    Hey guys. I was one of the HRT's (Human Remains Technicians) that first arrived on the scene AND has been there over the last few days. To be completely honest the whole neighborhood stunk, but not until you got within 4 or 5 houses you could smell the decomp. What i don't understand is the bodies were so badly decomped we could not even tell male or female, which means they were sitting for atleast a month and a half. Sheriffs department was at his house on 9/22/2009. Which means they are either completely stupid or just stupid for not being able to smell the decomp of a 2 week old body. The whole neighborhood would have smelled it. And BTW ,None of these are the girls from the west side that were taken in 03-04 and 05-06.....

    Hi RollinHearse - any idea why they aren't calling this guy a 'serial killer'? Hard to believe anybody could live around the kind of stench these bodies would give off..didn't the neighbors complain to anybody???? TIA

    This may be the highest body count in Cleveland since the notorious "Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Run"/Torso Murders case in the 1930s, which was never solved. In that case there were 12 victims.

    This is exactly what I was thinking about this morning. I was just at the Cleveland Police Museum earlier this month. They had a display about this case.

    I don't ever recall anything else with such a high body count in Cleveland.

    That one gets my vote for creepiest unsolved serial killer case ever. I remember first reading about it when I was a kid. Scary.

    The people commenting on this article are calling him "Tony" are saying he has been raping since 8th grade......also calling him the Lee Rd rapist. Mother and sister always protecting him.

    IMO

    Yep. The blog posts have the ring of authenticity because of that factor. Same name here---in eighth grade I was Tony, I grew up and became Anthony.

    (snip)
    According to Cleveland Police, sex crimes detectives went to Sowell’s home Thursday evening with a search warrant looking for evidence in that attack. Upon searching the home, detectives found two bodies in an advanced state of decomposition on the third floor of the home and what appears to be a freshly dug grave in the basement.

    Ken Robinson talked with neighbors of Sowell, one of whom says she gave him a ride home Thursday night, and during that ride, he confessed to her that he killed the two people whose bodies were found in the home. Before they got to his house, Sowell bailed out of the car and hasn't been seen since.
    I found an article where this "neighbor" mentioned above now has a different story about driving him around. I wonder if her story changed or if the press got it wrong. This whole story of hers has me scratching my head- why would she go look for him and then drive him around? I just don't get it!

    http://blog.cleveland.com/metro/2009...y_still_s.html

    From the link:

    Neighbor Debbie Madison saw commotion at Sowell's house Thursday. She heard talk of dead bodies inside and feared Sowell might be dead, so she went to Sowell's sister's home on East 130th Street. Sowell was resting on a couch inside.

    He asked for a ride home. Sowell started talking as they approached the house, Madison said.

    "He said it was true," Madison said. "That's when I became scared.

    "He told me, 'It's all gonna come out.' He said, 'That girl made me do it,' " Madison said.

    Instead of continuing to his home, Sowell asked Madison to drive him back to his sister's. She did.



    So which is correct-did he hop out of the car or did she drop him off at his sister's? Did she go to the police or straight to the media?

    These poor people who have loved ones missing. Thinking there's even a possibility this could have been where they met their fate.

    Police are also setting up a mobile command center at East 123rd Street and Soika Avenue where they are asking people with missing relatives to bring anything with potential DNA evidence. They hope it will help investigators determine the identity of the dead people found inside Sowell's Imperial Avenue home.

    I think they may have already had the presser. Fox 8 stated that they had the press conference. They said that he was arrested and they are continuing to search for bodies.

    http://www.fox8.com/news/wjw-bodies-...,3291855.story

    It sounds as if they had the press conference at 11:45 to ask the public to be on the lookout and arrested him after noon. (putting the various local news stories together)

    Wow- he was just walking around in plain sight. Someone spotted him and went to the police station and the police went to arrest him. Thank goodness he's no longer out there! Let's pray they keep him this time!

    LE is high-fiving that they got him? I think the observant passer-by "got him". He/she gets my vote.
