UPDATE: Connections Between Missing Women in Tristate? [Photos]

Connections?  Are there connections between the handful of women who are reported missing in the tristate?  That's the question that the experts have been asking all week.  That's the question that people like me are asking.  And that's precisely why I have spent the week pouring over the details, police reports, news accounts and Facebook feeds of the tristate women who have vanished, without a trace, over the last four years. Yesterday, I posted a blog in which I tried to connect the dots between these women.  And, apparently, I am not the only person paying to attention to those dots.  I have received many emails and messages about my article from folks and observers just as concerned, bewildered and intrigued as I am.  And some responders have provided me with additional information that adds to the storylines.  For instance, there is another missing woman who truly fits the alleged victim profile and there are details in some of the other cases that give them even stronger connections to their missing counterparts.

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.
