It seems the brazen Seminole Heights serial killer may have struck again in Tampa, Florida after a fourth victim was found dead on the roadway. Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan announced they are treating the case as if it is related to the previous three murders,
"We think by their proximity and the manner it was done, they are linked. We’re saying it’s related to the other Seminole Heights murders." Authorities believe the killer is still in the area and they want local residents to stay in their houses.
The level of cunning this killer has shown has been unmatched by police so far, even after cordoning off a perimeter police have been unable to catch this mysterious killer.
A hint of desperation could be detected on the side of law enforcement as even camouflaged FBI agents went door to door searching through backyards, conversing with homeowners and walking through houses in an effort to identify the killer.
Eight schools in Seminole Heights were locked down as a safety measure for part of Tuesday morning but were lifted around 10 a.m. with the exception of the closest school to the crime scene, Edison Elementary.
Seminole Heights gun owners are also asking people to verify their guns location and report any missing. The entire community has been on high alert after the string of murders left three victims dead within a mile of each other, 22-year-old Benjamin Mitchell, 32-year-old Monica Hoffa and 20-year-old Anthony Naiboa.
Authorities are seeking help from the public and anyone with information is being asked to call Tampa police at (813) 231-6130.
