    An Arizona man is accused of a stunning murder spree in which he killed nine people in three weeks -- a rampage that would make him one of the most prolific serial killers in the state's history.

    Cleophus Cooksey Jr., 35, was arrested on Dec. 17, 2017, after police responded to a call of shots fired in Phoenix. When officers arrived they found Cooksey’s mother and stepfather dead. Police said Thursday they did not link Cooksey to the other homicides until he was in custody.

    Cooksey's other alleged victims include the brother of his ex-girlfriend and various men and women of black, white and Hispanic race and ethnicity, AZ Central reported.

    The victims include:

    - Two men, Andrew Remillard, 27, and Parker Smith, 21, who were discovered dead Nov. 27.
    - One man, Salim Richards, 35, found critically wounded on Dec. 2, and later died at the scene. It was not immediately clear if Richards knew the suspect. Police said there were signs of robbery at the crime scene and a hangun was appeared to have been taken.
    - On Dec. 11, Jesus Bonifacio Real, 25, the brother of Cooksey’s former girlfriend, was murdered.
    - On Dec. 13, Latorrie Beckford, 29, was shot and killed.
    - On Dec. 16, 2017, Kristopher Cameron, 21, was discovered shot to death in a field. Police said Cameron appeared to have met with the suspect for a drug interaction. On the same day, Maria Villanueva, 43, was found dead. Villanueva was kidnapped from her car after the suspect approached her vehicle. The two drove off before Villanueva was found with signs of sexually assault and murdered, police said.
    - On Dec. 17, Rene Cooksey, 56, the suspect’s mother, and his stepfather, Edward Nunn, 54, were shot and killed. Cooksey was then arrested.

    Cooksey has a long criminal history, AZ Central reported. The suspect was convicted of manslaughter when he was 18. While in prison, he was found guilty of assaulting prison employees, drug possession and fighting. He was released from prison in January 2015 and received a DUI in November of that year.

    The suspect took up rapping following his prison release, going by the name "King Playbola." he posted videos on YouTube showcasing his skills.

    Cooksey was arrested again in May 2016 on a "technical violation" and went back to prison. He was freed June 20, 2016, but was arrested and booked in December due to another arrest warrant. On July 28, 2017, Cooksey was released. Four months later, he allegedly engaged in the murderous spree.

    Cooksey, the grandson of a civil-rights leader Roy L. Cooksey, had a troubled childhood. He moved out when he was 16 years old. The suspect said he was abused by his father and was hospitalized when he was 12 years old.


    The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office will decide what Cooksey would be charged with during the investigation. Police have asked the public for their help if they have any information on the suspect or murders.
