The 1965 murder at the Gunter Hotel, San Antonio, Texas. Someone made the mistake of mentioning it in front of me when I was 9-10. It's haunted me ever since. He described it as "that guy who put the woman through a meat grinder," but the article I just dug up doesn't mention that part. He did literally kill and butcher a woman in a hotel room, and has never been caught.

The Black Dahlia. Although the miniseries I Am The Night and its accompanying podcast Root of Evil suggest there is no way George Hodel didn't kill Elizabeth Smart. He was a total sociopath void of empathy and boundaries. And knowing he would never be an artist like Man Ray he tried to one-up them by creating a real-life piece of surreal art with Smart's body.

In many ways, Hodel was like Trump: weird personal boundaries with daughters; jealous of everyone; utterly devoid of empathy.; totally corrupt; likely on the spectrum.

I've always found the 1984 disappearance of Samuel Todd in downtown NYC to be eerie. Particularly the reoccurring dream his friend that was with him that night began having after he vanished:

"In 1984, the year of Sam's disappearance, I had a recurring dream. In it, he called from the pay phone outside our loft, and when I went to my bedroom window to look down at him, he laughed and ran away."

In that area, at that time, anything could have happened to him.

For those who posted re: Tara Calico case. I personally do not believe that Sheriff's explanation because when pressed, he would not provide more information and there have never been any remains found. If anything, the Sheriff's explanation would warrant more investigation IMO. This has never been done. And they are still holding back a lot of details on the case. Anyhow, that polaroid that was found is thought by her family to be one of three most legitimate photos that have surfaced in her case.

I’ve mentioned this before, on a similar thread, about these 3 missing girls, aged 17, 14, and 9. They disappeared Christmas Eve, from a shopping center in Fort Worth, in 1974. The police said they were runaways, which made absolutely no sense, since they left behind their vehicle packed with presents. No trace of them has ever been found.

I was 8 year old girl at the time, and raised in FW. And when I played with my Christmas presents, I would think of the nine year old and wondered if she had any dolls or toys to play with. I’m sure they’re dead, I just hope they were killed quickly and didn’t suffer for years in a sex ring or whatever.

God I fucking hope that poor woman wasn’t his victim, R93, but I believe it’s very likely. The Toybox Killer was active for 19 years, and while Belen is about 90 minutes from Elephant Butte where he lived, that’s really not far considering how he kidnapped some of his victims. By his own admission on the transcript of the very sick recording he would play for his victims when they woke up (I advise against anyone reading it— I’m a true crime veteran and almost threw up), he did drug and kidnap women from bats, but he also picked up victims who were jogging, biking, broke down on the side of the road. For crimes of opportunity like this In the desolate state of NM, he would have to cast a very wide net and spend a lot of time on the road, so it doesn’t seem far fetched that he would take “hunting trips” as far as way as just 90 minutes. There are other missing persons reports from Belen and the Albuquerque area where Tara was from that I believe are connected to David Parker Ray as well. There were also other people who attended his “parties” to watch his sick sexual assault and torture so I believe there was a larger network of people that assisted in obtaining victims and covering up their murders than just Ray and his wife. He told people he sold a lot of the women as slaves in Mexico, which I think was just a way to coverup their murder— why he would think the sub-humans who attended his parties would care is another question. While many victims were released and the final brave badass woman escaped, I think he killed dozens of women from accidental overdose of his drug cocktail or as a punitive measure. There is an insanely deep reservoir near his home where they could be easily disposed of, never mind the vast desert in general. Sadly the sick animal died in prison just before interrogations where we may have learned more about his victims, but I can’t shake the plausibility that he is connected to Tara’s case. Let’s just say that I hope for her sake that theory is false.

Maybe the kidnapper grabbed only one of them, and told the other two that he would kill her if they didn't cooperate and go along with his plan.

Not only are females generally more conciliatory rather than combative in hostile situations, but it's in their instincts to look out for/protect one another.

Either that, or they knew the perpetrator. I personally think it's the latter.

R126 I have wondered if the mother Sherrill knew the perp or perps and let them into the house and then the women got forced out. The people who went into the house said there were no signs of a struggle inside the house and everything was neat and nothing was stolen and Sherill had several hundred dollars in cash in her purse.

Springfield Three - it's a popular theory that the abductor(s) were known to the women, which is why the opened the door in the middle of the night. If you read about that case, it is so perplexing. Nothing but one question after another, hopefully it can be solved somehow. It is a total mystery exactly how that crime went down and what happened to the three women. Of course they're all dead, but what really happened that night?

I've posted this theory before. There was a book turned down on Sherrill's bed. She was reading in bed and heard something, maybe the porchlight breaking. So she opened the door to see what had happened and the perp pushed his way in. Maybe he told the women it was a robbery which is why their purses were lined up. By the time they realized why he was really there it was too late to fight back. This was something BTK had done so his victims would cooperate.

That's another theory r130. How many of us have heard a weird noise outside at night and opened the door and went outside to investigate without even thinking about it? I think everybody's done that at some point.

Said no woman ever. Not in real life.

And a lot of men, R132. And a lot of men.

All of the smart ones, as a matter of fact.

I've known lots of women who have done that.
