A winter weather advisory has been issued for all of eastern Carolina except Carteret, Onslow, and Duplin counties through 4am Friday. Light freezing rain and sleet will be possible.
Descriptions from the victims may vary on what this man looks like, but the DNA is the same. The State Bureau of Investigation has linked five rapes that occurred in Raleigh and one in Greenville to the same suspect through DNA analysis. Five rapes occurred in Raleigh between 2003 and 2004. A sixth rape happened in Greenville in 2005. Though there are no leads yet, Greenville police, Raleigh police and State investigators are working together on this case. Authorities say linking these rape cases could lead to tips from the public that will help them identify the suspect.
