Dunn charged for one murder, not suspected as serial killer

Despite statewide news accounts, Lubbock police are not making any direct connections between Kenneth Dunn, 54, of San Antonio and the murders of multiple women in Lubbock.

Dunn is charged with the murder of Stephanie Williams, 43, after her body was found along a city street in January.

Recent accounts such as WOAI radio in San Antonio pose the question, "Is a San Antonio man a serial killer?" And KENS 5 TV, also in San Antonio, says on its web site, "Lubbock police say they have reason to believe Dunn may be connected to the murders of five other women."

This week a Dallas Morning News online article said, "Lubbock police are investigating whether the recent murder of a Dallas woman is linked to five other unsolved murders involving prostitutes since 1999."

That's not exactly what Lubbock police say they said.

"We will as a matter of routine look to see if there is a connection to other cases. But at this time there is no indication that he's been involved in previously unsolved homicides," said Sergeant Jonathan Stewart.

KENS 5 says, "The victims, all believed to have been prostitutes, were all found in and around east Lubbock, in the exact industrial area where Williams' body was discovered two months ago."

The article seems to reference the murders of Monica Adams, Selena Kuykendall, Amanda Gschwend, Cynthia Palacio, and Linda Carbajal. If so, not all were found inside the city limits, nor were they all found in the same neighborhood as 46th and Avenue L., where Williams' body was found.
