From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cleophus Prince Jr. (aka "The Clairemont" Killer) is an American serial killer who was convicted and sentenced to death in 1993 for the rapes and murders of six women in San Diego County, California during 1990.

Prince either lived near or had friends near the killing scenes. He was caught when a woman who was getting ready to shower heard someone picking her door lock. She escaped from a rear window and found a friend who came and confronted Prince. He excused himself, but the description led to his arrest.

The woman said he may have followed her from a local gym. All the previous victims had just left the gym, including a mother and daughter. Prince struck when he knew they would be showering and thus be less attentive to their surroundings. He later bragged about the double killing to a friend and took to wearing the dead woman’s wedding ring on a chain around his neck. [1][2] Prince, who is African-American, is unusual for serial killers of his race in that he killed victims of a different race.[3]

Cleophus Prince, Jr., was arrested by an officer with the Birmingham Police Department after he was 'talked into' the East Precinct. He was transferred to San Diego, California, by Detectives from the San Diego Police Department.
