STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA: The streets of Stockton are full of fear due to an alleged serial killer on the loose. A criminal profiler has now provided insight into the description and motive of this killer who is suspected of killing seven people already. Police previously reported that the five killings took place on July 8, August 11, August 30, September 21, and September 27, and then added the murder of a man, 40, and attempted murder of a woman, 46, to the same list. After seeing the CCTV footage made public by the police, the criminal profiler came up with some striking details which also highlight the possible motive of the Stockton serial killer.

Criminal profiler Jason Jensen told The US Sun that the suspect, he believes, is a six-foot-tall male who is aged between 20 and 30, concluding this by the suspect's "gait and stride". Jensen said, "The victims wouldn’t have been able to see anything when they were ambushed. The shooter is wearing all black because they’re trying to hide in the dark." Jensen strongly believes that the shooter is a bloodthirsty individual as "they might think that they don’t have a purpose in life." Five victims, between the ages of 21-54, and four of out of these victims were Hispanics, which is considered as a pattern by the police. He continued, "They don't think they'll be famous so they'll become infamous. They have no moral compass. The attacker isn't motivated by rage and they're shooting whomever they encounter - it's a crime of opportunity."

Jensen believes that the suspect's first kill was due to an altercation or argument which is when they developed a taste for blood and a desire to kill "whomever, whatever." Stockton police chief Stanley McFadden pushed the citizens to notice how the suspect was seen walking in the clip. McFadden also believes that was on a "mission" when the spree was carried out. The San Joaquin County medical examiner's office revealed the names of the most recent victims of these alleged serial killings - Paul Alexander Yaw, 35; Salvador William Dubedy Jr, 43; Jonathan Hernandez Rodriguez, 21; Juan Cruz, 52, and Lorenzo Lopez, 54, as explained by ABC7

As reported by MEAWW earlier, Fadden said on Friday, September 30, "By definition, you could probably very well call this serial killings. It wasn’t a robbery. Items aren’t being stolen. They’re not talking about any gang activity in the area or anything. It’s just element of surprise. We do have grieving family members that are asking a lot of questions, and they want closure. We are just hoping that someone will do the right thing and report that information to our detectives." A $125,000 cash reward has been offered to anyone who can bring information that leads to an arrest in any of the investigations.
