Court testimony indicates some of the women who came into contact with alleged serial killer John E. Robinson found him through personal ads. They’d been placed in Kansas City’s Pitch Weekly. The publication’s romance editor, Katherine Jackson, says the ads are very popular with a variety of people, though the internet has cut into their numbers. They recommend readers be careful before contacting a stranger through one of the classifieds. During a recent court hearing for Robinson some women testified they met Robinson through the Pitch.
