I am so happy I live in Canton and not Rocky Mount. This would make me a bundle of nerves.

Wow, thanks Terry. An interesting find. It's also concerning why I haven't heard much news wise, and seems somewhat quiet. Wonder why the people in as well as outside the area; and main stream media hasn't questioned all this. Someone dropped the accountability law? People need to know, as well as it be taken more seriously ............thanks..........good find............although disheartening.

There was a similar case in N.Y. several years ago. Finally a man was stopped by a policeman for some other reason and happened to find that he had the body of a young woman in his car. He later showed them where he had put the bodies of several other women. He also showed them things he saved that he had taken from women he murdered such as their driver's licenses, etc. The saddest part of this was one of the women who was murdered had been a neighbor of mine when she was young. I can recall that she was a very sweet kid. She came from a normal family with both a mother and father who were married. It seemed that she had gotten addicted to drugs and her parents could not find her (she was over 18). It was possible that if the murderer did not kill her, she might have eventually been helped, but he made sure that would never happen. .

Scarey stuff... sherbet women just seem to be more vunerable, especailly those that walk the streets... we have to be vigilant, and stick to the safer places.. Hope they catch this person and that justice will prevail

unfortunately there seems there will always be the kind of trash that have such a low opinion of themself that they have to take the mudereous route they travel! and it's the women always,or children who pay the pice.and yet when there caught there kept in jail and we pay for themto live out there life.whyis that? what's the matter with a long drawnout termination?nope that wouldn't be if they were?rest in as much piece ladies,as much as you can considering the circumstances of your death .

there are no safe places/ My god There were child molesters in the churches . If you think there is safety it is questionable at best. if we stop letting criminals walk free after molesting and raping then maybe it could be stopped. They probably graduate to murder.NO one deserves to die like that. There is no place that is safe. It it also NOT exclusive to women. DAHMER anyone. JOHN W. GAZEY (or whatever his name was) the one who filled his basement or crawl cellar with victims. They are all over the place. Your husband, your cousin, the milk deliverer, the lad who delivers the rx. You just never know what any of us will have happen. Let us NOT forget the parents of some of these sicko's. Do you know the horror they must relive day after day knowing what there child did? To never be able to forget. . People never live these things down. They take it to their grave . Trying to figure in their heart what went wrong with their child they loved.
