The Dallas Morning News reported on Wednesday that Billy Chemirmir of Kenya “was indicted Tuesday in the deaths of six Dallas County women,” and an additional five capital murder counts in Collin County, Texas. Other print media, such as the Associated Press and the New York Post, picked up the story the following day. 

Yet as with Chemirmir’s initial indictments back in 2018, broadcast networks ABC, CBS, and NBC still have not breathed a word about this story in their flagship morning or evening news shows. 

The Kenyan national, who has been living in the U.S. illegally since at least 2010, is also accused of two counts of attempted murder. All of Chemirmir’s victims have been elderly women, at least three of whom were over 90 years old when he allegedly suffocated them to death.

One of Chemirmir's victims alleged that he broke into her apartment and knocked her to the ground. He then reportedly held a pillow over the 93-year-old woman's face until she lost consciousness while telling her to “go to bed. Don't fight me.”
