US citizen on the run after killing several prostitutes after having sex in Mexico, officials say
Authorities in Mexico say they are searching for a possible American serial killer who is believed to have attacked at least three sex workers across the border in Tijuana, according to reports.
Baja California Attorney General Ricardo Carpio said at a news conference that the suspect is believed to be hiding somewhere in San Diego, California, and that investigators are working with their U.S. counterparts to locate -lo, according to NBC San Diego.
“If someone threatens the lives of our citizens, of our women, then they are going to have a serious problem with our justice system,” he said.
“It worked in terms of information sharing between our homicide department and the institution’s strategy department. They were able to determine that this suspect preys on vulnerable and lonely victims and lures them in with lies,” added Carpio.
