Phoenix police have released hundreds of pages of documents that detail their investigation into the Baseline Killer. The paperwork obtained Wednesday by ABC15 News reveals that police have at least 10 names of possible suspects that they have looked into, and have ruled out some of those people.

In one double murder case, police found an investigative lead on the Internet site

The documents reveal information on nine cases ranging from a double homicide to sexual assaults, robberies and kidnappings.

The new information includes police reports and narratives that describe where and who police are looking at in the investigation. They also discuss investigative leads; however, much of the information was redacted.

According to the documents, the Baseline Killer posed as a homeless person in one incident, pushing a shopping cart toward a woman in a parking lot near 32nd Street and Thomas Road. He forced himself into her car and told her to perform oral sex or die. She fought him off, the records said.

In that incident, the man believed to be the Baseline Killer was wearing gloves, a mask and clothing that covered his entire body.

The records show police have worked to obtain partial hand prints, DNA and ballistics reports to build their case; but those results were blacked out on the paperwork.

The Baseline Killer has been linked to eight deaths and is believed to be responsible for 23 incidents, including rapes and robberies.
