The Dallas Police Department has linked a Texas man accused of killing his girlfriend’s father to three other unrelated murders.
Jeremy Rashad Harris is “the definition of a serial killer,” Deputy Chief Ruben Ramirez said during a virtual press conference on Friday. “It’s a coincidence. There’s no connection.”

Harris, 31, was arrested after police found the body of 60-year-old Blair Carter in a burning house in Selina on Wednesday, CBS DFW reported on Friday.
Witnesses say they saw a man dressed in black fleeing the scene and holding an unknown object, WFAA-TV reported.

The surveillance video shows a white four-door car with custom wheels, which police say is owned by Harris’s girlfriend.
The friend later told investigators that Harris attacked her and took the car for several hours when police believed he had shot Urea.
The arrest warrant shows that Harris was involved in the wreck hours later in a Ford Taurus, which corresponds to the description of the vehicle seen at the time of Urea’s murder.
During a search of the car, which was stored in a workshop, police found a cartridge fired under the passenger seat.
In an interview with Harris, officials said they had confirmed he owned the car, KFOX14 reported.
Receipts found at Harris’ home show that he bought a Ruger 9mm pistol and a Taurus 9mm pistol two weeks later.
The murders of 57-year-old Kenneth Jerome Hamilton and 36-year-old Adam Gottro took place on November 14.
Gottro was shot and killed while delivering at 8:30 p.m., and Hamilton – father, grandfather and husband – was shot while returning half an hour later. He died at the hospital after the attack.
The surveillance video showed a black Chevrolet Tahoe with black wheels in both places. A set of black rims was found in Harris’s apartment and the same gun was used in the killings, police said. Police also linked the weapon to a November 16 shooting on East Grand Avenue that killed the victim.
During the search of the jeep, investigators found a 9 mm pistol, which was “destroyed and burned.”
On the evening of November 17, a man and two 20-year-old women were shot dead in separate incidents, where police identified Harris as a suspect. He was arrested at his apartment in Ellis County and held in Colin County Jail in lieu of a $ 3 million bond.
“We will continue to coordinate with all participating agencies and jurisdictions to protect the public and see that justice is done,” Colin County Attorney Greg Willis said in a statement.

Dallas police said that while Harris has a criminal history, he has never been charged with the level of violence he is now linked to. The motive for the shooting remains unclear.
“It’s extremely unusual for someone to just go shooting,” Ramirez said.
“We suspect he may be responsible for other crimes,” said Assistant Chief Avery Moore. “We’re investigating these now.”
