Chilling CCTV shows ‘serial killer’ Stockton walking with a noticeable limp in ‘usual suspect style’ while cops chase a gunman

CHILLING footage shows the suspected Stockton serial killer on the prowl – walking with a distinctive limp that could help identify him.

Video from a “person of interest” was released after police officers in the California city linked six random gun homicides and one attempted murder.

Five murders that year across the city of Stockton have been linked through ballistics evidence

Stockton Police Chief Stanley McFadden said last night: “We think we may have a potential serial killer.

“So we will treat it as such.”

Five murders between July and September this year and another last year were linked by ballistic evidence, he said.

The person of interest appears on video at multiple crime scenes – but there is no evidence directly linking her to the shootings.

The police chief urged the public to take note of the suspect’s uneven gait and upright posture.

“We don’t know what the motive is. What we believe is that it’s mission driven,” McFadden said. “This person is on a mission.”

At this point, authorities don’t know if it’s a killer or a gang.

But the unrelated victims seem to have been chosen at random under cover of darkness.

Most of the victims were Hispanic males, with an average age of 42. Some were homeless, others weren’t.

After 43 killings in the city this year, fears were raised last month that a serial killer was on the loose.

Now police have confirmed five of the deadly shootings are linked to two others from last year.

A timeline of the murders was also revealed.

There were six days between the first two shootings and then more than a year to the third crime, McFadden said.

The first known victim was Juan Vasquez Serrano, 39, who was shot multiple times in Oakland on April 10, 2021 at around 4:15 a.m.

The second victim – an unnamed black woman – survived after a man dressed all in black ambushed her tent and fired multiple shots.

She said the gunman – who didn’t say a word – was between 5’10” and 6ft tall and was wearing a black Covid-type face mask.

Family heartbreak

That summer began a series of five more murders.

Paul Yaw, 35, was killed on July 8th.

His mother Greta Bogrow, 60, said he had been homeless for several years and they had become estranged.

She added: “I always hoped in my heart that someday we would be reunited and have a relationship.

“It is always a mother’s dream that her children will become good people. He was a good man. I only wish I had the opportunity to speak to him again in this life.”

Salvador Debudey Jr., 43, died on August 11.

Devastated wife of 12, Analydia Lopez, said: “To be honest, part of me died with him that day. It was hard. It was really, really hard.”

The youngest victim, Jonathan Hernandez Rodriguez, 21, was shot dead in his car on August 30.

Juan Cruz, 52, was murdered on September 21.

The youngest victim, father of six-year-old Lawrence Lopez Sr, 54, was mugged in a residential area just before 2 a.m. on September 27.

He “was just a person who was out here in the wrong place, at the wrong time, and under the wrong circumstances,” his brother, Jerry Lopez, told KXTV-TV.

“It’s hard to process that that happened.”

Cops previously released a grainy image of a person interested in the case.

“This is of great concern,” Mayor Kevin Lincoln II said. “We do not know if there is one individual or a set of individuals responsible for these killings.”

There’s now a more than $125,000 reward for information leading to an arrest after the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms donated $25,000 to the fund.

Police assembled a team of detectives, task force officers, camera room operators and crime analysts to solve the crime.

None of the victims were robbed, and all of the crimes occurred when the victims were alone in areas where there were no surveillance cameras.

Police warned the public not to travel alone after dark and through remote locations.

“I know it makes a lot of people nervous when they hear that out there,” McFadden said.

“We’re seeing some patterns and similarities in some of our more recent murders, which we’re looking at more closely.”
