Robert Koehler is currently jailed in neighboring Miami-Dade County, where he faces charges for assaulting a woman in the early '80s as well, Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony said in a Tuesday morning news conference.

New charges have been filed against an accused serial sex predator dubbed the “Pillowcase Rapist,” who has been linked by DNA evidence to more than a half-dozen cases dating back to the 1980s. Cold-case detectives with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said during a press conference Tuesday they believe 62-year-old Robert Koehler may have committed as many as 45 rapes. So far, advanced DNA technology has helped cops to connect Koehler to six rapes that took place in Broward County near four decades ago. “This guy is a horrible, evil, dangerous predator,” one of the alleged victims, who identified herself as Catherine, said...

Robert Koehler: Reclaiming a lost sense of community

Robert Koehler: Let's face the truth of American history

When you’re losing the game, summon the commies. And conservative white America has been losing for quite some time — losing control of the future, that is.

In other words, racism can’t (openly) be racism anymore. That’s where Karl Marx comes in.

Robert Koehler: Vulnerability in the moment

I’m in the human stew right now, you might say: drowning in politics, technology, the weather and my own crazy ego. I’m trying to write a column. What makes this one different . . .well, I’ve been forced today to set aside my certainties, norms and expectations — virtually all of them. Certainty number one: that my computer will keep functioning as I write.
