Check the pond- or any other nearby water. When will the FBI acknowledge there's a serial killer in the upper midwest?

If all these cases aren't related, then why are young males the only ones wandering into the water? You can't tell me that there aren't enough drunk females or older adults for any of them to wander in the water if all these young males are wandering into water. The most obvious answer is that drunks are smart enough not to drown themselves, and somebody is murdering the young males.

I think this isn't happening to women because they tend to travel in pairs (or more) for safety reasons on college campuses.

There are several current disappearances like this. Remember Brian Shaffer? How about Maura Murray, Michael Negrete, Josh Guimond, or Justin Gains? They all disappeared and are still missing.

There are quite a few from here in Minnesota, as well as U of Wi-Madison.

Did anyone see a van near the building he left? If so, this would explain why no one saw him walking that night.

It does happen to women.

The complaint is that when young attractive white women go missing the media has a frenzy.

I have Google Alerts for missing students and student disappearances. Women make up at least half of the reports.

They don't all make the national news.
