Tampa Florida – Police Searching for Serial Killer, Three Known Victims…

This is a little weird. There’s some video CCTV of a potential suspect SEE HERE. Police don’t know if the suspect is male or female, black, white or latino.  Three young victims all in the last 10 days.

TAMPA, FL (WFLA) – A recent high school graduate who took the wrong bus home from work on Thursday night has become the third victim of a killer who is targeting Tampa’s Seminole Heights neighborhood.

Interim Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan said officers were patrolling Seminole Heights around 8 p.m on Thursday when they heard gunshots. Minutes later, officers found the body of Anthony Naiboa, 20.

“He was in the prime of his life and was taken instantly,” said Chief Dugan during a news conference on Friday morning.

In a horrible occurance, Naiboa’s body was found on the sidewalk near the home where the killer’s first victim, Benjamin Mitchell, 22, lived on North 15th Street.

Dugan said he was frustrated that officers did not catch the killer on Thursday night despite deploying a helicopter, SWAT team and K9s.

“I was convinced we were going to catch this person,” he said. “Our officers heard the gunshots. We have a heavy presence and this person was able to sneak away.”

Naiboa is autistic and had taken a city bus home from work. His parents called police when their son did not return home from work on Thursday night. Sadly, they learned he was a murder victim.  (read more)

    Since the police couldn’t find him/her in the area & the killer was on foot – perhaps he/she also lives in the area & was able to get back to his/her home & hide. Maybe even hid in unoccupied home or somebody’s unlocked garage.

      I used Google Earth with street view to look around this neighborhood. It has a lot of moss covered trees over hanging the streets and yards. Lots of fences etc. Unless the helo had Flir I doubt they could see the perp through the canopy. Imagine lots of shadows and dark spaces in which to hide.

          Agreed this person has very identifiable walk. What I find more interesting is what they are wearing. A hooded coat (not a hooded sweatshirt), and what appears to be a knit cap under the hood. The coat is narrow cut and long. Pants are straight legged but soft fabric, like track pants. Appears to be wearing sandals. Flat footed walk. Definitely a man. I say that by his build/shoulders and how he handled the phone. There are very few hooded coats for men cut like that, at that length. It appears to be windbreaker or raincoat style. Windbreakers are not that long. I am in N FL and it is still warm to be wearing a long coat and hat even at night. I will say the thugs wear the hoodies even when it’s hot to hide their identities.

            See if you can determine the way the palms face when the arms are by the side. Most males walk with palms facing backwards and females with palms facing inward, toward the center of the body. Tall, thin black males are often an exception to this.

            This person walks so erect and the gait reminds me of a person in a marching band. This person may shop at thrift stores as the hooded car coat is unusual. I agree it appears as if he or she is wearing a light colored knit cap or head covering underneath the hooded car coat. The person appears to be comfortable in the neighborhood as he/ she looks straight ahead.

            Could it be that he has one of those thin rain jackets on, but a longer shirt underneath that is coming out and makes the jacket look longer?

            I’m only able to see this off of my phone, so I can’t slow it down or narrow the picture in. I did watch it multiple times though.

            To me it looks like a guy with a slim build. Plus, I don’t know any girls who flip their phone open like that, but I could be wrong. It just seems like a very male thing to do.

            I thought the officer speaking should have been more specific on going outside. At first it sounded like he wanted all of the residents to flood the streets, which scared the heck out of me. I get the turning on the porch light, but not going out and making myself a target.

            I was relieved to hear him suggest only going out in groups since he seems to target only one person.

            Another thing I thought was something to note is he mentioned multiple times they heard shots fired, not just one shot, but multiple shots. How many I don’t know. He said it in he plural form.

            I’m thinking he gets up close and personal and makes sure that the victim is dead before leaving.

            I wouldn’t mind knowing where these victims were shot. Head? Chest? Both? What is the forensics on the distance the shots were made? How many shots? Caliber of weapon and so forth.

            It could save someone’s life. For instance, say the shooter is on the other side of the street and crossing over to my side, I would definitely walk to other side. If the person crossed again, I’d run. If the killer needs to get close, this action may save someone’s life. I don’t know if they have open or concealed carry or no carry, but either way I’d want to be armed. I also wouldn’t go out walking alone for any reason. I just hope people don’t find themselves having to just so they can get to work though.

            I do believe this person will get caught, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he lived in the same neighborhood. The person in the video didn’t act like he was unfamiliar with his surroundings and wasn’t looking around like most would if they were new to it. Time will tell, I just hope no one else becomes a victim.

        0:36-8 gives a nice facial profile that looks male to me or maybe Grace Slick is out walking the beat? The gait is indeed skewed a bit at the RT foot and almost looks like he’s trying not to add any gangster lean but can’t help keeping his chest out like a proud loin on the hunt like those with the hyena’s on leashes in Africa. He knows this neighborhood and cased it well, just like Malvo and his pappy Mo who, get this, turns out to have sexually abused him. I bet he knows where most if not all the cameras are and looks to be very confident. Hopefully this cocky trait is what gets him caught. The phone check could be just a fake nothing to see here distraction to keep the rouse up while searching for his prey. I was a kid growing up in NY during Son of Sam’s reign or terror, everyone was freaked out. I prey for those affected by this demon.

          I’m wondering about the relevance of the victim named ‘Naiboa’. In a word search on-line, all I found were references to hotels in the Dominican Republic. When I first read the name, I thought it was Arabic, but it seems to be hispanic.

        Just a thought. If any of the victims had a cellphone (or even tablet or camera with GPS) that was turned on, there’s a chance that the perp’s device could be located by
        triangulation (cell tower and victim device, then perp’s device)… if they do it before logs are flushed…

    Prayer for the President
    Father, right now, we lift up President Donald J. Trump to You, his wife, his children, and everything that he is.
    Father, we pray supernatural protection upon him.
    Lord, that You would even speak to him in the night hours and show him exactly what to do. Give him supernatural wisdom, favor, and direction.
    Father, be about him as a wall of fire, that no harm and evil will come near him. Pull the wheels off of Pharaoh’s chariot. Let President Trump be steps ahead of the enemy. If they dig a ditch for him, let them fall in it themselves.
    Thank You, Lord, that You are giving America one more opportunity. We pray that the Word of God prevails and grows mightily in the hearts and lives of the people in the United States of America – that they would see Jesus as He really is.
    Thank You, Lord, that we will have peace in our country and in the nations of the earth. Thank You for peace even over Israel.
    Thank You, Lord Jesus, for another Great Spiritual Awakening in America.
    We thank You, Lord, for the harvest of souls that is going to come in.
    In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

      He had several guns and 2,000 rounds. At the range, we call that ‘a normal day with a couple friends.’

    How weird. We have been watching Mindhunter on Netflix, so a little odd and frightening to wake up to news about a serial killer. Prayers and heart wrenching sympathy for the families.
    That video could be anyone. Gait is distinctive and although terribly unlikely, it could be female. I agree with concealed carry. We have a family member who is always carrying and though at times it feels a little weird to know that there is a weapon on our walk though the park, it is the smart thing to do.
    I hope this nut ball is caught today.

          I did another 3 hours of research on the Vegas incident again today, and the search results were almost entirely debunking any conspiracy whatsoever. There were a few conspiracy sites in the search results, but those were the type that most people wouldn’t read. There were just a couple of sites that tried to have an appearance of being reasonable, with “Here are the questions you should be asking, etc.”, but the problem with those are they asked the wrong questions – basically, “If you don’t have proof of conspiracy, go away.” It’s possible that Podesta and Obama and other high-level Democrats aren’t connected to the massacre, but given the amazing coverup, I’m sure they figure in there somewhere. I’m of the mind that these officials are innocent until proven guilty “as individuals”, but not per their positions.

    There was another murder in the same area of Seminole Heights back in January. His name was Dontae Lampkins and last time he was seen alive was getting off a bus, he was found dead in an alley two days later. The police think he was going to meet a person he met on a dating site and that the person he went to meet might be his killer, but I don’t think they ever caught the guy. A video of Dontae and a sketch of a person of interest was released in March. I’m wondering if the cases could be connected. All the murders seem to have a connection with a bus or bus stop, that’s what caught my attention.
