Central Park Rapist Bragged About Crime So Much That Neighbors Got Guns When he Was Released
The career criminal accused of raping a 73-year-old woman in New York’s Central Park on Wednesday bragged about how he murdered an elderly cleaning lady and terrified his neighbors so much that they bought guns to protect themselves when he was released from prison, it has been revealed.
David Albert Mitchell’s one-time girlfriend told how the accused rapist boasted about killing Barbara Flake in the tiny West Virginia community of Jenkinjones, an impoverished and tight knit community in the state’s southern coalfields.
Police determined Flake died from a blow to the head when they found her skull two years after she disappeared from her home in 2002. But there was never enough information or probable cause to arrest Mitchell, said Virginia State Police Sgt. C.F. Kane.
Authorities say David Albert Mitchell has been in and out of prison since he was 18. He was arrested twice on charges of raping elderly women, suspected but not charged in the murder of one female neighbor and acquitted of killing another.
Court records and prosecutors describe a man who drank heavily, was quick to threaten violence, never earned a high school diploma and may have been mentally ill.
Mitchell served eight years in a Virginia prison for the 2003 abduction of ex-girlfriend Saretta Mitchell and got out last year. Records show he violated probation three times, then apparently fled to New York, where police say he attacked a 73-year-old birdwatcher in Central Park near a memorial to peace-loving John Lennon.
