Business Insider reports Miami police have arrested a man who they believe raped 44 women in the 1980s. Police only found the 60-year-old after his son was arrested on an unrelated case. The son's DNA matched a sample held by police as evidence connected to a 1983 rape case. William Koehler lives Palm Bay, Florida, and was arrested last weekend. The alleged 'Pillowcase Rapist' has been charged with two felony counts of sexual battery. However, police believe they can connect him to the rapes of more than 40 women. Koehler's DNA sample had been held for decades. After the sample was connected to Koehler, police followed him to a public area and obtained DNA swabs from things he had touched.
