Nan, there's an ongoing case in Vancouver, British Columbia where many women disappeared over a period of years. Many of the missing women were runaways, vagrants, addicts and prostitutes; but their families tried to have an investigation and witnesses tried to have police investigate a farm (owned by the Pickton brothers) where people had seen suspicious activities including, on at least one occasion, a partially-clad woman trying to escape. Finally the police searched the farm and have found evidence that many of the missing women were disposed of there.

You know, this is getting worse and worse.

I'm reading the sporadic news reports online now that 5 young women have disappeared in 5 years in Lubbock County. Some were known prostitutes or involved in drugs. One had a 2 year old son she left behind. Three of the 5 have turned up dead. I'm not able to find out if Jo and the newest woman are in the 5, or in addition to the five.

The dead have, apparently, turned up relatively quickly on dirt roads out in the countryside. I bet law enforcement there is on serious "damage control" mode, to keep people from thinking there's a serial on the loose.

Nothing new to report on Joanna.

That is bad, Nan - I hope we can at least figure out if Joanna is one of the five or in addition to them. I'll try looking through articles to see if I can tell (not likely, though, if you couldn't tell).

Nan - I couldn't even find as much detail as you mentioned above - I did see that other women - prostitutes - had gone missing and were found along country roads (it didn't give a number or any other details).

I saw an item in google that said Joanna's picture turned up at a dating site, but when I clicked on the item it didn't take me to an article on the subject (took me to an article about the Wilkerson girl, but nothing about a date site).

Have you heard any mention of Jo's picture on a date site, Nan?

jane, Google picks up a lot of talk from the internet. I would note source and include it when mentioning something like that. Was it from a news article or an insider? Just curious how it was known.

The hotornot site is one where people can submit their pictures and users vote giving them a hot or not rating from 1 (not) to 10 (hot).

It's the kind of thing any teenager might do, I suppose - or a friend or not-friend could submit someone's picture.

There's a link where anyone can click to 'meet' the person in the picture.

Here's a link about the guys who started the site: http://www.hotornot.com/pages/about.html

That is the kind of thing where someone sees a picture in the paper and submits it. Unless date was clearly before disappearance, that is what I suspect, although with sherriff saying it I imagine they already checked that.

In any event probably a gag, whether she was involved or not. If date of submission could be determined that would shed a lot of light. Thanks for the source, jane. Much appreciated.

We're assuming it's a sick joke, as the photo used was the one put out on the flyer when she went missing. It's an enlargement of another photo that just came home from the photo store the day before she went missing. She wouldn't have had time to put it up, and she surely would have put a better one up. There are some immature folks running around in this world, as I'm sure you know, who have no taste. I saw a local Lubbock board where a couple of guys were commenting on how un-lovely she looked.

Yes, as I suspected, Nan. When it comes to sick behavior, the internet draws them like flies.

This isn't really important as to solving the case, but I want to comment on Joanna's looks - the poster picture doesn't do her justice looks-wise - you can tell from her other photos that she is pretty.

They're doing a search again tomorrow, with dogs, for both girls. Focusing on roadsides, ditches, drainpipes, stuff like that. More is at bringjohome.info.

That's good - let's hope they find something to help solve both cases.

Well, there are reports of a truck being seen in the second girl's neighborhood, that didn't belong there. They got a pretty good description of it, including it appearing to have out-of-state plates. May be nothing, may be something. Hope it's something.

As far as I know, the search turned up nothing new.
