Back in June when the LA Weekly proclaimed that a serial killer had preyed on ten Los Angeles-area prostitutes, the paper fingered its favored suspect sitting in a Fresno jail. Well, through DNA testing he has been ruled out as a suspect in any of the murders that might be the doing of a serial killer or killers, the Weekly reports on its website.
“It is definitely not Hausmann,” said Inglewood Detective Jeffrey Steinhoff. “We are back to square one.”
Law enforcement officials still believe the murder spree to be the work of one person. “It isn’t solved,” said Captain Ed Winter, who supervises the L.A. County coroner’s serial homicide team. “Obviously there is still someone out there.”
