The bodies of seven women found over the weekend in northwest Indiana have been linked to an unidentified possible serial killer who is in police custody and led authorities to at least three of the bodies, officials said Monday.
The flurry of grisly discoveries began when Hammond police responded to a call of an unresponsive person Friday evening at a Motel 6 and found the strangled body of a woman identified as Afrika Hardy, 19. As part of the investigation into her death, police executed a search warrant on a home in Gary, where they also took the person of interest into custody, Hammond Police Lt. Richard Hoyda told the Chicago Tribune in an email.

The man, whose name is being withheld pending charges, later confessed, Hoyda said

In a statement, Gary Police Cpl. Gabrielle King there is no serial killer..
The suspect Hammond... only admitted too ad led he cops to 3 bodies... surely that does not make him a serial killer right?

anyway this is kind of breaking news and they found all 7 Bodies within hours of each other. wouldn't be all that surprised I they don' find a whole lot more bodies before the weeks out

What the hell is wrong with some people! Who could do something like that and be able to sleep at night. What the human species is capable of is quite frightening...

OP Source:

Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. called the person of interest a “serial killer” in a Facebook post Sunday afternoon and said he has “admitted to a couple of homicides in Hammond,” that date back to 1994 or 1995.


Too bad he was never caught back in the 90's, 7 young ladies might still be alive.


The man, whose name is being withheld pending charges, later confessed

So the killers name is being withheld but they have no problem releasing the names of the victims!

So sad!

Only 7?

I would bet that he has a larger tally than that, on the prowl for that long.
Sad story.
Worse yet, when they match DNA or dental records to missing women, there are some families that will get bad news. It will give them closure, but they will no longer have any hope of ever seeing their loved one alive again.

You're probably right, serial killers are known to keep a few for themselves. It's sickening to even think about.

This is part of the problem: (from the OP source)

Officials said he is a convicted sex offender who served time in Texas for sexual assault and may have been responsible for two murders in the mid-1990s.


Sex offenders are not monitored well enough, not even close.

Recently I discovered a coworker of mine was a sex offender. He was watching hundreds of youtube videos during his shift, of little girls singing. I thought it odd behavior for an adult male to be viewing that many videos of children. I asked my husband what he thought about it, he suggested I checked Megan's Law website. I did and he wasn't on it. Fast forward a few months and I saw that he was still watching these videos but that day one of the little girls resembled my niece and it freaked me out. (The videos were from tv shows, mostly European programing.) So this time I googled his name and discovered he is listed on Megan's Law, just not in my city, he was listed in a Southern California city. Lewd and lascivious acts with a minor under 14, twice. He was not registered in town he has lived in and worked in for the last 2 years. How is it that a registered sex offender can live across the state for 2 years and authorities have no idea about it?

Sex offenders, especially ones violent in nature and those that harm children, need to be monitored more closely then they currently are.

7 too many in my way of counting.

Jenny, they have no remorse, a psychopath is disconnected to the act. So they psychiatrists say. But then I think, if they are so disconnected why the need to do the act, it is fuelling something emotionally.

Found out someone I met years ago once was a serial rapist. He had dead eyes. I remember thinking, he has dead eyes.

The guy at your work, I hope you told management? Pedo's are very damaged minds.

I agree with zazzafrazz. You need to report the guy. He is obligated by law to inform authorities when he moves to a new address, iirc.

I reported him that very second, to the DOJ on Megan's Law website and also to the local law enforcement specialist who handles Megan's Law and sex offenders. I did it and another of my co-workers did it. I could not have lived with my self if I hadn't and someone else was hurt by that man.

He still isn't listed as living in this town, I call and do a new DOJ report every Monday morning after I check Megan's Law website. I've actually been thinking about contacting the local State Rep, Mayor and whoever else will be able to get that site updated.

I actually wrote a poem about it too:
The Face of a Predator

Good job! And keep dogging him. He should be arrested if they find him living at a new address without reporting t to local authorities.
