Task force targets Jones serial rapist

A task force has been created to bring the Jones County serial rapist to justice.

Jones County Sheriff Larry Dykes it's about time the attacker of four elderly Jones County women is taken off the streets. A composite drawing of the suspect shows a 5'8" Hispanic man.

Dykes says for the last several weeks a task force made up of several Jones County deputies, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, and U.S. Customs has been working around the clock on the case.

He says the new task force has received many tips but none has panned out.

"There is still a $50,000 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of this person," says Sheriff Larry Dykes.
