MIAMI, Fla. —  For years skeletal remains lay hidden in the woods near an industrial park in Fort Myers, Fla.

They were discovered last March, when a surveyor inspecting the often-swampy area for potential land development thought he saw human remains sticking out of the ground.

Police were called to the scene, and within a single day they uncovered the remains of eight people believed to have ranged from 18 to 49 years old when they died.


The victims’ bodies were clustered closely together, within 1 acre of another, and were not buried, according to Fort Myers Police Detective Barry Lewis, who is leading the investigation. He said the bodies went undiscovered because they were covered over the years with falling leaves and other natural debris. "These were basically surface-type deposits," Lewis said.

Was this the work of a serial killer? Police don't know, and they have few clues to go on, other than a wooded area full of human bones. No witnesses have come forward and they have no strong suspects.

Oh no way!!!  A bunch of people just happened to wander into the same abandoned lot and die at around the same time and just fall right there on the ground. :thatsright:

It is scary to read how many serial killers the FBI believes are operating right now in the U.S.
All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
