    Police have found a 5th body of a woman in the north part of the city. They think there might be a serial killer of black women out there.

    Thanks you guys. Dunno what my prob. is. Now I can't find my toolbar at all. Somehow it was showing on top. I like it on the bottom. So, I don't know what I did. Guess I inadverdantly changed it and now I don't know how to fix it.

    From what I read I would say, yes, Houston has a serial.It also seems he has escalated as the number of attacks is quite frequent, assuming he did all of them.

    I wonder if this is a transplanted Katrina evacuee? I know some pretty bad apples landed in Houston after the hurricane. A lot of them were sex offenders who never registered once they were bounced.

    I hate to say it but it very well could be an evacuee. Our crime rate has soared even though it's always been high as I'm sure the crime rate in other cities that took a high concentration of evacuees has soared.

    Hi Kato, Don't feel bad as I'm having the same problem too. When I Google something I have no address bar on top from which to take the link. I've tried everything under 'view' and for the life of me don't know what is wrong! Guess I'll call my computer guy where I bought my 'puter.

    That's exactly my prob. No address bar. But I'm not gonna bother IT with it. You'd think after working on a puter day after day for years I'd know something that simple.

    Concern grows over possible serial killer




    (7/20/06 - KTRK/HOUSTON) - Residents on the northwest side are worried that a serial killer may be targeting their area.

    Also on ABC13.com:
    Send news tips | RSS | ABC13 E-lert | Info mentioned on air | Search abc13.comThis, after a woman's body was found in the woods on Duoto near Tidwell in the Acres Homes area. Five other murdered women have been discovered in the same area over the past six months. In this latest case, two people cleaning a parking lot found the woman's body Wednesday afternoon.



    This sketch was released after one of the murders in the area.



    "It's awfully suspicious that we have another dead woman in this part of the city, in an area where we've had several others over the course of the last six to eight months," said Sgt. Mike Peters with the Houston Police Department.

    The victim had been stabbed at least three times and police say the murder bears similarities to previous homicides.

    Police released a sketch of a man they believe murdered Pamela Goss back in April in the same area. They believe he also has a tattoo showing the scales of justice or a Libra sign on the inside of his left forearm. If you have any information, call police.
