    Robert Bowman was only convicted of the murder of one young girl, but it is more than likely that he abducted, tortured, and murdered many more in his years of freedom before he was eventually caught, tried, and convicted. He is currently imprisoned for life in Ohio.

    He lived in Toledo, Ohio, in California, and in Florida - and probably other states, as well as traveled through many more.

    Perhaps a study of this monster could help other unsolved, cold cases and missing persons cases. Bowman is a true psychopath with no feeling whatsoever for any of his victims.

    Robert Bowman sentenced to life for 1967 murder of Eileen Adams, 14 | Daily Mail Online


    The case Bowman was convicted of is that of a 14-year-old girl named Eileen Marie Adams, who was abducted in Toledo, in December 1967 and kept for some time tied in a cellar, tortured, then murdered and her body dumped in Michigan, just south of Ann Arbor on Route 23.

    In 1969, some investigators were trying to link her case to that of seven other murders, thought to be the work of a single serial killer, or group of killers. But Eileen's murder was never officially linked to the Ann Arbor Co-ed (Michigan) Murders and it remained cold for decades.


    Here are some links, including a separate thread on Eileen's case here on Websleuths:

    After reading this article I would have no doubts that this man has many victims. At least he is locked up now where he cant hurt anyone else. What a whack job.
