CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) – Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson on Wednesday tried to debunk theories that a serial killer is preying on black women.

Two of four missing women have been found and have been reunited with their families, Johnson said during a news conference on another topic.

Two who women were found dead, he stressed, were involved with drugs and prostitution. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office hasn't ruled either death a homicide yet, he said.

Police are talking to a person of interest in connection with the two deaths.

“It’s a little frustrating in terms of misinformation being put out there,” Johnson said.
