Anthony Sowell - Repeat Sex Offender - Hid his crimes in the basement

Ohio police charged a convicted sexual predator with 5 counts aggravated murder hours after four more bodies were taken from his backyard and a skull removed from the man's basement.
Anthony Sowell, 50, was also charged Tuesday with rape, felonious assault and kidnapping, Cleveland police spokesman Lt. Thomas Stacho said.

The gruesome new discovery comes after 6 bodies were found last week in the Sowell's house.

He will be arraigned Wednesday.

Cadaver dogs unsuccessfully searched Sowell's backyard throughout the day, but found the remains while using a backhoe to dig up portions of the yard, Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGrath said Tuesday night.

He couldn't say specifically where in the backyard the bodies were found or if any of them were decapitated, but said the skull was found wrapped in a paper bag in a bucket in Sowell's basement.

McGrath said they hope the corner’s office will be able to identify the sex of the bodies by Wednesday morning.
