    CT - WM DEVIN HOWELL, New Britain, 2003 and possibly earlier

    This plaza is very busy and hugely popular with college students nearby. That being said, no one really goes around to the back. I'll be interested to see who it could be. This is right near two major highways, so they could be from anywhere.

    Bones Likely Of Two Women

    Remains Behind Plaza Were There For Years
    By ARIELLE LEVIN BECKER | Courant Staff Writer August 25, 2007 NEW BRITAIN - Police believe the bones found behind a Hartford Road shopping plaza on Monday came from two different women and had been there for four to 10 years.

    Investigators believe one of the women was in her early 20s, but could have been as young as 18, New Britain police Capt. Philip J. Kennedy said. The other woman is believed to have been between 30 and 40 years old, he said.

    Investigators returned to the site Friday to begin an extensive excavation and search, which is expected to last through today.

    Very interesting! Thanks for posting this. I am also curious who these victims might be and if more will be found.

    About twelve years ago a young girl was found shot to death in this exact same spot. She was never identified and there has never been much publicity about her case. This has been very troubling for me as I've driven by that spot nearly every day for the past for years on my way to college, and pumped gas countless times at the Sunoco station right down the street. To think that I was that close to something this gruesome makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. I hope we get some answers soon.

    I grew up in the area and am very familar with the West Farms area. Can someone please explain to me which plaza they are talking about? Thanks so much!

    How long has the shopping plaza been there? Was it a truck stop before or something?

    It certainly sounds like it could be a truck driver as in the case with the woman that got away (story mentioned in the thread above).

    That plaza has been there for as long as I can remember (15+ years). Its close proximity to route 9 makes it a convenient dumping ground, as the killer could've fled far away in either direction within minutes. Those women could literally be from anywhere.

    It does sound like a premium place for a trucker to be involved then. I was wondering if there could be more bodies on the site where it was built, but if it has been there for so long...maybe not.

    Exclamation More remains have been found

    Police discovered a third set of female remains yesterday while searching for more evidence in the other two cases.

    Including Jane Doe, this makes 4 bodies found in the area so far.

    This has got to be a trucker of some kind dumping bodies across State lines where publicity about a missing person is far removed from CT. Unless the missing women frequented truck stops and were unknown in the area where they went missing so no one reported them missing..4 bodies in the same location has got to be a serial killer.

    There was a serial killer named Keith Jesperson that had a similar MO as far as taking women from truck stops. He has been in jail for awhile now....I think longer than 4 years.

I think there is a lot to discuss here.

    I also think it would be a good idea to merge these two threads. There's no doubt in my mind that they're related. It will be interesting to see if a cause of death for the other three women is established, and if they died from large caliber gunshots as well.

    They just found the 3rd (actually 4th) body, so I think it's still possible that more remains could be found (although I hope not!). I'm assuming they did a thorough search of the area for evidence when Jane Doe was found in '95, so all the bodies they've found have been placed there since then, although one never knows, as the wooded area behind the plaza is rather large. I believe they've searched over thirty acres, and still have more to go.

    Remember the trucker who kidnapped and raped that woman in CT last year? What route was that on?

    LOL - I'm quoting myself. My father just confirmed that incident I mentioned above happened on 84 up towards MA. It is important to note that these remains were located in a plaza not far from 84. I'm not saying the two are related, but 84 is definitely a busy interstate and does have lots of truck traffic.

    Does anyone know if any of these people have been identified?
