Investigators Connect Suspect To Murders Of Two
May 3, 2006 -- Houston police
homicide investigators believe a suspect arrested and charged
in a 1990 murder of a woman in Missouri City is responsible for
the murders of at least two other women in Houston since August
2005 and likely committed other crimes over the past 16 years
since that 1990 murder.
The suspect, Edward George McGregor (b/m, DOB
3-29-73), was arrested as he drove his business truck on South
Gessner at West Bellfort on Monday (May 1). He is being held in
the Fort Bend County Jail in the Missouri City murder case.
HPD investigators believe McGregor is responsible
for the killings of Danielle Subjects, 28, of 10965 South Gessner
and Mandy Rubin, 25, of 10750 Westbrae Parkway. Both women were
strangled, beaten and found in their apartment bathtubs. Ms. Subjects
was found on August 5, 2005 and Ms. Rubin on February 4, 2006.
Their apartment complexes were just four blocks apart. McGregor
lived in the same apartment complex as Ms. Rubin.
Following Ms. Rubin's murder, McGregor and many
other possible suspects were interviewed and voluntarily submitted
DNA samples to investigators. That sample from McGregor helped
Missouri City police identify and charge him in the 1990 case.
HPD homicide investigators said McGregor befriended both Houston
women, but has denied being their killer. Following the February
murder, McGregor moved to Missouri City. It was at that time that
HPD investigators alerted Missouri City police that McGregor was
the focus of a murder investigation in Houston.
McGregor is not cooperating with HPD investigators
and has not been charged in either woman's murder at this time.
Since there is a 16 year gap with three known victims, investigators
believe McGregor is likely responsible for other violent crimes
against women. The crimes could be anywhere from assault to sexual
assault to murder. HPD investigators are researching open cases
to try to determine if McGregor can be identified in other incidents.
For those reasons, investigators are asking anyone
with information on Edward George McGregor to contact the Homicide
Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
