(RepublicanDaily.org) – Serial killers can sometimes seem like they only exist in murder mystery novels. Tragically, however, this type of violent crime takes place in real life as well. Police in Washington, DC and New York City cooperated in an effort to track down a suspect whom they believe is responsible for killings in both places.
Earlier in March, three homeless individuals suffered violent attacks in Washington, DC. The third of these was fatal, with the victim suffering stab and gunshot wounds, before being left in a burning tent.
Subsequently, there were two attacks on homeless men in the New York borough of Manhattan. Again, one of the victims died. Reports have confirmed police forces from both cities are cooperating to try to figure out whether the attacks might be linked. They have also made contact with law enforcement bodies along the East Coast to see if any are working on similar cases.
Police believe a serial killer is responsible for shooting 3 homeless men in NYC, as well as 2 in DC.
Please urge anyone you know on the street to seek shelter. If you see someone vulnerable call 311.
And if you have info on suspect, call 800-577-TIPS.https://t.co/ozOWc6BcjZ
