WASHINGTON (AP) — The man suspected in rape cases along the East Coast says he doesn't know why he couldn't stop attacking women for nearly two decades.

Aaron Thomas told The Washington Post in a series of phone interviews from jail (http://bitly.com/W0sRiP) that women were objects to him and that he doesn't think he is crazy. But he says he knows something is wrong with him.

Thomas is expected to plead guilty this month to the Halloween adbuction of three women in 2009 in Prince William County and a Loudoun County rape in 2001.

Thomas was arrested in Connecticut in March 2011 after a multi-state law effort to catch a man believed responsible for rapes and other attacks on 17 women since 1997 in Maryland, Virginia, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
