NYC Serial Killer Has Police Stumped

New York has had to bounce back from a lot of tragedy, including the recent devastation that Hurricane Sandy left behind. But when news gets out that the city has an unknown killer lurking in their midst, it’s difficult for even the most hardened New Yorker to wrap their mind around.

Police are now searching for a man they believe is responsible for the shooting deaths of three shopkeepers, which began in July with 65-year old Mohammed Gebeli and left off with 78-year old Vahidipour Rahmatollah last Friday. 59-year old Isaac Kadare was shot in the head in his 99 cent store in August. As more and more evidence points to the murders having been committed by the same person, a motive has so far eluded investigators. While they have acknowledged that each shooting has similar characteristics, officials don’t want to erupt the city into panic by dubbing the killings the work of a serial killer.

“The same gun was used in all three murders…it’s too soon to tell,” Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said. “There are similar things in each case, but that determination hasn’t been made yet.”

Each victim was covered up and moved away from the windows of their respective stores, possibly to buy more time for the killer. However, there are factors in each murder which don’t seem to add up to serial killer: one victim was stabbed in the neck as well as being shot in the head; two of the victims were robbed, while police say they aren’t sure yet if Rahmatollah was missing money from the cash register. Those inconsistencies could add up to a break in the case. For now, investigators have released a sketch of a suspect they found on surveillance cameras, saying he is a person of interest and that they would like to talk to him.

So far, the most unlikely clue seems to be the fact that each store address contained the number 8; police say they are treating it the same as any other piece of the puzzle.

“We’re definitely looking into the number-8 angle,” a law-enforcement source said. “But we’re not any closer to solving the case because of it.”

    • jessie

      What an ignorant statement to make. Just because the president you didn’t want to win won?!? Thats crazy! You probably would have said the samething for any black male, there is obviously no resemblance. You should think about the things you say, it only makes you look stupid.

  • Cody

    8, 8, 8, is great, 8 is the number I do not hate.

    • dave

    • Brianna

      Wow.. pretty bold of you to say it might be a Marine.. Just because some Marines do bad things, doesn’t mean its right for you to just throw that out there…

  • axl

    this guy still has along way to go if he wants to beat the king, ted bundy (not manson.) manson did not kill one person, his family did all the work.

  • Sal

    Inconsistencies in the beginning stages of a serial killer could merely mean he’s getting his pattern and methodology down. The fact that he stole money could just mean he needed the money to move on to the next target or to survive until he finds his next target. All names seem middle eastern, and the same gun has been used. Clearly this is the work of one man, without a map of the locations though I couldn’t even begin to guess or make a conjecture on where he might strike next. The more press he gets the more likely he’ll leave town, but that’s not a guarantee.

  • Boddy

    cant they call the Criminal Minds, Bones, and NCIS teams to sort it out?

  • Preston

    The layering of comments on top of web news coverage is a good way to get this person exposed. The newfound saturation of unfounded entitlement: that everyone deserves to achieve celebrity IS, in fact, a signal of sociopathic behavior…hmm. Things that make you go…think.

    Look at this video at the link above, it doesn’t look like the composite on this site at all…the serial killer looks middle eastern himself???

  • David Visser

    After having viewed the description of this individual, it doesn’t really look like one who is attempting to be classified as a serial killer, more of a hate crime, in ways he appears to be Israli descent with some Italian, but I feel it has a lot to do with what is going on overseas, perhaps there is a relative value to his aggressive actions towards these storeowners, as they seem to present themselves as easy targets to this individual. Motivation to murder comes from hate mostly, though it could be a grudge due to a certain family members fatality. It seems relatively clear that this individual is trying to bring a war into the city, one that is without him.

  • Amber

    I would have to think that this could possibly be a hate crime. With this being said I would look at all the factors and the killer would have to know some of their schedule for the store owners, I think that would help this in abundance if everything was watched closer because this could not have been the first time that the killer has interacted with the victims. Knowing the history of the victims, where their stores were located, what time the shootings were at, and different factors like this will help solve this because the killer will probably return to the scene or will be getting to know the next possible victim..

  • Dorothy E Gastman

    This definitely smells like a hate-crime.

    • jerry

      nice theory, but the guy in the composite does not look like a white male (prereqisite for a “hate crime” to be charged).

  • Ken Hewitt

    “officials don’t want to erupt the city into panic by dubbing the killings the work of a serial killer.”

    This in an article titled “NYC Serial Killer Has Police Stumped”? Way to go, morons.

    • Matasha

      I know right. This is the result of people talking too much.

  • cyaltr

    im going to nyc on december 1 so hopefully he’ll be gone

  • Joseph

    All crimes are Hate crimes.

  • Quicksilver

    He is targeting people of middle eastern decent…or at least people with middle eastern sounding names, since I obviously don’t know where they are from. Why would he have to have knowledge of their schedule? You can walk into a convenience type store in the city at most any time and be assured who is going to be behind the counter.

    • http://yahoo jack

      I think you are right.

  • juditheysa

    8 is the number of the human justice.Also it is a terrible personal number with very bad meanings.

  • William

    Another example of the police inability to protect citizens. Also, another reason to carry a concealed weapon. These days, the only person armed is the bad guys. When the police cannot protect its citizens, then its up to the citizens to protect themselves. No carry laws only make the law abiding citizen a target for these evil doers.

    • HARRISON WINTHROP

      I SAY KILL ALL THOSE SAND NIGGERS!!!

  • Kitty

    They all have middle-eastern sounding names so there’s a clue, the way the bodies are out of view could show remorse. The one that was stabbed in the neck, could that just be the killer experimenting on ways to die? zif they were robbed, he could be poor or very greedy. He would have to act very trust worthy or already know these people. The fect that all the stores have a number 8 in their address means that he could have a special bond with that number. THIS IS ALL COMING FROM A GIRL UNDER 12 PEOPLE!!!!

    • Kitty

      Sorry for the misspellings. here is the edited version

The one that was stabbed in the neck, could that just be the killer experimenting on ways to die? If they were robbed, he could be poor or very greedy. He would have to act very trustworthy or already know these people or he might have a younger or older partner.
