Cleveland police on Monday confirmed the identity of the eighth victim in the Imperial Avenue slayings.
Police notified the family of 49-year-old Janice Webb that she was among the 11 victims discovered last month in the home of Anthony Sowell, who is so far charged with five counts of aggravated murder.
Her family said Webb disappeared in June.
The coroner’s office positively identified three other victims over the weekend: 47-year-old Amelda Hunter, 38-year-old Crystal Dozier and 45-year-old Michelle Mason, all of Cleveland.
Hunter lived in the 3200 block of East 137th Street. Her family reported her missing on Nov. 3, indicating that she was last seen on or about April 18, 2009.
Dozier, of Kinsman Avenue, was not reported as a missing person at the time of the discovery of the victims’ bodies. She was reportedly last seen in October 2007.
Mason lived in the 2900 block of East 121st Street. She was reported missing in Cleveland on Oct. 12, 2008 by her mother, who stated that she last saw her daughter on or about Oct. 4, 2008.
At that time, it was reported to Cleveland police that Mason suffered from bipolar disorder and that she was not taking her prescribed medications.
Checks were made in Cleveland and in Garfield but the extensive investigative effort failed to provide any insight into her location.
Police notified the family of 43-year-old Nancy Cobbs Friday afternoon, telling them that she was among the Imperial Avenue victims.
