Bodies found in plastic bags

EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) -- The East Cleveland mayor says police will continue a search Sunday for possibly more victims after three bodies, believed to be female, were found wrapped in plastic bags about 150 yards apart.

Mayor Gary Norton said a 35-year-old suspect has not yet been charged. He said the man is a registered sex offender and led authorities who questioned him to believe he might have been fascinated with convicted killer Anthony Sowell.

Sowell was convicted in 2011 of killing 11 women and hiding their remains around his Cleveland home. He is in prison on a death sentence.

Police say a body was found Friday in a garage and two other bodies were found Saturday -- one in a backyard and the other in the basement of a vacant house.
