There he bagged between two and four more women using once again his signature .22 automatic pistol.

According to a study by Tom Petee, director of criminology and criminal justice at Auburn University, at least 25 percent of serial killers strangle their victims.

Petee theorizes that the victims may have known the killer or were relaxed enough -- possibly due to drug use -- to let him get close.
