A string of murders in Cape Girardeau has been solved with the confession of a 63-year-old man.
Timothy Wayne Krajcir has confessed to killing five women in Cape Girardeau between 1977 and 1982. Krajcir made the confession as a plea deal, avoiding the death penalty. He also confessed to killing a college student in Carbondale, Illinois.
Krajcir has also been charged with a 1982 rape in Cape Girardeau. Authorities say he has also confessed to three other murders in three separate jurisdictions.
