“There have been an alarming number of deaths where young men of college age are found in a body of water with a smiley face drawn nearby them. The killings are completely unconnected in most ways aside from the fact that most are completely unsolved and listed simply as accidental drownings.  The thing connecting all of them is a sort of calling card that two investigators are suggesting is the link to all the drowned victims. The case is known widely as the smiley face killings.  Currently there are some 40 suspected victims over 11 states.”

When criminal profiler Pat Brown first approached me about airing a segment on the Smiley Face Killers, I must admit that I had not heard anything of any real consequence about the case.

Perhaps her breadth of knowledge and passion for her work is why Pat is without a doubt one of the top, if not the top criminal profilers in the world, and like other notorious unsolved cases, she wanted to tackle the subject head on.

Now for the uninitiated, the Smiley Face killings as they have come to be called has captured the imagination of the public, gaining mainstream media attention in 2009 when Detectives Kevin Gannon and Anthony Duarte talked with Larry King about their investigation into the mysterious drowning death of college student Patrick McNeill back in 1997.

Since 1997, a clear pattern of predatory behavior has emerged causing authorities to consider the possibility that the seemingly random drowning deaths of 40 (perhaps more) male college students is the work of a single killer or worse yet killers.

In the Monday, November 15th From Pat’s Gallery of Killers Radio Series “True Profiler: Pat Brown Discusses The Smiley Face Murders,” Pat will talk about the case in which which a happy or smiley face has been a consistent signature spanning many years and many states in a silent, yet terrifying embroidery of predatory opportunism.
