Jigacoon Emanuel Lovell Webb, bona fide serial killer (by the strict definition of a
"serial killer"
kills between 4 and 10 !
The detectives sent evidence from four homicide cases to the F-B-I, (NIGGER DNA CAN NOW BE READILY IDENTIFIED; IF THE FBI DIDN'T WARN PUBLIC-- AND THEY DID NOT-- THEN
so that federal authorities could compare the samples with D-N-A profiles of convicted felons nationwide stored in the Combined D-N-A Identification System. The DNA technology and nationwide profiles were not available in the early 1990s.

Police say the identification system recorded D-N-A "hits" for Webb in all four cases. The cases included the killings of Gandy, Sharon Cunningham, Minnie Sutton and Sheila Etheridge.
Police: 'East End Killer' found
Georgia man suspected in up to 10 Bridgeport murders

BRIDGEPORT — Police said Tuesday they have arrested a Georgia man they believe is responsible for at least four murders of young women in the city in the early 1990s.

Emanuel Lovell Webb, 40, was charged with one count of murder by Bridgeport Police detectives at the D. Ray James Correctional Facility in Folkston, Ga., where he was being held on a parole violation.

Police said they have traced Webb through DNA to four murders here, but they said he could be responsible for as many as 10.

He has been charged with the April 19, 1993, murder of 34-year-old Elizabeth "Maxine" Gandy.

State's Attorney Jonathan Benedict said the arrest was the result of the persistence of the Bridgeport Police Department's Cold Case Unit, which in 2000 began to reinvestigate a series of homicides of Bridgeport women in the early 1990s.

He said the Cold Case Unit is continuing to investigate the murders of Sharon Cunningham, Minnie Sutton and Sheila Etheridge, "as well other unsolved homicides of females around that general time frame."

Benedict said members of the unit have been in contact with Georgia officials to arrange Webb's extradition to Connecticut.

In March 1994, then-State's Attorney Donald A. Browne established a special Homicide Task Force to investigate the murders of a number of young women found dead in vacant buildings and lots in the city's East End. At that time, police dubbed the unknown suspect the "East End Killer."

The task force later disbanded, having uncovered few leads.

In 2000, Detectives Heitor Teixeira and Robert Sherback, the sole members of the department's Cold Case Unit, picked up the cases. They reinvestigated about 15 murders of young women between the late 1980s and early 1990s and selected 10 that had similar characteristics. Evidence from four cases — involving Gandy, Sutton, Cunningham and Etheridge — were sent to the FBI for comparison in its Combined DNA Identification System, which maintains DNA profiles collected from convicted felons nationwide. The DNA technology and nationwide profiles were not available in the early 1990s.

Police said sperm had been located at the murder scenes of Cunningham and Etheridge, a cigarette butt was found at Sutton's murder scene, and Gandy had skin under her fingernails from scratching her killer.
In each case, CODIS recorded DNA "hits" for Webb, police said.

Between 1987 and August 1993, Webb lived with his sister, Bernice Snead, and a girlfriend in the East End of Bridgeport.

Teixeira said a hunch made the investigators check old records at Bridgeport Hospital that showed that the day after Gandy's murder, Webb had gone to the hospital to be treated for a laceration to his right middle finger.

"Detectives Teixeira and Sherback did a great work on this investigation," said Police Lt. James Viadero. "I know they feel satisfaction to be able to close a case this old and to bring closure to the victims."

Reached at her Bridgeport home, Bernice Snead expressed shock that her brother was a suspect in the killings.

"My mother is 80 years old and lives with him in Georgia; get the hell off my phone," she said.

Webb was born in Vidalia, Ga., on April 9, 1966. His family later moved to Mount Vernon, Ga., where in 1969 his father, Shade Webb, a disabled Navy veteran, died of pneumonia.

After graduating from high school, Webb moved to Bridgeport, where he lived with his sister. While here, Webb held jobs with Bur-Don Security of Fairfield and J&B Construction of Bridgeport. In 1986, he started a relationship with Jadee Hanson; they had two children. They lived on Smith Street and later Carroll Avenue.

In August 1993, Webb and his family moved back to Mount Vernon, Ga. According to Georgia court records, he was arrested there in July 1994 for the murder of Evelyn Charity, who was sexually assaulted and strangled. Webb subsequently pleaded guilty to the lesser charges of involuntary manslaughter, robbery and theft of a motor vehicle and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. He was released on parole on Dec. 18, 2001.
It's never too late to Retaliate!
