. Chapel Hill police issued a search
warrant this weekend inconnection with
a string of eight unsolved rapes that
occurred in the Triangle area between
1986 and 1991.
Investigators filed a warrant to seize
the property of suspect James Otis
Moore Jr., a former male nurse at UNC
Hospitals. Officials have not brought
formal charges against Moore.
Detective Rebecca Wilson of Chapel
Hill police filed the search warrant to
see if the suspect had any connection to
the rapes. Investigators fingerprinted
the suspect and took samples of his
pubic hair and of his blood.
According to police reports, all eight
rape victims were white, blond women
who lived in apartment complexes near
Police investigators believe the rapes
are connected directly to UNC Hospi
tals because of the crimes' close prox
imity to the medical complex.
Investigators teamed up with the
SOAR team, a Harnett County organi
zation that specializes in profiles of
sexual offenders, to discover the rapist's
identity. Given the information and evi
dence supplied, the team considered the
possibility of a health-care worker's
involvement in the rapes.
M.C. Teague of the N.C. Department
of Crime Control and Public Safety also
speculated that the rapist could be a
This belief was reinforced when
Teague received a call from a former
UNC Hospitals patient who said she
was sexually molested by a male nurse
in 1 98S. Teague said the former patient's
description of the male nurse matched
those by the other eight rape victims.
Each rape victim gave police investi
gators similar physical descriptions of
their assailants and similar accounts of
the crime. All eight women said the
man covered their eyes before he raped
them. Afterward, they said the assailant
removed all items of evidence and forced
them to take a shower.
One of the victims said her attacker
seemed to be concerned about her safety
during the incident. She said the

New faces on Student Congress may
5 black members to
By Shannon Crownover
An increase in the number of under
graduate black representatives will di
versify Student Congress next year.
Five black students were elected to
serve as representatives in the 1992-93
congress. Only one black student served
on this year's congress.
"It will be a positive change, because
we need the extra diversity in congress,"
Speaker Tim Moore said. "But this
year's congress was sensitive to the
concerns of minorities."
Eric Martin, Dist. 8, said it was frus
trating being the only black representa
tive in congress this year.
"It was extremely difficult to get
anything accomplished," Martin said.
"With more minorities in congress, they
will be able to get more done and will
have more influence."

chairman, said he thought having more

Disagreement between Moore, Young Republicans could divide conservatives
By Chandra McLean
UNC's Young Republicans passed a
resolution Friday prohibiting any deal
ings with Speaker Tim Moore or his
cohorts on the grounds that he sought to
solicit the aid of various members of the
Student Congress in order to facilitate
his own advancement.
Although several new conservative
representatives were elected tocongress,
this disagreement between Young Re
publicans and Moore may soften their
Maitri Klinkosum, a member of the
Young Republicans, said that Moore
encouraged several conservative stu
dents to run for congress, that he was
well aware of the fact they were running
and that he remained in contact with
them throughout the campaign.
Klinkosum said Moore told The Daily
Tar Heel he did not encourage conser

Chapel Hill resident John Foushee

feared town development eventually

"The first landfill is now right in the
middle of town, off of Plant Road,"
Foushee said. "Chapel Hill has grown
past it and has grown up almost against
the Eubanks Road site."

Klinkosum said Moore asked Lee
