LAPD arrests 72 yr old John Floyd Thomas Jr.-30 elderly female victims

The first wave of slayings haunted Los Angeles in the mid-1970s. The killer slipped mostly unseen through the night, preying on older women who lived alone. He raped them and squeezed their necks until they passed out or died. On the 17 who were killed, he placed pillows or blankets over their faces.

The second wave hit a decade later in Claremont -- five older women raped and strangled, faces again covered. (more at link)

Wowza.
The wheels of justice spin...slowly.
I hope that some of the women's families will be offered at least some closure...and I'm glad they caught him.

BTW, I find it a little ironic that he preyed on elderly women and then gets busted at the age of 72...

What a frightening looking individual!!
He should never have been released from prison (not because of his looks, because of the kinds of crimes he committed).
