A possible serial rapist could be connected to at least ten attacks over the last two years.
It’s something Memphis Police say they’re on top of, even after an attack earlier this week at another apartment complex in southeast Memphis.
Meaghan Ybos and Whitney Wood stopped by WREG’s Live at 9 to chat about this latest serial rapist, what police should be doing about it, and why most advocacy surrounding rape in Memphis is not helpful.

People for the Enforcement of Rape Laws is a program of the Mid-South Peace and Justice Center to monitor law enforcement responses to sexual violence. Our goal is to end the law enforcement and political practices that effectively decriminalize sexual violence. To this end, we connect victims with information about their rights and equip individuals with tools to advocate for themselves and others and advocate for fair criminal justice policies. We urge you to learn more about America’s hidden rape crisis, where it has been exposed, and why it matters. We invite you to take action and support our efforts to make sure law enforcement takes rape seriously.
