CRIMENew York City's unidentified serial killerTerrence Levinson
- Why, if a story "bleeds it leads", have none of the major news outlets addressed the serial killer in New York City?
Three weeks ago 23 year old Mohit Choudhury was found dead of two precise knife wounds in Washington Heights. Four weeks before that police identified 37 year old Melissa Huynh, also the victim of a two-strike stabbing. Much like 57 year old Robert Goldfarb, a realtor in Queens who was found dead of, you guessed it, two stab wounds a little over a week before.
Stabbings aren't uncommon. Fatal stabbings, all of which consist of one strike to the leg and another to the neck, are not.
According to sources, in the last eight months there have been 19 homicides that fit this "two-strike kill" pattern. For comparison, in 2010 NYC had 523 homicides. If the stabbing deaths of these 19 victims are the work of a serial killer, a single individual is already responsible for almost 4% of last year's death rate. And they've been happening in every borough.
Don't take my word for it: These assaults are clearly recorded on Spotcrime.com's New York map
