Coming Soon: Predators on the Parkway E-Magazine Expose

In early June, I visited the area of Yorktown, Virginia at the request of the families of the Colonial Parkway murder victims.  Soon afterwards, I posted a cursory review of the Spingola Files’ (SF) findings relating to the homicides of three couples and the disappearance of another. 

These complex cases have puzzled law enforcement for almost a generation.  Since SF’s visit, new information was uncovered that may very well establish a person of interest (POI) in one of the couple slayings. 

In an effort to examine the Colonial Parkway murders in more detail, I have published a soon-to-be-released 29-page e-magazine expose.  Predators on the Parkway: a Former Homicide Detective Explores the Colonial Parkway Murders will likely be available for purchase at on or near August 10, 2010 for just $3. 

This e-magazine article provides new details about the crime scenes as well as the discovery of new information leading to a possible break in one of the couple homicides. Moreover, by purchasing this article, readers are supporting the Spingola Files’ efforts to examine other homicide cases from around the nation.

As the release date approaches, check this site for more information.


Steven Spingola is a former Milwaukee Police Department homicide detective and author of The Killer in Our Midst: the Case of Milwaukee’s North Side Strangler.

    Thank you, Bill. I did mention your efforts and determination in the Predators on the Parkway e-magazine expose. There are a few people out there — Fred Atwell, Jennifer Phelps, and yourself — that make a difference.

    Steve Spingola, I wish you would pay attention to the unsolved death of my dear friend and family member Letisha (Tish) Faust, who was killed (we are certain it was murder) near the Parkway at Walnut Ridge near Endicott, Va., this past December, her car found in January, her body found in March or April of this year. She had told her mother on her cellphone that she was stopping at a parkway overlook on her way home from Stuart, and she never was seen alive again.

    The circumstances are so bizarre, that all of us who knew her well are certain she was attacked and killed by a predator, likely with a sexual motive. I have wondered whether she was “kidnapped” by “Viagra Man” or by one of several laborers in the vicinity of the Parkway, or even by a certain member of local law enforcement in that vicinity.

    Please let me know if you have looked into this case. Tish deserves Truth to be told, and her murderer should be held to account.

    I will look into the case. When time permits, if you could forward any links to I would appreciate it. There are many unsolved stranger homicides in Virginia. But, before they can be linked, information, such as cause of death, etc. need exploring.
