Police ask: Are there others?
Similar slaying cases could help detectives
There could be more victims in a string of slayings of Las Vegas Valley prostitutes whose dismembered bodies were found along highways, a Las Vegas police detective said Friday.
Detective Larry Hanna implored law enforcement authorities in other jurisdictions to check for cases similar to those of four young women with ties to Las Vegas. The body parts of three of the women have been found off of highways in Las Vegas, California and Illinois, and a fourth woman who matches the descriptions of the others is missing.
Hanna said the women could have been slain by the same person, possibly a truck driver because of the proximity of the women to major highways.
“I’m not saying they’re connected, I’m saying there’s enough there that we in law enforcement need to work together and pay attention,” he said.
“As my sergeant says, ‘There are no coincidences in law enforcement.'” More from the ReviewJournal
