GARY, Ind. (AP) — Police say an Indiana man has now definitively confessed to killing seven women whose bodies were found over the weekend in northwestern Indiana.
Gary Police Chief Larry McKinley also told a news conference that authorities have enough evidence to charge Darren Vann, 43, with murder in at least three more of the cases involving bodies discovered in abandoned buildings around the city over the weekend. McKinley said those charges were expected to be filed within a few days.
Vann was arrested over the weekend after a missing person’s report led police to a body in a bathtub at a Motel 6 in Hammond. He confessed to that murder and directed police to six more bodies. The first murder charge was filed against him on Monday.
