Potomac River Rapist sought as FBI reopens cold case
The hunt is back on for the Potomac River Rapist — 13 years after the serial stalker killed his last victim as she walked home from a summer barbecue.
The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward for any information about the fugitive assailant who terrorized women in the Washington area between 1991-98.
The unrepentant rapist disappeared after the Aug. 1, 1998 rape and bludgeoning murder of 29-year-old Christine Mirzayan in Georgetown.
His other victims included an 18-year-old babysitter and a mom whose infant was in the house during the attack. Although the last incident occurred inside the nation’s capital, the others were all in Maryland.
The first occurred more than two decades ago, on May 6, 1991, in Gaithersburg, Md.
The Maryland attacks all occurred inside a residence, with the rapist stalking the victims, breaking into their homes and waiting for their return.
“In law enforcement, we understand that justice delayed does not mean that justice will be denied,” said federal prosecutor Ronald Machen Jr.
“One piece of information from the public — no matter how insignificant it might seem — could crack this case and allow us to apprehend this killer.”
Seven of the nine attacks are now linked by DNA evidence, while all featured a similar violent approach. The rapist — sometimes wielding a screwdriver or knife — threw a blanket or towel over the victims’ head before brutalizing the women.
Authorities said the suspect, now likely in his late 40s or early 50s, is a black man between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-11, with a medium build. They believe he lived in the area of the attacks.
The FBI was joined in the investigation by the Montgomery (Md.) County police, Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department and the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.
“The public is our best weapon in solving this case,” said FBI Washington office head Ronald Hosko. “We need you to think about this information, jog your memory and call law enforcement.”
