Aliases: Larry Breeden
Wanted For: Murder, Attempted Murder, Kidnapping
Missing Since: March 1996
CaseEditDetails: On March 2, 1996, Alicia Showalter Reynolds of Baltimore said goodbye to her husband and left to drive more than 150 miles to spend the day with her mother in Charlottesville, but never arrived. Sadie Showalter waited for her daughter for several hours, but eventually left. At around 6PM and fifty miles away, her car was found near Culpeper, Virginia, and a napkin was on her windshield indicating that she had car trouble, despite the fact that an inspection determined that nothing was wrong with it. The next day, police set up a road block and talked to witnesses who said they had seen her talking to a man with a blue pickup at the side of the road. Police later found out that at least twenty women came forward claiming that an unidentified man had been honking and yelling at them saying that there was something wrong with their car.
Some of them pulled over and he took them to a pay phone without incident. Others, however, claimed that when they ignored him he became furious and later drove away. Two weeks before Alicia's disappearance, a woman told police that she was driving home when the man approached her. He claimed that there was problems with her car, and he offered her a ride, which she accepted. A few minutes later, he began attacking her, and she was able to escape his car, receiving a broken ankle in the process. Police believe he was a serial killer perfecting his future attacks on women, most likely the same one that Alicia encountered. On May 7, two months after she vanished, her body was found in a wooded area fifteen miles southeast from where she had vanished. She had been murdered, possibly on the day she vanished and police believe her murderer could be repeating this same scenario elsewhere. He has never been identified and the case remains unsolved. The unidentified man is described as 35 to 40 years old, 5'10" to 6'0" tall, with a medium build, reddish brown hair, and may use the name Larry Breedan. He has used several vehicles, including a dark Nissan pickup truck. Maryland man name Darrell Rice is considered a person of interest in this case. He served time in jail for trying to kidnap a female bicyclist around the time of Alicia's disappearance. Also, he was charged with the attack on the woman who broke her ankle trying to escape from the Route 29 Stalker. He pled guilty to a lesser charge and was given less than a year in prison. Rice is also a suspect in the murders of Julianne Marie Williams and Laura Winans.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the November 15, 1996 episode.
