Giles Warrick: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know


Updated Nov 14, 2019 at 3:44pm



Giles Warrick is the 60-year-old South Carolina man who is accused of being the “Potomac River rapist” who murdered a Washington D.C. intern and raped nine other women during a seven-year crime spree in the 1990s, authorities alleged.

Forensic genealogy allowed authorities to identify Warrick, who will be charged with first-degree murder and charges relating to the multiple sexual assault, authorities revealed in a press conference on November 14, 2019. Authorities called Warrick’s alleged acts “heinous” and said it took a “collective effort” over multiple years to identify the suspect. The same technique was previously used to apprehend the alleged Golden State Killer, as well as other cases throughout the country.

Between 1991 and the intern’s murder seven years later, the Potomac River Rapist “brazenly and brutally preyed upon women in the Washington area,” the FBI reports. Jail records reviewed by Heavy show that Giles Daniel Warrick was booked into the Horry County Jail in South Carolina on November 13, 2019 at 3:29 a.m. No bail has been set. Warrick is from Conway, South Carolina.

“Victims were attacked in their homes and included an 18-year-old babysitter and a mother whose infant was in the house at the time of the attack. Seven of the nine attacks have been linked by DNA, and all are linked by the offender’s similar violent methods,” the FBI wrote about the Potomac River Rapist before Warrick was arrested.

Seven of the rapes occurred in Montgomery County, Maryland, and two of them occurred in D.C.


Christine Mirzayan, a National Academy of Sciences Intern, Was Bludgeoned to Death by the Rock-Wielding Serial Rapist



One young woman, Christie Mirzayan, 29, lost her life, the FBI says, at the hands of the serial rapist. At the time of her murder, Mirzayan was a National Academy of Sciences intern.


The FBI explained that Christine Mirzayan “was the last known victim of the Potomac River Rapist. On the evening of August 1, 1998, the 29-year-old had walked to a friend’s cookout in the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C. Recently married, Mirzayan had come to Washington from San Francisco for an internship at the National Academy of Sciences and was living in student housing at Georgetown University.”

When the cookout was over, “a group of her friends decided to go out dancing, but Mirzayan declined because she was recovering from the flu. She started to walk home by herself, but she never made it. On her way, she was raped and repeatedly bludgeoned with a 73-pound rock,” the FBI says.
