Currie is a ghost town with only 20 residents. 64 miles to the north you have Wells, NV with a population of 1,090, and 75 miles to the south you have Ely with a population of 3,990. His truck was parked miles to the north of Currie in the middle of high desert nowhere. There's nothing there but jackrabbits, pocket gophers, and the coyotes and badgers that hunt them. Slim pickings for a serial killer.
Again, gentle readers, if you haven't spent time -- significant amounts of time -- in the West, you just don't grasp the vastness of the desert and the conditions there.
"You must love the desert, but never trust it completely. Because the desert tests all men: it challenges every step, and kills those who become distracted." The Alchemist, in The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
