Color on a weather radar is fairly easy to interpret. Bright oranges and reds mean a strong storm is on the move. Green means light rain. But human behavior can’t be packaged so neatly. For years, law enforcement agencies developed profiles of people who commit certain types of crimes, like serial murder. These profiles defined which variables increase the likelihood that someone should be considered a suspect, including the color of their skin. Time and again, they were proven wrong. Dead wrong.

Up until now, all the victims of these unsolved cases were out and about when an unseen stalker stole them away. Aware of the threat area women were facing, Terri McAdams took precautions. She should have been safe inside her fiancé’s apartment as she baked him a surprise for Valentine’s Day. Instead, that was the night a furious monster crept in.

Two women vanished in the second half of 1983, but police had no reason to believe the cases were related. Other than seemingly minor details, no obvious similarities stood out. But when we pinpoint our prime suspect’s confirmed crimes on a map, layer the details of these cases on top and then review all the parallels to the 1984 unsolved murders, a predator’s web comes into focus.

The man we think committed this horrendous storm of destruction grew up in Fort Worth and knew the city well. He was eventually convicted of murdering three area women, but police have long theorized he killed more. His known crimes included signatures that are chillingly similar to the murders we’ve been analyzing. We’ll tell you what we know about this man and reveal a disconcerting twist in an already tragic saga.

We walk through the details of seven different men who were living in or passing through North Texas in the mid-1980s. All but one of them killed multiple women or girls. Could any of them have killed Catherine Davis, Cindy Heller, Angela Ewert or Sarah Kashka? It’s certainly possible.

Catherine Davis was the first victim whose disappearance became the focus of a new police task force. Fire engulfed her tiny apartment the night she vanished. Her abandoned car was the only clue investigators had to go on. Weeks later, Cindy Heller didn’t make it home one night after delivering a message for a stranded driver. Her car was found the next day in an apartment complex parking lot. The interior had been burned, and Cindy was missing.

Three weeks and one block. That’s what separated the disappearance of Sarah Kashka from Angela Ewert. Soon, a group of clues led some people to theorize that Sarah’s murder was tied to a dark cult. Others believed she knew the person who took her. Investigators were certain they were on the right track.

When Angela Ewert vanished after pulling over to the side of a highway late one night, police realized an ominous pattern was emerging. She was the third young woman in about 10 weeks to go missing from the same part of town and under eerily similar circumstances. As we set off on a journey to uncover how seven cold-case murders might be connected, her friends talk about the details of the night Angela disappeared, who she was and how someone set up a trap to take her. Would the clues left at the scene of her abduction help police find her or link her case to the other missing women? And how long would it be before the next woman would vanish?
