  1. Okay cops don’t take credit where it isnt due… the police didnt find the remains a motorist who happened to be pulled over did..

  2. I sometimes wonder if there is a serial killer working in the Baltimore area. It seems like every 6 months or so someone is coming across remains in wooded areas or off roadways. All typical serial killer dump sites
