Crime Solvers Tip Aids in Capture of East Coast Rapist

From Fairfax County:

  Crime Solvers programs around the region are applauding their role in a recent capture. An anonymous tip through Crime Solvers assisted police in the arrest of the highly sought-after “East Coast Rapist.” Detectives around the region and as far reaching as Rhode Island and Connecticut worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to create a website and billboard signs that ran up and down the east coast with pertinent information in a series of sexual assaults.

            More than 12 women and children were reportedly sexually assaulted by the same man. Those attacks began in Prince Georges County, MD in February, 1997. The suspect then attacked women in Fairfax County, VA, Leesburg, VA, Cranston, RI, New Haven, CT and Prince William County, VA. DNA in those cases all returned to the same suspect.
