CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (AP) - The fate of six women - four of them dead, two missing for months - have people on edge in the small southern Ohio city of Chillicothe as relatives seek clues, seemingly in vain, to whatever happened to their loved ones.

Grieving family members and nervous residents worry about a serial killer in their midst. Police say they aren't ruling anything out, but that it's more likely the women's troubled histories caught up with them in deadly ways.

All were drug addicts and several had prostituted themselves to feed their habit.

Police also say that because the women ran in the same circles, someone knows the fuller story.

Chillicothe police Officer Bud Lytle (LEYE'-tuhl) says someone out there has the information that can break the case.
