Police in Leesburg, Virginia are investigating whether the suspect in a three-state stabbing spree is responsible for another unsolved death.
Leesburg Police Chief Joseph Price says Elias Abuelazam was in the area in March 2009 when 44-year-old Jammie Lane was stabbed.
At one point, Abuelazam lived directly across from him in a townhouse community.
Abuelazam was arrested late Wednesday waiting to board a flight to his native Israel at the Atlanta airport.
He was charged with attempted murder in a July 27 stabbing in Michigan.
But police had suspected connections to other stabbings in Michigan, Ohio and Virginia -- leaving a total of 5 people dead and 13 injured.
If authorities connect Abuelazam to Lane's death, he could face the death penalty. Michigan does not have capital punishment.
Meanwhile, Israeli police say Abuelazam was a suspect in a separate stabbing attack in Israel earlier this year, but charges were never pressed.
