Manatee County sheriff's investigators in Bradenton, Fla., are looking into open cases in which Elias Abuelazam, the suspect in a series of fatal stabbings, may have been involved, WTVT-TV reports.
A representative of the Fountain Lakes apartment complex, which is listed as Abuelazam's residence in court documents, told the station that Abuelazam lived there from March 9 until May 18. A background check the complex did showed only traffic offenses, the representative said.
WTVT says the Manatee County Sheriff's Office says it has been contacted by and is working with the FBI:
