Upstate New York's Bike Path Rapist - Associated Content - associatedcontent.comIt wasn’t until September 29, 1990, that the bike path rapist killed his first victim, Linda Yalem, a Buffalo university student. She was sexually assaulted and murdered in nearby Amherst, not far from Buffalo. A prostitute was murdered next, her body discovered beside the railroad track jogging path. A 14 year old girl was strangled and raped on her way to school in 1994, but survived. At that point, the rapist-murderer seemed to have retired with a total of nine rapes and two murders.
