In California, as Stockton police continue to dig for any clues that could lead to an arrest in a series of killings, investigators were looking into a possible connection in Chicago; however, police confirmed that Chicago police do not believe there is any apparent connection between the killings in both cities, KCRA reported.
Joe Silva, a spokesperson for the Stockton Police Department, said officers were working with the Chicago Police Department to see if two 2018 Rogers Park murders are linked to the serial killings in Stockton and Oakland. The connection was in the similarity in the suspect's manner of walking in the surveillance videos in both cities. (In Chicago, the suspect was called "The Duck Walk Killer.") Also, the two victims in Chicago were men and so are most of the victims in California, ABC10 noted.
In Chicago, two deadly shootings happened just 36 hours apart in the neighborhood, according to the Chicago Tribune. Windy City Times reported that 24-year-old Eliyahu Moscowitz was found dead, face down, in Loyola Park on Lunt Avenue in the late evening of Oct. 1; he had been shot in the head. His discovery came just a day after a 73-year-old man, Douglass Watts, was also killed in the same manner just a few blocks away on Sherwin Avenue.
Moscowitz was a member of the city's Jewish community while Watts was a member of the LGBTQ+ community. During an Oct. 2, 2018 press conference, then-Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said it was too soon to determine if the incidents were hate crimes, but that investigators "were looking at the possibility."
[UPDATE: KCRA reported that Wesley Brownlee, 43, was arrested "while out hunting," police Chief Stanley McFadden said at a news conference.]
