Three Bodies Found In Plastic Bags At Vacant Home

Police say they'll expand the search for bodies Sunday in East Cleveland, Ohio, after three bodies were found and a suspect arrested.
    
Officials say the 35-year-old suspect, who has not yet been charged, appears to have a fascination with convicted serial killer Anthony Sowell, who killed 11 women and hid their remains around his Cleveland home.
    
East Cleveland Mayor Gary Norton said the 35-year-old suspect is a registered sex offender and has served prison time.

Norton said that in police interviews, the suspect led them to believe he might have been influenced by Anthony Sowell.
    
A woman's body was found Friday in a garage and two other bodies were found Saturday - one in a backyard and the other in the basement of a vacant house.
