Texas Chainsaw Career Path


The LA Times helpfully informs us that, if you're a serial killer, becoming a trucker is a great career opportunity for you:
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 past 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 I-40 in Oklahoma and several other states. After that, the FBI launched the Highway Serial Killings Initiative, or HSK, to track slayings and suspect truckers.

the pattern in roadside body dumps and other evidence have 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."
Awesome, LA Times, thanks for the tips. I'm so fucking tired of finding new spots in my backyard to bury things. On the other hand my roses are looking magnificent this year. Must be that new mulch I'm using.
