Molesters murdered

The week's news at a glance.

Bellingham, Wash.

A Washington man turned himself in this week for the murders of two convicted child rapists. Michael Anthony Mullen, 36, said he picked his victims—Hank Adolf Eisses, 49, and Victor Manuel Vasquez, 68—from a sheriff’s Web site listing the addresses of convicted sex offenders. The men, who lived together, had been shot in the head; they were found hours after a man claiming to be an FBI agent arrived at their apartment and told them they were on an Internet “hit list,” a witness told police. Days after the murders, someone wrote an anonymous letter to a local paper, The Bellingham Herald, claiming responsibility and threatening to kill other sex offenders living in the area.
