Bell was arrested in Louisiana in the early seventies that's the only connection I see.
He was incarcerated in 1998 Ellis Unit Huntsville Tx.

Sorry, you misunderstood. I meant there are at least 4 girls who vanished from Louisiana, three of them at least, turned up dead in Texas. I just meant there seems to be a connection between those four cases, and also I have personally tied them to the 4 deaths in League City (where Jane and Janet Doe were found) It has to be someone with ties to Louisiana as well as Texas.

The reason why I wanted the exact date Bell was arrested, was so he could be eliminated of having committed crimes after that date. Do you know what he was ultimately arrested for. I'm of the understanding it was a case not connected to these girls.

Sorry if I was confusing.

Do not know how to respond to this man. His ego is great. Has anyone looked at this fellow..... his behaviour... really looked at him????? Anonymity and mobility ????

I agree with Wingo, assuming he is talking about Sam, Sam has already confessed on here whether he likes that or not. Sam knows too many things about too many killings in too many places. With his position as Texas Investigator and civilian army investigator who knows where he might be at any time. Some of us are cops who read this stuff for fun and it is offensive to see a proclaimed cop speak as he does, maybe he is divulging confidential matters, course I know who Sam really is and know his credentials and lack thereof. He who boasts and tells of matters supposedly held in confidence says not much to the character of the man, just to huis ego and need to be the center of attention, posting under other names arguing with himself , giving himself a "challenge", yep Sam has left his signature on the world talking as he does, boasting as he does, betraying those he "worked" for. Right Glenn. I think if he belittles Pat Bittner and those other officers in Galveston County I believe I might be compelled to expose him.

Kandy I'm familiar with a few of those cases in Shreveport and I see NO connection.
One girl was in a night club and was seen leaving with a man.
Her remains were found in an old abandoned house in East Texas near Marshall If my memory is correct.
I think the case is still unsolved.

Please feel free to report me to the police little jealouse boys and girls.
My hobby is assessing murder cases and if you don't like it tuff.
Who is Pat Bittner?

Detective Alfred Paige Galveston PD CID is the investigator over most of these cases.
He's worked very hard on these cases and is a very dedicated man.
Breck Porter editor of Galveston Police News has wrote several good short stories on the I-45 killer.
The name Pat Bittner sounds familiar but I can't place her.
She may have been with the League City Police Dept who has jurisdiction over the killing field cases.
I don't know anything about Pat and certainly don't remember bad mouthing her.
I may have read her opinion on the I-45 killer and disagreed with her.
I will say this many mistakes were made on the killing field cases.
Most mistakes were made by the Harris County Medical Examiners Office.
Now I'm not on here to argue with people and if that's going to be the case I'll stop posting.

Kandy Bell was arrested for murder in 1978 after he exposed himself to little girls. A man ran out to stop him from exposing himself to the little girls and Bell shot him 5 times.
After Bell was arrested he made bond and skipped town.
For 20 years he was on the run and we don't know where he was are what he was doing for most of those 20 years.
He was re-arrested I think in Panama by the FBI in 1998.
I think he's up for parole in the next few years.

Sam, I don't know what all the ruckus is on here. I'm telling you there has been a connection made, it just isn't public yet.

I also think this killer, yet unknown was using these I-45 killings as an excuse, sort of a scapegoat to commit his own,making it look as though it may be Ed Bell or Shore who had committed them. I think there is still yet one more killer out there.

#54 Jun 1, 2007
Sam, If Ed Bell took off, it's highly unlikely he hung around the area committing crimes.

There has been a connection to all of the Louisiana cases made, it just isn't public knowledge yet.

Pat Bittner is the League City officer you vilified on May the 15th a few posts back, you agreed with the sick author of the letter that was sent to Tim Miller.Go back to your post and you will see that you did agree with the sick individual who further victimized Mr Tim Miller. And I add the letter writer is a very sick and cowardly individual but the identity is being sought and there are some very good leads.

Although knowing this to begin with I pulled the articles on the autopsies regarding the killing fields and found that League City is in Galveston County outside the jusrisdction of Harris County. I further learned that the autopsies of those girls were performed by Dr William Korndorffer of the Galveston County Medical Examiners Office.

The slam to Harris County was a premature reaction to something. Actually calling for an apology to those folks.

Cannot help but react to some things said, if the readers of this site are to be made properly aware of the actual facts and settings, the information needs to be factual. No matter general, they should be factual. No one should be releasing information under investigation.

I have no problem placing my real name on here, I have been primary investigator on many of these cases named and I will say this.

Detective Paige is a fine officer, he merits praise even if not successful as he continues to try and bring the matters to resolve and he seeks no public recognition for it. Detective Paige is a good man if nothing else but for what he does for a living and he puts forth great effort to be successful.

Pat Bittner , the same, dedicated police officer, good man, good mind.

Breck Porter comes from a great lineage of blue with his father being the longest termed Lt in HPD homicide history, He does a hell of a job with that very informative paper.

The criminal psychological profiles that keep being turned out are generic, off the shelf canned verbage. The profiles offered will never put anyone in jail but by their generalities, things can only be done in so many ways by a human being, any person who is ever arrested will fit the profiles + or -. Therefore the author of the general profiles will always be right, after someone is arrested. After the real police work has been done by real police officers.

Detectives Paige and Bittner(and others) are the ones seeking the killer, doing the actual blood and guts work. Controversial, successful or what, they are trying and using the prevailing methodology available and quite a lot of innovative techniques as well that they themselves have developed on their own.

I worked a few, Sam has named them in his list herein. I was not that successful either, I have been very lucky in my career and solved a few homicides but these are different, they were not of this typology, the serial killer, got one once but it was luck, he killed 14.

My name is Matt Wingo. I am a 35 year lawman in Texas. I have been where Bittner and Paige have been and it is no fun. But I assure this group that there are no harder workers and thinkers than those men saddled wth the responsibility of clearing a serial murder case.

They cannot and should not share the secrets of the cases reserving the secrets to aid in the identification of the actual killer(s)

Monday morning quarterbacking is not acceptible, if you were not there. Law Enforcement does not post on these blogs and rightfully so, I dont either till now, there is much that is proprietary to the agency only, for good and sound reason.

We now have seen error made in what actually has been said and done and where as well.

I still urge out of pure decency that apology be made to the Harris County Medical Examiner. And that Pat Bittner be disenjoined from collaboration with the sick letter writer.

I thought the Username looked familiar. I read Crime Library too. Is this post by you on CL? NOTE: THE MESSAGE BOARD ON CL IS NOT RELATED TO THIS TOPIC. I JUST HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CONTENTS OF THE POST.

Questions are at the bottom of the post.

(IMO) I am an investigator!(IMO) I have been investigating this case since December.(IMO) I have not posted on this board before, but I have been reading it religiously since January. Yesterday, I spoke with another interested party who has been investigating the case from day 1.

That there is considerable evidence, eye-witness accounts, forensic evidence that points strongly to other person(s).

recently, I was involved in resuscitating a young woman, who had a blunt force trauma to the head, cause unknown; I came upon her lifeless body, and immediately got on my knees, checked her for pulse, and respiration and determined she was not breathing and had no heartbeat. Knowing she could have had spinal injury, and not knowing what had happened to her, I had no choice but to handle her, clear her air passage and administer CPR. This continued for ten minutes. During this time, not once did it cross my mind that I was messing with the evidence, of any crime that may have occurred before my arrival. I was focused solely upon the task of saving a life. Which I did. She is recovering as we type.(IMO) Had she died, stayed dead, remained dead, not recovered, there is little doubt in my mind, that you people would be discussing my tampering with the evidence to cover up the fact that I had killed her.

Oh, and yes, there were bloody fingerprints all over the house.(IMO) Whatever evidence of a crime was there, was completely muddled by my thoughtless life saving activities. I had no way of knowing at the time how long she had been there, whether she could be resuscitated, but I had little choice but to do everything I knew might save this life.

(IMO)) It is obvious he did not have my experience in dealing with trauma victims.(IMO) I likely would have recognized soon after handling Nonaís body that it was too late to save her life.


I would like the readers and members to express their views on investigators placing their comments here. Thanks. Oh, and Iím still finding bloody fingerprints around the house; I canít tell you what I touched.(IMO).

(IMO) Valley Girl, how many times you walked in on a good friend in a pool of blood? Did you go for saving the life, or preserving the evidence?
(IMO) FDinLaw, how many times have you rescusitated a blood covered trauma victim without tainting the evidence? Is everyone on this board saying they walk in on a friend, lying in a pool of blood, going to think only about tainting the evidence?
(IMO) Ben
What agency do you work for? Can you share how you came across the lifeless body of the woman that had blunt force trauma? Were you responding to a crime in progress? Was she in her own residence? How long did it take for back up to get there? Do you normally secure the scene first in that case or tend to the victim? Any suspects? How is the investigation of her case coming along? I assume it was an assault of some kind.

There must be an article or newsclip you can refer us to. You deserve kudos for your heroics.
