Brooklyn, NY – The NYC serial killer is apparently hunting down Middle Eastern men in Brooklyn shops whose addresses include the number “eight.” The NYC serial killer struck at the She She Boutique in Flatbush on Friday night, Bensonhurst on August 1 and Bay Ridge on July 6. The murder of three men in the Brooklyn, New York area were all committed with the same gun and bear other striking resemblances.
Investigators discovered after ballistics testing of .22-caliber gun shell casings found at the scene that the gun used in the Friday shooting matches the same one used in the two prior killings. The NYC serial killer made an attempt to partially obscure the bodies by clothing or, in one case, a box.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the New York Police Department believes the suspected NYC serial killer could be targeting Middle Eastern shop owners. All of the victims were also at least 59-years-old and were working alone, and the shops lacked surveillance cameras. The New York Police Department has yet to officially comment on the suspected NYC serial killer, but an unnamed source in the NYPD say they are looking at the number eight angle but are not any closer to finding the NYC serial killer because of it.
According to ABC, the FBI is now involved in the search for the number eight NYC serial killer. So far, there are no suspects. But detectives desire to question a man they are calling “John Doe Duffel Bag” who was spotted by surveillance cameras near the most recent incident at She She Boutique.
The FBI is working to put together a profile of the possible number eight NYC serial killer. Authorities are now offering a reward of up to $40,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the three homicides of the Middle Eastern men. Anyone with information about them may call the Crime Stoppers hotline in confidence at 1-800-577-TIPS.
