Have a look at how many people disappear without a trace every year, around the planet. That´s how hard it is - almost as hard as to make you see how it works.

Nilsen's murders were first discovered by a Dyno-Rod employee...Opening a drain cover at the side of the house, Cattran discovered the drain was packed with a flesh-like substance and numerous small bones of unknown origin.

Chuck it in. Walk away. Job done. Who cares if it's found or not - in those pre-DNA days, they have next to no chance of tracing the perpetrator, and they probably won't even identify the victim.

In Britain, some 250000-275000 people disappear every year. Most are found, but after a year, 16000-20000 are still missing.

So 20000 people get lost, Rocky. If we add you, it´s 20001.

Now I am getting lost. If you will not see sense after the arguments I have made, there is nothing more I can do, so I have said what I am going to say on this errand.

Still like you, though.

That might be a good thing. You aren't doing same killer enthusiasts any favors

"Dumb"? Is that Freudian? Anyway, let Gareth answer. You have had your chance and you blew it emphatically.
