Small Ohio town fears serial killer on the loose after 6 women disappear in one year

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio -- Six women disappear in one year. Four of their bodies recovered. Two still missing.

All six cases remain  unresolved, and that has residents and law enforcement worried that a serial killer may be on the loose in the small town of 22,000.

About a year ago, a kayaker found the body of 30-year-old Tameka Lynch in a creek just outside of town, according to the Telegraph-Forum. Her husband had reported her missing just four days earlier.

Following this discovery, authorities searched the creek for a woman who had been reported missing by her mother. According to the paper, 29-year-old Charlotte Trego left her home after being evicted by her roommate and was never seen again.

In October, 38-year-old Wanda Lemons was last seen by her mother on October 2nd. Though she would go for lengthy periods without talking to her family, she would always call or visit during the holidays. One of her friends told police she last saw Lemon on on November 3rd. There has been no sign of Lemon since then.

Next, a pregnant 20-year-old name Shasta Himelrick went missing. She was last seen Christmas night, and later spotted on a gas station security camera the following morning.

Police said her body was found in the river on January 2nd. According to the Telegraph-Forum, her death was ruled suicide by drowning, but her family says she was happy about being pregnant.

According to the paper, Timberly Claytor, 38, and Tiffany Sayre, 26, were found dead within three weeks of each other. Claytor's body was actually found by someone attending a vigil for Sayre and the other women. Both cases were classified as homicides, but no arrests have been made.

Now, the FBI is joining the investigation.

Earlier this week, authorities held a news conference saying they need answers because too many women have been going missing.
