MP of the week: Clay Rodman

This week’s featured missing person is Clay Allen Rodman, a 32-year-old man who disappeared from Abilene, Texas on May 1, 2013. He was homeless and had been staying in a Salvation Army shelter. The day of his disappearance, he was arrested for public intoxication, then released pending a court date.

Investigators think he probably died around the time of his disappearance, probably because he would have resurfaced otherwise. I have to wonder if he’s listed as a John Doe somewhere. If still alive, Rodman would be 40 today.

I hope everyone is okay. I love you all.

        We are all trying to make the best of things, but it does get one down in the dumps. Life where I am is pleasant enough, but I sure miss interactions with other people. I’d probably fare better if I didn’t listen to the news.

        My home life with my husband and our pets is very happy. But the outside world seems increasingly menacing.

        I know what you mean Susan, I love being alone I work part time do to Covid so I get some social interaction with my boss and office mate and of course my highlight is talking to the clerks at the Grocery Store now. I have 5 pets so they keep me on my toes. Christie from Seattle, WA. xo

    I would think that if he died, he would have been found by now. He was homeless, so his opportunity to travel somewhere else would be limited I would hope.

    It reminds of an incident, where a young man got drunk at a county fair. The local police attempted to drive him home. They could not figure out where he lived and basically dumped him in the middle of nowhere.

    He disappeared and most likely died. His brother was distraught and committed suicide. What was the problem, of taking him to a local hospital and let him sober up under observation of sorts.

    Plus, if arrested, he most likely would have been fingerprinted. So, his prints would be on file. I know mine are, after being in the military and working for the government.

    The only problem is I don’t remember my FBI number connected to my fingerprints.

      This is so horrible!!!! Was anyone in local police held responsible? All of them should lose their jobs and go on trial for criminal negligence

    I would not think so. But, there should have been something done.

    As an aside, last night while doing some research, I came across an interesting website. It’s called “Sex Industry Kills”. They list names, ages, and circumstances of their murder

    It breaks down the murder of sex workers, prostitutes or whatever term you want to use, by country.

    I went through the list in the U.S. which goes back to at least the mid 1970’s. One of the interesting parts is the names of some of the serial killer offenders in many of these cases.

    I came across cases connected to Samuel Little, Green River Killer, but other serial killers who I never heard of.

    I came across Cases connected to William Lester Suff, better known as “Lake Elsinore Kiler or Riverside Ripper. Charles Frederick Albright. He was also known as the Eyebsll Killer or Dallas Ripper. Robert Lee Yates, in Spokane, Washington.

    Also, a guy who killed several sex workers in Gary, Indiana. It was until that he killed one in Hammond, Indiana, and they put it together. Gary Police had received a letter from a runs the Murder Accountability Project, about a possible serial killer, which they ignored.

    He dumped many of his victims in abandoned homes.
    We need to develop a protocol for various communities between law enforcement and other agencies, to monitor these places.

      Patrick, can you provide a link? All I could find was a German-language site and I can’t speak a word of German.

    Is the website still being updated? I just donated but then looked at missing people from 2020 and there are only about 5 in January and then it stops..
