Geoffrey Griffin, The Roseland Killer From Chicago

From July of 1998 to July 2000, Griffin used the neighborhoods of the Roseland area of Chicago as his personal killing fields. In a modus operandi familiar among African American serial killers, Geoffrey Griffin would lure area streetwalkers to abandoned buildings in lieu of receiving drugs or cash. Once inside, Griffin would rape then murder his victims. Arrested on June 17, 2000, he was subsequently charged with eight murders and 1 aggravated criminal sexual assault. Many of his charges stem from bodies found long after his arrest.

A suspected serial killer has been sentenced to 100 years in prison for the 2000 strangulation of a woman on the city's South Side.

Judge Fred Suria convicted Geoffrey T. Griffin of Chicago last month in the death of Angela Jones after watching a videotape in which Griffin described how he squeezed Jones' throat during sex after the two smoked crack cocaine.

Suria acquitted Griffin of killing Beverly Burns even though the 34-year-old's shirt and jacket were spattered with her blood. Suria said at the time he was troubled by a lack of evidence at that crime scene.

Jones and Burns were among seven women killed in the summer of 2000. The women, most of whom were participating in activities such as prostitution and drug use, were found dead in abandoned buildings in the Roseland and Englewood neighborhoods on Chicago's South Side and in nearby Harvey.

Police labeled Griffin the "Roseland Killer" after he confessed to killing Jones. He is awaiting trial in the five other killings.

He had a victim's blood on his clothes but he was acquitted of that murder?
