SUSPECTED SERIAL KILLER NEAL FALLS – DID HE KILL IN CALIFORNIA?
CHARLESTON, West Virginia- July 18, 2015. Neal M. Falls, suspected serial killer, shot dead with his own gun by escort in West Virginia.
BACKPAGE.COM- Heather Saul, 30 year-old escort, advertises her services on a dangerous prostitution website called “BackPage.com”.
On the Saturday in question, Neal Falls simply responded to the ad.
“Sexy, red-headed sweetheart”, the ad said…A serial killer’s dream.
NEAL FALLS KILLED BY ESCORT- It was a summer afternoon, 3 p.m. Heather opened her door to an average looking, 45 year-old, white male. Upon seeing that no one else was in her apartment, he jammed a gun into her side.
“Live or die”?, Falls demanded.
He started violently strangling her. Heather noticed a small rake in the kitchen (a pet poop scoop) and grabbed it to fight him off. Fortunately, he put his gun down to regain control of her. At that moment, she seized the loaded gun and shot behind herself, over her shoulder. Heather revealed later that she could hear the sound of “fluids” hitting the floor as he slumped and slowly fell.
Neal Falls was shot in the head and killed instantly.
MURDER SUSPECT’S VEHICLE– Police were called to the scene. Parked outside Heather’s residence, an innocent looking gold Subaru-type SUV with Oregon plates. Inside it was found the most grim set of tools. Investigators located a “kill kit” under the wagon’s back hatch. A mess of hatchets, knives, shovels and handcuffs strewn about unapologetically. Bleach, garbage bags, the list is long. The driver of this car appears to have been a lifetime predator. One can only hope the SUV’s filthy interior will yield DNA samples to solve his horrific crimes.
NEAL FALLS- Authorities suspect the dead killer has likely murdered and dismembered women from coast to coast, as far back as the year 2000.
Body parts in plastic bags, hundreds of miles apart. Often near an interstate highway.
Missing girls and women. Some of them in pieces.
FBI MULTI- STATE INVESTIGAION– The FBI suspects that Neal Falls may have left a jagged swath of murder victims running through West Virginia, Ohio, New York, Illinios, Kansas, Texas, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, California and at least 10 other states.
SERIAL KILLER- It appears that Neal Falls, resident of Springfield, Oregon, had no criminal history. His identity as a serial killer slipped past law enforcement for years. He worked as a security guard and possibly for the railroad, all across the United States.
He was fingerprinted by the FBI when obtaining his many security guard certifications. His certifications were active from 1999-2015.
From 2000-2008 Neal Falls was employed as a “traffic control guard” at Hoover Dam. He lived in Henderson, Nevada, on the outskirts of Vegas. During this time period authorities believe he may have killed women and dumped their bodies in California, just across Nevada/Arizona State Lines. In those days, he may have used Craigslist, in addition to finding his victims on the open road.
Former Hoover Dam co-workers of Neal Falls, (who found his behavior bizarre) once asked him what he had been doing the night before. He exclaimed without reservation “I was driving up and down the highway!”.
Many girls were reported missing (or found dead) from the Mojave desert region of southern California during the 8 year period in which Neal Falls worked at Hoover Dam.
After Falls was fatally shot by Heather Saul, a list was recovered from his pocket with the names of ten women. Police believe the named females were going to be his next victims.
Nine of the women on the list were from West Virginia, one of them from San Diego.
MISSING/ UNSOLVED MURDERS- With so many missing and murdered women in California from Oregon to the Mexican Border, is it possible Neal Falls, the alleged “Butcher of Backpage”, was here?
Although Neal Falls was active thousands of miles from the Mojave Desert, his most current address was Oregon, which may have brought him to the interstates of California for the past 15 years.
CALIFORNIA INTERSTATE: I-15 & I-40
- Interstate 1-15 from San Bernardino to Barstow to Vegas
- Interstate I-40 from Barstow to Needles to Arizona
Not only are there predators in the desert, these famous highways cut through some of the hottest places on Earth. Death Valley holds the world’s highest recorded temperature of 134 degrees.
Girls do not travel these interstates alone. Not even in broad daylight.
Historically, long desert highways have attracted mayhem of all sorts. Both I-15 and I-40 are part of Old Route 66. Stories of the Mojave and Old Route 66 are legendary and quite mysterious.
Manson. Mummies. Mine Shafts and Murders.
Welcome to California.
Please Follow the Law and Stay Safe.
