Excerpt: Chapter 5
Local law enforcement were not the only ones consumed with solving the murders. The type of person capable of committing such an act weighed heavily on the mind of Detective Robert Snyder.
According to Snyder, he received an early copy of the psychological profile performed by an Ohio State University criminologist and felt the profile “exactly matched” that of local butcher Kevin Meyer.
The profile stated the perpetrator would prefer driving a truck, and be a hunter, fisherman, gun enthusiast, or camper. The perpetrator would possess a varied employment history and show behavior changes after the murders. That person was probably sexually involved with the female victim.
Doing a background search on Meyer, Det. Snyder discovered Meyer was abandoned at a local laundromat at the age of six by his mother. He went from foster home to foster home, living an unusual lifestyle. He subscribed to mercenary magazines.
Snyder said he contacted Sheriff Jones concerning the psychological profile and claimed the sheriff was “unprofessional, rude, and bizarre” .
Snyder said when he accused the forensic profile of matching the sheriff’s cousin Kevin Meyer, the sheriff became “belligerent” and admitted to knowing about the profile, saying “it matched a lot of people in Logan,” and “most especially Dale Johnston.”
