Between July 30 and August 7, three young women have been killed in three different states, all while they were jogging. The question is whether the three murders indicate the handiwork of a serial killer.


The obvious similarity in the cases of three young women – Karina Vetrano, Ally Brueger, and now, Vanessa Marcotte – was that they were jogging when they died. The incidents happened in just over a week. However, there are more similarities beyond the obvious one.

According to Heavy, all three women were pretty brunettes. They were aged between 27 and 31 years old.

All three women had been described as creative, vibrant, and positive personalities by those who knew them. All victims were found in remote areas.

“Ally was our beloved, only child. She was kind, thoughtful, considerate,” Franz Brueger, father of Ally Brueger, said, as reported by Detroit Free Press. “She had a witty sense of humor but she was also a very serious-minded individual.”

Meanwhile, Marcotte’s father said that his daughter was a wonderful girl. He added that she was top of her class at Boston University, as reported by the Boston Globe.

Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early denied suggestions of a serial killer. In a press conference, Early stated there was nothing to hint that there is currently a serial killer at work. He said that there was nothing to connect Marcotte’s death to the unsolved murder of Vetrano, 30, from last week in Howard Beach, according to NY Daily News.

“We have a horrible set of facts, a horrible set of circumstances,” said Early. “We don’t know if this was a random act. We are asking residents of Princeton and surrounding areas to use an abundance of caution. … You can’t be too careful right now.”

There are differences in thekillings as well. This might point to the possibility that there could be three separate killers, and not one serial killer.

The three women were discovered dead in different states. The modus operandi of the killings were also different from each other. Preliminary reports suggested that Brueger was shot, Vetrano was strangled, and Marcotte was burned.

    Are there others not yet associated? Except for the age difference I would put jogger Melissa Millan on the list from 2014. Still unsolved from Simsbury, Connecticut.

    Why aren’t investigators even considering that there might be only one killer who has a goal of killing a “Preferred Type” in each of the 50 states, and following something like a modus operandi of “1000 ways to die?” I once thought I would like to get married in the capitol cities of all 50 states, so why couldn’t some psycho-killer have a 50 state goal and keep moving and keep investigators guessing? Maybe I should be a criminal profiler, since I have the morbid mentality to think of sh*t like this.
