A man who claims to be a suspect in three unsolved murders has come forward to proclaim his innocence because he wants to get “the monkey” off his back.
“I’ve been told I’m a suspect in the crime but I haven’t done anything, nothing,” Steven Hainsworth said, referring to the murders of Phyllis Harrison, Beverley Hanley and Stephen Newton.
The Adelaide Major Crime Squad in South Australia announced that they have linked three unsolved cases via forensic evidence and are now looking for the same person for all three murders. The victims were killed between 1998 and 2011.
“I’m not a serial killer, I’ve killed no one” Mr Hainsworth told 9 News.
“I hope the person that is responsible gets caught, so the monkey is off my back and the people that doubted me, well you can apologise.”
The 43-year-old has not been charged, or even arrested in relation to the murders.
