    (...)

    Shortly before 5 a.m. Monday, a second homeless man was found bleeding from stab wounds to his upper body in the 3700 block of Greenwood Street, near Valley View Casino Center in the Midway district. He was hospitalized in critical condition.

    Less than 90 minutes later, another transient was found dead in the 2500 block of Bacon Street, in a coastal neighborhood about three miles from the scene of the second attack.

    San Diego police are investigating a series of violent attacks against homeless people, including one man who was “badly burned” and killed, raising concerns that someone may be targeting vulnerable individuals living on the streets.
    Police in the southern California city , which has long grappled with a large homeless population, said on Tuesday that they believe the same suspect is behind three gruesome attacks against homeless people over the weekend, including the two murders

    Authorities released convenience store surveillance video of the man — identified as a person of interest — wearing a baseball cap, jacket and a backpack. They describe him as 30 to 50 years old.
    “When you look at all three cases, looking at the scene, talking to people, this person is definitely someone we want to talk to,” said San Diego police Capt. Dave Nisleit, who declined to comment on possible motives for the attacks.

    Here is the video released by LE from their facebook page:

    A few thoughts- people have said he looks homeless based on the screenshots. I disagree. At least in the sense that yes, he has a backpack but he's clean shaven and wearing light colored pants that don't appear filthy. Also his clothes and sneakers look relatively expensive- not high end but mainstream style : the gap, banana republic, LL bean. He doesn't look like he's been living in them for very long, is what I'm trying to say.

    I think he's a serial killer/spree killer and he's organized in planning this sick mission out.

    He's wearing a cap to help hide his features and he's *wearing gloves* which means no fingerprints from the convenience store.

    I agree with you. I also think the surveillance video is pretty clear (as far as surveillance videos go), so I'm hoping word gets out and someone recognizes him.

    How heartbreaking and what an evil monster this is.

    "On Sunday morning, witnesses reported seeing a man on fire running down the train tracks alongside Interstate 5, according to CNN affiliate KSWB. Police later found the badly charred body of a male.
    At about the same time, witnesses reported seeing another man in his late 40s to early 50s darting across the freeway away from the train tracks carrying a gas can, said Lt. Manny Del Toro with the San Diego Police.

    …..

    All the attacks appear to be "senseless, random attacks on the homeless," he said. He encouraged the homeless population to sleep and walk in groups and noted that the attacks have been unnerving for the city"

    Based on the screenshots I couldn't say he looks more homeless than not. I wonder if he's attempting to look "homeless" to avoid detection either when dealing with his potential victims or dealing with others. If you look like that in a grocery store or 7-11 most people are going to look past you. Just another homeless guy wearing a backpack.

    The gloves though. They make him stand out.

    How so? And what do you mean by "statistically speaking"?
    Many homeless people have mental health issues, some have issues with addiction and/or alcoholism as well (often self-medicating).
    Homeless people as a group aren't exactly flush with money for purchasing drugs.
    They also aren't usually dealing.
    They are often victims of violence though.
    They are a very vulnerable population.

    All my own opinion here. MOO, MOO, MOO

    This sick horrible man probably thinks he is some kind of vigilante solving the problem. I've been following the local news around here and feel the city needs to seriously change their attitudes towards what will really help the homeless. MOO, we need to start addressing real solutions and not just shuffling the homeless around. I think what this man is doing to the homeless is one of the worst crimes against human beings. I hope and pray these crimes will bring awareness to providing the homeless with some real options, other than being harassed out of areas and told to sleep in the day or in a public lighted place.

    Media coalitions aimed at homelessness
    San Diego should replicate the San Francisco Homeless Project

    In San Diego, as the July 12 All-Star Game approaches Mayor Kevin Faulconer has not formally announced any plan to relocate downtown homeless individuals. Instead, the SDPD oversees daily clear-outs of encampments and threatens to ďbring down the hammerĒ on faith-based groups that do food-share programs, while the city places rocks under bridges to discourage sleeping there. Itís been a shadow sweep.

    Been to 17th Street in East Village lately? The police sweep sizeable encampments there in the morning. The homeless pile their belongings into the proximal Neil Good Day Center, and then by evening return tents and tarps to the street. Whatís the endgame? Whatís the plan? Thereís ominous potential for confrontation there on 17th Street that hopefully wonít become violent or deadly.

    CB: Why donít women and children go into shelters?

    JC: Thereís too few shelters for women with children. St. Vincent de Paulís has a waiting list. Rescue Mission is not supposed to take more than 60 but they usually have more. The situation, from what Iíve been told, is awful; all these kids in one room; sick kids, babies with dirty diapers, crying. And then in the morning you have to take all of your stuff and leave, and wander around all day because there are no day centers for families, and then get back in line in the evening.

    This isn't the first time California has had a serial killer that focused on the homeless.

    Itzcoatl Ocampo killed four homeless men as well as a woman and her son in Orange County in 2012:
