and nearby Irving Two were shot one was stabbed and one was strangled Each was found in a differ ent location all far from the others Yet Dallas police who have assigned more than 20 officers to the case are convinced the same person was behind at least three of the slay ings And they fear he is ready to kill again and not necessarily another prostitute We feel theres a great danger out there to the said Dallas homi cide Sgt Larry Lewis a leader of a multidivisional task force aimed at catching the suspect who remained at large Thursday Hes apparently murdering people for no motive Its an indication that he could be killing for recreation When you have that type of individual on the streets everybody is in Lewis didnt want to jeopardize the case by divulging too many details about links between the seemingly unrelated cases but he guaranteed the evidence is convincing I will say theres some aspects in the physical evidence were examin Lewis said declining to reveal whether that evidence involved the condition of the corpses or items found at the scene The first victim 31yearold Lacheke Grandberry of Irving was found strangled Oct 6 along an over grown path on a northwest Dallas nature trail On Dec 3 32yearold Alysia Hes apparently murdering people for no motive Its an indication that he could be killing for Sgt Larry Lewis Dallas homicide officer Beasley was found stabbed to death in a West Dallas park Last Friday city workers found the body of 23yearold Ida Gee along the side of a South Dallas road She had been shot to death The possible fourth victim Staci Terrell 25 was found shot in the head behind a retirement village on Nov 11 We feel the strongest about the link between the ones that have occurred in Lewis said We cant make a direct determination yet on the Irving We feel very strongly about it Irving police did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press on Thursday seeking comment HEY Teen Dance sponsored by KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
