According to the Boston Herald, police have made a link to the bouncer from The Falls, Darryl Littlejohn, by matching carpet fibers from his home to ones found on the tape and blanket at the crime scene of Imette St. Guillen. It also appears that Littlejohn may also be charged in a previous sexual assault of another woman who picked him out of a photo array.
Detectives who executed a search warrant on the 41-year-old parolee’s Queens home on Monday removed a section of his red carpet. Fibers from it are “identical” to those found when St. Guillen’s brutalized body was located in a grimy section of Brooklyn on Feb. 25, several sources said.
“It’s a match. The same carpet threads were found in the packing tape and on the comforter,” a law enforcement official told the Herald. “We are continuing to collect evidence in the case and will probably charge him this week or early next. He’s not going anywhere.”
In addition, investigators told the Herald they recovered DNA that is not Littlejohn’s from a blanket taken from his home. Police are probing whether the DNA belongs to St. Guillen, sources said.
Is it possible that career criminal Darryl Littlejohn is responsible for previous sexual assaults? Evidence and accounts from previous rape victims seems to be showing a similarity in patter.
All three victims “told investigators he put a blanket over their heads, raped them and then wiped down their bodies with some sort of swabs,” said a ranking NYPD official. “The one victim picked him out in a photo lineup. The victims in the other two cases could not make a positive ID because their heads were covered.”
In a sketch released after the 19-year-old was attacked in October, the suspect is a bespectacled black man wearing a baseball cap reading “Fugitive Agency.” He was wearing black clothes and a windbreaker with the same words emblazoned in yellow on the back.
