Alberta RCMP to address media about 4 deaths in 1970s, possible link to serial killer

Alberta RCMP say their investigators now believe the deaths of four young women in the 1970s may be linked to “a now-deceased serial sexual offender and killer.”

In a news release issued Thursday, the RCMP said its historical homicide unit believes “there may be more unsolved homicides related to this individual.”

Police said they “tentatively” plan to hold a news conference at Alberta RCMP headquarters in Edmonton at 11:30 a.m. local time on Friday to speak to media about their investigation.
