Yes it happened in November of 1985. As far as I know there are no updates to this case.

Yes. You have some excellent theories here. I think something is missing though. Do you recall on the segment when Robert stack said that a few months later another driver had an altercation with a truck on the freeway, and someone made a reference to Dexter's murder?! He was talking on a CB Radio and someone said that if he didn't watch out he'd be taken care of just like the old guy at the rest stop? And also writing about the murder on a bathroom stall. I think multiple persons know about this case, and are involved in it. I think for some reason Dexter was targeted, maybe he heard/saw something he shouldn't have and was a witness to a crime, and these persons killed him to keep him quiet. I don't think he was killed just so they could take his car, and I know he wasn't robbed since he had $$ in a case on him. I think your right though in saying he was followed, and the killer(s) teamed up on him. But his body wan't found until 3 months later, where was it in the 3 months that he was missing? I don't think it was there all along, or someone would have found it sooner, don't you think?

The threat you are referring to sounds like the one mentioned in the segment about Dwayne McCorkendale, the trucker who was shot to death at an Oklahoma rest stop in 1988.

I've just mentioned in the Glenn Consagra's thread that there were no pictures of the victims: Freddie and Mary Lou. In the segment of Dexter Stefonek's murder, UM did not present a composite sketch of the murderer, even though at the beginning of the segment Robert Stack mentioned that there is one composite sketch of the suspect. It would be interesting to compare this sketch(if there is such a sketch) with the one from the suspect in the case of the Blind River Rest Stop Killings. As I have mentioned before, in my opinion, the 2 cases can be related.

UM did present a composite sketch in the Dexter Stefonek-case, however, the description of the suspect was somewhat vague.

I don't remember a composite sketch....

While the police believe that Dexter's car was set on fire to create a diversion/destroy evidence, it would make more sense to me to leave it abandoned/untouched, because it would lead people to believe that Dexter had problems and wandered off, like they initially thought. Of course once they found him, that would show otherwise, but the killer could still get away.

How do you figure this??

The modus operandi for each case is dissimilar with the sole exception of each assault occurring at a rest stop. Unfortunately, thatís not a real valuable clue in tying these cases together because many varied assaults occur at rest stops. Rest stops, by their very nature, are often isolated locations where criminals can pick and choose from a parade of potential victims. In my opinion thatís where the similarity of these cases ends.

In fact Iím not entirely convinced Dexter Stefonekís murderer was preying on the rest stop as a potential victim ďhunting groundĒ, as Iím 100% positive the Blind River Rest Stop killer was.

Iíd love to read your explanation on what leads you to believe these crimes were perpetrated by the same individual.

It was only a "guess" motivated by the frustation that these two cases haven't been solved ( I thought that Ronald Glenn West was the perpetrator in the Blind River murders, but it was later confirmed that he wasn't). You are right, the only similarity between the two crimes
is that they were both committed at a rest stop, and that is really a very weak link between the two cases. Also Dexter Stefonek's murder was committed in 1985 and the Blind River murders in 1991, nearly 6 years after Mr. Stefonek tragic death.

Finally, the 3D image of the perpetrator of the Blind River murders is unforgettable. In contrast there isn't any composite sketch of the murderer of Dexter Stefonek (at least no sketch was presented during the UM segment) and there were at least 2 people who had a very good look of the perpetrator. That is a very significant contrast between these 2 "similar" cases, and, since there is no sketch of the individual in the latter case, he could be, I hypothesized, the same individual depicted in the 3D image of the former. I must admit that it's a very unlikely hypothesis.

I hadn't heard that he was eliminated as a suspect. Do you know any more info about that?

In the following thread, "Birdman275" mentioned that he phoned an Ontario Provincial Police Officer, and that he confirmed that the Blind River killings perpetrator hasnīt been caught, and that he is not Ronald Glenn West:

There was a sketch of the suspect's VEHICLE, with something I've never seen in another segment, Stack's words being scrolled across the bottom in the white Sans Serif font (which in itself I found creepy). Stack then was shown again standing by the highway giving the vague description of the suspect himself. The witness didn't get a good enough look at him for a sketch to be made(he was obviously very old and probably didn't have the greatest eyesight).

Default Another Question

If the guy in the truck at the rest stop with the two jugs was the killer and a serial killer or professional killer and armed--why didn't he just kill the rest stop worker and dump him too? Wouldn't he want to kill his only eye witness to his description and placing him there at the murder scene and area?

Very strange story. I wonder if Dexter didn't have an enemy that the authorities haven't uncovered or if he had something other than gas or money that the killer wanted?

Honestly, I think the murderer is a local that folks are protecting. I know that sounds kinda out there, but I also understand the mentality of folks from the Glendive area. Those folks are incredibly loyal to each other. It would make sense if the killer were someone from the area who obviously had knowledge of the area.

But that's just me.

EDIT: LOL! I just reviewed the entire thread for this topic and saw that I expressed a similar opinion back in June of 2006. At least I'm consistent.
