Neal Falls (l.), a 45-year-old suspected serial killer, worked as a security guard at the Hoover Dam, according to authorities. He was gunned down by Heather (r.), a West Virginia prostitute who he tried to strangle, on July 18. CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Serial killer, Neal falls, who was shot to death July 18 in Charleston appears to have come in contact with more than a dozen police agencies during the last 20 years. Charleston police tell WKYT that Louisville police stopped Falls on July 11, 2006 and October 21, 2013. They did not know the nature of the stops but say most of Falls' stops included something of a suspicious nature. Lexington police spokeswoman Sgt. Ann Welch told WKYT they are aware of Falls and as information becomes available, "we will review any open cases that we may have if there is any possibility that he was in the area surrounding the time frame of our cases." Charleston Police tell WSAZ that Neal Falls, 45, came in contact with police in 16 states for different reasons.
Police say in some of these states, Falls was stopped for different traffic-related offenses. In others, it appears that he had been checked out by law enforcement for possible "suspicious activity."
CBS NEWS...Police in West Virginia discovered axes, machetes, bleach and more in Falls’ car. The lieutenant in charge of the West Virginia investigation says Falls probably has a history of committing crimes. “If he's really committed as many offenses, as many killings as we think he has, then, yes, it's amazing he was able to do that, and he must have worked pretty hard to avoid detection,” said forensic psychologist Mark Chambers. “He's probably a guy that's relatively intelligent, and so he knows enough to do what he needs to do to stay off the radar.”Ted Bundy was a notorious serial killer and rapist in the 1970's who could have murdered as many as 100 young white females with long brown hair, that was his target. Ted Bundy killed young women from seven states Washington, Utah, Colorado, Oregon, Idaho, California and Florida. Ted Bundy killed women in Oregon, did Ted Bundy's exploits influence Neal Falls as he grew up in Oregon. Neal Falls appears to have copycatted Ted Bundy's murderous ways across the USA.

The latest face on his wall belongs to Brookelyn Farthing, who was 18 years old when she disappeared. She's been missing since June of last year from Madison County. Kentucky State Police are investigating her disappearance. They say they've investigated every scenario they can and don't believe her case is connected to any others.
Alana Gwinner from Fairfield OH was kidnapped and murdered on December 10th, 1997, her body was found near Sugar Bay in Warsaw KY, 65 miles away.

"I'm looking at 17 different girls who all look exactly alike, and every individual area, whether it's state police or local police, they all say the same thing, it's not connected to the others," Bill Warner said. "Maybe this needs national attention that all these young girls who look like they're all sisters have all just totally vanished without any kind of leads." Bill Warner says he hopes those leads come and that they bring answers to more than a dozen families.
