Mexican authorities fear serial killer of elderly in Mexico City

MEXICO CITY – Mexican authorities are looking for a possible serial killer in the recent slayings of elderly people in the capital, Mexico City Attorney General Bernardo Batiz said Tuesday.”We have a serious suspicion that there is a serial killer,” Batiz was quoted by the Mexican news media as saying. “We have some cases in which the similarity of behavior and modus operandi would indicate to us that this is feasible.”At least 24 elderly people have been slain in this capital of 8 million people since mid-2003, many of them inside their homes, according to the Mexican news media.Batiz said there were similar patterns in at least four of the homicides.Although some suspects have been detained, the crimes have continued.In the coming days, authorities will produce a police sketch of the possible serial killer and will distribute a brochure with recommendations on how the elderly can protect themselves from crime, Batiz said.Vail – Colorado
