US citizen on the run after killing several prostitutes after having sex in Mexico, officials say

Authorities in Mexico say they are on the hunt for a possible American serial killer believed to have attacked at least three sex workers just across the border in Tijuana, reports have said.

Baja California Attorney General Ricardo Carpio said at a news conference that the suspect is believed to be hiding somewhere in San Diego, California, and that investigators are working with their U.S. counterparts to track him down, according to NBC San Diego.

“If someone threatens the lives of our citizens, our women, they will have a serious problem with our justice system,” he was quoted as saying.

“Work has been underway to share information between our homicide squad and the institution’s strategy department. They could see this suspect attacking vulnerable, lonely victims and luring them with lies,” Carpio added.
