Authorities out of St. Charles, Missouri, are asking for the public’s help locating a gun believed to be used in at least half a dozen murders nearly 25 years ago.
The murders were carried out by a serial killer who targeted women along Interstate 70 from Indianapolis to Wichita in April and May of 1992. Investigators fear the man’s unusual gun – a long barrel semi-automatic .22 caliber pistol known as an Erma Werke ET-22 – may unknowingly be in the hands of a collector.
Authorities are offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect, who was described by one witness at the time of the killings as being a white male in his mid-thirties, with auburn hair, standing about 5 feet 7 inches, with a slender to medium build.
