    Hi Caitlin. I knew Devin. His girlfriend Dorothy was my BFF! We thought he was from N.C. He had friends there and traveled back & forth from CT. My son just remembered that we stopped on the way back from a Florida vacation that we took with Dorothy and her daughter. We stopped and got a room and Dorothy went to meet Devin. My son remembers it being right over the border from Virginia. He also used to camp out a bit at a state park in Torrington/ Litchfield area. I remember once Dorothy was mad at him bcuz she had found a reciept from a motel in Southington he had stayed at once. I am just trying to remember as much as I can. My stomach has been in knots since I found all this out! Last year he sent Dorothy's sister Cheyenne an obituary that he had found with Dorothy's first and middle name and my last name. Cheyenne sent it to me. Creeps me out bad now! And I am wondering if maybe he hadn't begun killing yet when I knew him? All the victims disappeared in 2003. I moved out of state in Jan. 2003. God rest their souls and bless their families!

    You think it's hard to stomach. I knew him. His girlfriend Dorothy was my best friend. They spent alot of time at my home in Berlin. I moved away in January of 2003. Last year he found an obituary with Dorothy's first and middle name and my last and sent it to Dorothy's sister. She sent it to me. I am going to look for it. It has been creeping me out. Dorothy had a big heart. I can't believe she would try to cover for him. It is just something that you would never expect to happen to you or anyone you know. It is so hard to understand how anyone could do such a thing. Especially when it is someone you are close to.

    Who is the previous girlfriend? It sounds like an incident between him and DH.

    Do you know there is a WDH FB page? I typed it in the other day and a page comes up. Nothing on it. Cover photo of a mass of bikers. ??? Who would create a page with his name? He can't go on FB in prison, can he?

    What or where would they search that they need a warrant for? He has been in prison for years now.

    This link only goes to an article saying there is a warrant but no interview? Please keep me updated. I am not in the state of CT anymore. Thanks!

    Nothing new here, really, but an interesting read.

    Bones provide answers, but leave more questions
    Posted on May 23, 2015 by Lisa Backus

    NEW BRITAIN — Clad in jeans and boots anthropologist Kristen Hartnett-McCann and investigator Michelle Clark spent more than two weeks in the woods here looking for the skeletal remains of victims of a presumed serial killer.

    They waded through muck, mire and three feet of freshly unearthed dirt to help find four bodies, three women and a man who police believe had been buried at the remote crime since 2003. Their work with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will likely help connect William Devin Howell to seven murders, with each of the victims found within a one-acre area of woods.

    Not to split hairs, but your economic descriptions of CT regions is not correct...at least not within the last decade or so. Farmington & West Hartford are affluent areas. And "north" CT does not define wealth in that region.
    I know, I lived there.
