Giles Warrick ‘Potomac River Rapist’
Giles has involved in the “Potomac River rapist” assaults in Maryland and the district, according to officials. The aggressor had “terrified our community,” DC police chief Peter Newsham said Thursday.
According to the FBI, Warrick was a serial rapist who had previously attacked nine women, has been released for years.
In a news release from 2011, the FBI stated:
“Christine Mirzayan was 29 years old, a National Academy of Sciences intern, and had a promising career ahead of her on the summer evening in 1998 when she was walking home from a cookout in Washington, D.C. Tragically, she never made it. In 2011, the FBI and its law enforcement partners reached out to the public – a reward of up to $25,000 is being offered by Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department (MPD)—for assistance in apprehending the offender known as the Potomac River Rapist.”
Between 1991 and Mirzayan’s murder seven years later, the Potomac River Rapist brazenly and brutally preyed upon women in the Washington area. Victims were attacked in their homes and included an 18-year-old babysitter and a mother whose infant was in the house at the time of the attack. Seven of the nine attacks have been linked by DNA, and all are linked by the offender’s similar violent methods.
“It is believed the suspect lived in, spent a considerable amount of time in, or was otherwise familiar with the areas of the attacks,” said Special Agent Erin Sheridan in 2011. “The suspect is generally described as an African-American male of medium build who is currently believed to be in his 40s or 50s.”
A task force—made up of the FBI, MPD, Maryland’s Montgomery County Police Department, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia—is working to capture the Potomac River Rapist. Using a variety of digital platforms such as FBI.gov, social media, radio spots, and digital billboards, the media campaign provides information about the case and the offender.
“We believe that someone in the public will help solve this case,” Sheridan said in 2011. “Because law enforcement is in possession of DNA evidence that can either positively link the suspect to his crimes or exclude innocent parties, the public should not hesitate to provide information, even if it is just the name of a potential suspect.”
‘Potomac River Rapist’ Arrested
The arrest could put an end to one of the most notorious cases in the area that has bothered the investigators for a long time and frustrated the victims and their families. The last known attack occurred in 1998 near the river in Georgetown when a 28-year-old biochemist was beaten to death with a rock slab.
Police said Thursday that DNA evidence led them to identify Warrick as a suspect. He was arrested in Horry County, South Carolina, which includes Myrtle Beach.
Police Investigation Reports
The investigators of the cold case units in D.C. and Montgomery County “worked almost daily together over the past few months once this case accelerated,” said Sgt. Chris Homrock, head of the Montgomery cold case unit, said Thursday. “This was really the definition of a team effort.”
The researchers solved the mystery, he said, following two paths: the traditional work of cold cases and the investigation of family DNA connections, an increasingly common policy tool.
In this case, Homrock said, investigators had already developed a strong DNA profile of his suspect because of the evidence he left had crime scenes.
