FBI Informant Turned Serial Killer Linked To 2004 Murder In New 'Dateline' Special

Scott Kimball, convicted of four murders committed between 2003 and 2004, is believed to have killed as many 21 people across the western U.S.

A former FBI informant previously convicted for murdering four people has been linked to yet another killing from 2004, according to an upcoming news special.

Set to air Friday, the “Dateline” episode will feature NBC correspondent Keith Morrison reporting on how authorities are now linking career criminal Scott “Hannibal” Kimball to the 2004 murder and dismemberment of 26-year-old Catrina Powell in Westminster, Colorado, according to a press release issued Tuesday. Her naked body was found in the alley of a strip mall with the hands chopped off.

A resident of Boulder County, Kimball killed at least four people in the early 2000s, all while working as an informant for the FBI.

He is currently serving 70-year sentence for the murders of Kaysi McLeod, 19, Jennifer Marcum, 25, LeAnn Emry, 24, and Terry Kimball, 60—the latter of whom was his uncle—committed between 2003 and 2004. Additionally, Kimball allegedly first used the alias “Hannibal” to become friends with Emry, according to a 2009 report by ABC News (he was convicted later that year after pleading guilty).

 

He had been sprung from prison in 2002 to assist in the FBI’s investigation into a drug case. But less than a month after he was released, authorities say he started his killing spree.

Both local and federal agents believe Kimball is responsible for killing many more—as many as 21—people in Colorado and across the western United States, the Denver Post reports.

Just last year, Kimball was charged on suspicion of attempted murder and escape, according to the Denver Post.

 

"A Deal with the Devil," will air at 9 p.m. Friday on NBC, according to a release from "Dateline." The special will feature interviews with police detectives, FBI agents and victim families.
