The Ft. Myers Serial Killer

Almost one year ago, near the end of spring training, there was a bit of a stir when eight skeletons were discovered in a wooded area of Ft. Myers. They had apparently been there for many years. Police were unsure whether the remains had eroded out of an old cemetery, had been dumped by an unscrupulous crematorium, or were the work of an undetected serial killer.

Well, CNN has an update today. It's looking like the "serial killer" answer is correct. All eight men were murdered. Two of them have been identified, through the cumbersome method of having dozens of people who had missing relatives give DNA for comparison. Both men disappeared in the mid-90s, and lived lives on the edges of society.

An artist has done forensic reconstructions of each of the victims, in hopes of identifying them.

Probably not the kind of news Ft. Myers wanted, just before the spring training/spring break vacation season...
