NEW YORK — Police say a Connecticut man accused of killing a New York nurse and sexually assaulting a California woman used dating sites to find his victims – and he may have killed others.
Drayton's arrest came one week after New York nurse Samantha Stewart, 29, was found dead in her Queens home, where police say Drayton raped and strangled her, WABC reported. Investigators believe Drayton met Stewart on Tinder.
Drayton also is suspected of raping a Brooklyn woman, whom he also met on Tinder, last month, WCBS reported.
According to WABC, Drayton told police that he may have killed seven other people, but authorities haven't found any evidence to corroborate his claims.
"There are potentially more victims out there," New York police Detective Dermot Shea said, according to WTNH.
