The grisly discovery of three decomposing bodies wrapped in plastic in East Cleveland, Ohio has authorities on their heels this morning.
One body was found in a garage Friday, and two more on Saturday; one in the basement of an abandoned house, the other in a field nearby.
“According to authorities, all three victims appear to be young, African-American women,” CNN’s Katie Murray reports.
Now, police have a suspect in custody and are searching for clues.
“Thirty-five-year-old Michael Madison is now in custody after a standoff with police,” Murray reports.
“Madison was convicted in 2001 of attempted rape and is a registered sex offender, but has not been charged yet in connection to this case....Investigators think Madison could be a copy-cat, mimicking the crimes of convicted serial killer Anthony Sowell.”
