Last month when L.A. Weekly broke the story that a police detective had connected the violent deaths of several prostitutes as the work of one individual, Fresno inmate Roger Hausmann was named as the leading suspect. However, L.A. Weekly revealed Friday that a DNA test has subsequently cleared Hausmann, who remains imprisoned on unrelated charges. "Obviously there is still someone out there," said Captain Ed Winter from the L.A. County coroner’s office.
