Authorities Identify Final Two Victims In East Cleveland
All three women whose bodies were found wrapped in trash bags in northeast Ohio have been identified.
Family and authorities said Tuesday the last two victims are 18-year-old Shirellda Helen Terry and 28-year-old Shetisha Sheeley. The first known victim was identified by police on Monday as 38-year-old Angela Deskins.
Thirty-five-year-old suspect Michael Madison is in custody facing preliminary charges of aggravated murder and kidnapping in the slayings. He is a registered sex offender who served four years in prison beginning in 2002.
East Cleveland police responding to a call about a foul order on Friday discovered a body in a garage. Within hours they identified Madison as a suspect and went to his mother’s house where he was arrested after a brief standoff.
They found the additional bodies Saturday after their questioning of Madison led them to renew their search.
