Homeless in Las Vegas fear a serial killer is stalking them | The …

LAS VEGAS — Peter LaPrairie woke up Sunday morning after a night of cold winds whipped through his sleeping bag near the highway. He walked — maybe a mile — toward D Street, where tents and shopping carts were hemmed along a fence like a snowdrift of forgotten humanity.

Being homeless was not the life he planned. But there were things to be thankful for. Like the warm sun on his face.

And that he had survived the night without being shot.

Like most everyone in the area, he knew a killer was out there. Coldblooded, a police officer had told reporters.

“I’m not very social and like to be on my own,” said LaPrairie, 46, standing outside a used tire shop. “But right now, that’s not an option. I try to find

Meg Gardiner describes a serial killer stalking I-35 — and boy are we glad this is fiction

It was a lot of fun. I have lived in Austin for several years and I love it here. But I must confess that I am a native Oklahoman. So I will always be an outsider on some level. If I ever start cheering for the Longhorns, my Sooner relatives will cross the Red River and stage an intervention. 

But it was fun for me that Caitlin, the heroine, gets to experience Texas the way I did when I was learning to live here. 

One delicious throwaway line was about hotel waffles in the shape of the Lone Star State. 

But it’s true! That’s what you get as the complimentary breakfast. You’ve got to sing “Deep in the Heart of Texas” while you pour the syrup. 

After having created two series characters (five books with Evan Delaney and four with Jo Beckett), what compelled you to launch the UNSUB series with Caitlin? 

The simple answer

Stalking a serial killer

Seven innocent people dead – including two children – a town ripped apart and a police force baffled: Welcome to the town of Maryvale, Arizona, where a serial killer has gone un-captured for almost a year with no sign of being found – despite his daring and gruesome attacks on ordinary strangers.

Phoenix photographer Jesse Rieser decided to travel to the town, heavily populated by immigrants, where a killer still potentially roams free, after hearing about the mysterious spate of murders at the hands of the ‘Phoenix Serial Street Shooter’ or the ‘Monster of Maryvale’. 

The gunman has already claimed the lives of multiple victims aged from 12 to 55, injured two others and attempted to shoot at least two more.

Paranoia – high among residents amid heightened anti-immigrant sentiment nationally – is naturally even higher now, given Maryvale residents are living with the fact

Smiley face killers may be stalking college men

ALBANY, New York (CNN) — At the age of 21, Christopher Jenkins appeared to have everything going for him. The University of Minnesota senior was good-looking, had a near perfect grade-point average and had a future in business.

Christopher Jenkins, 21, vanished on Halloween 2002. Four years later, police ruled his death a homicide.

Then, suddenly, he vanished.

He was last seen celebrating Halloween at a bar in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 2002. Jenkins’ friends said he left about midnight. Four months later, his body was found in the Mississippi River, still wearing his Halloween costume.

Minneapolis police classified the drowning as accidental.

Jenkins’ blood-alcohol level was well above the legal limit, and police told his parents that he’d probably had too much to drink after bar -hopping with friends. They
