The Suitland Killings were the murders of several women in Prince George’s County, Washington during 1987. The women were all African-American. Many of the victims had been sodomised.
Alton Alonso Best was sentenced to 15 years-to-life for the murder of another woman there, Janice Morton. Best is considered a suspect in the murder of these 5 women (Pamela Malcolm, Juanita Walls, Cynthia Westbury, Angela Wilkerson, Dorothy Miller).
The police in the area believed that there may have been a link to the Freeway Phantom of 1971-1972 but refused to elaborate. But I will, because this weekend I’m posting it here, Zodiac Cipher – The Freeway Phantom – 1971-1972.
The early victims were:
Pamela Malcolm, 25.
Juanita Walls, 26.
Cynthia Westbury, 22.
Angela Wilkerson, 22.
Dorothy Miller, 20.
