Forget crazy “A” — there’s a lady killer loose in Rosewood and that seems far worse a predicament than receiving a sketchy text message! Not only did this ruthless fiend choke Alison DiLaurentis and then bludgeon her the point of no return but he/she drugged poor Maya St. Germain and claimed her life as well. Unfortunately though on Pretty Little Liars, this dangerous murderer has managed to elude the cops time and time again, and is still out there biding his/her time before he/she strikes again like a venomous snake hiding in the tall grass.
But we’re not waiting around for Detective Wilden to finish harassing Hanna, Spencer, Aria, and Emily about their friends’ gruesome deaths — we’re cracking this case once and for all! Will you help us? Take a look at our line-up below and feel free to drop a comment with the name of your top suspect!
Byron MontgomeryBear with us here -- we're going out on a limb with this accusation. However, we found it really odd that Alison DiLaurentis was all gung-ho about destroying Byron's office with Aria after learning that he and Meredith were having an affair. Could Byron have bee having an affair with Alison as well and then killed Maya thinking she had read details about it in Ali's journal. Well, that's one theory at least!
Jason DiLaurentisHe and Alison never got along and there were plenty of times he scared her (to the point where she ran over to Spencer's house to seek refuge). Additionally, he did an awful lot of late-night digging around his front yard in Pretty Little Liars Season 2 and was event spotted chatting up Maya towards the end of the season. Fun run-in or did he have an ulterior motive? Hmm.
Lucas GottesmanHe's proved just how violent and angry he is in Season 1 when he vandalized Alison's memorial. He then terrorized Hanna when the two of them took a boat ride to set off sparklers for Caleb's surprise party. Now? He's acting like a hardcore felon -- getting gruff with Aria, setting trash cans on fire, lurking around Rosewood late at night and so forth. We know Lucas had more than enough motive to kill Alison...but what did Maya do to offend him? Ay yi yi.
Melissa HastingsIf Jenna is one crazy bitch then Big Sis Hastings is off her rocker! She faked a good portion of her pregnancy and was caught red-handed on Alison's secret video tapes. She's an angry jealous girlfriend and she may have targeted Maya for knowing a wee too much about everyone's secrets courtesy of Alison's journals. Also, she spent a lot of time hanging out with Garrett who was last seen giving Maya a ride from the bus station. For all we know there are two killers out there but taking into account how Mel sometimes seems a bit schizo we're not going to dismiss her quite yet from the Who Killed Maya lineup!
Nate St. GermainNathan has been caught in a lie one too many times to be trusted. He appeared out of nowhere and is always lurking about wherever Emily is. In fact, he seems obsessed with her in a totally stalkerish way and even got scary at one point during episode 3.08 talking about how he wanted to kill Garrett Reynolds in cold blood. Could harmless seeming Nate have something to do with Maya's death? Perhaps there are TWO killers on the loose. Our theory is that he's actually not Maya's cousin but rather her ex boyfriend from bootcamp!
