CHICAGO (CBS) — More than 50 women have been killed by strangulation in Chicago going back to 2001. The CBS 2 Investigators have highlighted patterns that some say suggest a serial killer could be behind the murders.
Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said right now there is just not enough information to say a serial killer or killers are responsible for strangling the women, but until arrests are made their families will continue pushing.
Flyers with names and locations of the tragedies are posted near the spots where Chicago women were found strangled and left for dead in alleys, abandoned lots and trash cans.
