracy Anderson-Smith found deceased lying in road, head gash
    May 2000 Stefanie Hill, a tech student Found deceased in her apt. in
    North Lubbock, head injury and small fire had been set

    Also, similarly, Miss Carbajal had a head injury and Palacio had been strangled.

    More cases from 1993 and no news reports of being solved:

    April 1993 Sherry Ann Ragsdale Dorsey, 28, body found in apt. beaten
    and strangled

    August 1993 Bobbie Ann Fields, 37, body found in field at East 14th &
    Keel beaten

    Dec. 1993 Kimberly Ann Groseclose, 18, body found at East 50th & Loop
    last seen in October at truckstop,

    Jan. 1984 Charlotte Ivey,44, body found in a laundromat where she had
    been living, stabbed 4 times

    Medford's attorney has issued a statement claiming the a DNA sample will willingly be given in case there is dna to compare in Selena's murder and that he didn't do it. Medford still claims innocence in the murder of Amanda Gschwend. I'm not sure who he is or how they finally came to charge him with this crime. I'm going to try and search for any info.
