Make-a-List Monday: Possible Green River victims

Gary Leon Ridgway, the Green River Killer, was definitely responsible for 49 murders, but it’s likely he committed more than that. His enormous plea deal, where he pleaded guilty to 48 counts of murder (he was convicted of a 49th) was in King County, Washington. Any crimes he would have committed outside of King County did not apply, and if they were able to prove he committed other murders outside the county, he could face the death penalty.

Sensibly, Ridgway hasn’t admitted to any. But there are quite a few missing and murdered women outside of King County, but in the same general area, that seem to fit the profile of the Green River killings. I thought I’d make a list of the ones on Charley.

I’m not including the confirmed victims who are still missing. This list is probably incomplete; it’s based mostly on my own subjective judgment.
