    FBI database links long-haul truckers, serial killings
    [​IMG]
    Red dots on the map above supplied by the FBI mark the locations of hundreds of bodies
    and human remains discovered along highways over the past three decades.

    The FBI suspects that serial killers working as long-haul truckers are responsible for the slayings of hundreds of prostitutes, hitchhikers and stranded motorists whose bodies have been dumped near highways over the last three decades.
    Federal authorities first made the connection about five years ago while helping police link a trucker to a string of unsolved killings along Interstate 40 in Oklahoma and several other states. After that, the FBI launched the Highway Serial Killings Initiative to track suspicious slayings and suspect truckers.
    A computer database maintained by the FBI has grown to include information on more than 500 female crime victims, most of whom were killed and their bodies discarded at truck stops, motels and other locations along popular trucking routes crisscrossing the U.S. The database also has information on scores of truckers who've been charged with killings or rapes committed near highways or who are suspects in such crimes, officials said. Authorities said they do not have statistics on whether driving trucks ranks high on the list of occupations of known serial killers.
    But the pattern in roadside body dumps and other evidence has prompted many investigators to speculate that the mobility, lack of supervision and access to potential victims that come with the job make it a good cover for someone inclined to kill. "You've got a mobile crime scene," one investigator said. "You can pick a girl up on the East Coast, kill her two states away and then dump her three states after that."
    Although some local police agencies have been briefed on the program, the FBI had not publicized its existence outside law enforcement until earlier this year, when officials agreed to show The Times the inner workings of the operation and share details of some of their cases. Housed in a nondescript brick building on the outskirts of Washington, D.C., FBI analysts pore over reports and computer entries looking for patterns in slayings from California to Connecticut. Since the program began, more than two dozen killings have been solved, authorities said...

    bother oldsoul....i have been thinking about this for the last couple of years...
    they have to perfect means to get away with the crime every time...
    these predators should have never received a cdl license....smh
    i believe the atlanta child murders were committed by kkk members and these mofo's
    because the murders and disappearances continued after they locked that brother up....

    one love

    So Very Disturbing

    These are not the majority of people in prisons though. Serial killers are a minority amongst the criminal population. The majority of homicides are between people who are familiar with one another, family, friends, co-workers, etc...

    It would make good sense though to regulate this industry a lot tighter since it obviously leaves a lot of room for predators.

    In the land of the free, they still need to lock up the animals. Which I noticed came in all colors but there seems to be a gender bias. Interesting. There had to be some bad *** b*tches since Lizzy Borden.
