Serial killer slain?: Serial Killer Killed

Serial killer slain?: Serial Killer Killed, Police believe that a man killed last week by a sex worker in Charleston, West Virginia, may have been a serial killer.
The man, identified as 45-year-old Neal Falls, was killed by a woman he met in the escort section of Backpage.com, according to NBC News. He showed up at the woman’s home last week armed with a gun. “Live or die?” he allegedly asked when she opened the door. Then he began choking her.
“When he strangled me, I grabbed my rake, and when he laid the gun down to get the rake out of my hands, I shot him,” the woman, who asked to be identified only as Heather, told CBS News of the harrowing encounter. “I grabbed the gun and shot behind me.”
But it turned out that her actions may have saved lives. Authorities told NBC News that a search of Falls’ car revealed what they described as a “kill kit”: a collection of handcuffs, knives, axes, a sledgehammer, a bulletproof vest, another gun, shovels, bleach and other cleaning supplies.

“Based on the items this man had in his possession, it’s hard to imagine this was only going to be a one-time event for him,” said Steve Cooper, the Charleston Police Department’s chief of detectives.
“It’s likely that Mr. Falls is a serial killer,” he added to CBS News.
Falls was also found with a list of 10 names, all women. They were all still alive when police contacted them.
However, the deceased 45-year-old is now suspected in the disappearances and deaths of at least four prostitutes in the Las Vegas area, as well as a half-dozen women in Chillicothe, Ohio. Falls lived near Las Vegas during the time the women disappeared.

Charleston police praised Heather’s actions, with Cooper telling CBS News: “I believe she saved lives by shooting Mr. Falls, based on what he did to her and based on the items found in her car.”
“I knew he was there to kill me,” Heather said.
She will not be charged in the shooting, which police say was self-defense.
