The gruesome 2005 murder of Rashwan Brazell went unsolved for 12 years before police made an arrest in February 2017. Authorities believe that the suspect, Kwauhuru Govan, could possibly be a serial killer.
At the time, Kwauhuru Govan was already in custody. He was indicted in November 2016 for the 2004 murder of 17 year-old Sharabia Thomas. DNA found under the victim's fingernails matched Govan.
Both victims lived within blocks of Govan's residence in Brooklyn, New York. Brazell and Govan were neighbors.
Now police are investigating whether Govan may be responsible for a third victim, an unidentified John Doe, whose remains were found five months after Rashawn Brazell was killed.
