On September 23, police responded to an address in the 4200 block of West 12th Street and found 62-year-old Jeff Welch suffering from fatal knife wounds to his neck.

After a nearly seven-month hiatus, the alleged serial killer resumed hunting for victims, this time attacking 43-year-old Debra Walker at 19th and Marshall streets on the morning of April 11.

The woman was stabbed more than 15 times but survived and was able to give evidence to the police.

Less than 24 hours later, the killer struck again, fatally stabbing Marlon Franklin, 40, in the 2700 block of Wright Avenue.

Little Rock Police Chief Keith Humphrey said in a videotaped statement that all four victims were randomly attacked in the early morning hours.

According to the police, the suspect, seen in surveillance video dressed in a dark hooded sweatshirt and pants, is believed to be a black male standing at over 6 feet in height. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
