Last Seen in Nevada

Misty Marie Saens was age 25 when she was reported missing early March of 2003 from Las Vegas, NV. Her torso was found March 6, 2003, wrapped in black plastic bags and bed sheets, off State Route 159 near State Route 160 just west of Las Vegas, NV.

Jodi Marie Foster was age 19 when she was reported missing August 14, 2003 from Las Vegas, NV. Her torso was found August 29, 2003, wrapped in plastic and a sheet, lying on the side of a road on Interstate 15, near the off-ramp to Cima Road, about 25 miles south of the Nevada-California border.

Lindsey Marie Harris was age 21 when she was reported missing May 5, 2005 from Henderson, NV. On May 23, 2005, her legs were found in a grassy area a few hundred yards off of Interstate 55, about 15 miles south of Springfield, Ill., over 1600 miles away from her home. Her identity wasn’t confirmed until May 2008.

Jessica Louise Foster was age 21 when she was reported missing March 28, 2006 from Las Vegas, NV. There is speculation that Jessica is a victim of the same fate as Misty, Jodi and Lindsey. Her story shares all the same characteristics and circumstances as the other girls, except for her middle name. There has been no new information in Jessica’s case since 2006.

Possible Serial Killer?

There are many similarities in these cases. All were thin, caucasian, with strawberry blond hair and ranged in age from 19-26. Also, each girl stood between 5’4″ and 5’6″ and their middle names were “Marie.” All were dismembered, with parts of their bodies found wrapped in plastic and cloth, and disposed of on major highways. It would appear that these girls were being taken somewhere while they were still alive, or taken somewhere to be disposed of. Some have even suggested a truck driver serial killer, picking up girls and dumping them along their route.
