Investigators have been finding palm prints for decades. It was less than four years ago, though, the Texas Department of Public Safety created a searchable statewide database of them.
Investigators with the Dallas Police Department believed there were two rapists, and possibly three, terrorizing a neighborhood in Lake Highlands – until now. DNA has proved a suspect in one case is not the culprit.
The search for a serial rapist may be over. According to investigators, a person who was taken into custody on Friday could very well be the man who they have been hunting for years.
