11/17/12, NYC — Authorities say a New York City boutique owner was shot to death in the head Friday night with the same gun that killed two other shopkeepers in the same borough over the summer. Ballistics tests matched in each killing, all of which occurred in Brooklyn shops with an ‘8’ in the address. The Daily News reports that the shop owner Vahidipour Rahmatollah of Great Neck was behind the counter of She She in Brooklyn’s Flatbush section when he was shot Friday night.

BoutiqueScene: Police believe the killer may have been casing the shop, as it had no security cameras to catch him in the act

The gunman dragged the victim’s body toward the back of the store and covered it with clothing.  Police found the 78-year-old with two gunshot wounds to the head and one to the torso, DNA Info reported.

When he didn’t come home at the usual time his family called the police, who discovered his body. It wasn’t not clear if the killer actually took anything, or if the murder was his sole motivation. ‘He never had in his whole life one enemy, he didn’t have, he was a very kind man,’ his sobbing wife, Naima Rahmatollan, told reporters.  Saturday he was supposed to be at his grandson’s Bar Mitzvah. Police believe the murderer had been watching the store in preparation for the attack, noting that he’d chosen a shop with no security cameras. The other two merchants were killed July 6 and Aug. 2 with the same .22-caliber gun. Mohammed Gebeli, 65, was shot to death at his clothing store at 7718 Fifth Ave. and Issac Kadare, 59, was found dead in his Bensonhurst store at 1877 86th St.  No one has been arrested in any of the killings.

Composite sketch of suspect who is wanted for trying to lure children with candy.

Latest update: 10/16/12 -Arvada, CO — According to NBCNews, Arvada Police are now FINALLY turning their attention to this suspect who is wanted for a seperate case of (attempted) abduction:

Updated: 10/16/12 – According to NBCNews, Arvada Police are now finally turning their attention to this unidentified male. They would like to interview/question him in the wake of Jessica Ridgeway’s abduction and murder and would like the public’s assistance in identifying him:

Police in Arvada, Colo., are looking for a man suspected of trying to abduct two children a few weeks before 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway’s killingto see whether there is a possible connection.

In two reported incidents on Sept. 9 and Sept. 12, Arvada police said an 8- and 9-year-old were nearly abducted, according to police.

“Both of them said they were offered candy to get into the vehicle. In both incidences, they knew to run and tell an adult,” Arvada police spokeswoman Jill McGranahan told ABC News affiliate KMGH-TV.

Jessica’s body was found Oct. 10 in an Arvada park,  seven miles from her home in Westminster, Colo.

Meanwhile, police in Cody, Wyo., announced that a man suspected in a child abduction case was arrested Sunday in Belgrade, Mont. Authorities in the Ridgeway case do not believe there is a connection.

With no major breaks in the case, residents in and around Jessica’s hometown are on edge. A report that a man in a car tried to kidnap a 13-year-old boy in Jefferson County, Colo., this weekend turned out to be false.

The teen believed a man was trying to lure him into his parked car, so he ran inside his home and alerted his mother, who managed to snap a photo of the suspect in his blue sedan.

When the picture was circulated by police, the 18-year-old man in the car turned himself in and explained that he had been trying to get the boy to knock on the door of his ex-girlfriend’s home to get her attention, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Mark Techmeyer told KMGH.

A mug shot of the driver was taken, but he was released after police determined he was not a threat to the community.

“I think everyone reacted just the way they should have, in the light of everything that is going on,” Techmeyer said.

With so few clues, authorities have asked the public for help, urging them to be on the lookout for anyone showing behavioral changes.

“Child abduction, first of all, is an outrageous crime,” ABC News FBI consultant Brad Garrett said. “But then when the perpetrator actually kills a child, that is so above the pale, you’re going to get people maybe to come forward that wouldn’t normally.”

FBI profilers believe the suspect that they are hunting is likely male and might have recently missed work or suddenly left town. He might have changed his appearance or gotten rid of his car, profilers said.

“The sicko is out here, still,” Westminster resident Shanna Pearsy said. “Who knows where he is at but we need to find him.”

Jessica had been last seen Oct. 5, when she left for school. The fifth-grader never showed up at a nearby park where she was supposed to meet friends for the one-mile walk to her elementary school.

After an extensive search of the area, including knocking on doors and FBI road blocks, Jessica’s dismembered body was found Wednesday in an Arvada park, miles from where she was abducted.

“It’s hard to imagine why someone would want to do this to such a nice little girl,” Seth Snyder said Saturday at a memorial for Jessica.

Published: October 8th, 2012, Denver, CO — Arvada Police are trying to locate a suspect in an attempted child abduction case. The man has approached children near Warder Elementary School and Fitzmorris Elementary School twice this week. In both cases, the unidentified adult male has offered candy to children, then tried luring them into his vehicle.

The first victim described the man as having a thin build and mustache, while the second victim described the man as having no facial hair. Police and witnesses are certain it’s the same man and he most likely shaved his facial hair after growing it to disguise himself.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male with light blond/brown hair and around 5’9” tall with a thin build. Police say he is between the ages of – Late teens to early thirties.

The biggest clue is the suspect’s vehicle which is described as a mid 1990’s era royal blue, four-door sedan with dents on the passenger side rear door. It may also have half of the rear wheels covered with a “skirt” similar to those seen on a  1996 Cadillac Deville.

Jefferson County Public Schools sent a letter home with all Arvada students on Thursday, (10/04/12) to alert parents and to remind them of the importance of talking with their child about ”stranger danger” and what to do if a stranger tried taking them against their will. It letter also talks about telling children to be aware of their surroundings.

Pictured: Victim – April Marie Tinsley

FORT WAYNE, IN, COLD CASE → April Tinsley was your typical eight year old but that all changed on good Friday, April 1st, 1988, also known as ”April fools day”. April was on her way home from a friend’s house in Fort Wayne, Indiana when she was kidnapped, raped and murdered by an unknown killer,  Three days later, her body was found on the side of the road, approximately 20 miles away, in an area of farmland.

Fort Wayne police department and other law enforcement agencies worked around the clock looking for April’s killer, media ended up drawing in many tips and leads which all lead to dead ends. April’s case has even made it to ‘America’s Most Wanted’ to no avail. However, John Walsh, host of the show, visited Fort Wayne on August 20th, 2012 to film the second episode of April’s murder hoping for answers or information.

Very little information or details are known about the killer. He is male, Caucasian or Hispanic and was last seen in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Below is a composite sketch of what April’s killer might look.

Two years after the murder of April Tinsley, a note appeared on a barn door near where her body was found. The note, seen below, read “I kill 8 yea old April Marie Tinsley. I will kill again”  Near the message, “ha ha” was faintly scrawled. Fourteen more years had passed when four more notes in a similar handwriting began appearing at several Fort Wayne residences. Three were left on little girls’ bikes; the fourth was in a mailbox. Whom ever wrote the notes claimed responsibility for the murder of April Tinsley and threatened to kill again.  They were written on yellow lined paper and placed in baggies that included used condoms and/or Polaroid photos. The notes stopped in 2004 and the killer hasn’t been heard from since. This could indicate a couple of things, he passed away or is currently in jail for a separate crime.

Police say this note was placed in a ziplock bag that also included a condom. They also say the DNA on the condom matches the DNA found on April Tinsley.

Included with the fourth and final note he left specifically for a young Fort
Wayne girl to see, were pictures of the suspect himself lying on a blue-green,
paisley-patterned bedspread.

Whoever murdered April Tinsley enjoyed taunting the young girl’s family, police, and the community, especially other little girls. The sick man got some type of twisted pleasure out of it. He needs to be caught, dead or alive so April Marie Tinsley and her family and anyone who has been victimized by this individual, can have justice and closure.
