A serial rapist living in the city was
responsible for a Saturday murder of
a Undergraduate Admissions Office
employee and three earlier rapes, Ann
Arbor Police Department detectives
AAPD Detective Sgt. Tom
Caldwell said itis believed 32-year-old
one blow of a fist to her head.
The incident is similar to three ear-
lier rapes, which have been linked to
the same person through DNA testing
at the Michigan State Police Crime
Laboratory in Northville. The first
case dates to Sept. 28, 1992.
Besides the four cases, Caldwell
said there may be four or five other
attemptedrapes by the same individual.
In all of the four attacks, police
believe the suspect has used his fist to
knock the victims unconscious.
Caldwell said Gailbreath had suf-
fered head injuries in a car accident
seven years ago, which may have made
the blow fatal.
Evidence from Saturday's incident
has been sent to the Michigan Police
Crime Laboratory for comparison. Po-
lice believe Gailbreath was sexually
assaulted, but will not be certain until
test results are obtained.
AAPD detectives said the suspect
probably lives in Ann Arbor and de-
scribed him as a loner. "We're giving
warnings to the community that this
individual is still in town," said AAPD
Chief Douglas Smith. "We're giving
a message to the women in this com-
munity to be careful."
Caldwell said the suspect is very
bold. "My assumption is that whatever
sets him off, he's going to attack the
first women. He doesn't care if he kills
his victims," Caldwell said.
Saturday's attack took place in the
afternoon in the 2100 block of West
Stadium, off of the south side of the
Farmer Jack parking lot.
She was last seen at 1 p.m. at Arbor
Drugs. Gailbreath was attacked in a

Lesson in communication - keep your mouth shut!
Assistant Prof. Richard Campbell said he thinks that is
what his situation has shown.
Wayne State University offered Campbell a job, but
withdrew it last week. Campbell said it is because he did

department of communication.'x
"When you get denied tenure, you're supposed to Campbell
