Assuming the Cipher used here has the same number of letters as that of the name of the killer "Costa", "Pedro", & "Terry" are possible candidates.
Since the cipher used here is dqvxf it can be observed that the name Costa has the closest alphabetical distance with respect to the letters in the cipher as shown below
D ==> D-1 ==> C
Q ==> Q-2 ==> O
V ==> V-3 ==> S
X ==> X-4 ==> T
F ==> F-5 ==> A
