Mark Warren was a sadist – an unidentified perp the police had connected to seven open cases – his game was to wait for a lone woman driver to come down his chosen street (dark, vacant, secluded), pretend to be struck by their car and attack when they get out to help. He had lured eleven women to their deaths this way, albeit not before having a little fun first.
