SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) - A grisly discovery in Cleveland has Ohio's attorney general talking about the tragedy.
Attorney General Mike Dewine was in Springfield Monday for a scheduled appearance.
His office is closely watching the investigation surrounding the deaths of three East Cleveland women whose bodies were found wrapped in trash bags.
"What is scary is we don't know how many more bodies there are, this could be much much much worse," said Dewine.
Dewine says his office is assisting in the investigation.
"Our agents have been involved this weekend working on this investigation in East Cleveland. We were called in on Friday to process the crime scene."
Authorities say Michael Madison is a registered sex offender.
It is Champaign County Sheriff Deputy Aurora Hopkins' job to keep tabs on nearly 120 sex offenders in the county to make sure cases like the one in Cleveland don't happen here.
"We monitor them, making sure they that they come in at their specific times doing house checks when necessary," said Deputy Hopkins.
She says that seems to do the trick in Champaign County. She says the sex offenders are following the rules for the most part.
Dewine says the state is taking investigations a step further.
"We have created a separate unit to go after sex offenders and we really are a protecting children unit," he said.
He says this multimillion dollar unit started last year.
The suspect in the East Cleveland case is facing formal charges.
Michael Madison, 35, is now charged with aggravated murder.
The local NBC station is reporting Madison has already admitted killing one of the women.
The medical examiner has also identified one of the victims and is working to identify the others.
Investigators do not believe there are other victims.
The man suspected in the RTA bus hub attack that led to another man's death is expected to be released from the Montgomery County Jail pending further investigation.
A 29-year-old Farmersville man is dead after he was attacked Friday at the downtown RTA bus hub.
Neighbors reported heavy smoke coming from the home in the 300 block of Lawncrest Avenue in Drexel around 11 a.m.
The city of West Carrollton has a new fire chief.
An accident slowed traffic near the I-75/US 35 interchange in downtown Dayton.
