NY serial killer could be a cop: investigators
Echoing the popular TV show Showtime, Dexter, in which a cop leads a double life as a serial killer, New York cops think the serial killer who has murdered at least four women may be a former or current law enforcement official, the New York Times reports.
Investigators say that the killer shows a high understanding of police operations, from contacting the four prostitutes who have fallen victim to him with disposable cell phones, to making calls to a victim’s home from crowded parts of New York City, where the killer would blend in on surveillance footage, even if his phone signal was pinpointed.
Over three days, police found the bodies of four women in burlap sacks along the same underbrush-covered beachside strip in Long Island. They believe all are victims of the same killer.
