    Can someone explain why so many people in Cleveland were asking what Sowell looked like as long ago as 17-18 hours? Wasn't his picture plastered everywhere? We had links to it. I realize that not everyone has internet but I would think that the TV news channels available in Cleveland would have splashed photos across the screen every few minutes. It seems odd that so many people were even unclear as to the man's race.

    Well I sure hope the person who came in and reported him gets the reward money...At least someone was paying attention !

    This hits home as I know the area like the back of my hand.
    The area is riddled with violence and is very poor.
    I hope they can identify these people soon. *sigh*

    Never have been in the area, but know of it.

    A woman's body was found in an abandoned home about 20-25 blocks from there earlier this month.

    I agree Missizzy- seems they got lucky on this one- real lucky, thanks to a very alert and very brave citizen.

    It sounds as if this guy was well known as a rapist in the neighborhood and beyond. Why why why was he roaming free? He's sick!
    Maybe the people in this neighborhood feel so beaten down and lack faith in LE so much that they didn't even bother to report him, or the smell of death (which is pretty unmistakable)?
    Sad.

    I live in Cleve. the thing I can't believe is how many people right around his area have loved ones missing. This seems like some war torn third world country where you could go missing and nobody will ever hear of you again. EVERY missing person should be looked for like Morgan Harrington and Lacey Peterson etc....

    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.....
    He has a good point about LE. They were there on 9/22. So either the remains weren't there or hadn't been there long when they were there. Or they just never noticed the odor.........

    According to that article AS's half bro says that his stepmom owns the home. And that he hasn't been able to get in touch with his stepmom. Neighbors have said that stepmom is in a nursing home. So she might be one possibility for one set of remains. Surely LE is checking on her?

    Autopsy's have been done on all 6, but the coroner isn't releasing the cause of death. An earlier article says that of the two found on the third floor, both were African American, and at least one of those died from violence though they aren't saying what type of violence.

    Fox is reporting that most were strangled.

    I am having a hard time keeping up with all of these reports. Different sources reporting bits and pieces.

    CNN is saying strangled too. All the articles are stressing that the remains could have been there for "weeks, months or years." So I think the cops who were there in Sept. have some explaining to do.

    Wow! Thank God they caught him. I am surprised he didn't put up a fight at all or even bother to run. He didn't even leave the area he was familiar with!
    He's a odd one, i wonder if he's responsible for more murders.
    The main thing is they caught him quick!

    I agree. Something here stinks! I mean that in the literal sense too!

    From what people on the comment sections in the local news, there is a sausage processing shop next door, or something like that. Sounds as if there is a lot of smells going on around the area. I read that a neighbor said that there was a smell a while back or something like that.

    I had something dead stinking around my home in the middle of August a few years ago. It took about a week to find it. It was a dead opossum that fell into a barrell in the neighbors back yard. Stunk up the whole area and was a smell that I would never forget.

    About the sausage shop, I read about that in one of the links. One poster says it stinks, another said yes it smelled, but smelled good. I would think that the neighbors would be familiar with and used to the smell from that. So when they talked about something stinking, I wouldn't think they would be talking about a smell they were used to.
