The search for a Louisiana serial murder suspect centered on Atlanta Monday night as Georgia authorities turned up evidence that he had been there, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Derrick Todd Lee, a 34-year-old truck driver, is said to have been linked by his DNA to the slayings of five women in south Louisiana since September 2001. He was charged Monday in a warrant with one of the murders. He is believed to be on the run.
Lee, a married father of two children, has a lengthy rap sheet that includes arrests on complaints of running through a police road block, burglary, stalking, criminal trespass and beating a woman in a bar.
“He is to be considered armed and dangerous,” said Baton Rouge Police Chief Pat Englade.
