Authorities announce new leads in hunt for Kansas serial rapist

LAWRENCE, Kan. - Authorities believe they have linked a 2015 attempted sex assault to a serial rapist thought to have attacked 13 women from 2000 to 2008 in the Kansas college towns of Manhattan and Lawrence.

At a joint news conference Thursday morning authorities discussed an ongoing investigation into the rapes that terrorized the Kansas State and University of Kansas campuses. 

The Kansas attorney general's office announced in 2009 that it was investigating the link between the attacks after the two communities sought help from the agency. Most of the attacks happened between 2 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. during school breaks. All were in off-campus housing where students commonly live.
