Between April 8 and May 7, 1992, six people were shot and killed along a stretch of I-70. The deaths occurred between Terre Haute, Indiana, and Wichita, Kansas.
Five were women (and police believe the sixth was mistaken for a woman due to his long ponytail). They were all brunettes and employees at stores just off the highway.
In late 2021, a new age-progressed sketch of the killer was released. Spring of 2022 marked the 30-year anniversary of the murders, and the case is still open to this day.

Ultimately, 11 women and one unborn child were found and identified. Their life stories were varied: While many had connections to the drug and sex trade, others did not.
Although hundreds were interviewed and investigated, the ID of the killer remains a mystery. The investigation is ongoing, with a $100,000 reward being offered for information.
Between ‘01 - ‘17, at least 75 women have been killed in Chicago via suffocation or strangulation. In ‘19, the police finally designated a task force to investigate.
For years, Chicago police have claimed that there is little concrete evidence linking the victims. However, others had seen a very large link: Most of the victims were Black women.
Three men were killed in sub-districts of Bangladesh; each one was — at least — shot in the head and dumped with a note tied around their neck signed “Hercules.”
The gist of the messages was they’d been accused of rape and killed for it. Law enforcement is investigating, but they have no idea if it’s one killer or a group of vigilantes.
