Child’s Rape and Murder Sparks Fears of Serial Killer in Pakistan, 2 Killed in Violent Protests

Lahore: Protests broke out across Pakistan on Thursday after the rape and murder of a 7-year-old girl in a district south of Lahore, due to public anger at what is seen as the authorities’ failure to investigate such cases.

It is the 12th such murder in the town of Kasur in a year, and has raised concern that a serial killer may be on the loose.

Two people were killed on Wednesday when police fired at angry protesters in Kasur, and a local resident said schools, offices, and markets remained shut in the town on Thursday.

Demonstrations were held in all cities between Faisalabad in the northeast down to Pakistan’s southern metropolis of Karachi.

In Lahore, the provincial capital of the state where Kasur is located, protesters blocked a major road connecting the two, causing traffic between them to be suspended.

Police recovered the body of Zainab Ansari from a garbage dumpster in Kasur

Police are intensifying their search for a suspected serial killer in Tampa, Florida, after a fourth person was shot and killed.

Police are treating these cases as related.

Felton was walking along Nebraska Avenue in Tampa early Tuesday morning when police say he was shot from behind, reports CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann. According to police, one witness reported hearing gunshots and looked up to see a man running from the scene.

One move seen in video offers key clue amid Tampa serial killer fears

Tampa, Florida, police hope that new surveillance video will lead them closer to identifying a possible serial killer. The footage shows a “person of interest” running from one of three murder scenes. The three victims were shot and killed, just days apart.

Police have been sifting through hours of surveillance footage after urging homeowners in this neighborhood with security cameras to turn over any video of suspicious activity, reports CBS News correspondent DeMarco Morgan.

“We believe that this person has ties to this neighborhood,” said Tampa police chief Brian Dugan.

That “person of interest” is seen in a surveillance video running from the spot where Benjamin Mitchell was murdered. He was shot just seconds earlier.

“I have come up with four reasons why this person is running. One, they may be late for dinner. Two, they’re out exercising. Three, they heard gunshots. And number four,
