INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY JOINS LAW ENFORCEMENT IN AN ONGOING INVESTIGATION OF SIX OPEN CASES IN NEW DOCUSERIES, THE VANISHING WOMEN
— Six Women in Chillicothe, Ohio Have Gone Missing or Been Found Dead Since May, 2014 —
(Silver Spring, Md.)—On the surface, Chillicothe, Ohio is the epitome of quintessential Middle America. But this home in the heartland was catapulted into the national spotlight recently for a much darker claim to fame: a string of six young women have gone missing or been found dead in the past year and a half. The women, all in their 20s and 30s, are believed to have known each other and all have ties to the dark underbelly of this small town, leading the local community to fear a serial killer on the loose. With unprecedented access, Investigation Discovery (ID) has teamed with law enforcement, loved ones of the victims, and the community to document the investigation as it unfolds in an effort to bring further attention and help in solving these open cases. As ID’s first serialized docuseries, the six-part series THE VANISHING WOMEN will premiere on Monday, June 6 at 10/9.
“An ambitious serialized docuseries, THE VANISHING WOMEN documents the past and present work of an active criminal investigation and, in that regard, we are honored to lend our own efforts and resources to those of the victims’ loved ones as well as the skilled and adept forces at the Chillicothe Police Department and the Ross County Sheriff’s Office,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel, and Destination America. “As the leading television destination for true crime investigation, our intention is to help elevate these cases to a national level in the hope that fresh leads or new information will surface so that the perpetrator – or perpetrators – are swiftly brought to justice.”
Each one-hour episode of THE VANISHING WOMEN seeks to understand the circumstances around the disappearance of the women, while exploring the facts and evidence that seemingly brought them to their tragic fate. While each of the victims are believed to have known each other in some way, three of the six women have been found in or near bodies of water, one was found shot to death, and two remain missing. Information on each of the women can be found here, and anyone with information is asked to call the task force hotline at 740-774-FIND (3463) or findme@RossSheriff.com.

What do you think? How do you like the sound of The Vanishing Women TV show? Do you plan to watch the series premiere?
I need to get in contact with producers of this show .. u showed me and my face on here and now everyone thinks I am involved ..
I have throughly enjoyed this program and am disappointed that it is cancelled. I was looking forward to watching the next episode. I really hate it when they cancel a program in the middle if the season. It feels like they cheat you out of all that time you invested in watching the program to begin with.
Shannon…where do you see that it is canceled? The new episode is on July 11th.
I agree with you Kathy. The more the facts, locations, descriptions and the history of these missing girls is told the sooner the crime will be solved and the sooner the poor parents can have healing and closure. It is very sad and as a Mother my heart goes out to all of the parents, families and friends that lost their daughter/friend to such a horrific ending. I pray for them daily and will eventually buy the book.
I think it is an excellent show. The information and the facts regarding the missing girls kinda stays with you when the show is over. I do not think though the girls are missing due to sex trafficking. I seriously believe after studying different types of murderers, that this is a serial murder type. Remember when we discuss serial murderers they generally fade into the general public, they have certain targets, and and they kill over a long or certain amount of time.
How do you get Vanishing Women pamphlet? Can’t find it here in west central Ohio?
I think this channel is like a never ending broadcast for all the families out there that are so desperate to get information to the public about their loved ones! Yes some of the programs are quite graphic but so was the situation in which they are trying to describe which leads a person to be that much more aware. May God Bless the families and all that struggle to bring the insanity to a close!
I do not get this cable channel. Wish I did. Time to bring this situation to a CLOSE!
i wish i could but my dish pkg doesn’t have the channel…i just wish it would be aired on other networks so more people could see it. its important that as many see it as possible…or at least be able to watch it for free online. i live in ross co., grew up here, not everyone has the money to pay for an important show like this
Hello,i have seen the previews of “vanishing women” this show looks realy interresting but i dont seem to be able to watch may be because i am in canada and the listing is not the same??? I just find it really said because i took this chanel most likely for this show that was annonce on lifetime i think. My schedule said that at 10pm the dhow erring will be “Deadly Women” said to say may be i whont keep this chanel.
This is a very sad situation. My heart goes out to the families of the victims and the victims themselves. What our society has become, with rampid drug usage, drug dealers and gangs arising from the situation… is a very sad state of affairs.
I truly hope that this docuseries will bring attention to the crimes and bring those responsible to justice. Much like, The Killing Fields, in Louisiana.
i think it’s a great idea. it might help someone (public) remember something useful. shine a light into the darkness, so to speak, and help solve this crime. personnally, i will be watching as i am addicted to I.D.
I’m going to watch it. Definitely.
My cousin married a woman from Chillicothe and see is a wonderful person. The town has been on a deep decline since the late 1970’s, it is hard times in Chillicothe. I hope this show will bring some leads and additional evidence that helps bring justice and closure to this very tragic situation. I plan to watch or sure.
Really looking forward to seeing this docu-series in June. Discovery I’D does an excellent job at presenting quality reporting crimes against persons and the psyches of the perpetrators.
Hopefully someone will have some kind of information on this subject to bring piece of mind to these heartbroken families. God bless all whom has suffered from this sick individual whom is responsible for these acts.
