Officials Discuss Potomac River Rapist

Transcript Investgations like this take a lot of time
and a lot of pieces come together. And so the missing piece could be something that
an individual knows. We need people to come forward with whatever information they have,
no matter how significant they may think the information is. It’s never too late to bring justice to
the victims and thier families. We believe the individual who was responsible for these
attacks is still out there and we need the public’s help solve this case and hold him
accountable. In this case, the leads have gone cold. We
are approaching the Holiday season and the hope is that if the subject has traveled away
from the area, that he may be coming back for a visit…and that family members or friends
or associates who live here may once again, come into an association with this person
and may come forward to law enforcement to help us identify the person who was perpetrating
these crimes. Somebody knows who this is; someone has seen
suspicious activity; somebody was privy to a conversation , whether it was first-hand
or second-hand; somebody heard or saw or knows something and its that person who we need
to call. This person would enter upon a residence,
these crimes occurred inside the victims’s residence. They were women who were either
home alone or home alone with young children. Once he was inside it would be like a blitz
attack, in all of these cases he covered their head with either a blanket or pillow case
and then would commit his crimes. There’s no piece of information thats too
small or any information that we would be interested in looking into.those are the things
that sometimes fill the holes and will bring this case together. So we would like for anyone
with any information or any idea on who this person might be to contact their local police
department or the FBI. Once we became aware of the association of
the crimes in Montgomery county, where they were occurring and where our murder occurred,
we definately began to think that he was familiar with one or both areas… he lived in one
and worked in the other or worked and lived in both. But he knew both areas pretty well,
as none of them are what you would call, on the beaten path. We know that especially being over there in
the Georgetown University area, people come and go, students come and go, and especially
being near friends and family around the holidays, that it will jog someones memory.
