Tooth Fairy Massacres ‘Perfect Families’

The Leeds Home – in the North Park area of Buffalo where the Leeds family was slaughtered in their beds by a killer whom the press have dubbed the Tooth Fairy because of the deep marks he leaves in his victims.  According to police, Mrs. Leeds and her two sons (8 and 10) were all shot in their beds.  Mr. Leeds dies [sic] of stab wounds.  It is thought that a knife was used on Mr. Leeds because he was murdered first and the killer didn’t want to alert the rest of the family to the horror that was coming.

According to an FBI profiler, killer may be choosing families not individual victims

CRIME BEAT

The Tooth Fairy has brutally murdered an entire family while they slept in their home and police are still no closer to even a suspect.  This has lead many to wonder if investigators have dropped the ball on this investigation.  This madman seems to have no M.O. other than the choice of victim.  There is no apparent pattern that could lead police to his next target.  And the killer has left precious few clues on the crime scene.

The one thing that can be said about local police is that they were smart enough to know right away that they were out of their element and called the FBI to take over the scene immediately.  Certainly the national database used by the FBI can more quickly connect the Leeds murder with any potential other cases, but with no apparent pattern, it is hard to see who they will be able to take the investigation much further.

Killer leaves few clues
