CHICAGO-some have been rap, others were beat: Dozens of cases of women who were strangled or asphyxiated remain unsolved. CBS 2 Investigator Pam Zekman reports that questions are being raised about whether serial killers may be on loose in CHICAGO. Since 2001, their bodies have been found in vacant lots, abandoned buildings, and alleys. Some were dumped in garbage cans, and some even set on fire; all of them strangle. It is horrible, it horrible, said Audry Blinstrup, sister of murder victim Gwendolyn Williams. It could be anybodys family, not just my sister. She keeps us away from the streets and she keeps streets away from us, says Blinstrup. She was our protector. It was Williams who needed protection in 2002. Her body was found in the 4800 block of North Sheridan, half dressed and covered in blood; with drugs and alcohol in her system, along with semen from recent sexual activity. There was also stranger skin under her nails. She was fighting for her life, said Sharon Pritchett, Williams ' other sister. Whatever was going with her, she was not going to go down without a fight. For years, two sisters have been fighting for police to catch Killer. She was a very valuable human being, Pritchett say. I know they probably didnt see that in her, but we saw that in her, and we love her very much. 2 Investigators asked the Murder Accountability Project to review more than 50 unsolved strangulation and asphyxiation cases dating back to 2001. The group known as MAP has a knack for finding patterns in unsolved murder cases using computer algorithm. It is essentially a serial Killer detector, and for many years our algorithm has been signaling red alerts about a series of strangulations in CHICAGO, said Murder Accountability Project Director Thomas Hargrove. Hargrove showed 2 investigators how he plotted more than 50 unsolved cases since 2001. Overall, there are three killing fields: South Side, Far South Side and Chicagos West Side, say Hargrove. Theres pattern to who is dying. Disproportionately, these women have a history of sex work and a history of illegal drugs, classic pattern in serial killers. Cases drop off in 2014, suggesting to Hargrove that Killer might have been in jail at that time. Then the pattern start again in March of 2017, and continue with vengeance in 2018, according to Hargrove. Over those two years, Diamond Turner, Catherine Saterfield Buchanan, Valerie Marie Jackson, Lora Dawn Harbin, and Nicole Lynell Ridge were kill. Ridge is still memorialize in an alley near 23 W. 104 Pl. Near the abandoned garage where her body was find. All women were strangled and all were declared homicides by medical examiner. Reo Renee Holyfield was also found dead in September of 2018, but her case is in limbo. CHICAGO Streets and Sanitation workers found her in a garbage container near 525 W. 95. The Holyfields autopsy report says circumstances suggest the death could have been homicide by asphyxiation.

The Craigslist Ripper

In the upcoming Netflix film Lose Girls, Mari Gilbert becomes enrage after police and media only refer to her missing daughter Shannan Gilbert along with several dead women found along the southern shore of Long Island in demeaning ways. In the film, her character complains that when women are talked about, if they are talked about at all, it's 'prostitute, ' hooker, ' sex worker, ' escort. ' Never 'friend, ' sister, ' mother, ' daughter. Relatives of these friends, sisters, mothers and daughters connect with one another as investigators begin to realize that there was Killer on loose. An Elusive murderer, or murderers, know as Long Island Serial Killer, Gilgo Beach Killer, and Craigslist Ripper have been officially tied by law enforcement to the slayings of 10 people. There were an additional six bodies, including Shannan's found around Long Island beaches, that have not been officially linked to serial killings, but theories have been put forth that their deaths could also be connect. While the circumstances surrounding Shannan's death remain unclear, one thing is certain: her May 1 2010 disappearance heralded the grim discovery that Serial Killer had been dumping bodies along Gilgo Beach on Long Island. All the while, families of victims fight to make sure that their slain relatives are remembered as more than sex workers. Theyre not here to defend themselves, so I have to do it, Lorraine Ela, mother of one of the victims said at a memorial for several victims in 2012, longisland. Com report at time. Shannan's sister Sarra Gilbert told CBS News' 48 Hours back in 2011 that she felt like her sister was being unfairly judged by police. She echoes her mother's sentiment put forth in the new movie. I believe they judge her by her profession and not as a person, she say. Not as missing sister, missing aunt. They're just, 'Oh, missing prostitute. ' Here are all the victims that have been linked to this heinous string of killings, starting with ten victims that law enforcement has officially said were killed by the Long Island Serial Killer. The first four victims were found to have given moniker Gilgo Four by law enforcement.

The Monster of the Andes

While the United States has more serial killers than any other nation, some of the most brutal murderers the world has ever seen come from the Southern Hemisphere. They've leave hundreds of bodies of children, women and men in their wake, along the way earning grim nicknames like Monster, beast, and sadist as the public grapple with their repulsive crimes. Some of these killers target poor, indigenous women and children who live on the margins of society, police making horrifying situation even worse by failing to properly investigate deaths of victims. While citizens were outraged by grisly crimes, many of the country's judicial systems were not structured in a way to handle such gruesome acts, with maximum sentences that do not come close to letting punishment fit crime-like child murderer who go free after just 14 years. Here, eight of the most terrifying serial killers from South America.

The West Mesa Bone Collector

Between 2003 and 2006, at least 19 girls and women disappeared on streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Most of them were Latina sex workers in their 20s, and for years, no one knew what happened to them. Then in February 2009, resident walking her dog in Albuquerques West Mesa Area made a horrifying discovery: bone resembling a human femur was sticking out of the ground. Investigators dug into the site on West Mesa near 118 Street SW and discovered there wasnt just one person bury there. Over the next year, Albuquerque Police Department identified bones of 11 girls and women who disappeared between 2003 and 2005. Their group burial suggest Serial Killer, who was later named West Mesa Bone Collector, was responsible for their murders. Yet in the decade since discovery, investigators still do know who killed them; and they still haven't found eight other missing women, who disappeared in 2003, 2005 and 2006. Female prostitutes are more likely to be murdered than other women, and they have a much higher chance of being murdered by a Serial Killer, according to a 2006 study published in Journal of Forensic Sciences. There are many reasons for this, including the accessibility of sex workers on Street and internet, and the fact that many communities already see sex workers as a problem that should go away. 49 girls and women murdered by Gary Ridgway, Green River Killer, in Washington state in the 1980s and 90s didnt receive anywhere near the same level of public attention and sympathy as college students Ted Bundy murdered in the same state in the 1970s. Of 11 girls and women discovered at West Mesa, only one who wasnt sex worker or sex trafficking victim was 15-year-old Jamie Barela. She was last seen with her 27-year-old cousin Evelyn Salazar, whose remains were also discovered in West Mesa. In addition to Barela, investigators discovered remains of another 15-year-old named Syllannia Edwards, only black girl identified at the West Mesa site. Other women were Veronica Romero, age 28; Monica Candelaria, 22; Victoria Chavez, 26; Doreen Marquez, 24; Virginia Cloven, 24; Julie Nieto, 24; Cinnamon Elks, 32; and Gina Michelle Valdez, 22, who was four months pregnant. Christine Barber, executive director of Safe Streets New Mexico in Albuquerque, was shocked by the 2009 discovery of 11 victims because she hadnt even known so many girls and women were missing. Friends and family of victims had reported them as missing persons to the Albuquerque Police Department, but Barber doesnt recall the Department alerting the City that so many girls and women had disappeared off streets. I happen to be sitting with another group of volunteers, when news broke of the West Mesa murders, Barber tell & E Real Crime. And one of the women there, Cindy Jaramillo, said she knew all too well what was going on.

Authorities believe the same man was responsible for killing six people in five Midwestern cities in April and May of 1992. Four of the killings occurred in strip malls along Interstate 70, two in Missouri, two in Indiana. The other two victims were at Bridal Shop near Interstate 35 in Wichita, Kan. Killers victims include Sarah Hart Blessing, 1973 graduate of Shawnee Heights High School at Tecumseh. Blessing, 37, was fatally shot on May 7 1992, at the retail store where she worked in Raytown, MO. Another victim was Nancy Kitzmiller, 24, who work at Boot Village in. Charles, MO., Near. LOUIS. Customers found her body in the back room of a small store. Charles Police on Wednesday provided previously unreleased information in hopes of generating new leads. Lt. David Senter said that based on ballistic evidence and witness statements, weapon was. 22-caliber gun, possibly Intratec Scorpion or Erma Werke Model ET 22. Ammunition was CCI brand. 22-caliber Long rifle, copper-clad lead bullets. Senter says the case remains open, even if finding Killer all these years later is something of a longshot. Investigators met with the family last week, Senter say. That bring it home because they are still around, still here. It is a constant thing for them. Nancy Kitzmillers ' father, Don Kitzmiller, didnt have a listed phone number. But he recently tell. LOUIS Post-Dispatch pain remain. It is not cold to us, Kitzmiller say. It happened yesterday to us. Losing a child is something you never get over. Police cite common factors in all six killings. All victims work at small shops near Interstates, mostly businesses with just employee or two, Senter say. Five of the victims were women and police believe Killer mistook the lone male, who wear his hair long, for a woman. All six were shot in head. In most cases, small amount of money was take, though police say the robbery was incidental. Killing was motivation, no doubt in my mind, said Lt. Mike Hennessey, Wichita detective assigned to the case. The spree began on April 8 1992, in Indianapolis, where 26-year-old Robin Fuldauer was killed at PayLess Shoe Store. Three days later, Patricia Magers, 32, and Patricia Smith, 23, were shot to death at La Bridal Shop in Wichita. The lone male victim, 40-year-old Michael McCown, was killed at his shop, Sylvias Ceramics, in Terre Haute, Ind., On April 27 1992. Kitzmiller was killed on May 3rd 1992. Four days later, on the other side of Missouri, Blessing was shot to death at Store of Many Colors in Raytown, gift Shop near Kansas City. It starts and ends very quickly, Hennessey say. It just happens in such a short period of time and he seemed to pick his victims very carefully. Something set him off.

The Smiley Face killers

But two retired New York detectives claim they were deliberately killed by someone with a grudge creepy Smiley Face graffiti was found at the scene of at least a dozen tragedies. And timings with some deaths on the same day in different states lead to astonishing claim network of serial killers was working together across the US.

And some who were caught...

Golden State Killer was a notorious Serial Murderer who dodged justice for four decades. But earlier this year, retired cop James DeAngelo was arrested after DNA identified him as a suspect in 12 murders and 50 rapes across California from 1976 to 1986. Serial Street Shooters terrorise Phoenix, Arizona, killing nine and wounding three in random gun attacks in 2015 and 2016. Aaron Saucedo, 24, is awaiting trial and faces the death penalty, but his lawyers say he denies the charges. Last month, Samuel Little, 78, already jailed for three killings, confessed to more than 90 unsolved murders across the US from 1970 to 2005, making him America's worst Serial Killer. Cases had not previously been linked but the FBI confirmed at least 35 of his claimed murders appear genuine after he gave detailed descriptions.

The Original Night Stalker

For decades, Killer was on loose in California, terrorizing victims from the Southern coast to the Central Valley to the Bay Area and tidy subdivisions near Sacramento. As years went by, he bore his way into States consciousness, provoking manhunts and television shows, and obsessive sleuthing of amateur detectives. He went by many nicknames East Area Rapist, Original Night Stalker, Visalia Ransacker before the last one took hold: Golden State Killer. The final accounting of his crime spree was 13 known murders and nearly 50 rapes. Crimes began in 1975 and the case, finally, reached its denouement on Monday in hearing inside the ballroom at Sacramento State University that, because of the pandemic, was livestreamed. Joseph James DeAngelo, 74, no longer an agile young man who snuck into women's homes, had to be helped up when the Judge entered the room. He was wearing an orange prison jumpsuit and a plastic face shield and was surrounded by District attorneys from several jurisdictions where he committed his crimes. Hearing goes on for hours, as Mr. DeAngelo, who was captured two years ago after being arrested using a novel DNA technique that has upend how many violent crimes are now solved in the United States, pleads guilty, again and again, to 13 counts of first-degree murder that he committed across California in 1970s and 80s. In front of victims and their families, Amy Holliday, Sacramento County Deputy District Attorney, announced the plea arrangement, which takes the death penalty off the table in exchange for guilty pleas that result in 11 consecutive life sentences. In addition, she say, he also agreed to admit guilt in multitude of crimes for which he was not charge, some of which had passed statute of limitations. Throughout the hearing, prosecutors from counties across California approached the podium and described a series of murders, rapes and burglaries in detail. Michael G. Bowman, Judge for Sacramento County Superior Court, then asked Mr. DeAngelo for his plea. The Judge then asked whether he admitted the circumstances of crime. I admit, he say, over and over. Ask by the Judge if he understood he would receive 11 consecutive life sentences without parole, Mr. DeAngelo said yes. The Hearing was held in the ballroom in part to accommodate in-person attendance amid the coronavirus pandemic. Mr. DeAngelo and his lawyers wore transparent face shields. After speaking, Judge Bowman put on a black face mask. The prosecutors ' decision to take a plea deal rather than go to jury trial was driven in part by public health risks, Ms. Holliday said at the start. A preliminary hearing was originally scheduled for May, she say, but it had to be postponed because of court closures and dangers of bringing elderly or high-risk individuals into the courtroom. The advanced age of many of the key players involved also plays a role. Many of the victims, witnesses and law enforcement are in their 80s and 90s, she say.
