ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA9) -- Authorities investigating the murder of an Alexandria music teacher are canvassing her neighborhood with flyers of her suspected killer.

The Alexandria Police Department released a sketch of a man they believe could be connected with the death of 59-year-old Ruthanne Lodato, who was killed last Thursday in Alexandria. Her mother's care giver was also shot after Lodato answered a knock at her door Thursday night.

Police want to remind the public that the sketch of the suspect is a compilation of facial features as recollected by various witnesses.

If you recognize the person in this sketch or come into contact with anybody who looks like the man sketched, please contact the Alexandria Police Department at 703-746-6864.

Police are looking similarities between Lodato's murder and the murder of Ronald Kirby in November. However, experts are reluctant to call the killings the work of a serial killer just yet.
