Why Dallas police are trying to link 750 deaths to Kenyan serial killer

After 750 senior citizens died unattended at a luxury senior living community in North Texas, US, eyebrows began to rise.

Now, a Kenyan – Billy Chemirmir – has been charged with the murder of 18 elderly women who died unattended during the period Chemirmir was working at The Tradition-Prestonwood, a luxury senior living community in Far North Dallas.

The police are investigating to find out if any of the other deaths could be linked to Chemirmir, such as Glenna Day, who was killed on October 14, 2016.

Chemirmir is a former healthcare worker who is accused of being a serial killer.

According to various US media outlets, investigators claimed Chemirmir posed as a maintenance worker to gain access to women’s apartments, smothered them and later sold or pawned their jewellery.

As investigations commenced, authorities linked more deaths to him.

Chemirmir’s lawyer has argued that the cases against him are largely circumstantial.

The lawyer further stated that most of the evidence may put the suspect in the area of the alleged murder, but didn’t actually pin him as the actual killer.

“It seems like every unexplained death they come up with, they’re pinning on him. If you look at all of it, it doesn’t stand up,” Chemirmir’s advocate Philip Hayes said.

A state representative from Frisco has filed a bill in response to more than a dozen murders at senior living facilities in the Dallas area.

House Bill 723, filed by Rep. Jared Patterson (R-Frisco), would require officials to notify next of kin when a death certificate is amended. That’s because many of the 18 deaths for which Billy Chemirmir is charged with murder were initially ruled due to natural causes.

“I don’t think that folks in the Dallas-Fort Worth area realize that we had a serial killer on the loose starting at least in 2016 and going for a period of two years,” Patterson said.
