A 27-year-old man was arrested by Kansas City police in connection of the killing of two female prostitutes in recent years, The Kansas City Star reported.
Derek Richardson was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of abandonment of a corpse. According to court documents, Richardson has confessed to killing, The Kansas City Star reported.
Police are confident they stopped a serial killer and authorities are searching the United States to ensure there weren't other victims. "We absolutely stopped a person who was going to kill again," Kansas City police Sgt. Doug Niemeier told the Associated Press.
Police asked for public help earlier in January because they believed whoever was responsible for the deaths left a Crocs-brand shoe at where the last body was found and a tipster contacted police with the description of the shoe, the Associated Press reported.
Both victims' bodies were found at the side of the road with their shirts pushed up and their pants pulled down and their bodies covered in bleach in an attempt to destroy evidence, The Kansas City Star reported.
Richardson did not have a prior criminal record to his arrest and used to work unloading trucks until about October, The Kansas City Star reported.
