Summary: Weekly report of U.S. military deaths in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan), compiled from U.S. Department of Defense News Releases. … One-year retrospective: One year ago today, on July 6, 2009 Aubrey Immelman reported that the Gaffney, South Carolina killer who murdered male and female victims ranging in age from 15 to 83 in less than a week did not fit the profile of a serial killer (as labeled by the media) and could be more aptly described as a spree killer. As such, I predicted that — unlike most serial killers — he was unlikely to be captured alive to face charges. He was shot dead shortly afterwards in a standoff with police.
