    MO - Dennis Glenn Spriggs, 47, LaBelle, 15 July 1992

    The FBI may be on the trail of a serial killer with Utah ties. ABC 4 News has learned agents have ordered at least three bodies exhumed as part of their investigation. (more at link)

    How interesting. I wonder if they know who the killer is if they have identified 3 possible victims?

    I'm hoping this story will ring a bell to someone at WS and they'll be able to make a connection to the killer for us. Maybe they'll remember reading about an arrest or something. I'll tell you what though. LE in Utah has gotten so tight with info on investigations that we only learn about them after an arrest is made. So I doubt I'll hear much more about it in Utah.

    It seems to be working very well for them, though. Thanks for posting that article SuziQ.

    I'm also wondering if this is related to the recent development of isotopic hair analysis in Utah.

    Thanks Sable! I remember the case from Utah. So far Donald Younge seems like a good fit.

    An FBI investigation leads to the exhumation of three bodies in Utah and Missouri. Details of what they're looking for are not being made public, but there is speculation the corpses could be linked to a serial killer. (more at link. Video included)

    At the below link is another article saying basically the same thing others say. But there is an interesting post by a supposed family member.

    http://www.ktvotv3.com/news/news_story.aspx?id=100731

    shocked
    I am a distant reliative of this man and am very shocked by this. Denny was such a nice man. I still cant believe no autopsy was done in 92 when he died. He was only in his 40's. With no heart condiitons. Very strange

    If the others are male, I'd say someone is trying to see if there was some kind of black widow serial at work. The nebulous nature of Mr. Spriggs's death made me think of that. If there was no sign of violence when he passed away, that might mean poisoning, and sometimes that points to a female killer. If it was a male killer, he was probably young at the time, very smart, and may still be free. I know all that is the height of pure speculation, but hey, that's why we're here, right?

    Lol, that is exactly why we are here. Your mention of a woman made me think of a wife or girlfriend. So I went back to a previousy linked article to see if there were more comments from the family. Dang, there weren't any. And there is nothing new I could find. There's mention that info on this case will be released soon. This ought to be interesting when it does come out.

    Hello--I found this post while looking for more information about this exhumation, which occurred about 40 miles from me. A good friend of mine (who has ties to the family) has told me that Mr. Spriggs' wife at the time of his death is the suspect in the case. She is also a suspect in the suspicious deaths of other people in Utah, I believe a subsequent husband and a maybe a business partner. From what I have been told, authorities believe some type of long-term poisoning may have been the cause of death.
