|Pimping ain't easy. The feds are searching for Ohio man who has ties to missing women in Chillicothe.|
The Feds are looking for an Ohio man who may have led Chillicothe women to their deaths.
Ernest "Dollar Bill" Moore is a notorious pimp says the Ross County sheriff. He is a person of interest in the disappearance of three women.
Moore, 36, has been declared a "parole violator at large" by Ross County Sheriff George W. Lavender. He's also been named a "person of interest in the drug trade and at risk women involved in human trafficking," the Missing Women's Task Force said in a Thursday evening press release.
The task force, made up of officials from the sheriff's office, Chillicothe Police Department, FBI and Ohio's Bureau of Criminal Investigation, was formed earlier this summer to search for answers in a string of unsolved deaths and disappearances.

It's part of the Columbus, Ohio metropolitan area.
The city of Chilliocthe is on the edge. Six women turned up either missing or dead. Some of these women were associated with the stroll. They were either addicts of the "boy" or "toke".
There is a hotel that many considered the red lights lights district. Many of these women were near that hotel when they've disappeared.
Three of the six have been found dead in or near different creeks and streams. One was found shot to death, and the remaining two are still missing.
During a June 23 press conference, Lavender said authorities have not yet ruled out the possibility that a serial killer could be responsible for some of the deaths and disappearances.

The Huffington Post reports that the two missing women have been identified as Charlotte Trego, 27, who was last seen alive on May 3, 2014, and Wanda Lemons, 37, who disappeared from Chillicothe on Nov. 3, 2014.
Shasta Himelrick, a 20-year-old expectant mother, was last seen by her family on Christmas Day 2014. Roughly a week later, searchers found her body in the Scioto River.
Timberly Claytor, 38, was found dead of gunshot wounds on May 29 in Massieville, a small town about five miles south of Chillicothe. A grand jury has indicted Jason McCrary, 36, on one count of murder in connection with Claytor's slaying. He has not been named a suspect in any of the other cases.
Tameka Lynch, 30, disappeared in Chillicothe on May 3, 2014, the same day Trego was last seen alive. Lynch was found dead three weeks later, in a creek roughly 20 miles downstream from where it passes through Chillicothe.
The latest victim to be found is 26-year-old Tiffany Sayre, who was last seen in Chillicothe in May. The following month, two people discovered Sayre's body near a culvert along Paint Creek, not far from where Lynch's body was found.
All six women are believed to have known each other, police said.

According to local media outlet ABC6 News, court records show Moore was released in February from jail, where he had been held on a drug trafficking offense. It remains unclear when he was initially incarcerated for that charge.
