Sad story from Vermont tonight. A young mother, Melissa Jenkins, was apparently abducted from the side of the road in St. Johnsbury, VT, yesterday. Her body was reportedly discovered this evening in nearby Barnet, about 20 miles from where Maura Murray was last seen. This case also brings to mind the strange case of Brianna Maitland, who vanished from Montgomery, VT, a month after Maura's disappearance. In each of these cases, the young woman's vehicle was later found abandoned beside the road.
The corridor of roads along I-91 was also the hunting grounds of a prolific serial killer in the early 1980's, who was never captured.
It's tempting to blame one man for all these tragedies, and there are certain commonalities in these crimes. Has a serial killer "reactivated" or are each of these tragedies a sad story of their own?
