Illinois Connection

I live in Chester, Illinois. I wrote about a serial killer from my hometown of Wabash, Indiana who is responsible for the death or disappearance of five or more girls from Illinois. Larry DeWayne Hall was convicted of the kidnapping of 15-year-old Jessica Roach of Georgetown, Illinois. Her remains were found in a cornfield near Perrysville, Indiana in November of 1993. Since my book, Urges, A Chronicle of Serial Killer Larry Hall was published, Hall has confessed to murders in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois and Missouri. He is serving a life-without-release sentence at a federal correctional facility in North Carolina.
