When Falls County, Texas Sheriff Larry Pamplin heard Kenneth McDuff was out on parole, he prophetically stated, “I don’t know if will be a few days, a few weeks, or a few weeks, but bodies will start turning up.”
Indeed, a string of abductions started happening up and down the Interstate 35 corridor between Dallas and Austin.
McDuff started a murderous crime spree that would span two and a half years.
The paroled triple killer and an accomplice circled an Austin car wash stalking a victim.
In the words of McDuff, “they were on the hunt for a woman to use up.”
It was just a few days after Christmas in 1991.
They spotted Colleen Reed, a petite Austin accountant, washing her new sports car.
Neighbors hear her shrill scream.
In a split second, Colleen disappeared, never to be seen alive again.
