Four women in the broader Portland area are dead and their investigations have all been linked to the same person of interest, multiple law enforcement agencies announced on Monday.

Between February and May, the bodies of young women have been found along the sides of roads and in wooded areas within a 100-mile radius of Portland. In June, five law enforcement agencies said that six of those deaths were being investigated for any possible links.

In a joint press release issued by the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office, nine law enforcement agencies said links had been established between the cases of Kristin Smith, 22, Charity Lynn Perry, 24, Bridget Leann (Ramsay) Webster, 31, and Ashley Real, 22.
