All I know of Tracy Neef's death is contained in this post, I do not have any additional information. Reading her death it sounds rather familiar. http://blogs.denverpost.com/coldcas...r-vanishes-after-mom-drops-her-off-at-school/ We know that Dennis Raider of BTK fame in Witchita the self-proclaimed "BTK killer" (BTK is a self-imposed moniker standing for "Bind, Torture, and Kill"). He confessed in 2005 to the serial killing of 10 people in the Wichita, Kansas area from 1974 to 1991. I know there are copyright issues so I'll post her death Tracy was found lying sideways with her knees bent together and her hands lying palm down on her belly. Her school supplies were scattered around her body. “It appeared like she was placed there and not thrown there,” Parker said. Tracy had a scratch on her right cheek and one above her left eye that appeared to be caused by a fingernail. The marks may have been caused as the kidnapper tried to control Tracy after pulling her into his car. Tracy had ligature marks on both wrists indicating she had been tied with a rope or cord, Parker said. Some rapists and killers carry abduction tools like rope with them in their cars, he said. She waswearing her jeans and t-shirt. It was a key piece of evidence along with other signs that Tracy may have died before the kidnapper could sexually assault her, Parker said. A ligature mark on her right chin that may have been caused by a coat strap is another clue. While trying to silence Tracy, the killer may have tied her coat so tightly above her mouth that she could not breathe, he said. While her kidnapper may have intended to kill Tracy from the moment he saw her, killing her may have been an act of desparation or a mistake, Parker said. Tracy’s autopsy later showed that she died of asphyxiation, Parker said. Although there were signs that Tracy was molested, the attacker did not remove her clothes or rape her, indications the kidnapper may have changed his plans after killing the girl prematurely, Parker said. The fact that Tracy’s body was left so close to a well-traveled road, Highway 119, may indicate the killer panicked and quickly disposed of the body. All this child killer had to do is keep the body, then send a letter to Neef's demanding a ransom, and we have a Jonbenet like situation here. What-if, this child killer sent a RN to the Neef's? This murder allows us to test out RDI objections -- many RDI questions to JB could apply equally to Neef. What would you say was the motive? If the motive of kidnapping for ransom why did he dispose the body? If the motive was sexual assault, why did he not do more and then dispose of the body? Why dispose the body in a highly trafficked area? If Neef's wrist and mouth were bound, what would be the reason to kill her and throw away her supplies? And the placing of the body sounds like staging? Or some psychological symbol? As this case was never solved, this killer was free to kill again. And Neef was a 7 y/o wf. JB 6 AND beauty pageant.
