The Hamilton Police Service issued a response Thursday (Apr. 7) after a viral social media post alleged there is a serial killer targeting tattooed women in the Hamilton and Halton areas.
The viral post suggests women in their thirties and forties are being targeted and that there is a connection between the alleged serial killer and two missing persons – Stacie Rasberry and Emily Bailey.
