Riding with the Truck Stop Killer

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 25, 2012

In 1985, Vanessa Veselka was a teenaged hitchhiker who was picked up by a man who would come to be known as the Truck Stop Killer. Nearly three decades later, she returns to the scene of that experience and writes about it for GQ: “I said I wouldn’t go to the cops if nothing happened to me, but it was his choice — until he looked at me and I went still. There was going to be no more talking. I knew in my body that it was over.”
