Following the East Coast Rapist case
Aaron Thomas has been indicted in a Halloween 2009 attack on three teenagers in Prince William County, and his rape and abduction trial is scheduled to begin in January. After the Halloween rapes, police tied DNA from the scene to a series of more than a dozen rapes and other attacks in Virginia, Maryland, Connecticut and Rhode Island dating to the 1990s.
