Since the 1970s, more than 30 women have been found missing or murdered off Interstate 45 in Texas, in the state’s most notorious massacre.
Detectives have described the remote area as a perfect dump for a serial killer, which made investigating things so difficult.
Orange County’s California Highway Patrol was called on Wednesday morning after the woman, who had a fire gun, stopped at 55 south in Costa Mesa, ABC7 reports.
Her actions shut the highway down for over an hour. The woman was taken into custody and the police were to investigate her allegations.
CHP officer Florentino Olivera told The LA Times“She told [CHP] she wanted her story to be told that her father was the serial killer from Texas. ‘
Last April, the bodies of two young women found dead in the ‘Texas Killing Field’ were identified after 30 years of a breakthrough in forensic DNA analysis.
Police identified the two women as Audrey Lee Cook, from Memphis, Tennessee, and Donna Prudhomme, from Port Arthur, Texas.
Cook was found in 1986 and Prudhomme was discovered in 1991.
Their body identification comes decades after their horrific remains were discovered in the oil field along Calder Road in League City, just outside of Houston.
Their bodies were exposed in the same location where two other previously identified women were murdered and dumped.
Thirty bodies have been found in the Killing Fields since the 1970s.
