    MO - Derek Richardson, Kansas City, 2011 (committed suicide in jail)


    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City-area man was arrested Saturday in the killings of two prostitutes whose bodies were found posed on the sides of rural Missouri roads nearly a year apart.

    At a news conference Saturday night, authorities said Derek Richardson, 27, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of abandonment of a corpse. His bail is set at $2 million. It wasn't immediately known whether he has an attorney.

    "We absolutely stopped a person who was going to kill again," said Kansas City police Sgt. Doug Niemeier, adding that authorities will search across the United States to ensure there weren't other victims.

    Looking into wheather this guy is responsible for more deaths, as he has traveled around apparently.

    Murder defendant described as aspiring serial killer pronounced dead

    When Derek Richardson was arrested earlier this year and charged with killing two area women, police said they were convinced he would have killed again.

    But in the end the only other life Richardson would take was his own.
    Clay County officials announced that the 27-year-old Kansas City, North, man died at 4:42 p.m. Thursday at a hospital where he was taken Sunday after a jail cell suicide attempt.

    Richardson, the married father of a young son, was described by authorities as an aspiring serial killer. He had been on life support since deputies discovered him in his cell Sunday morning.

    Always give generously of yourself to support your beliefs. And when you're knocked down, give more.
