Serial killer has 'change of heart,' surrenders to police

(Logan, UT) A serial killer who murdered four women over the past two years in the Logan area has surrendered to police.

"Jason Mitchell Burnett has confessed to the so-called Daycare killings and is cooperating fully with our investigation," confirmed Detective Kim Stanley today in a standing-room only news conference. "He knows details of the crimes that have not been released to the public--we are
one hundred percent certain it's him."

Sources within the police department say that Burnett has also disclosed the location of his final victim, Leticia Armington.

Burnett's victims were single mothers, all of whom disappeared on their way to pick up children from daycare. The body of the first victim, Susan Bikstra, was found in her apartment in May of 2008. Amita Syed and Jodie-Lynn Hawke were left inside their cars, which were driven to
remote areas and abandoned.

Asked to speculate as to why Burnett surrendered, Detective Stanley said, "The only explanation he's offered is that he woke up this morning feeling unsupportable guilt over his acts of violence."
