    Looks like the manhunt's still ongoing as of 5 a.m. in England. Whitby, the site of the second body discovered, is directly north of London and five hours away - one has to jog a bit west to pick up the quickest route. I wonder where this alleged killer has gone to ground - or if he's taken himself out of the country entirely by now. Shocking case - here in the U.S. it's a bit par for the course, but a brutal double murder - apparently both victims selected at random - in a single English county - yikes. Not an everyday occurrence and the suspect looks like a bad bit of business. Hope all are safe behind locked doors in the UK.

    From the Mirror link above:
    This guy's out of control. More will die unless he's caught quickly.

    Still uncaught and it's afternoon in England. Worried that someone, somewhere, is lying dead while Allen holes up in their digs, still escaping capture.

    New element in the case:

    James Allen double murder manhunt: Suspect 'knew first victim' (BBC)

    So at least one killing might be described as not perfectly at random. The pensioner referred to above apparently did not know the second victim, so a link there with Allen has not been established. Praying they catch this guy. Extremely dangerous. The link between the two murders was the mountain bike, allegedly of Allen's, seen outside the residences of both of the victims.

    Telegraph nails it down a bit further: Alleged double killer James Allen is former next-door neighbour of victim, police reveal

    This is horrible, please let the police catch him soon. I hope that it doesn't end up as a Raoul Moat situation.

    A man being hunted by police after he was suspected of killing two people in their own homes has been arrested. James Allen, 36, was arrested in south Leeds at 07:20 BST and is being held on suspicion of murder.

    Yes, just had a Google alert in my email upon arising this a.m. Good job LE. Taken down before he could kill more, knock on wood for luck that he didn't and they just haven't found a body yet. True life term for him, no parole, methinks.
