Strangler snafu

    One thing is for sure in the Kensington strangler saga: Triz Jefferies is not guilty.

    It certainly didn’t feel that way yesterday, though. He was fingered on the “Catch the Kensington Strangler before he catches someone you love” Facebook page as a suspect. His name was printed on fliers and circulated around Kensington. His picture made its way ’round the internet. 

    Rumors got so out of control he was afraid to leave his house and had to call the police. Click here for the Philadelphia Weekly’s rundown of the events.

    Fear seems to be running the show here – so it’s not a moment to soon that we’ll hear from law enforcement officials.

    The Philadelphia Police Department, along with Mayor Michael Nutter, is holding a press conference today at 11 a.m. We’ll be there – check the Feed for updates.
