Possible Connections Between Missing Women in Tristate [Photos]

Women are missing.  Rumors are flying.  And people in the tristate, particularly women, are scared.  When Kristy Kelley of Boonville was reported missing Friday, August 15th, it seemed, at first, an isolated incident.  However, as more and more reports surface we are now becoming aware that there are several women missing from Southern Indiana, Western Kentucky and Southern Illinois and it seems, just maybe, there are common threads between them.  Is it possible that the tristate is home to some sort of serial abductor?  Do these women truly share common traits and were they chosen targets of some thief in the night?  I have spent the last couple of nights combing through police reports, news accounts and Facebook sites dedicated to each woman and I have found what I consider to be some disturbing similarities.

Major New Ride Announcement Tonight at Holiday World

I cannot wait!  8:30pm CST tonight, Holiday World is set to make a MAJOR new ride announcement.  And they have been teasing us and dropping hints about it for months with their ingenious and clever website 66 Days at Sea. For the last 60-something days, the amusement park has been slowly giving clues and tonight the folks that have made educated guesses and wild stabs in the dark will learn if they were right, wrong, or close.  While we don't know exactly what the park is going to announce, there are a couple of things we are sure of.

Mystery Surrounds Major Announcement at Holiday World [Video]

The truth is out there.  Somewhere.  And just about every coaster enthusiast and amusement park buff has a theory about what Holiday World's big announcement is going to be.  Yep!  In May, the park launched a brand new website called 66 Days at Sea and that website serves as a countdown to Thursday, July 24th, when officials at Holiday World are set to make a MAJOR announcement.  But, so far, they are only giving extremely vague hints as to what that announcement may be.  But check out this video.  Two Indiana teenagers named Jordan and Alec have poured over every detail of every single clue and they think they're onto something.
