Kensington Strangler Suspect Caught
MyFox Philadelphia ^ | 1/17/2011

Posted on 01/17/2011 4:01:46 PM PST by PapaBear3625

Fox 29 has confirmed the Philadelphia police have caught a suspect in the case of the Kensington Strangler, a serial attacker who killed three women in the past two months.

Fox 29 first reported that police would make an announcement in the case on Monday night. The announcement turned out to the naming of a suspect in the case.

The man was taken into custody about 20 minutes after a police press conference.

Police say a DNA match confirms the suspect is Antonio Rodriguez, a 21-year-old man, from Philadelphia’s Kensington section.

He is described as a black male, 5’ 9”, with a large scar from his ear to his throat.

Black/Hispanic male targeting white women. So much for the stereotype that serial killers are all white men.

That stereotype was essentially blown away when they caught that black guy who killed a whole bunch of women and buried them in and around his house. I cannot remember which city.......

That was Cleveland.

Philadelphia had the rape/torture den.

I just watched the crime show First 48 Hours or whatever it is about a guy in St. Louis. They found a couple of dead hookers in a garage of a vacant house. The one on the bottom a few weeks old, the one laying on top was a week old.

After news reports, a guy called in every night after the news to tell them of more bodies with the same m.o.

Turned out it was a black guy sent to prison for 22 years. He had killed his wife after finding out she had turned to hooking to make more money. All of the ladies he killed were prostitutes. I think they found something like 6 to 8 bodies, but in his calls he had claimed more.

Shoot it’s been blown away since the Atlanta child killings. Not to mention the KC serial killer who took out about 7 prostitutes in KC.

Remember the DC snipers? We were all told the suspects were white males because the montgomery county police chief didn’t want to have profiling of black men, even though witnesses claimed that black men were the shooters, with a pretty good description.

That would be Kansas City. And it does seem to be more but the local news screwed everything up by saying the police were investigating his cell phone.

Thanks PapaBear3625.

Hate crime???

I would be very surprised if that label was mentioned, just because his victims were exclusively white women.

The flash mob that had hundreds of black teens beating up white people last March in Philly was never labeled a hate crime.

I went and checked the news about the 2010 flash mob attacks. Out of dozens of articles, NOT ONE contained the phrase “hate crime”.

Derrick Todd Lee was another black serial killer who would have been caught earlier if they weren't looking for a white guy.

I think the Mafia is there too. Was downtown Philadelphia on a Thanksgiving day with my crew several years ago looking for a place to eat. Saw a place that had ‘guards’ placed in front of a mom ‘n pops Italian restaurant- 2 of the biggest black guys with the biggest arms and chests I have ever seen. Wearing sunglasses on an extremely overcast day. Being a little naive, I walked up to pacing short white man who was wearing a suit with white socks and asked him where to have a holiday dinner, that it was a surprise we had the time off, being that we were a flight crew. Being from the South and all, I had settled in for a nice long talk and he pointed out a good place to go. He had a gravely voice and was very nice. Told my father about it that night and he
F R E A K E D. O U T.
Demanded I stay in my hotel room until our trip left the next day.
He is the one who made the connection about mafia- I figured he knew as he is full Sicilian. My great grandfather opened up the first speakeasy in Pa back in the day.
Good recommendation on the restaurant though. We got in right away and got a good seat. Pretty good for a place that only took reservations.

Wonder if Shorty called ahead for us...

Wrong order, switch the perpetrators color with the victims and you have a case!

“Kansas City”

Thanks. My wife and I were watching a movie last night where a news program blows the spy’s cover. I commented to my wife it was just like the real-life thing those cops in Kansas City had to go through. (That episode of 48 hours was just like a terrible movie).

In Philly, the mayor, the chief of police, and most of the likely jury pool would be black. Either way, things would not go well for you.

Can’t be this guy. A serial killer is a white male with a pickup truck and a gunrack. /sarc
