An Ohio woman has been charged in the deaths of at least four men she met for sex, authorities said, in what may be a burgeoning serial killer case.
Rebecca Auborn, 33, is accused of robbing and fatally drugging victims on Jan. 15, April 1, April 13 and June 17 of this year, according to a joint statement on “serial killings” from Attorney General Dave Yost and from Columbus Police Chief Elaine Bryant.
The indictment also includes allegations that she robbed and attempted to fatally drug a man on December 13 of last year.
“Don’t buy sex in Ohio – it ruins lives and could cost you yours,” Yost said in the release.
Auborn was scheduled to appear in a Franklin County courtroom Friday afternoon.
Detectives believe “there may be additional victims” and asked anyone familiar with “Auborn’s activities between December 2022 and August 2023” in northeast Columbus to call police.
Auborn was charged with four counts of murder, four counts of involuntary manslaughter, five counts of robbery, five counts of felonious assault, five counts of corrupting another with drugs, one count of tampering with evidence and four drug trafficking leaders.
Auborn’s defense attorney could not immediately be reached for comment Friday.
