PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The arrest of the suspected “Kensington Strangler” has brought relief to at least one home in the city.

Darrah Goldberg’s daughter, Elaine, was the first murdered victim of the Kensington Strangler. She says she had no doubt that he would be captured at some point.

“Oh I knew, I knew he was going to be caught, because I had a feeling he knew the area of Kensington, because if he didn’t he wouldn’t have known all those little backstreets where Elaine was killed on Ruth Street, and where Nicole was killed, and know exactly where to go to be not seen.”

Darrah Goldberg says she is relieved that they caught the suspect, so that he can’t hurt or kill anyone anymore.
