20061204: Suspected serial killer in court TX Houston Serial Killer News

A man suspected in a string of Houston area murders appeared in court Monday.

George McGregor told the judge he had a lawyer, but the lawyer was not with him so the hearing was reset.

McGregor was most recently charged in the 1994 murder of a Harris County woman.

Edwina Latriss Barnum, 23, was strangled.

Prosecutors say DNA evidence linked McGregor to the crime.

He is also charged in the 1990 murder of Kim Wildman of Fort Bend County. She was a neighbor who was killed when McGregor was only 17.

Homicide investigators have identified McGregor as a suspect in the 2006 murder of Mandy Rubin and 2005 murder of Danielle Subjects.

According to police, two single mothers who lived in apartment complexes just blocks from one another were both found murdered in their bathtubs and they both knew McGregor.

McGregor has lived in at least three other states -- Florida, Georgia and Louisiana -- which has left police and residents wondering what else may have happened in a span of 16 years.

 

20060517: Protesters march at home of suspected serial killer TX Houston Serial Killer News

Demonstrators gathered in front of the home of suspected serial killer Edward George McGregor Wednesday to protest, pray and warn residents of his presence.

McGregor posted bond Monday after a judge lowered it from $1 million to $250,000.

He is living with his parents in the Hunters Glen subdivision.

McGregor is charged with a 1990 murder in that same subdivision. Kim Wildman, his neighbor, died from stab wounds after calling 911 to beg for help.

Protesters Wednesday marched from McGregor's childhood home to Wildman's where they held hands and prayed.

"We're saying to all the single women in this neighborhood: If you don't own a gun, go and buy one," said Activist Quannel X. "We're saying to the single mothers in this neighborhood, if you're at home and you're living by yourself, lock your doors, lock your windows."

Houston police said McGregor is also the prime suspect in the murders of two Houston women who were severely beaten and strangled in southwest Houston.

“The violence that occurred to these women was unprecedented and very, very violent -- very horrifying, horrific,” said Sergeant Jim Binford, HPD Homicide.

Both of those victims were strangled and left in their bathtubs and both knew McGregor.

Police have also alerted authorities in Florida, Georgia and Louisiana to check their cold case files since McGregor lived in those states over the last 16 years.

20060505: Family of alleged serial killer's victim speaks out TX Houston Serial Killer News

Houston detectives are now working with police in other states on the serial killings investigation here.

For two days Police have talked at length about George Edward McGregor, a man they call a serial killer, a man they believe is responsible for murdering at least three women.

One of his victims was Danielle Subjects.

A beautiful woman, a mother of two, a daughter that left this Earth before her two loving parents.

"Its neverending. You know you try and go on with your life. I don't know, it just flashes at you. The least little thing that you see that reminds you of your loved one. It all just comes flashing back," said her dad Donell Williams.

To Donell and Sharon Williams, there has been some closure in the last few days, knowing a killer has been caught.

"I still want to now why. I would like to go down there and talk with this guy if I can ever get the chance to. Maybe he could explain to me why. Why this had to happen. You know, she wasn't the type of person to deserve what she got," said Williams.

Williams says she had just graduated from MTI, and was working as a hairdresser when she was murdered in August.

Just five months later, Mandy Rubin was found dead and another family was devastated.

"We always wanted to talk with them from day one because we knew how they felt when they called us about our daughter, so we kinda wanted to go over but we had no number or anything," said Williams.

Detectives have told us that they will get the two families together so they can meet and talk.

Meanwhile, HPD homicide said they have contacted investigators in three other states, Florida, Georgia and Louisiana.

These are other states that McGregor lived in. They still believe there is a strong possibility he may have hurt someone else over the years.


One of the cities he lived in in the early 1990s was Miami. Our affiliate in Florida will be following this story for us there and we will keep you up to date.

11 News talked with a father of a 31-year-old woman who was murdered last fall and he says in the last two weeks, HPD investigators have asked him if his daughter knew McGregor.

This story is far from over HPD said yesterday it has a lot of work to do.

 

20060504: UPS Driver Becomes Serial Murder Suspect TX Houston Serial Killer News
A UPS driver arrested and charged in connection with a slaying from 16 years ago may be involved in the murders of two other women, police told KPRC Local 2.

Edward George McGregor, 33, was arrested at work Monday in a Missouri City case. Investigators said in 1990 he stabbed Kim Louise Wildman, 38, in her home in the 1400 block of Whispering Pine Drive.

Houston police investigators believe McGregor is responsible for the killings of Danielle Subjects, 28, of 10965 South Gessner, and Mandy Rubin, 25, of 10750 Westbrae Parkway.

Both women were strangled, beaten and found in their apartment bathtubs. Subjects was found on Aug. 5 and Rubin on Feb. 4. Their apartment complexes were four blocks apart. McGregor lived in the same apartment complex as Rubin.

"The women were left in the same situations, same physical posing of their bodies, same areas of their house and bathtub. It wasn't just a random thing that they both happened to die like that," said Sgt. Jim Binford with the Houston Police Department.

Rubin's family told KPRC Local 2 that McGregor and Rubin were friends. He attended a party at Rubin's mother's home.

"She was friendly to everybody," said Tina Rubin, Mandy Rubin's cousin. "It was somebody that knew her, that knew her children, that knew her family. It was just a shock. It's still a shock."

Rubin left behind two children, 4 and 6 years old.

McGregor has not been charged with the two murders. For now, police are only calling him a suspect.

Officials said that because there is a 16 year gap with three known victims, investigators believe McGregor is likely responsible for other violent crimes against women. The crimes could vary from assault to sexual assault to murder.

HPD investigators are researching open cases to try to determine if McGregor can be identified in other incidents.

"I’m sure he befriended a lot more women that just my cousin and then that other lady that was also murdered in the same fashion, so it's just really scary," Tina Rubin said.

Police said they do not believe McGregor met his alleged victims through his job as a delivery driver.

Anyone with information on McGregor is asked to contact the Homicide Division at (713) 308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at (713) 222-TIPS.

 

20060504: Residents learn they might have been living near serial killer TX Houston Serial Killer News

As police continue to investigate whether a man tied to the murders of three women has other victims, neighbors at an apartment complex where he used to live spoke with 11 News.

Police call the suspect a serial killer.  Right now he is only charged with a murder of a Missouri City woman, but police also believe he killed two women in southwest Houston who lived only blocks apart.

“That’s great.  That’s all we need in this world is more serial killers,” said Louis Manzano, town home resident. 

“It’s scary, because you don’t know … you can’t tell,” Kristina Revis added.

Stunned reactions from residents of a town home complex where records indicate alleged serial killer Edward George McGregor lived among them as recently as two years ago.

“It could be someone you’d bump into, and that’s scary because you think, that’s Ok, it’s a somewhat quiet neighborhood around here and someone pulls up and says hey, ‘guess what, a murder lives here’,” Revis said. 

“It’s just like having kids and then having a child molester living right across the street from you,” Manzano said.

It is a sordid equation.  According to police, two single mothers living in apartment complexes just blocks from one another in southwest Houston had two things in common.  They were both found murdered in their bathtubs and they both knew 33-year-old McGregor. 

“The violence that occurred to these women was unprecedented and very, very violent, very horrifying, horrific,” said Sergeant Jim Binford, HPD Homicide.

McGregor is being held in the Fort Bend County Jail on charges that he murdered a third woman 16 years ago, when he himself was only 17.

Police said he lived two doors down from Kim Wildman, who managed to call 911 before she died.

Between then and now, McGregor has come and gone through many places.

He has lived in at least three other states, including Florida, Georgia and Louisiana, which has left police and residents wondering what else may have happened in a span of 16 years.

“People move in.  People move out and never say ‘hello, who are you,’ or anything else, you know, so you never know who you’re living next to,” said John Gustafson, resident.

Police are reviewing files to see if there are any similar cases that remain unsolved.

Police have also received several calls from people offering information about the suspect, as well as from people claiming to be his victims. They are sorting through those calls on a case-by-case basis.

 

20060502: UPS Driver Arrested In 1990 Slaying TX Houston Serial Killer News
A man driving a UPS truck was arrested at work Monday in connection with a slaying from 16 years ago, officials told KPRC Local 2.

Investigators said Edward George McGregor stabbed Kim Louise Wildman, 38, in her home in the 1400 block of Whispering Pine Drive in 1990.

"This was a very savage, brutal killing that did involve intrusion, sexual assault," said Detective Andi Wiltse with the Missouri City Police Department.

Wildman was able to call 911 after the attacker escaped. Her body was found in the kitchen next to the phone.

McGregor was 17 at the time of the crime. Detectives said he lived near Wildman and chose her randomly.

He was taken into custody shortly after 7 p.m. Monday while at work driving a UPS delivery truck in southwest Houston.

Investigators credit old-fashioned police work and cooperation for the arrest.

"We were able to do a comparison and the DNA from Houston's case was an exact match for the DNA in our case," Wiltse said.

McGregor has a criminal record, including aggravated assault.

He is being held on a $1 million bond.
