HPD Seeks Public's Assistance In Homicide Investigation

April 10, 2006 -- On Sunday, April 2, 2006 the body of Pamela Ann Goss, 50, was found behind a church located at 1927 Mansfield. As a result of the investigation into the death of Ms. Goss, the Homicide Division has learned of additional victims who may have been picked up by a black male suspect and taken to church properties in north Houston where they were sexually assaulted.

The Houston Police Department is cautioning the public that a male sexual predator, usually armed with a knife, may be picking up females of all races and sexually assaulting them. The suspect will approach females walking and ask them if they need a ride. Some of the victims, but not all of them, have been involved in prostitution. According to the victims, the suspect is said to have a very friendly approach.

At this time, no other murder cases have been linked to this suspect, but that possibility is being examined. Based on the MO (Method of Operation), it is believed this suspect is responsible for at least four other sexual assaults.

Also discovered during this investigation were two sexual assault cases wherein the victims did not file a police report. It's believed there may also be other victims who have not filed a report on this suspect. The Houston Police Department would like to request any additional victims, regardless of their criminal histories, to come forward and be interviewed. The earliest sexual assault report found regarding this suspect was in the latter part of 2005.

The suspect is described as a black male, late 20s to mid 30s in age, 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall, weighing 180 to 220 pounds, with very short black hair or bald. The suspect is thought to be driving a late 1990s model four-door sedan that is either black or dark blue. Other vehicles may be involved.
