Discussion in 'Serial Killers' started by Yoda, Oct 19, 2014.
Victim in hotel was 19yr old Afrika Hardy.
Threeebodies within a 4 mile radius. The initial victim, which prompted his arrest was 6 miles away. Od was decomposed.
Another victim named in this article-Anith Jones-there is a thread on here for her in the missing persons area.
This is a nightmare.
"Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. said in two Facebook posts Sunday afternoon that the man, who he called a serial killer, has “admitted to a couple of homicides in Hammond,” some of which date back 20 years. He also said in his posts that the man is a convicted sex offender."
Not sure who these "sources" are (so take with a grain of salt), but interesting nonetheless... (link:http://wgntv.com/2014/10/19/3-bodies-found-in-three-separate-homes-in-gary-in/)
Note: Afrikka spells her name with two Ks, I haven't seen MSM get it right yet.
ETA: I stand corrected, the CLTV article okiegranny linked prints her name correctly. I hadn't seen that one when I made my post. So she was pregnant...
I have started to post in scanner thread.......just in case-well-haven't posted any scanner tranx yet but maybe later?

From your link
"Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. called the person of interest a “serial killer” in a Facebook post Sunday afternoon and said he has “admitted to a couple of homicides in Hammond,” some of which date back two decades. He also said in his posts that the man is a convicted sex offender."
It really bugs me that this man was a sex offender and they still did not keep an eye on him. What a fail IMO. They cant be so busy in Gary Indiana as to not be able to have some type of GOOD watch dogs on these sex offenders.....this just happens way too much IMO. (Sex offenders committing other crimes because they are not being watched well enough).
Actually, I meant to type homes and not home. Thank you for catching that!
They have not released the perp's name ? Classic! He didn't want to get any more sex charges so he started killing the victims. When will we learn there is no rehab for these people ?

Pregnant woman among victims of possible serial killer, mom says
The man in custody was a convicted sex offender in Austin, Texas, according to investigators.
Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson said several agencies are now on the case which could grow much larger as the suspect is questioned.
We have evidence that he was in Texas and all over the United States, she said. I would like them to complete the investigation and I dont want to taint it with the prospect of calling this person a serial killer.
Many of the victims may have been prostitutes and targeted by the killer, a source told WGN.
