Killer of Mom of 5 ‘Will Strike Again’, Cops Warn
The mystery man who brutally murdered Maryland mother of five Rachel Morin is still at large, and police fear he could strike again.
Morin, 37, was found dead on August 6 on the Ma & Pa Heritage Trail in Bel Air. She had been on a solo run when she was attacked and killed.
A DNA sample retrieved from the scene matched Morin’s killer to a man wanted for the March home invasion and assault of a young girl in Los Angeles. However, the match has not yet led to the killer’s identification.
Harford County Sheriff Jeff Gahler said that the killer “poses a threat to every community from here to Los Angeles” because they do not know where he is. He also believes that the killer is likely to strike again, as he has shown “an absolute disregard for the sanctity of human life.”
Gahler is urging anyone who recognizes the suspect to come forward. The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his 20s who weighs around 160 pounds and is about 5-foot-9 tall.
The sheriff also said that it is “very likely” that someone knows the killer in either Los Angeles or Bel Air. He is asking anyone with information about the suspect to contact the Harford County Sheriff’s Office immediately.
Morin’s death has left her family and friends devastated. Her boyfriend, Richard Tobin, said that she was a “loving and caring mother” who would be deeply missed.
“She was the glue that held our family together,” Tobin said. “She was always there for us, no matter what.”
Morin’s murder is a tragedy, and police are working tirelessly to bring her killer to justice. However, the longer the killer remains on the loose, the more likely it is that he will strike again. If you have any information about the suspect, please contact the Harford County Sheriff’s Office immediately.
