some have asked questions regarding my post the other day: The serial
killer was Leslie Allen Williams and he is (thank heavens) incarcerated
way up north serving consecutive life terms with no chance of parole.
The year was 1992. The gas station he worked at was a Speedway station
in South Lyon. All 4 murdered girls ranged in age from 14 to 18, and
were taken between Sept 1991 and Jan 1992. I encountered him in May,
1992. The 5th victim, who had been found alive in the trunk of his car,
was 35 at the time. I was almost 31 at the time. For 20 years I thought
I'd been "out of his target zone" because of my age...but I discovered
just this week that I'd misremembered all this time about #5---I thought
she'd been 18. Apparently he had shifted his target zone right at the
time of our "encounter." And although I can't blame the station, I never
have and never will return to it.
