EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — East Cleveland Police Chief Ralph Spotts has publicly identified the suspect in the deaths of three women found wrapped in trash bags, and officers and volunteers have ended hours of searching without finding more bodies.

Spotts says Sunday that 35-year-old registered sex offender Michael Madison is in custody and expected to be formally charged on Monday.

Sunday’s search included scouring about 40 abandoned houses and other areas, but turned up no more bodies in the neighborhood where three were found separately on Friday and Saturday.

A medical examiner says the bodies were in advanced stages of decomposition, and it will take days to identify the women and determine how they died.

Police did not plan to continue searching Monday.
