Do not glorify the killer(s). 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc.
    3 - Please remember to not use all CAPS or capitalize the beginning letter of every single word or every other word, or use IM/text abbreviations (except like LOL). Please have respect for other readers and type words out. Not everyone is into that and it is inappropriate here. [examples: "cuzn" "tha" "dat" and so many more] Learn proper English!

Update: Bruce Mendenhall *How many more victims will there be?*

mendenhall-truck.jpgLast week, a suspected serial killer, Bruce Mendenhall, was arrested in Tennessee by police who noticed his truck matched a description of a murder suspects truck. I post twice on this so far: Bruce Mendenhall – Truck Stop Killer and *possible suspect in Tammy Zywicki murder from 1992*. Inside his truck (a semi-truck, he is a long haul type driver), apparently there is a “treasure trove” of evidence, including alot of blood splatter. Apparently Mr. Mendenhall was either not too clean, did not care if he got caught, or, just as likely, he may have just recently murdered and did not have a chance to clean up properly (I am guessing he does not watch CSI to know that not cleaning up with at least some bleach would have been a good thing). He has allegedly confessed to 6 murders of women found mainly at truck stops in 4 states. Timeline
Other states are also looking at him for several murders. And a couple of those do appear to be serious contenders for him. One I posted on previously, Tammy Zywicki appears to be one of those cases. If this is the case, Tammy may have been his first victim. The FBI wants to talk to Bruce about her murder, too. FBI probes for link between possible serial killer, Zywicki and, of course, her family wants to know too. Families of other unsolved murders are wondering too if their loved one is one of his victims, such as Jennifer Smith 1 and Jennifer Smith 2. Also, Andrea Hendrix-Steinert , who was murdered a decade ago. And so many more, I am sure.

Many people are wondering, just Who Is Bruce Mendenhall A good question. He is a 56 year old truck driver, married, with 2 adult bruce-mendenhall-mugshot.jpgdaughters. He once even Ran for Mayor! Talk about having skeletons in your closet! This time, it is for real. His neighbors are of course stunned (aren’t they always?). They say he was strange, but not mean or non-friendly. Just strange. So I figure he was not a hit at block parties, if he even went. I am guessing he was very stand-offish with neighbors, if he even said hello it would be alot for him.

So far I believe he has only been charged with the murder of Sara Nicole Hulbert, but I am sure in the next couple of weeks there will be more charges, and not just in TN. I do not know if there is any DNA evidence, but there is some kinds of “witness” evidence (to him being in the area, etc.) and of course, there is the confession. It is interesting to see that he confessed to 6 when he was only the suspect in 1 at the time.

Possible victims so far: (remember, some of these are only possible victims)

Serial Killer: David Maust

david-edward-maust.jpgKnown as “Crazy Dave” to neighborhood kids. While in the U.S. Army, apparently killed a boy in Germany. Killed another boy in Illinois, and then stabbed one in Texas. The legal system knew this guy was a psychopath who liked to kill boys — comparing him even to John Wayne Gacy — yet somehow he was released after only a few years. And, suprise, Crazy Dave gets a job at a trophy shop where he has contact with young boys, and can’t resist the delicious temptations.

Timeline

5 Apr 1954 David Edward Maust born.

9 Aug 1981 Stabs and drowns boy Donald Jones, age 15, in a quarry near Elgin IL.

17 Jan 1983 Extradition paperwork refers to Maust as a “Gacey type” (sic.)

22 Jul 1986 Date of the deposition made by detectives Behrens and Bettiker, to whom Maust confessed. Maust refused to sign a confession, and later tried to have the statements to Behrens and Bettiker suppressed from evidence, but a judge refused.

Jun 1985 Maust declared mentally unfit to stand trial.

15 Aug 1986 “[V]ery long and significant mental history with multiple suicide attempts and homicidal activities… He has a pathological preoccupation with death, mutilation, dying and other bizarre ideations. He is currently unstable and unpredictable and runs a high suicidal, homicidal risk.” Cook County psychiatrist Dr. Matthew Marcos.

30 Mar 1987 Maust declared mentally fit to stand trial.

1994 Pleads guilty to the murder of Donald Jones.

6 May 1994 Sentenced to 35 years prison, with 11 years credit for time already served.

25 Jun 1999 Paroled.
