Homeless slayings in Suriname capital go unsolved

PARAMARIBO, Suriname (AP) — At least two of the men died by gunfire. One was beaten to death with a brick. Another was doused with gasoline and set alight. Four were decapitated, two of the bodies seemingly drained of blood.

None of them had a home. Several remain unidentified. And the killer or killers have not been caught.

The unsolved murders of a dozen homeless people over the past eight years haunt the nighttime streets of Suriname's capital, and baffle the nation's police force. No one is sure if the slayings are random, or if there's a ritualistic Ripper of Paramaribo preying on the city's homeless, leaving them with a lingering taste of fear.
