Marc Patrick O'Leary: Washington and Colorado Serial Rapist (Unbelievable)
Detective Stacy Galbraith interview
Golden, Colorado, U.S.
In Golden, Colorado during January 2011, Detective Stacy Galbraith interviewed a woman who reported being tied and raped at gunpoint for four hours by a masked man who threatened to post pictures he took during the incident online if she told anyone. The man forced her to shower and brush her teeth afterward and took her bedding with him. When Galbraith talked to her husband, he recognized details of the case from an incident reported to the police department where he worked in nearby Westminster, Colorado. Galbraith began a collaboration with Westminster Detective Edna Hendershot, who had investigated two cases in which women aged 59 and 65 were raped in similar ways. They also discovered a burglary in which a masked man had attempted to tie up a 46-year-old woman. The woman managed to jump out of her window, breaking three ribs and puncturing a lung. The four known cases took place in different suburbs of Denver. The man had gone to extreme lengths to avoid leaving DNA evidence, but three touch DNA samples were obtained from three of the crime scenes. The analysis showed that the DNA belonged to the same paternal family line, but was too limited to make further conclusions.
