Darryl Littlejohn is the still the prime suspect in the brutal rape and murder of Imette St. Guillen. He has not been charged with the crime but the investigators and crime labs are working hard to see if they can connect Littlejohn to the rape & murder of St. Guillen. Littlejohn is still being held at Rikers Island on a parole violation.
In addition, police are looking to see if Littlejohn is connected to any of the other recent rapes in the area where the suspect fits his description and MO.
Fox News reported the following:
“On Thursday, Littlejohn was removed from a Rikers Island jail and taken to a Queens courthouse, where a judge gave investigators permission to place him in a lineup for a sex attack that happened on Oct. 16, 2005, in the Forest Hills neighborhood.
A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that the Queens case was one of three unsolved sex attacks — including one more in Queens and one on Long Island — that may be linked to Littlejohn. All of them involved a man who abducted his victims late last year using a van, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation had not been completed.
During the lineup at the 112th Precinct stationhouse, the victim asked detectives to order each man in the lineup — including the 5-foot-7 Littlejohn — to shout "Shut up!" before concluding that her attacker was taller than any of them, O'Donnell said.
Prosecutors later confirmed the victim had not made an identification and Littlejohn had not been charged.”
So where do investigators stand now? According to ABC:
“Darryl Littlejohn is certainly not in the clear. He is being investigated, sources say, by federal authorities for his possible involvement in a drug ring that is tied to at least one murder.
As for the St. Guillen case, we're told police are back at his South Jamaica residence tearing up some piping and removing some floors as the search for additional physical evidence continues.”
