Highway to Hell? Overlapping Disappearances at the Pumpernickel Valley Off-Ramp

leave a comment »

Reading this really creeps me out. When I was about 13 years of age, my family and I took a long road trip to see my Aunt. To think that we travelled these area’s just gives me the major willies now that I think back on it. Good thing I was a kid and my parents and siblings were with me.

According to the FBI Highway Serial Killings Initiative
homicidal truckers have left more than five hundred victims scattered along America’s interstates.
Though the ubiquity of these motoring maniacs goes unmentioned in AAA travel brochures the peril is undeniable:
at highway rest stops predators outnumber clean toilets,
and a cross-country traveler is far more likely to encounter a budding Ted Bundy
than a roadside restaurant serving vegan meals.
If Jack Kerouac wrote On the Road today it would be a blood-soaked penny dreadful.

The words on the Nevada Highway Patrol dash cam recording are faint yet still intelligible: “I’ll never drive at night again.”

The date is April 13th, 2011 and Patrick Carnes, age eighty-six,
has been pulled over on Interstate 80 near Wells, Nevada
for failing to change lanes while passing a parked police cruiser.

Smart lad, to slip betimes away/From fields where glory does not stay

The search for Louis Mackerley attracted a predator, but was it the same predator who abducted him?
Five decades later, the echoes of Bobby Panknin’s disappearance continue to resonate
Jackie Theel’s first day of school may have been his last
One Andy, Andy Sims, entered the realm of the unknown in Wichita in 1961
Another Andy, Andy Puglisi, plunged into the void a decade later and half a continent away
Ending on a high note: this four-part saga about the disappearance of Eric Larsfolk and John McCormick Jr. is so gripping the Caledon Enterprise decided paragraph breaks were unnecessary (part 1 + part 2 + part 3 + part 4)

2:10pm, August 7th, 1988. At the conclusion of his overnight hunting trip twenty-four year old Sam McClain returned to the East Houston rambler he shared with his common-law wife and toddler son.
Upon his arrival he found the front door closed but unlocked;
the stereo was on, the air-conditioner hummed but otherwise the home was silent.
Sam McClain stepped across the threshold believing himself to be a husband and father—he would soon learn he was neither.
On the living room floor lay the body of his twenty-four year old wife Linda Flora;
clad in a bloodied white sundress, she’d been repeatedly stabbed before collapsing atop a pile of baby toys.
The couple’s thirteen month old…
