A New Orleans police officer is a suspect in the murders of two out of 24 victims of a serial killer of mostly women prostitutes strangled and dumped naked in the New Orleans area over the past four years, authorities confirmed Saturday. FBI agent Neil Gallagher would not say if Officer Victor Gant, who is still on the force at a desk job, is a suspect in the other 22 murders.

In his first formal appearance in a Florida courtroom since his extradition from Kentucky, accused serial killer Glen Rogers stood silent during arraignment Tuesday as a judge entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. Rogers, suspected of killing four women in a cross-country rampage that began in Van Nuys, is charged in Florida with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of Tina Marie Cribbs, whose body was found in a Tampa motel bathtub in November.

A serial killer--possibly a police officer--has murdered 24 people, mostly prostitutes, since 1991 and dumped their naked bodies near swamps, law enforcement officials said Friday. Authorities have suspected for about a year that a serial killer was on the loose in the New Orleans area but didn't announce the investigation until Friday, when they appealed to the public for help.

Authorities from six states compared notes Wednesday about Rogers, 33, who is suspected of strangling or stabbing at least four women in the past two months.

There's some good news and some bad news about this city's beleaguered Police Department, which has become better known for committing crime than for fighting it. The good news is that last year's record homicide rate has begun to plunge, perhaps enough for the Big Easy to shed its dubious distinction as the nation's murder capital. After an all-time high of 421 killings in 1994, homicides dropped 18% in the first six months of 1995.

They were waitresses and maids, mothers at an early age who had hard lives and harder deaths. Bound by their reddish-brown hair and grisly fates, they also shared failed marriages, a love of country-Western music, and an ease with strangers less common among women of greater means. All felt at home at their neighborhood bars or a nearby fair--normally safe havens. All had been seeking some simple fun when they ran into Glen Rogers, whom police have linked to their deaths.
