    IN - 3 Terre Haute women strangled, Kevin Hampton charged, 2000, 2004

    DNA evidence has linked a man charged with the murders of three Indiana women to sexual assault cases in Nevada and California, according to court records.

    An affidavit filed by prosecutors said Kevin Hampton's DNA matches evidence recovered from a rape in Las Vegas and a sexual assault in San Diego, both in 2000.

    Prosecutors charged Hampton with killing Tanette Dickison, 18, and Cassie Harris, 48, both of whom disappeared within hours of each other in late November. The two women knew each other and worked as prostitutes, court documents said.

    Hampton also was charged with rape and felony murder of Dianna Lehman, 18, who was found dead in her home in May 2000. Authorities declined to say how Hampton knew her but said she had no record of prostitution

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Thanks for that news --- it's always good to hear when crimes are solved. CODIS, no doubt --- wish more cold cases could have enough DNA evidence and/or funding for testing to be entered into CODIS for potential matches.

    Dianna Lehman was an 18-year-old single mother trying to build a life for herself and her infant son when she moved into a rundown Terre Haute neighborhood.

    Cassie Harris, 48, and Tanette Dickison, 18, worked as prostitutes not far away and shared a relationship that witnesses likened to that of a mother and daughter.

    All three were strangled in a four-year span, the victims, police say, of a man who might have preyed on young women across the country for nearly two decades.

    The arrest last month of Kevin L. Hampton, 43, Terre Haute, in the three slayings brought together cases that have stymied investigators since Lehman's body was found in her home in May 2000. She had been raped and strangled with a pair of blue jeans.

    Investigators have offered few details beyond those included in court records and have declined to categorize Hampton as a serial offender, although police said DNA evidence links him to sexual assaults on 18-year-old women in California and Las Vegas in 2000.

    Police have not said whether Hampton will be charged in the California and Nevada cases, or in an Indiana rape investigation that gave them a break in the case.
