Authorities are trying to solve the mysterious murder of Lindsay Harris. AMW aired her case as a missing person three times and five more times after her partial remains were discovered.
Lindsay Harris grew up in Upstate New York but moved to Las Vegas in January 2003 to be with her boyfriend Solomon Baron. Lindsay's family only learned about Solomon when she brought him to a family visit in 2004. On May 5, 2005, Solomon called the Harris family to say that Lindsay had gone missing. What the Harris's didn't know was that Lindsay had lied when she told them she was working as a nightclub dancer in Las Vegas, she was also working as an escort. Her last known location was that her Mercedes was found near a different Vegas casino then where she had called an acquaintance. A rented PT Cruiser in her name was found in the desert near her home.
It should be noted that Solomon was in Syracuse, New York when she disappeared. In 2008, authorities identified a pair of severed legs found near Interstate 55 all the way in Illinois as being that of Lindsay Harris. The remains were first located on May 25, 2005. The rest of her remains were never recovered. This may be an indication that her killer is a truck driver. What makes that unusual is that Lindsay was last known to be near a casino parking lot and not a location that truckers frequent. This also doesn't explain as to why her rental car was found near her home but not at her home.
Between 2003 and 2006, three other Vegas prostitutes disappeared under similar circumstances. Two of the women, Misty Saens and Jodi Brewer were killed similar to that of Lindsay Harris. However, Jessica Foster the last woman was never located. It should be noted that Lindsay and Misty were both dismembered with a similar type of weapon (the last airing of this case brought that fact up). Misty and Jodi's remains were found near Las Vegas. If those two cases are linked to Lindsay then it's possible that Lindsay was also killed in or near Las Vegas. I wonder if anyone ever brought up the possibility that Lindsay's killer could have had access to a refrigeration unit (would make sense if the killer is a trucker) that could have prevented Lindsay's legs from decomposing.
As for Solomon Baron, he was arrested in 2010 on prostitution charges. I believe on the old forums, we had determined that Solomon may know more about this case than what he had let onto AMW, although he was in New York when Lindsay disappeared. If anyone can remember what we had talked about then please mention it here.
Thoughts? It appears that the murders of Lindsay, Misty and Jodi are all connected. Jessica Foster is another story that I should really do some research on so I don't know if that case is connected.
