(Newser) – Ohio cops have recovered the bodies of three women—found wrapped in the fetal position in garbage bags within a few hundred yards of each other in East Cleveland—and today they're expanding the search for more victims. Police have a 35-year-old registered sex offender in custody, though his name hasn't been released and he's not been charged, reports the AP. "The person in custody, some of the things he said to investigators, made us go back today," says the mayor of East Cleveland. "Hopefully, we pray to God, this is it."

The women were all believed to have been murdered within the last six to 10 days; CNN reports that all three are young black women. One was found in a garage, while the other two were found in a nearby abandoned house. The suspect indicated to police that he may have been influenced by convicted serial killer Anthony Sowell.

How about all of you take a step back, think before you speak and embarrass yourselves, and tell us all how would you speak if it were not with the anonymity of the internet. Lets build a steel cage and we can lick ourselves in and talk and fight until only one walks away. Most of you are cowards and if you want to step out from behind the curtain let me know.

Thanks to Zimmerman that he served justice BEFORE gangsta-rapper Trayvone Martin would go into action and rape or kill an innocent man or woman. Even if he wouldn't be shot by the hispanic guy, another Blackman would take trayvon's life, sooner or later, as it happens so many times in the Afro community.
