    NEW VIDEO: Possible serial killer, Neal Falls, pulled over 11 days before being shot dead by potential victim


    Eleven days before a Charleston escort shot and killed Neal Falls in self-defense, he was pulled over just outside of Dallas, Texas.

    Detectives said Falls is now linked to at least ten other murders, dismemberment and/or missing women across the country.

    13 News requested the body camera video from the police officer who pulled Falls over and received the video on August 1.

    Firstly...LE needs to learn how to aim those cameras at the subjects.
    Fran...do we need to enact laws where LE is required to open every trunk no matter what??
    I know people would flip out about our privacy rights...but c'mon....how many women might have been saved here?
    I realize the slippery slope this becomes...but LE can't do their jobs anymore.

    I don't think they have to search everyone. But IMHO, when he said he had NO ADDRESS, well, IF I was LE I might get a little suspicious.
    Oh, and yeah, that camera was good for nothing. At least IMHO.

    Missing woman’s family holds out hope she wasn’t one of Neal Falls’ escorts

    The last time Glendene Grant saw her daughter Jessica Foster, Foster was leaving Kamloops, British Columbia, for Las Vegas. It was Christmas Day 2005.

    Foster is one of four women in the Las Vegas area whose disappearances police have connected to Neal Falls, an Oregon man killed last month in Charleston, W. Va., after he tried to choke an escort he met online, police say. Falls now is being investigated in connection with the deaths and disappearances of sex workers in at least nine states. Authorities say he was a serial killer.

    All four women missing in the Las Vegas Valley, including Foster, worked as prostitutes, according to police.


    Article also mentions (possible) connections to:
    Lindsay Harris, 21, disappeared in May 2005 - Found deceased
    Misty Saens, 25 - Parts of her body found in 2003
    Jodi Brewer, 19, disappeared in August 2003 - Found deceased

    BTW, Lori Blalock would NOT be one of Falls' victims. She was killed by her husband and is believed to be lost in the river. Her husband has been tried and convicted of her murder.

    NamUs lists 45 women age 15+ missing from Oregon since 2000. Kimster's list has a few more than that but I see some family abductions that we could probably rule out. Kimster, any on your list stick out in your mind? Links to prostitution or anything?

    Murders should be looked at too probably. Of the 4 potential linked cases in Nevada, only 1 is still missing.
  13. Kimster

    Kimster Director Staff Member

    No, I've been randomly looking at the list, but haven't yet analyzed it. Staff, go ahead and make notes via edit as we create rule outs. I'll start with two.

    Has anyone seen specifically when Neal was known to be in Oregon, for sure? Obviously if he's been on the other side of the country for several years we can rule out more.

    I've been trying to figure that out myself. :waitasec: I wonder if any local media knows?

    Don't forget that Oregon also had Patrick Courtney off and on during some of those years and before. He's the guy who murdered Brook Wilberger in Corvallis. I've always been sure there had to be more for Patrick. He only got caught for Brook after he was caught abducting that coed in New Mexico. He was arrested previously too much to have not had more victims than he was charged with. He was suspected in several states including Washington, Oregon, California and I know Texas and probably more.

    Good grief! These two could have been friends. {blahhhh}


    FBI's alert on Joel Patrick Courtney

    We know he lived in Las Vegas for 8 years, at least encompassing 2003-2005.
    I think he was in Oregon *before* that, but I'm not sure. I've been scouring articles but nobody is being specific.

    And then I found this: http://www.wsaz.com/home/headlines/Charleston-Police-Investigating-Homicide-316990611.html (BBM is the ones included in the map above) Illinois, Ohio, and New York are highlighted above but not on the list below...

    Charleston Police tell WSAZ that Neal Falls, 45, came in contact with police in 16 states for different reasons.

    The list spans from coast to coast including:
    New Mexico
    West Virginia

    I believe he was in Henderson, NV from 2000 to 2008.

    His car he was driving when stopped in Texas just before he was killed was registered in Oregon. I believe either Spingfield or Eugene. His mom died in January which was when he told his sister that everyone he cared about is gone. He then deleted all his social media stuff and for the last 7 months he was traveling and his family had not been able to contact him.

    I'm looking around to see if I can find a time line somewhere. But I may have to do it later.

    Yes, he lived in Springfield, according to the local news broadcasts. For those who are unfamiliar with this area, Eugene and Springfield share a border.

    Someone earlier posted something about the trunk...I don't think anyone should have to prove their innocence at a traffic stop - I do think the police need to take the disappearance and deaths of women involved in prostitution more seriously. They aren't throw away because of what they do! (They may be naive, they may even be willfully ignorant, or forced...but they are not disposable.)
