Make-a-List Monday: Motorcycle gangs

I recently did two Flashback Friday cases in a row where the MP associated with a motorcycle gang. So I thought I’d do a list of motorcycle gang related cases: either the person associated with a gang, or they had close relatives or good friends or a spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend who did, or gang members are thought to have caused the disappearance. Or some combination thereof.

This is not, of course, meant to imply that the MPs on this list deserved whatever their fate was.

All of these cases are pretty old. I don’t know if motorcycle gangs have gone out of style or mostly been stomped out of existence by the police and prosecutors or what. And curiously, save one, all those MPs are white.

    Hi Meaghan sorry to bug you but I think there are a few errors in Alyssa Scheneck’s “Details of Disappearance”. Might want to give it another look. Thanks again for all that you do!

      Well holy crap that was embarrassing. I can’t believe it was up for like 48 hours and no one else told me.

    I’m on a commenting roll today.

    I think for the most part, the “biker gang” image has evolved out of the seedy underworld. They’re now seen as kind of charitable organizations, with some even associated with churches. At least that’s the way it is around here.
