Some are really good people, who love their families and wouldnt hurt another person for the world.It's like the song say's "one bad apple dont spoil the whole bunch".
    We have a 5th wheel and when times are not busy, we park in truck stops. This past spring we parked next to a 20 yr truck driver who had a German shepherd as a companion. We talked a bit before he explained the reason for the dog. The trucker said things had definitely changed in the years since he began driving, that he no longer interacted with drivers who now were not the honest people he once knew. Apparently, there is/was a storage of drivers, and not all who now drive are the cream of the crop, so to speak. He did his own maintenance, and the dog was protection, which he said worked well. Sad when a truck driver feels he needs protection.

    From various sources:

    The serial killer admitted to one of his victims he'd been doing this for 15 years. So he can have victims as early as 1975

    He's worked as a warehouseman, restaurant worker, long haul trucker,

    Some victims were shot with a 22 or 25 pistol

    He was born in Council Bluffs, Iowa
    His stepfather committed suicide after he was arrested for a sex crime against a child
    One of 5 children, one of his sisters committed suicide at age 12

    He was in the military, marines and dishonorably discharged and he wanted to be a policeman but was rejected.

    He was married 3 times.
    #1. 1970 in Oklahoma City
    #2. 1976 in Nebraska
    #3. 1984 in Houston

    What is the link to?

    Is it not incredibly creepy that the truck driver that found WCJD was named James RHOADES????
    Might be a brother. Might be a coincidence. The surname Rhodes isn't uncommon.

    On the other hand, I seldom see the spelling "Rhoades".

    Something about this man has excited me in the killing fields.


    The Texas Killing Fields was numerous serial killers killing independently - William Lewis Reece, Edward Harold Bell, Knoppa & Lanham, etc.

    In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if Henry Lee Lucas (and possibly Ottis Toole) killed a couple.

    It's possible Rhoades murdered a few of the girls.
