We've got another one.
Jessica Albright. Seventeen-year-old blonde at a different high school, but not far from the last one. Nice figure, outgoing, popular, had a supporting family, loving boyfriend...almost the exact opposite of the last girl that was taken.
But when we talked to the parents, it was the exact same story. In the last month or so, she started getting agitated, moody, completely paranoid. Kept it bottled up more, but they could still notice it. Her boyfriend said that sometimes when they were having fun in the backseat of his car she would stop and peer around as if she thought someone was there. Whenever he asked what it was, she would just say nothing in an angry tone that, in his words, “wasn't her”. She withdrew, shut the world out, and then one morning she was just gone.
Just like the Krell girl. What the hell is happening here? One girl showing these signs is one thing, but two showing the exact same signs was something else. And we showed the picture of Victoria to everyone we interviewed, family, friends, boyfriend. No one had a clue who she was. These two girls were complete strangers.
But they're both gone. Under the same circumstances.
We don't have a sketchbook this time around, but Lizzie did manage to get the girl's diary off of the parents. Special permissions and what not. I don't know what she expects to find, from what the friends told us, she was never really interested in anything artsy. Maybe more of what we found at the other scene? Still not sure, I suppose she'll get back to me.
I'm starting to get pretty concerned here. Two girls missing within three days of each other, both showing the same signs of paranoia and aggression before they go MIA. Could be coincidence, but in my line of work, I've come to learn that there's no such thing. There has to be a relation here. I'm starting to wonder if we're not dealing with a serial kidnapper or a serial rapist.
I'm starting to wonder if we shouldn't put the whole god damn town on alert...
