POSSIBLY A TROOPER?
I suspect the CPK was a trooper and that he did not ABDUCT these victims on or around the Colonial Parkway. He abducted them from somewhere else, then brought them to and killed on or near the Colonial Parkway. As a trooper he would have known the murders would not have fallen under the jurisdiction of the State police, but instead they would have been investigated by the National Park Service's Special Investigators/Rangers. He also knew the cars would be found right away when a ranger began his route patrol, then towed. Towing would destroy/contaminate evidence. For those two reasons, he may have specifically left the vehicles on or near the Colonial Parkway. The CPK didn't want State troopers to investigate the crimes because they may have noticed something that would point to another trooper, and he may have believed the ranger's had a lesser chance of solving the cases. Evidence would have been in possession of the Feds/rangers. State police investigators would not have access to any of it. The CPK did not want state police/investigators or any local LE to poke through the evidence.
Also, as a State trooper, the CPK would have been able to pull up the driver's registrations, where he could ascertain that his target was a 20 year old Caucasian male. He may have begun pulling up plates after he abducted and killed his first victims (Cathy & Becky), who he may have thought was a traditional couple when he found them. He then realized guessing did not work. As a trooper he would have known the whereabouts of other patrolmen at the exact times he abducted the victims, murdered them, parked their vehicles. At legal holiday weekends, police departments utilized all their officers to create check points and to be on the busiest roads where there were the most accidents in the past. A trooper would have known where those check points and roads were.
Then again, the killer may have brrn a ranger and placed the bodies on National property so that he would have access to the investigatiion and evidence.
