    Don't tell me that killer of pros is at it again, you know if i was one after seeing all theses women who dissappeared and were found dead, i would be changing profession and quick think of how many of them were with this person and were able to walk away

    Sounds like everyone is gun shy when a female with a history of drugs and prostitution goes missing in Rocky Mount. She's probably just sleeping over or taking a trip with someone.

    When Rocky Mount came up with their slogan "City on the rise", they were actually referring to the crime rate.
