Serial Killer Claims There Are More Victims

green_river_killer_2013OLYMPIA, Wash. — Authorities in Washington state voiced skepticism Wednesday about a claim by Gary Ridgway, the “Green River Killer,” that he can help find the bodies of more of his victims.

The serial killer made the statement to Seattle-based KOMO Newsradio in a telephone interview posted Tuesday to the outlet’s website, where he said the total number of victims is 75 to 80.

Ridgway was convicted a decade ago of 48 murders, mostly of young women who were prostitutes or runaways, with an additional murder conviction added in 2011. He committed the bulk of the killings in the 1980s in areas around Seattle, but some of his slayings there continued into the 1990s.
