4th slaying in Tampa could be linked to serial killer

14 November 2017

The Tampa Police Department is investigating a suspicious death Tuesday morning in the Seminole Heights neighborhood, where fears of a possible serial killer gripped the community last month.

Police said the body was found shortly before 5 a.m. near North Nebraska Avenue and East McBerry Street.

The man was shot just blocks from a memorial honoring the three victims killed in the Seminole Heights neighborhood.

Police said they believe the killer was still in the area, and asked residents to stay in their homes while they conducted a search.

Hegarty said that investigators are treating the death as related to the three recent unsolved murders in Seminole Heights.

A massive police presence descended on the neighborhood, and as of 7:30 a.m., many streets had been closed, according to NBC News affiliate WFLA.
