Texas: 20th Murder of a Senior Citizen Linked to the Kenyan Killer

The national media might be hiding when it comes to the serial killer case evolving in Texas, but the Dallas Morning News isn’t!

On Monday another victim was revealed by a reporter who is not letting the horrific story be swept under the rug.

Here is what investigative reporter Charles Scudder wrote:

Another family claims serial murder suspect Billy Chemirmir killed their loved one, the 20th in North Texas

Another family fears their mother was killed by Billy Chemirmir, the serial murder suspect who is accused of smothering older women before stealing jewelry and other items in Dallas and Collin counties.

Imagine the horror if this was your mother or beloved grandmother killed allegedly for a few rings.

Diane Delahunty, 79, died Dec. 3, 2017, at Preston Place Senior Living Apartments in Plano. At the time, though three rings were missing from her fingers, police told her family she had died of natural causes.

But the medical examiner changed her cause of death to “undetermined” in July, and her daughter, Lori Delahunty, said Monday police have told her Chemirmir killed her mother.

Her death is the 20th that has been linked publicly to Chemirmir. Two other women survived attacks in Frisco and Plano.

Chemirmir has been indicted on 12 counts of capital murder in Dallas and Collin counties, and two counts of attempted capital murder. Including Delahunty, eight more North Texas families have said police believe Chemirmir killed their loved ones.

There is much much more in this article (not behind a paywall), but I want you all to go read it and thus let the Dallas Morning News know that there are hundreds, hopefully thousands, of people all across the country following the case.

The article contains a great interactive timeline.  This is a screenshot of one date on the line.  You need to go to the article for the active version.

 

And, don’t miss this!  Station WFAA says the Kenyan Killer (of course they don’t call him that, I do) story is one of their top stories of the year:

This is a screenshot. You will have to open the link to see their report. https://www.wfaa.com/video/news/local/dallas-county/2019-in-review-billy-chemirmir/287-be1f35bd-7752-437d-a1f0-0e03c1f422ee

 

Why is the case being kept so hush-hush?

I think it is because the police and medical examiners may have really screwed-up by missing signs in early cases that might have saved many vulnerable seniors from a horrible death at the hands of a man who should not have been in the country in the first place.

See my previous post on the case, here.  In it I have linked all of my many posts on the case since it was made public in the spring.

Please help spread this story far and wide.

And, please keep a close eye on your loved ones that you think are safe in assisted living or nursing homes.

  1. It’s heartbreaking to read the daughter’s wondering why her mother was killed for three rings….a quarter would have been motivation enough for that scum. My mother’s place was great, but it absolutely is a must for family to drop in without warning as well as visit their love ones placed in nursing homes

    1. Yes, thank you for that reminder. I was happy where my mother was and the staff never knew exactly when I was coming.

  2. All families should keep close watch on their parents. Cameras in hallways are a must! My mother was a victim of Billy Chemirmir. Her death certificate was overturned to “violent homicide including smothering”. She lived in “an independent living establishment that was top rated and touted their security” Most of the victims were NOT in assisted living or nursing homes, totally healthy and felt safe.
    He should have been flagged and deported on prior arrests – 6 of them! My family will never be the same.

    1. It is so horrible to contemplate what all of the families must be going through. And for the rest of us it so maddening to know that none of those lovely people should have lost their lives because of incompetence by authorities. How many more? We can only imagine.
