Danueal Drayton Arrest
Danueal Drayton, 27 years old as of 2018, was arrested last week, 24 July 2018 in North Hollywood, Los Angeles and is set to be extradited to New York in connection with the murder of one woman and the rape of another – both of whom police officials said he met through, Tinder, an online dating apps.
Police are in the process of unraveling the extent of a potential serial killer’s carnage after he made claims about murders that have yet to be confirmed by investigators.
Danueal Drayton Murder of Samantha Stewart and Rape
Drayton was on the wanted list by police the murder of a nurse in Queens who was found dead in her home a few weeks ago, after she met Drayton on the dating app Tinder, New York Police Department officials said.
Upon his arrest, Drayton claimed that he strangled a man in the Bronx, although New York police sources said there are no unsolved murders in that area that fit his description. Detectives are however not ruling out the statements, and they are looking for similar cases across the border in Westchester County, New York.
As of today, 30 July 2018, Police in New York have only connected Drayton to the Queens murder of the nurse, Samantha Stewart, and a separate rape in Brooklyn.
The “common denominator in these cases — one being murder and one being a rape — is dating websites,” Shea said at the time. “This individual is known to us and believed by us to be using dating websites to meet women and victimize women.”

Upon being taken into custody in Los Angeles, Drayton was charged with murder, forcible rape, sexual penetration by foreign object and false imprisonment, according to prosecutors.
The case was filed 26 July 2018 and the Bail set at $1.25 million, prosecutors said. Initial reports do not specify whether Drayton had retained or has been assigned a defense attorney.
