'Baltimore police are forming a squad to investigate the recent strangulations of five women, including the stepdaughter of a former police commissioner.'

To date at least 5 area women have been strangled by an as yet unknown assailant. msot of the women are believed to have been involved in prostitution in their recent past.

Hmmm...me thinks there is a serial killer afoot but then with such facts who would not?

So much for the notion that serial killers mostly white. In fact proportionatley they are more likely to be black. That old wives tail was based on the fact that murderers preying on blacks or other minorities were not investigated in an organized manner. Until recently that is. And let us never, never, ever forget that America's most evil and numericaly accomplished killer- Coral Watts- was black in his color and even more so in his heart. On second thought reptiles like him had no heart. Thank goodness he died in prison.

Coral Watts is suspected of killing over 100 women which would make him the most prolific serial killer in the US. Sorry, but he was black!

Serial murder lends itself nicely to the analytical methods developed here provided suitable data are available. Only a few systematic accounts of the race and ethnicity of serial killers exist. There is an exhaustive study of African American serial killers (Homicide Studies 2005; 9; 271) by criminologist Anthony Walsh, and also Eric W. Hickey's book, Serial killers and their victims, Brooks/Cole, 1997. That's about it.

Walsh identified 90 African American and 323 white American serial murderers, all men operating between 1945 and 2004.(Though Asians, Hispanics and Native Americans were not included in the study, their addition would not alter the fact that most serial killers are white men.) African American serial killers made up 22% of Walsh's sample, a figure in close agreement Hickey's enumeration. But, as blacks number well below 22% of the U.S. population, they are actually overrepresented among the ranks of serial killers -- roughly by a factor of 2.

So, why are most serial killers white men? The short answer is that serial murder is primarily a male enterprise, and in the U.S. white men outnumber black men seven to one. The long answer, however, is instructive
