A person found dead at suspected serial killer Anthony Sowell’s home has been identified as Telacia Fortson, police sources said.
Fortson, 31, lived in East Cleveland. She was last seen in June, according to a missing person’s report.
Sowell remains in jail facing charges of aggravated murder. Police have found 11 bodies at his home at Imperial Avenue.
Crews are expected to soon begin searching the house again for more bodies.
Authorities said Wednesday that all 11 victims were black women; eight of them had been strangled.
Fortson is the second person identified. Tonia Carmichael was identified Wednesday. Coroner’s staff continue working to determine the identities of the other dead women.
Fortson’s mother called East Cleveland police Saturday after she read about the bodies as Sowell’s home. She told police she last saw her daughter in June. She told police her daughter used crack cocaine and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a blue shirt.
