Seems that poster may have been dead on the money with the rumor posted a couple weeks ago (which I can't find to update)...
COLUMBUS, Ohioâ€”There has been a possible break in the North-West serial rapist investigation.
Itâ€™s a story NBC 4 has been following since June, and NBC 4â€™s Paul Stelzer had an update Monday.
Columbus police have been searching for a man whom detectives said committed several rapes on the cityâ€™s West and Northwest sides.
Police have been investigating a local man as a suspect NBC 4 learned Sunday night.
Detectives have a suspect, according to court documents uncovered by NBC 4.
A recovered stolen phone led detectives to the man who is listed as a registered sex offender, CPD said.
The suspect also has a lengthy criminal history, including rape and burglary, and matches the description in connection with the rapes, according to court records.
He currently is in jail on other charges.
The suspectâ€™s name wasnâ€™t being released because he hasnâ€™t been charged with the rapes.
