‘Another family fears their mother was killed by Billy Chemirmir, the serial murder suspect who is accused of smothering older women before stealing jewelry and other items in Dallas and Collin counties.
Diane Delahunty, 79, died Dec. 3, 2017, at Preston Place Senior Living Apartments in Plano. At the time, though three rings were missing from her fingers, police told her family she had died of natural causes.
But the medical examiner changed her cause of death to “undetermined” in July, and her daughter, Lori Delahunty, said Monday police have told her Chemirmir killed her mother.
Her death is the 20th that has been linked publicly to Chemirmir. Two other women survived attacks in Frisco and Plano.
Chemirmir has been indicted on 12 counts of capital murder in Dallas and Collin counties, and two counts of attempted capital murder. Including Delahunty, eight more North Texas families have said police believe Chemirmir killed their loved ones.
Police and prosecutors in Collin and Dallas counties have declined to comment on the ongoing case.’ https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2019/12/24/another-family-claims-serial-murder-suspect-billy-chemirmir-killed-their-loved-one-the-20th-in-north-texas/
