A significant number of homeless people in Southern California are increasingly relying on shelters as a safe place to sleep after the separate stabbing deaths of three homeless men. Public safety authorities say they suspect there is a serial killer stalking the homeless.

Authorities in Orange County believe one man killed three homeless men and as a result demand for beds at some shelters was up as much as 40% in the last couple of days, while other shelters have been inundated with calls from frightened homeless people wondering if the killer has been caught, whom he is targeting and where they can go?
