I saw this news account from Hartford, Connecticut about a guy being arrested and charged with the murder of an 11 year old girl in Florida in 1996. What other similar cases might be linked to him? If there are others (and there probably are others) then having a list of others available to police interrogators might be helpful. Any missing children which fit the description, location, time frame, or circumstances might have been victims of this guy.

Hartford - A database of DNA from convicted sex offenders has linked a Connecticut man to the rape and killing of an 11-year-old girl in Florida almost 10 years ago, police said yesterday.

Robert S. Mitchell, 43, of New Britain was charged Wednesday with being a fugitive from justice and was expected to be extradited to Florida to face charges after a hearing yesterday.

The body of sixth-grader Cherie Morrisette of Jacksonville, Fla. was found Dec. 8, 1996, in the St. John's River about 10 miles from the apartment she shared with her mother and sister.
