Ohio Suspect's Old Home Searched for More Bodies

Wednesday, 02 Dec 2009 12:36 PM

 

EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A search for possible victims of a sex offender charged with killing 11 women and living in a Cleveland house amid their remains has expanded to his former home.

FBI agents with cadaver dogs searched Wednesday at the recently renovated East Cleveland home where 50-year-old Anthony Sowell lived before going to prison for 15 years for a 1989 attempted rape.

The search didn't immediately turn up any remains.

Sowell's home in Cleveland was searched for three weeks after police went there to arrest him Oct. 29 on a sexual assault complaint and found the first of 10 bodies and a skull.

He has been charged with 11 counts of aggravated murder and could face the death penalty if convicted.
