Chief Stanley McFadden made the announcement at a press conference, where he also revealed that police have identified a “person of interest” in connection with the five murders, but have not yet determined whether or whether this person is a suspect or a witness.
During a press conference, the Stockton police chief presented an image of a person of interest in five homicides, but he stressed that he does not know whether or not this person is a suspect or witness.
At the press conference, CBS13’s Laura Haefeli found that all five victims were unaccompanied when they were killed; they were ambushed; they were in poorly lighted areas; and neither drugs nor gangs played a role in the slayings.
When Laura questioned Chief McFadden about whether or not they should use the term “serial killer,” he confirmed that the killings fit the profile of a serial killer.
The police haven’t determined if there’s just one bad guy or a whole gang behind this.
