EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio Police have resumed searching for possibly more victims after three bodies were found wrapped in plastic bags in a Cleveland suburb.
On Sunday morning, authorities walked through knee-high weeds in yards near where the bodies were found in East Cleveland and went door-to-door asking neighbors for any information that could help the case.
Mayor Gary Norton says a registered sex offender arrested after a police standoff Friday is a suspect in the three deaths. The mayor says the suspect has indicated he might have been influenced by Cleveland serial killer Anthony Sowell, who was convicted in 2011 of killing 11 women and sentenced to death.
In the most recent case, one body was found Friday in a garage. Two others were found Saturday - one in a backyard and the other in the basement of a vacant house.
