Default Ohio Prostitute Killer

In the segment, after it's suggested that the killer refrigerates some of the bodies, the reporter​ says, ".......There may be an indication that the killer is doing something with these victims, either verbally, physically or otherwise, after death.".
What does he mean by "verbally"?

My guess would be talking to the dead bodies.

Anyone else think that the investigator in this case was a bit odd. I thought him walking through the forest getting a sense of the victim and the killer was a bit out there.

Very much so. He also did another more recent show about this case in the 00's. Started looking like Ted Kaczynski.

Part of me always wondered if HE was the killer. Just kidding.

I think you're confusing two cases. The investigator you're talking about is John Philpin, who was walking through the forest and stuff for the Connecticut River Valley Killer case: http://unsolvedmysteries.wikia.com/w...t_River_Killer

The case that the original poster is talking about is the Ohio prostitute murders, with the reporter being Michael Berens:

This was always a case that was creepy to me and when I lived in Ohio I traveled most of those interstates often.

the various murders may not have all been by a truck driver. I read on the wikia that a couple of the victims had their cases solved involving different killers.

In this case the reporter did a good job of trying to connect the dots the best that he could. Since this broadcast I've seen a couple of other modern shows, fbi files to name one, that have featured killers who utilized their status as a truck driver. Some of the victims were prostitutes some were not. So as they said in the broadcast it was a major problem regardless of how you look at it.

I know most truck drivers are good people that work long hours. With that said hitchhiking would not be my preferred mode of transportation. I heard on BBC radio the other day, a lady giving a testimonial of her American holiday where she hitchhiked across America and stayed at homes of strangers(many of them friends of friends and so on). she said it was the best trip of her life. I thought wow she must have never watched UM as a child.

I've hitchhiked all over Ireland and England when I was younger. I have 3 concealed carry permits and an Illinois fcc card that allows me to carry in 42 states. I would still not hitchhike around the US. I would say it's actually safer to hitchhike today than it was back in the 70s n early 80s. When u think of all the serial killers from that time period and the amount of people that went missing while hitchhiking. And most of those killers were not truckers. Most truckers are hard working guys who are underpaid and want to be home with their families.

Sounds close IMO, though the region is different (killer could've figured it was time to move on lest he get caught and moved up into the Ohio River Valley there)

This was one of the darker segments featuring serial killer investigators. there may have been multiple criminals responsible for these crimes as there were other similar crimes around the country.

I never thought the Ohio murders were the work of one person. I also don't think all the Redhead murders were related; I think only the East TN (plus the Cheatham Co victim) and Eastern KY victims have a good likelihood of being the work of the same person.
