    I thought Dark Minds did a great job! (They are airing the highway of tears documentary next wed at 10 PM!)
    I agree that the first and last cases with the same sex lovers are connected, but the gap of time between them is what's peculiar.
    The other couple murders, however, seem like they were done by an authority figure, or someone impersonating someone of authority. I wonder why they stopped after 1989??

    Maybe they moved away for a while, or they were in prison, or just tried real hard to resist the urge to kill

    Amber:

    Agreed that the murder of Cathy Thomas and Rebecca Dowski in Williamsburg, VA over Columbus Day weekend in 1986 do seem very similar to the killing of Julie Williams and Lollie Winans in the Shenandoah National Park over Memorial Day weekend in 1996. Regarding the time gaps between cases, the working theory is that the perpetrator or perpetrators were either transferred to another location, died, or were incarcerated for an unrelated crime.

    Bill, I am so very sorry about your sister. Have there been any new leads?

    Hello everyone! As I mentioned in another post, I am contemplating (actually it is hesitant contemplation at this point) a move to Newport News/Hampton. I was doing some research last night and oddly enough stumbled upon the following:

    http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com...c=109315&st=30

    THOUGHTS?

    As I also mentioned in another post, no native Richmonder is a stranger to I-64 with its direct route to beachy Virginia and Carolina destinations. I have traveled this area of 64 more times than I can count to visit friends, go to amusements parks...a day trip to hit the waves...and have recently started visiting a friend in Mathews. (There is a loooooooong stretch of 64 with absolutely NO cell service [not that this was applicable when these crimes happened].)

    Unfortunately, I have not heard from anyone when I tried to join the forum to look into the "personal" information if two of those posters.

    (I hope everything I posted/linked is acceptable and was done right. If not, feel free to lemme have it!! Hee.)

    I am looking for links confirming mentioned information might be true . So far I have this. But from 96.

    However, they were unable to think of a good place to leave him in the Hampton area so they made their way to an area just outside of Yorktown, Virginia. At the instruction of Atkins, Jones drove the truck for approximately twenty minutes on Interstate 64. They then exited at Lee Hall and headed northeast on Highway 238, followed by turning onto Crafford Road (which later turns to Crawford Road), a curvy asphalt road. They took Crafford a half mile before crossing into York County and entering the national preserve area of the Colonial National Historical Park, where there were no stores, houses, people, or streetlamps.

    Soulmagent, you are gooooooood.
    Let's put our heads together and see what we can unearth in time!!

    FYI ~ I am trying to gather information on a ("cold") case that happened here in Richmond when I was about 8...the child's school photo and facts, well lack thereof, of the case have haunted me for about 30 years. That case it what actually brought me to this WS!! (And no, there is no thread already in existence on this site.) I have noticed some of your other posts, and when I find my brain and get everything together, I'd LOOOVE to see what your brainstorming can bring to light!!

    This case is very interesting to me because I've lived in Williamsburg, VA my whole life. (Thankfully not much happens here in our quiet town.) I was a child when the murders happened and I didn't learn about them until I was older. I spent many evenings on the Colonial Parkway in the late '90s and early '00s. I'd park there with friends and boyfriends to hang out. One summer night some friends and I were in the water a little bit and a cop came by and told us we had to get out. Other than that, I never saw anyone else parked anywhere at night.

    I wonder if the murderer is dead or in prison? Every so often I check for updates, but I never see any.

    I remember this case well as we used to live in the area and I still have family there. Drove this road many times. JMO, thought it might have been someone in the military who has since moved on to another location.

    Seems like more of a sexual predator in the Virginia Beach case, whereas, the Colonial Parkway killer targets couples in secluded areas.
