    Did anyone notice that no less than 3 teenagers disappeared mysteriously from Mesa, AZ in 1974 and within only a few months? The Leslie sisters and Robert Raymond Parks. It's frustrating that so little information is available about the Parks case. In the 70's and 80's, there was a rash of abductions of teenagers. Of course teenagers disappeared in other decades as well but the 70's-80's definitely saw an increase in abducted teenagers. When several cases are concentrated in the same city in a short time span, it usually indicates cult or prostitution/sex ring activity. I strongly suspect that the Parks case falls into one of these 2 categories.

    Anyone have thoughts on this?
