    KS - Alexis Dillard, 22, North Lawrence, Dec 1992

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...rd_alexis.html

    This is the case of Alexis Dillard, missing student from the University of Kansas. It is a case which parallels very closely with the "River Killers"/ "Smiley Face Killers" cases of the upper midwest.

    Thank you for bringing this over, I had posted it there on LTWH a while back, in addition to leaving a message on another site that is dedicated to these cases. However, I don't believe it was ever added on that site to their lists. I have not checked there recently though.
    This case has always seemed to fit exactly with the others, even though it is a bit earlier in time than most of those. I check occasionally for new information, but have never found anything. My older two children both attended KU, so it has been of special interest to me.

    I found this old article: Note the date is from 2002:

    I found this thread of a board called Porchlight for the missing and unidentified:

    Here's a review for David Paulides' book and the reviewer writes about Alexis.

    http://www.examiner.com/review/david...-hidden-murder

    Your author can speak to this directly. The photo provided with this article is of a young man, Alexis Dillard, who was a graduating senior in a class your author taught over 20 years ago. Your author shared a conversation with Alexis the very day he disappeared. He has never been found and there was no reason for him to run away or commit suicide.

    Despite how unreal his disappearance still seems (and there is much about his case that fits with the profile Paulides is trying to build), most people, his family, and your author, believe he drowned while trying to swim the Kansas River during a time of uncommonly high flooding.

    If he had been sucked down by the rapids into the lock system dam that is present at that point in the river, he would have been torn to pieces in seconds--and there would have been nothing left to find. No one likes to think about that, but that is probably what happened.

    The UID was found two years before Alexis disappeared.
    Six-year-old Shannon Sherrill disappeared from her front yard in Thorntown, Indiana in October, 1986. Someone knows where she is......

    Sorry I meant this one: http://doenetwork.org/cases/587umks.html. For some reason it came up as another one! I think the other one 2286umks is Anthony Patrick Sinisgalli
