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
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.
The man, whose name is being withheld pending charges, later confessed
Too bad he was never caught back in the 90's, 7 young ladies might still be alive.
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.
