Kensington update

    Morning, Feed readers.

    Some not-so-nice news this morning: The woman found yesterday in Kensington was indeed strangled and sexually assaulted.

    Investigators fear the woman may be the third victim of a suspected serial strangler in the neighborhood.

    According to the AP, Deputy Commissioner William Blackburn announced the results of an autopsy on the 27-year-old woman at a news conference Thursday.

    DNA tests have linked the two earlier killings, which date back to early last month. Police say those women were found beaten, raped and strangled.

    Investigators also think the same man may be responsible for three other attacks in which the victims were able to escape.

    Be careful out there.
