The hunt is on in East Cleveland, Ohio for more possible victims after three women's bodies, wrapped in plastic were discovered.
Authorities say that 35-year old Michael Madison has been arrested -- after bodies were found near his apartment.
East Cleveland police chief Ralph Spotts says volunteers are helping authorities
(SOUNDBITE) (English) RALPH SPOTTS, EAST CLEVELAND POLICE CHIEF, SAYING:
"But we do believe there may be at least one or two more people involved here, what I mean it may be one or two more victims. That's another reason why we're doing this. So, we don't want, try to understand, we don't want to keep going over the same area. But nobody here is a professional, we don't want anybody to risk anything and get hurt. We kind of want to be as thorough as we can, so we don't keep repeating where we're going."
Neighbors are surprised.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED NEIGHBOR
"He's been in my step mother's house before at a party or two. You know, so I see this guy all the time. To me, he was a little odd."
The discoveries are reminiscent of a 2009 case, when 11 bodies were found near the home of Cleveland's Anthony Sowell, who was convicted of murder two years later.
