Are younger males round the nation being focused by a hoop of serial killers?
A trio of retired detectives, Kevin Gannon, Anthony Duarte and Mike “Mikey” Donovan, declare that the deaths of a whole lot of males throughout the U.S., labeled as “accidental drownings,” are literally murders, the work of greater than a single killer.
“You’re speaking about virtually 300 younger males which have been drugged, kidnapped, held for a interval of time, murdered on land and deposited in physique of water to make it appear to be a drowning,” Gannon instructed Inside Edition.
They say the deaths are all linked by a single chilling clue: graffiti of a smiley face discovered close to the our bodies. The detectives have dubbed the alleged ring the “Smiley Face Killers,” they usually say it is made up of each men and women.
“We’ve been tracking [them] for 12 years now,” stated Gannon. “… This is a well-structured organized group with cells — unfold out in main cities throughout the U.S.”
The principle is specified by the riveting Oxygen docu-series “Smiley Face Killers: The Hunt for Justice.”
Stephany Welzien’s son Brian, a Navy veteran, was simply 21 when he disappeared on New Year’s Day in 2000. His stays weren’t discovered till two months later, floating in a lake in Gary, Indiana.
“He was just a kid next door that you’d want your daughter to date,” Welzien instructed Inside Edition.
“Each of our victims fit such a narrowly defined specific set of demographics,” Duarte defined.
In 2009, 24-year-old William Hurley’s loss of life was eerily just like that of Brian. He was present in the Charles River in Boston six days after he was final seen. Nearby? A smiley face.
