Worst U.S. serial killer behind bars tonight?

Los Angeles police today arrested John Floyd Thomas, Jr., a name no self-respecting true-crime buff will want to forget.

After a recent arrest, a DNA database matched Thomas to evidence left in two 1970s killings in Southern California. Thomas, they say, might have begun a serial rape and murder spree as early as 1955.

Police believe Thomas might prove to be the most prolific serial killer in American history, with an estimated 30 cases in the L.A. area alone.

Stay tuned ...

Wonder how long all this will take?

It is sad that it has taken this long but hopefully he will stay behind bars. Thank goodness for new technology and the people who don't give up looking for these people.
