Va. Stabbings Investigated for Link to Serial Killer

August 10, 2010

Police in Virginia believe that a serial killer who fatally stabbed five people and wounded 10 others in Michigan since May is also responsible for a series of stabbings in a northern Virginia town that have almost exclusively targeted black men.

At a news conference Monday, Leesburg Chief of Police Joseph R. Price said he is confident, though not certain, that the same man is responsible not only for the two stabbings and a hammer attack in his town in the last week as well as the Michigan murders.

The suspect, a white man, has been linked in attacks in both
states.

The victims in the Leesburg attacks were two African-American men and a Latino teen with a dark complexion. In Michigan, all but two of the 15 victims were black.
