    Although they are referred as a "fourth set" of remains in some reports, it's possible that these are remains belonging to one of the three women already identified, since their remains were only partially recovered in 2007.

    I was just going to post this, but you beat me to it, lol! Yeah from what I've heard the remains found have not yet been confirmed to have come from a 4th individual, and if I remember correctly very few bones from one of the ID'd women were found, and they never found her skull. Hopefully this new find will yield clues to the identity of the killer...

    I'm meeting my daughter at Westfarms Mall for lunch tomorrow. I'll let you know if I see anything interesting.

    The New Britain police just wrapped up a press conference. In addition to Cusack, Martinez and Menard, at least FOUR more additional sets of remains have been discovered, and one of THOSE has already been identified as Melanie Camilini who went missing from Seymour, CT in 2003. Police have a suspect in custody on an unrelated charge. They believed all 7 people were killed by the same person, and that the newly discovered remains have been there for over a decade.

    I'm curious if one of other sets of remains belong to Nilsa Arizmendi and if William Howell was somehow involved in these deaths:

    Forgot to update this -- no, I couldn't see anything from the road. They had apparently finished by the time I was there. But the area is still heavily treed and quite isolated even in the daytime. It's right at the end of the exit ramp from route 9 in an area that is even now pretty empty after the malls close at night. He could have pulled off the highway and been behind the restaurant (don't know if it was there at the time) in less than half a minute. Even if he had been seen, he would most likely have been taken for an employee leaving after closing up.

    Rumor on the street was that the man they suspect went to jail in 2007 and that's why there aren't any killings more recent than that. Sounds like the media articles are saying more or less the same thing?

    In that case, it definitely sounds like William Devin Howell (see my post above).

    Other women missing in CT, pre-2005: Bettina Scott, Marilyn Gonzalez, Zelma Ortiz, Evelyn Frisco. Also Daniel Whistnant, who lived as a woman.

    Two names the locals were mentioning were Maria Anjiras and Omayra Velasquez. Those are both much older cases.

    The Boston news mentioned that they're also looking for connections with the New Bedford murders (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Bedford_Highway_Killer) in 1988-89. There are other unsolved murders around New England that fit a similar profile that are also being looked at.

    I hope we get some answers soon.

    He's 45 now, which would make him just 18-19 at the time of the New Bedford murders. Totally possible though. I wonder where he was in the late '80s.

    Another to add to the list is Monica Hartnett https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/26821/0

    Also, it looks like Maria Anjiras is not a possibility any longer - Howell would have only been 6 years old at the time of her disappearance.

    i just came to post this.. that they named a suspect.

    they need to look for his wheeabouts in the previous years, one doesnt just ball out and start killing 7-8 women in ONE year. they start off slower i thought.

    Yeah, I think they are looking at Monica for the Doe found in Vernon, CT. But neither suggestion is outside the realm of possibility.
