Three women turned up dead in Lumberton, North Carolina, late in the spring of 2017.

All three were found naked and decomposed.

One was found in a television cabinet, another upside down in a trashcan, and the third under some brush and shingles.

Then two more women vanished. All five were in the same neighborhood.

No one has been arrested.
