The Region

After conferring with investigators in Washington, D.C., and Suitland, Md., Detectives John St. John and Fred Miller of the Southside Serial Killer Task Force were not able "at this time" to establish any connection between the 17 slayings in and around South-Central Los Angeles and the murders of six women in the capital and the Maryland city, a Los Angeles police spokesman said. A 30-year-old man has been arrested in Washington for the strangulation slaying of a black woman whose body was dumped in an alley there. The bodies of five other black women have been dumped in a field near Suitland. Most of the Southside victims have been black women.
