The Serial Killer Next Door.

At any given moment there are between 35-50 serial killers active in the US. This is a conservative estimate made by former FBI Criminal Profiler and author John Douglas. Douglas has worked on many high profile cases. Have you read the books Red Dragon or Silence of the Lambs (or watched the movies)? The character of Jack Crawford is based directly on Douglas.

Why is this important? Because serial killers can strike anywhere. Starting in November of 2014 women started disappearing in and around Chillicothe, Ohio.  by June of 2015 6 women in all had disappeared, the bodies of 4 of them had been recovered. Slowly word started slipping out, a Serial Killer may be preying on young women.When police arrived they made a shocking discovery. In his car was a list of names, phone numbers and addresses of 10 other women in the area. His trunk was a serial killers tool kit, hatchets, shovels, knives, sledgehammers, handcuffs. He could very well be the person who murdered those women in Ohio, investigators are currently working to find a link between him and disappearances in Illinois, Kentucky and Nevada.
Ladies, be safe. 

On July 18, 2015 an escort in West Virginia's capital city of Charleston meet a man on The John asked her "Live or Die?" before he began choking her. The escort managed to grab his gun and fired one shot over her shoulder, striking and killing him.
