    Throughout Saturday night into early Sunday morning, the bodies were recovered in the 2200 block of Massachusetts, 400 block of E. 43rd Avenue and 1800 block of E. 19th Avenue in Gary.

    Lake County Indiana Coroner is now conducting autopsies on all of the bodies...

    Most disturbing is the possibility of even more bodies being recovered in the coming days, as the suspect begins to talk with investigators.

    Police in Northwest Indiana today are investigating a possible serial killer, sources say...

    As news of the discoveries gets out, officials in Lake County tell WGN they are being overrun with calls from family members of missing persons asking if those found so far are their loved ones.

    Prostitute Killer? Gary Man Confesses Murder of 4 Women

    A Gary, Indiana man is in custody after police discovered a woman’s body at a Motel 6 in Hammond on Friday. The possible serial killer has confessed to the murder and also led police to three additional women’s bodies, all in abandoned homes, on Saturday and early Sunday. As the suspect has not yet been charged his identity has not been released.

    After the 43-year-old man was arrested at his home he confessed to the murder at the Hammond, Indiana Motel 6, and begin to confess to multiple additional murders, leading police to the location of three other bodies. At least one was decomposed, according to Gary Police Cpl. Gabrielle King. There is the possibility of even more bodies being recovered as the suspect is interviewed further by investigators.

    This mystery began to unfold at a Motel 6 off I-80 in Hammond where the body of 19-year-old Afrika Hardy was found Friday night. The cause of death was strangulation.

    Sources say Hardy may have met her killer on the website backpage.com, perhaps as an escort.

    Authorities say 35-year-old Anith Jones of Merrillville is one of the women allegedly killed by a man now being held in connection with several killings in northwest Indiana.

    "Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. said in two Facebook posts Sunday afternoon that the man, who he called a serial killer, has “admitted to a couple of homicides in Hammond,” some of which date back 20 years. He also said in his posts that the man is a convicted sex offender."

    Afrikka Hardy was 4 months pregnant, according to her mother, Lori Townsend. Hardy was found strangled in a Hammond motel. Her family lives in the Denver area.

    Not sure who these "sources" are (so take with a grain of salt), but interesting nonetheless... (link:http://wgntv.com/2014/10/19/3-bodies...es-in-gary-in/)

    Sources also tell WGN the man may have wanted to finally be caught, based on what police found at what could be the final stop for a serial killer.

    Note: Afrikka spells her name with two Ks, I haven't seen MSM get it right yet.

    ETA: I stand corrected, the CLTV article okiegranny linked prints her name correctly. I hadn't seen that one when I made my post. So she was pregnant...

    From your link
    "Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. called the person of interest a “serial killer” in a Facebook post Sunday afternoon and said he has “admitted to a couple of homicides in Hammond,” some of which date back two decades. He also said in his posts that the man is a convicted sex offender."

    It really bugs me that this man was a sex offender and they still did not keep an eye on him. What a fail IMO. They cant be so busy in Gary Indiana as to not be able to have some type of GOOD watch dogs on these sex offenders.....this just happens way too much IMO. (Sex offenders committing other crimes because they are not being watched well enough).

    Actually, I meant to type homes and not home. Thank you for catching that!
