ST. LOUIS (AP/KMOX) – The man being hunted for a quadruple murder in Kansas City, Kansas, has apparently killed again – this time near New Florence, Missouri.
Missouri Highway Patrol Lt. Paul Reinsch tells KMOX a 49-year-old, Randy J. Nordman, was shot at about 7 a.m. Tuesday, at his home near where Pablo Serrano’s pickup was found along Interstate 70.
Reinsch said investigators weren’t aware of any connection between Serrano-Vitorino and Nordman, whose home is near his family’s campground and a racetrack for remote-controlled cars.
A neighbor of Nordman’s, Genevieve Kelly, said she didn’t know anything had happened until she saw helicopters circling overhead. She said she didn’t know Nordman well, but that she would occasionally help him with sewing.
Reinsch says that witnesses saw Sarrano in that area. New Florence is about 80 miles west of St. Louis.
“The last report we have is him running from the scene of the homicide, eastbound from the scene,” he says. “We haven’t had any further sightings at this point in time.”
The circumstances of that killing are still being investigated.
Reinsch says 75 to 100 officers, search dogs, and two helicopters are searching for Serrano.
Officers are at nearby schools, which are on lock-down.
Serrano allegedly entered a neighbor’s home in Kansas City Monday night and opened fire. Three men were found dead in the home. A fourth victim died later.
Police officer Thomas Tomasic says one of the men managed to call police before he died.
Tomasic says he didn’t know how the men knew one another, or what prompted the shooting.
The owner of the Kansas City home where the four men were shot said he received a call from a tenant at a neighboring house Monday night about a person lying on the porch as if he were dead. Steve Manthe said that when he was allowed into the rental home after 6 a.m. Tuesday, he saw blood on the living room couch and throughout that room, and the television still on.
“It looked like he just stepped in the door and blew them away,” said Manthe, 61, who is retired from the Army.
Manthe’s family spent part of Tuesday morning scrubbing blood off the front porch with bleach. Manthe, who has lived in the neighborhood for 25 years, said he wasn’t aware of any tension between the victims and neighbors.
“We do advise anyone that sees this possible subject,” Reinsche says, “he is armed, he is extremely dangerous, so dial 911 or they can dial star-55 to contact the Missouri Highway Patrol. Do not approach the subject.”
Serrano is wearing a red and black flannel jacket, blue hoodie and jeans. He may be armed with an AK-47.
