During their investigation on the Lekanoff/Rothe case, Anchorage detectives told AMW they came across at least five other names of women who had turned up missing in Anchorage. Between 1993 and 2001, Traci Vicent, Jeri Brommels, Kelly Dunn, Robin Van Sickel and Samantha Kent had all vanished without a trace. Cops think they could all be connected by Anchorage's underground world of sex and drugs.
