    Martin,

    I wasn't sure if you were aware that we have a 'missing forum' where you can create a thread for each missing person. That way information can stay specific to that person and they can be researched easier. I know you've posted these in several forums, but the missing forum would probably be better so they won't get lost in the shuffle.

    Here's the forum link:
    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=21

    You can look at several threads there for the typical format of the title and comment information.

    Oh, you might also want to do a search on the name first before posting it in the missing forum, as there might already be a thread started. New information can certainly be added if that's the case.

    I wasn't sure if you wanted to start a conversation on the possibility of a serial killer being involved in all of these? A mod or other member might be able to tell you best where to put that thread so that a conversation can be started on that particular thought.

    I hope that helps and that you aren't offended by my comment here. I'm hoping we can help find these missing women you write about.

    Take care, and thanks for caring for the missing.

    P.S. PM me if you need any help!

    Book Points To Killer of Penny Lease

    There is a new book that indicates a serial killer from Wabash, Indiana killed Penny Lease and several other Illinois girls. The book title is:

    Urges: A Chronicle of Serial Killer Larry Hall

    I have read this book. I believe this man killed Penny Lease. In case you want to read the book, here is the link on Amazon.com:

    So many of these women go missing either from a bar/ tavern or on the way to or from a party. Women, wise up! It isn;t safe out there and drinking alone in a bar just isn't safe. Always take along a friend and make a pact not to separate from each other. No "meeting a neat guy" and leaving with him. As for the going to/ from parties, do not ride or leave with someone you don't know. Be sure you have a ride to/ from, don't rely on people you don't know or random people to give you a ride home. If your mamma won't tell you, I will. Its a dangerous world out thee!!!

    Rest in Peace, Robbi 1980-2012
