11. “The I-70 Killer” – Still At Large
Dark Minds did an episode of this unknown killer, who is believed to have committed murders in multiple states, including Kansas. He killed six different store clerks in 1992, and has yet to be found. Five of the victims were young brunette women, and one was a brunet male who, unfortunately, wore a ponytail and may have been mistaken for a woman. However, he’s also a suspect in three more shootings, (two dead, one survived) in Texas. Unless he’s died since then, he still runs free to this day.
