Kensington Strangler

There seems to be another serial killer in the North East. This one is in Kensington Pennsylvania.
There have been 2 deaths and 3 other violent assaults. The murders have been linked through DNA.
The first Kensington victim – 21-year-old Elaine Goldberg – was found strangled on Nov. 3 in a lot on Ruth Street. On Nov. 13, 35-year-old Nicole Piacentini was discovered blocks away at an abandoned building.
Their families said both victims had struggled with drug addiction. DNA evidence determined the women were killed by the same man.

The FBI has gotten involved and are working on a profile as well as providing forensic assistance.

The police are doing all that they can, but as in many cases where prostitutes and the homeless are being targeted by a serial criminal, the public is reluctant to help the police.

Deputy Police Commissioner William Blackburn said police had arrested more than 100 men in the area on charges of soliciting prostitutes and had taken DNA swabs from many of them. Most of those results are pending.
Blackburn said the department had gotten calls from the public, but that police needed a major break in the case.
“It’s frustrating for the department,” he said. “It’s frustrating for the investigators. There are a lot of different units working on this, doing all they can, and we were hoping by this time we would have this person in cuffs.”
With the “no snitching” street ethos, good witnesses are rare, Shane said. Prostitutes and addicts are especially reluctant to speak to police, he said, even when they are potential victims.
“The perception isn’t that you’re trying to help catch a serial killer,” he said. “It’s that you’re diming somebody out.”

The Guardian Angels are also there helping. As Curtis says, maybe someone that wont talk with the police will talk with them.

There is a video that shows a person that the police say might be the killer.

Right now it sounds like the guy might want to turn himself in to avoid being killed by the locals!

He is being described as a black male early 20’s 5’7 170 lbs with a distinctive walk. He is supposed to have told a victim that his name is Anthony

There was also a false reporting on Facebook that said that he had been identified, he has NOT. The page has removed the photo that was published there.


Bill to end federal income support for incarcerated seniors passed by Canadian Senate


By Shadi Elien, December 14, 2010

A bill that will cut off federal income support for incarcerated seniors was passed today (December 14) in the Canadian Senate.

The Harper government introduced the legislation in June after news that serial killer Clifford Olson was receiving more that $1,100 a month in federal benefits while imprisoned for the murder of 11 children in B.C. in the early 1980s.

Human Resources Minister Diane Finley, who denounced the federal payments to imprisoned seniors as “offensive and outrageous”, said in a news release today that, “It is wrong that convicted killers like Clifford Olson were receiving taxpayers’ entitlements such as Old Age Security.”

Olson has threatened to sue the government if the bill passes.

The new law will prevent 400 senior citizens serving sentences of two years or more in federal penitentiaries from receiving monthly Old Age Security and Guaranteed Income Supplement cheques.

The government is also negotiating with the provinces to cut off benefits for inmates serving less than two years in provincial jails.

Finley has estimated an annual savings of $2 million by ending benefits for federal prisoners and up to $10 million once provincial prisoners are included.

The government doesn’t expect much resistance from the provinces, as most already deny provincial benefits to jailed seniors.

Upon their release, prisoners would be allowed to apply for benefits.

Olson is going to sue? How dare he.
He is going to use tax payer money to sue the tax payers!
There has to be a way to stop sickos from abusing society further.
I am happy that the Canadian Government has done this though.
