    Sobering Seattle Times link about serial killer Isreal Keyes. He liked to hang out in remote trailheads and campgrounds looking for potential victims. The FBI report cited in the article said he spent lots of time on the Olympic peninsula and traced him to the Hoko River. Not everyone on the Hoko during the last 10 years was interested in fly fishing.

    This is why you should never leave home without your pet lion or bear.

    Both Bundy and the I-5 killer took victims from Corvallis. Serial killers like this place.

    Kinda makes you not wanna going out hiking anywhere.. I always thought about those kind of things when I hike out. Feels like there is someone waiting in the woods watching and just waiting for the right person to walk by.. :eek:

    I carry bear spray while hiking and always assumed I would end up using it on a crazy human before a bear…

    Well that is kinda like bringing a knife to a gun fight. Last thing I woudl wanna do to someone who spent months planning on how to kidnap and kill me is to spray him with bear spray assuming he probably has a gun..

    Screw the pepper spray....take the Ruger! Stuff like this slowly changes the opinions of many. I never carry a gun but now I'm thinking there is more to fear then bears, cougars, and killer rabbits!:eek:

    Creepiest part is that he reportedly killed someone in Neah Bay and they suspect he dumped the body in Lake Crescent. No, I'm not joking.

    a bit freaky since i lived out there at the time. one thing i am struck by in all the stories in the port angeles papers is that besides the two killings they nailed him for, his admitted killings here happened to be people whose relatives never called in missing persons reports and/or never told their relatives they were visiting the olympic peninsula.

    weird story that seems to have some serious holes in it. just hard to believe five murders in the neah bay /olympic peninsula area and no missing person reports at all. dude could pick his victims, or wanted to be seen as more than he was.

    Well I don't think there was any way for him or anyone could know that not one friend or family member was going to file a missing person report. Never know if they would or not until someone goes missing, unless you ask everyone you know if they would or not if you went missing.
    I bet almost every missing person cases are victims to this type of thing. Who really just leaves the house one day and never comes back? People usually know if someone is going to leave or move away, they don't just leave the house and disappear forever. We only hear about this stuff when someone get caught or a body is found. Think of all the victims you haven't heard about. It's like when someone leaves their kid in the car to go into the store for just a quick second, the car gets stolen or the kid get taken, or when your kid wonders off for a minute and ends of missing forever.. It's like there is always someone standing around waiting for these moments of opportunity to happen..
