LARGO, Md. (AP) — An FBI profiler has concluded that two unusual double slayings in the Largo area are not connected at all.

Prince George’s County police sought out the profiler to look into the slayings, which appeared to be too similar to be coincidental.

But Detective Bernard Nelson says the similarities were just that — “weird coincidences.”

In January, Karen Lofton and her 16-year-old daughter, Karissa, were found shot to death inside their locked home. In March, the bodies of Delores Dewitt and her 20-year-old daughter, Ebony, were found in a burning car that had been stolen that day.

Both slayings occurred on Mondays, within a half-mile of each other. Police have no suspects in either case. But investigators tell The Washington Post they’re making progress. –-
