I for one would like reassurance that John Shick acted alone. The following 4 women disappeared from near where John Shick was living: Jamie Peterson Pittsburgh, Melissa Atchley Portland, Sarah Fox Columbia U, Lynda Rowell, Northfield, Minn. Also, in Portland Oregon, a block or two from John Shick 's apt, City Reservoir 3 had to be completely empted following an emergency contamination.

frankly, I am scared that this guy had helpers who are still loose, or left easter eggs in the form of bio-weapons.

Totally agree. I wrote to both Pittsburgh newspapers asking similar questions. I live in Pittsburgh and have been checking for news updates every day. No information at all about this tragedy for over a week. We don't even know if his parents ever claimed his body.
Shick probably acted alone but was certainly violent. Those cases of missing women need further investigation regarding connections to this disturbing case.

Might add the unsolved case of Audrey Phoenix, who went missing from Portland last year and was found dead a few months later dead in Pa.

According to a reporter at the scene, he was told by police sources that they received three phone calls from people inside the building that they were being held hostage by two individuals. No way was this just one guy.
