Billy Chemirmir Bio – Billy Chemirmir Wiki
Billy Kipkorir Chemirmir is a Kenyan convicted murderer and suspected serial killer accused of the murders of older women in Dallas, Texas, and its surrounding suburbs. As of June 2022, Chemirmir has been indicted for 22 murders.
Billy Chemirmir is 49 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
A man accused of killing 22 older women in the Dallas area is standing trial for the death of one of the victims Monday.
Billy Chemirmir, 49, will appear in a Dallas court for the murder of Mary Brooks, 87, who was found dead on the floor of her home in Richardson, Texas, in January 2018.
Chemirmir is already serving a life sentence without parole for the smothering death of 81-year-old Lu Thi Harris in March 2018 after they met at a Walmart supermarket.
If convicted of the murder of Brooks, Chemirmi will receive the same punishment from the court, reported NBC News Monday.
In 2020, Chemirmir, a former health care worker, was charged with the deaths of 14 older adults in Dallas and Collin Counties between 2016 and 2018. Civil lawsuits name him as a defendant in at least eight more.
“Chemirmir used his healthcare experience to his advantage, targeting and exploiting seniors, some of the most vulnerable people in our community,” then-Plano police chief Gregory W. Rushin said in a March 2018 press conference. “This is terribly disturbing.”
An investigation into Chemirmir began in March 2018 when Mary Bartel, 91 years old at the time, said she survived one of his alleged. She told police that he forced his way into her apartment at a senior living centre, smothered her with a pillow, and took off with her jewellery after she passed out.
Most of Chemirmir’s alleged victims were killed in the same manner, with the 49-year-old allegedly forcing his way into apartments of seniors living in an independent community centre or entering their homes under the guise of being a maintenance worker.
Chemirmir was spotted by police the day after the attack on Bartel in the parking lot of his apartment complex holding jewellery and cash. He had thrown a red jewellery box away, which contained documents that led Dallas police to the home of Harris, who, according to CBS, was found dead in her bedroom with lipstick smeared on her pillow.
In 2020, Chemirmir pleaded not guilty to all charges, and his lawyers said that the cases against him are largely circumstantial. But authorities say that they have a mountain of evidence, including surveillance video, DNA samples, and Bartel’s eyewitness account.
Before his 2021 trial involving Harris’ death, the Kenyan immigrant with permanent resident status in the U.S., Chemirmir was held in the Dallas County Jail on an $11.6 million bond.
