Mystery Man Burns Sleeping Homeless People, Facts To Know

The manhunt continues for the assailant who killed two homeless people and left a third fighting for his life, said law enforcement authorities.

According to San Diego homicide Capt. David Nisleit, the hunt will not stop as investigators keep on working round the clock to catch the killer. Police have informed that detectives and the department’s homeless outreach team have been patrolling locations to stop other attacks and to inform transients of the danger.

It was reported by The San Diego Union Tribune that police have been distributing photographs of a man they believed to be related to the case.

The homeless population of San Diego and the organizations that work with it are extremely startled by the killings.

It was on July 3, Sunday, when police got multiple 911 calls from witnesses who said they saw a man on fire, running down the train tracks alongside Interstate 5. The charred body was later found.

Early Monday morning, two similar and brutal attacks took place.

It was reported by police that the victims were transients assaulted most probably while sleeping.

San Diego Police Lt. Ray Valentin said in a news conference that they are also insisting that the public come up with information to help locate the man.

San Diego police has revealed surveillance footage of a man they would like to question in relation to the attacks.

“I believe that’s how we’re going to solve this case,” Nisleit said. “We’re going to put that photo in front of someone who knows him.”

Nisleit also informed that there is no doubt that these attacks are committed by the same person.

According to Fox News, it is unfortunate that the homeless population are habituated to a certain degree of violence. Advocate Michael McConnell said the killings and the other attack have scared people.
