Convicted Rapist Now Charged With Murder As More Bodies Found

November 3, 2009

Ohio (ChattahBox) – The convicted rapist who was arrested this week for an attack has been charged with homicide, after police began pulling more bodies from his home.

Initially, six bodies were found. Police have now added four to the list that were pulled from the backyard of Anthony Sowell, plus a skull.

Sowell has been convicted in the past of rape, and was recently brought up on charges of rape, felonious assault and kidnapping. Police have now added five counts of murder, with more to follow.

Cadaver dogs had been unable to sniff out the bodies in the yard, but police found them when digging through dirt for evidence. They are continuing their search.

“We will do everything to confirm there is nothing else there,” Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGrath said in a statement.

Sowell will be arraigned on Monday.
