  • Movie about I-45 'killing fields' planned

    http://www.ultimateclearlake.com/201...gue-city-movie

    I frequent I-45 when going to Galveston or Dallas. It is one busy road 24/7 and it is amazing that a serial killer has operated there for so long without being caught. The following episode is truly baffling:

    Jessica Cain had just graduated high school in 1997 and had planned on becoming a criminologist at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. She was celebrating graduation with friends at a Bennigan's Restaurant in Clear Lake City (southeast suburban Houston) and left about 1 AM to return home (she was alone) to Tiki Island, a wealthy enclave just north of Galveston on I-45. She never made it.

    Her abandoned car was found on the southbound shoulder of I-45 several miles north of the Galveston Causeway, her keys and purse still in it. There was no trace of her, no blood, and she remains missing to this day.

    I can't fathom what could have made her stop there, a young woman alone at that time of night, for any reason, as she was only a few miles from her home. As stated, this road is very busy at all hours, yet no one reported anything unusual. If someone had been hiding in the back floorboard of her car, would they have let her get almost home before making a move?

    Anyway, I'll be curious to see how they handle this film.

    Hi Tim

    Thanks for alerting us to this upcoming movie. There might not be such a mystery to Jessica Cain's disappearance and to her car being found abandoned on a lonely stretch of highway if she was perhaps abducted by a drifter at a gas station or convenience store and made to drive to the other location. Of course that might also imply there was more than one killer since the other man would need to provide transportation for the first man. Just a thought.

      Thanks Tim. I hope this gets made since it seems like half these true-crime movie projects don't.

        Dunno, Chris; if something like that had happened, why didn't he take her purse, which still had her money and credit cards in it? I puzzled this over for a long time when it happened and gave it up.

        Along that long stretch of I-45 are numerous side roads and thick forest. Her remains probably lie somewhere back in there.

        And the famous Baby Grace story of 2007 also took place in this immediate vicinity, although it was an unrelated incident. The stepfather who murdered her threw her body into Galveston Bay not far from where Jessica Cain's car was found. Read it and weep.

          A well-nigh unbelievable sequel to the sad story of Jessica Cain.

          And then there's this from the local paper:
