RENO, Nev. - Police in Reno, Nev., are asking for help to find the man who killed Brianna Denison, a University of Nevada student abducted almost a month ago.

The Reno (Nev.) Gazette-Journal reported Sunday that police have linked Denison's abduction to at least two other sexual assaults in the area.

"We're entering a phase of the investigation now that is going to continue to need the assistance (of the public)," said Reno Police Deputy Chief Jim Johns. "I want to re-encourage members of our community to focus on the suspect's description and on the suspect's vehicle description."

Denison, 18, disappeared from a friend's house near the Reno campus Jan. 20. Her body was found Friday in a field.

"Somewhere in our community there is a wife, a mom, a girlfriend, a sister who recognizes this suspect," Johns said.
