PLACENTIA – Police stopped hundreds of vehicles Tuesday night during a roadblock set up in Placentia to try to gather information about a serial killer targeting homeless men in Orange County.
A special task force of about 70 local and federal law enforcement officials set up a roadblock canvas from 6 to 10 p.m. in the 100 block of North Bradford Avenue, across the street from where 53-year-old James McGillivray was killed. He was the first victim of what police have called a “serious, dangerous serial killer.”
“The idea is to stop vehicles and talk to drivers who are in the proximity to the crime scene near the first homicide in Placentia,” Anaheim police Sgt. Bob Dunn said.
Drivers who were stopped were asked a series of questions, including if they were in the area or may have seen something on the day of the killing.
