It seems like in these types of cases, the perpetrator meets the victim at a local bar, then murders the victim in another location. I agree with local law enforcement as to how Katherine met her killer. The question is, was this a sexually-motivated murder, a robbery of some sort? We even don't know from the description if law enforcement even knows what the method of murder was.
