Convicted rapist arrested for rape and then 6 bodies found in his house

October 31, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Another violent criminal turned back on the street has allegedly committed a horrific crime. Anthony Sowell, a 50-year-old convicted rapist is suspected in the killings of six people whose bodies were found this week in and around a house in Cleveland, Ohio. Sowell was arrested while walking down the street without incident. The case began unfolding weeks ago, when a woman accused Sowell of rape and felonious assault, according to police.

Police said the department’s sex crime unit was serving a sexual assault warrant for Sowell at the home Thursday night when they discovered 2 bodies upstairs and later up to 4 more decomposing bodies buried in the basement and garden. Sowell is a registered sex offender and reportedly spent 15 years in prison for rape before being released in 2005.
