It appears this might be a big week for serial killer cold cases. First, a California woman yesterday claimed her dad was the infamous Zodiac killer, now CNN reports that police have linked 72-year-old John Floyd Thomas Jr. to a couple of Los Angeles murders that happened over 30 years ago. Police further indicated that Thomas could be connected to "as many as 30 murders and dozens of rapes during the 1970s and 1980s", crimes which appear to have targeted older women.
Indeed, the L.A. Times noted that "'When all is said and done, Mr. Thomas stands to be Los Angeles' most prolific serial killer,'" according to an LAPD Robbery-Homicide Cold Case detective. John Floyd Thomas had previously been convicted of sexual assault, but was arrested last month for the murder of two elderly women in the 1970's.
