This is a good read. Makes it tough to tell who the suspects might be.
Interesting article not only for the information itself, but for the couple of coincidental UM connections in it:

"It used to be the place to go. It used to be the safe haven," says Sgt. Pat Postiglione, a detective with the Metro Nashville (Tenn.) Police Department. "But now, I think the opposite is occurring."

Pat Postiglione was interviewed in the second season segment about the 1989 murder of Kevin Hughes.

An autopsy showed no signs of trauma, and a coroner's report completed last month indicated that Vaughn likely wasn't a murder victim. "Cocaine intoxication is what killed her," says Pickaway County Sheriff Dwight Radcliff. Derenberger is "not the smartest guy in the world," Radcliff says, "but I don't think he's a serial killer."

In the seventh season "Circleville Writer" segment, Dwight Radcliff figured in greatly, as he was mentioned in the Circleville letter actually sent to UM.

Yes there was a lot of um in that article. I also agree that there are so many different crimes like this not just in Ohio which makes it likely that there are multiple criminals. I found it interesting in another segment to hear bob stack reference someone to interstate killings in Ohio.

It was Robert Watson who was a wanted fugitive for rape and assault. He was a truck driver as well.

It bothered me when one of the investigators said that Anna Marie Patterson was raped after her death and had been kept in refrigeration for a month before her body was dumped alongside the highway. Gives me the willies.

I recently watched a 48 Hours documentary about the "Highway of Tears" murders that started in 1969 and involved young girls, most of them hitchhikers. Would have been interesting to see those cases on Unsolved Mysteries. Would've fit in with the Ohio, New Orleans and New Hampshire murder cases.

Yeah that's what makes the ohio truck segment creepy...the way she was kept after the initial assault.

I may have something of an update on this case, as I haven't seen this discussed in this thread I am assuming no one on the board knows it. I know it because it happened not far from where I live and it was on the local news here.

There was a man arrested near Bristol, Tennessee in 1995 named Sean Patrick Goble, and it was in connection with several murders which occured in North Carolina and Tennessee of truck stop prostitutes. The MO was very similar to the Ohio slayings, and he did go by the CB handle Stargazer, same as the Ohio killer.

To the best of my knowledge, Goble's trucking routes did take him across Ohio. But the public defender in the area has not allowed him to be interviewed, so there is some doubt about exactly how many truck driving slayings he has been involved in. I have understood that these slaying stopped around the mid 90's, around the time of his arrest. So if thats the case it definitely makes him a person of interest and may well have solved the case at least to some degree.

Unsolved Mysteries mentioned that there were well over 100 unsolved murders similar to this, so I doubt if Goble was responsible for all of them. But I still felt it was well worth mentioning in this thread, as it certainly seems possible he was involved in at least some of the Ohio slayings, though nothing is certain. And its noteworthy that the man responsible for at least some of these slayings could already be in jail.

If anyone has followed this case it would be interesting to compare notes. Goble was 29 years old when he was arrested in 1995, but I'm not sure when the murders started. If anyone who lives in Ohio is on the board and can elaborate on some details feel free to post and tell me what you think about the possibility of this guy being involved in some of the Ohio slayings.

This is the best article I could find on Goble:
http://everything2.com/title/The+Stargazer+killer

Enjoy!
And that would make sense. Unless a serial killer is going to use a firearm (which still doesn't address the means of escape), people who get close to 40 start to have serious mobility issues, as well as a confidence crisis, on average. There's a reason why "psychopaths" (with the Columbine post above) mellow out around that time; it's because they can't do it anymore. Serial killing is a young man's game.

I think back to the East Area Rapist where people ask why he stopped. He was probably around 35, and his means of escape (by foot) were such that he lost a bit of an edge and sharpness in pulling strategically-demanding moves. Further, it can't be easy to kill someone, especially by hand. By hand, it must be physically exhausting. With firearms, far less exhausting but you can still get trauma for doing it. (A number of SS soldiers who shot thousands of Jews were known to vomit despite the severe brainwashing they underwent in training, which is no different but possibly more severe than the brainwashing that the USMC goes through.)

That guy is from my hometown. I sometimes wonder how many of those unsolved murders he is responsible for. He was a driver for many years; I think there has to be more victims than the ones he was charged with.

Bumping this one. I like xcaliburs post that got a reply above. I lived in Ohio and drove down the same freeways so this one stayed with me. I think it is very possible that someone arrested for murders in Tennessee could have been killing people in Ohio. Perhaps the murders in Ohio would not have been noteworthy if not for the investigative reporting by the Columbus dispatch. Interestingly I just watched American justice Keith jesperson episode. He confessed to killing 8 women and was only caught because he killed a fellow truck driver. That has to be the fourth or fifth documentary on truck driver serial killers that I've seen.

This article was written earlier this year. It says that Anne Marie Patterson was dropped off at the truck stop by her husband on the night she disappeared. The prostitutes dubbed him "Dr. No" because they did not want anything to do with him. Her husband claims she turned down "Dr. No" that night. The most interesting part was that a detective claimed that "Dr. No" was not considered a suspect in Anne Marie's murder, or the other possibly linked murders. Of course, this could've been a ruse to get him to come forward. But it makes it less likely that if the women knew "Dr. No" and recognized his voice, that they would willingly enter the truck with him. Not to mention that it would also mean that they had interacted with him in the past, possibly several times, and that they were left unharmed.

I remember what Robert Stack said in the UM segment about the so-called Valley Killer (the serial killer who struck in New Hampshire during the 1980s). He noted that the best hope is that the killer is incarcerated for another crime; the worst nightmare is that he's still on the loose.[/QUOTE]

I remember him saying that too. Totally creepy but also got the point across.

So who was Stargazer? Was that Dr No's CB Radio nickname? I haven't seen the UM segment for years. Thanks

Stargazer was brought up and explained by XCalibur here.
