Rachel Morin’s still-at-large killer could be a ‘serial killer,’ sheriff says

The man suspected of murdering Rachel Morin has shown “no respect for human life” and could be a “serial killer,” the Maryland sheriff overseeing the case said Monday.

Harford County Sheriff Jeff Gahler told Fox News Digital he fears the mystery man could strike again while admitting the perpetrator could be anywhere in the country by now.

“The violence associated with Rachel’s case demonstrates that he has no regard for human life at all. I think he will continue to do it until he is captured,” Gahler was reported as saying.

“Maybe he’s a serial killer.”

Authorities have been searching for the ruthless killer since Morin’s body was found Aug. 6 on the Ma & Pa Heritage Trail in Bel Air, Maryland.

The 37-year-old mother of five was found dead less than a day after her boyfriend reported her missing.

She was running alone on the popular trail at the time of her murder.

A DNA sample taken from the murder site has been linked to a home invasion and assault on a young woman in Los Angeles in March, police said.

“All serial killers start somewhere. What he did in Los Angeles was certainly, I think, in that direction,” Gahler told Fox News on Monday. “I think it was his intention to inflict more serious physical damage.”

Despite the discovery of the DNA, the police do not have the identity of the suspect and have no idea where he might be.

“He could still be resting here in our county, or he could have fled anywhere in the country or even the world,” Gahler told the outlet.

Police have released video of the suspect, who is described as a Hispanic male approximately 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds.

Morin’s mother, Patty Morin, said during a memorial service for her daughter on Sunday that the pain of losing a child “is so unbearable.”

“I know that the God we believe in and the God Rachel believed in were there holding her and comforting her,” Patty Morin said, according to WJZ News.

Gahler, the Harford sheriff, has previously expressed concern that Morin’s killer may continue to kill.

“This person has utter disregard for the sanctity of human life and until he is arrested there is a threat that he will do something harmful to another person,” he told Fox News last week.

“This individual poses a threat to all communities from here to Los Angeles because we don’t know where his head rests at night,” he added.
