Neighbors of Suspected Serial Stabber: ‘It’s a Relief to Know That He Is out of the Neighborhood’

Patricia Emenpour, Flint Journal, August 12, 2010

Neighbors of a house that appears to belong to the suspected serial stabber– who was earlier identified as Elias Abuelazam–say the man moved into his home a month to a month and a half ago.


“It’s a little bit scary knowing that I was two houses down from a possible serial stabber,” said Taylor Strang, 20, of Flint.

Her mother, Carrie Strang, 43, said she had seen a green blazer in the driveway, one that fit the police description of the vehicle.

Carrie Strang, who woke up this morning to find state police cars outside, said she didn’t contact authorities because he was a dark Middle Eastern man and the description said he was white.
