I wrote earlier about how Larry DeWayne Hall had confessed to the kidnap/murder of Laurie Depies. I thought his name sounded familiar, so I looked him up and found out he’d also confessed to kidnapping and killing Tricia Reitler. And I found this site, which links Hall to quite a few cases from Charley:
Aundria Michelle Bowman, 14, Michigan, 1989
Diana Jane Braungardt, 18, Missouri, 1987
Cynthia Louise Carmack, 16, Ohio, 1988
Debra Jean Cole, 12, Indiana, 1981
Janet Rose Dolgae, 28, Ohio, 1989
Shaylene Marie Farrell, 18, Ohio, 1994
Wendy Louise Felton, 16, Indiana, 1987
Julie Dalton Johnson, 29, Indiana, 1991
Tracy Marie Kroh, 17, Pennsylvania, 1989
Penny Dawn Lease, 23, Illinois, 1989
Donda Renae Martino, 32, Tennessee, 1994
Stacy Kathleen McCall, 18, Suzanne Streeter, 19, and Sherrill Levitt, 47, Missouri, 1991 (disappeared together)
Dean Marie Pyle Peters, 14, Michigan, 1981
Denise Diane Plfum, 18, Indiana, 1986
Kimberly Ann Thompson, 25, Illinois, 1986
Laura Lynn Thompson, 15, Pennsylvania, 1993
Paulette Webster, 19, Illinois, 1988
This looks to be pure supposition, though. I highly doubt Hall did all, or even most, of these cases. To begin with, two completely unrelated suspects have been charged in Laura Thompson’s presumed murder. And the prime suspect in Debra Cole’s case is her mother’s now-deceased boyfriend, who definitely raped and killed Debra’s sister later on.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Hall was responsible for a few on the list, though. He definitely is a sexual predator and a very dangerous man, and I bet the police have only scratched the proverbial iceberg when it comes to uncovering his crimes.
The site mentions a book. The local library has it. I’ll have to read it, if only to see if it has any additional information on some of those above-mentioned disappearances, many of which I don’t have much on.
