Investigators Connect Suspect To Murders Of Two Houston Women

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.
