HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) — Police say the suspect in the slayings of seven women whose bodies were found in northwestern Indiana over the weekend is a former Texas resident who now lives in Gary.
Hammond Police Chief John Doughty says Darren Vann will be charged Monday in the slaying of a woman whose body was found Friday at a Motel 6 in Hammond.
Police say Vann provided information that led authorities to the bodies of six other women in abandoned homes in the nearby city of Gary, Indiana.
Those bodies were found Saturday and Sunday.
Doughty says the woman found on Friday was involved in prostitution and had arranged to meet Vann at the motel.
