    There was a serial killer that lived in Witchita, KS.  He admitted to 10 murders, but police know there are more.  He would find random people and make them his next 'project'.  He left clues for the police for 30 years.  For example on the 30th anniversary of his first communication with police, he left a bag of items from some of the victims along with a puzzle that had clues telling them who he was.  On June 27, 2005 he stunned everyone when he waived his right to a jury trial and confessed to 10 of the murders.(10 year anniversary of Jodi's abduction). 

  He used to tell his victims that he was on the run from police and he needed their car or food.  He would try to relax his victims, then strangle them later.  When he explained the 1991 killing, he dug a hole in advance to hide the body.  He changed his MO as he got older and hid the bodies.  Kansas reinstated the death penalty in 1994, so if they can prove any murders occurred after that he could be put to death.  He liked younger women and had pictures of models like Meg Ryan in his home.

  I know Witchita is about 500 miles south of Mason City, but a pretty easy drive up I-35.  I wonder if their were cheap flights from Northwest that went from Witchita to Mason City?  Is it possible Jodi stayed over night in Witchita when she was a flight attendant?  Is there any chance the serial killer was in Mason City for an Air Force event or something?  If it hasn't already been done, might be a good idea to confirm he wasn't there and that he did not have a flight to Mason City that weekend.

  When he got older he said he was looking for victims that did not have a man around.  He was worried he wouldn't have the strength to overpower them and was looking for smaller or older women.  Police think there was not much activity from him for years; probably because he was busy raising his 2 children.  His youngest turned 17 in 1995.  He may have been worried his wife or children would find out.  Many people wonder if he stopped killing after 1991.  He did have a new job with the city where he traveled a lot more.  When he left packages for the police in 2004, his white van was on security tapes.  He used to troll around and collect information on the victim that he selected.  He had a black Jeep Cherokee.  If he drove all the way from Wichita, that would explain why he was willing to wait that morning, even if she was late for work.  In his fantasies, he believed his victims would serve him in the afterlife.  Is there any chance the palm print matches him?  Could any family or friend recognize a picture of him from 1995?  Could it be possible he was in the area for something?  Could he have been on the same cruise with Jodi the year before?
