A dating app link-up may have lured two Houston-area men to their deaths in what could be the work of serial killers, Harris County sheriff’s investigators said Monday in warning the public to be wary of meeting strangers online.
Investigators didn’t publicly identify the app, but said the killers may have been targeting Asian men when they went after Glenser Soliman, a 44-year-old St. Luke’s Medical Center nurse whose body was found Feb. 25, and An Vinh Nguyen, a 26-year-old University of Houston student last seen March 31.
Both of their vehicles were found abandoned in the Spring area. Nguyen’s credit cards were also taken, though details were not available about whether items were stolen from Soliman.
Detectives warned there may be additional victims.
“It is possible that there were other victims, or victims that did get away who could give us more information,” said lead investigator Mike Ritchie at a Monday news conference.
Two cousins who lived together in the Spring area in northwest Harris County are suspected in the deaths, Ritchie said.
