Cops Find Up To 6 bodies At Home; Homeowner Arrested

LEVELAND (AP) -- Police in Cleveland have arrested a convicted rapist after they found as many as six bodies at his house.

Police spokesman Lt. Thomas Stacho says 50-year-old Anthony Sowell was arrested about noon Saturday in his inner-city neighborhood in Cleveland. He says charges are pending.

Stacho says officers have found three bodies and believe they have discovered three more but are awaiting confirmation from the coroner.

The first two bodies were found Thursday night when police went to Sowell's home to arrest him on charges of felonious assault and rape. Police say he had spent 15 years in prison for a 1989 rape.

    Well, this is what happens when they let a rapist go free. Once again innocent victims fall prey to another convicted rapist who was released back out amongst society. We are not safe anywhere.

    Man, the smell must have been raucious. Talk about invasion of the body snatchers. What a weirdo! That is exactly why they don't need to let all the baby rapists and murderers out of prison. Proves they will do it again. Can not take a risk like that!!!
