Please ignore typos I make on the page now and then folks and mispellings. I have a lot to type many times and do so very fast, and I really don’t have much time or use for the proof reading. It’s a blog, not a dictionary, even though I apologize in advance…..Yes, serial killers, /sigh. Unfortunately, this is my area of expertise. Ok, here we go.
The crime statistics at the time that the Springfield Three went missing stated that there was only a less than 10 percent chance that this was a random act of violence due to the fact that more than one family member was taken or killed. There was only around a 6 percent chance at that time, that if it was a random act of violence, that the act was perpetrated by an actual serial killer.
That said, at that time, most places did not have the unusually high number of serial killers actively working in them as this one did. Nor were they the Serial Killer Central that Springfield tends to be, considering its extreme number of caves, cisterns, caverns, and sinks (It IS the Cave State), close proximity to the Mark Twain National Forests, and rural areas which still may have never seen a human foot step upon them.
Near Kansas City, the actual crossroads of the United States, a hub which connects the east to the west through easy cross-country makes travel through much still undeveloped lands convieneient, by two major interstate systems, I-44 and I-70, both. It offers not just one excellent viable major escape route via long and windy, rural, and secluded roads, but two, and likely makes this area the number one most desirable area for a serial killer, or in this case, several serial killers to hunt in the whole country. And they do. Let the discussion begin.
