EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Social media posts claiming there is a serial killer in El Paso are absurd, the El Paso Police Department said on Wednesday.
Residents have been sharing posts on Twitter and Facebook telling women that a serial killer has been confirmed in El Paso and they need to watch out.
While it is always a good idea to watch out for yourself, police have not confirmed that a killer is on the loose.
The police department dispelled the rumors in a tweet Wednesday afternoon.
“There is absolutely no truth to the spreading social media comments of a serial killer on the loose,” police said. “There are no kidnappings or serial killings occurring. These reports/comments/post are absurd. Consider the source and credibility or lack thereof.”
There are three women missing that El Paso area police are searching for.
