Questions without answers about Dennis Donohue

   Last September, after DNA evidence linked Dennis P. Donohue to the 1993 strangling of Joan Giambra, Deputy Buffalo Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda made a strong statement about Donohue at a police press conference.

   "It's possible he's a serial killer," Derenda said. "He is a person of interest in two other homicide cases."

   Donohue can't be tried in one of those two cases, and investigators have no physical evidence or eyewitnesses in the other.

   So -- barring any news about Donohue's expected appeal of his conviction for murdering Giambra -- we may have heard the last of Donohue.

   A man expected to go down in local law-enforcement circles as a murderer, but not as a serial killer.
