Winnipeg police have arrested an alleged serial killer in connection to the homicides of three women.

Shawn Cameron Lamb, 52, has been charged with second-degree murder of three sex-trade workers.

Lorna Blacksmith, Carolyn Sinclair and Tanya Nepinak were all previously reported missing.

Blacksmith disappeared in January of this year, while Sinclair and Nepinak went missing in December 2011 and September 2011, respectively.

Nepinak’s body hasn’t been located.

Lamb was arrested on June 21 in connection to a sexual assault involving a 36-year-old woman. While in custody, police became aware of his alleged involvement in the missing persons cases.

Police will work with agencies in other jurisdictions to investigate whether Lamb was involved in other cases.
