This news was picked up yesterday by Kristi Piehl on her website, sfkillers.com and also appeared on KCCI.com. According to the latter, "investigators said it is too early to say whether there may be any connection between the cases, but investigators are looking into them and not ruling out any possibilities."
It should be noted that all three college-age men disappeared during the same six-day period along Interstate 35. The city where each man was last seen was roughly 3 hours south of the previous disappearance:
- 1/17/10: Sylvester McCurry, 18, Superior, WI
- 1/19/10: Eric Peterson, 24, Lakeville, MN
- 1/22/10: Jon Lacina, 21, Ames, IA
