Serial killings: Unsolved, and unpublicized, slayings of women fill FBI files
Authorities in Indiana and Ohio have launched investigations into suspected serial killings after a Scripps Howard News Service study of FBI computer files found many alarming clusters of unsolved homicides of women across the nation.
Also, police in Nevada confirm for the first time that they are hunting a likely serial killer who has targeted up to seven women, mostly prostitutes, and has scattered their partial remains across three states.
Many of the suspected serial killings detected in the study have never before been disclosed to the public.
All told, authorities in seven cities have confirmed that a statistical analysis of federal crime files conducted by Scripps has detected known - or strongly suspected - serial homicides in their communities.
