The man suspected of murdering seven women in Indiana has indicated to police that his crime spree dates back two decades, authorities said at a press conference today.

Suspect Darren Deon Vann, 43, helped authorities locate the bodies of six victims in Gary, Indiana, after he was arrested in the murder of 19-year-old Afrika Hardy, whose body was found at a Motel 6 in Hammond, ABC News reports.

"The investigation could lead to more victims," Doughty said. He added that the probe "could go back 20 years" based on Vann's statements to police.

Records show Vann is listed as a registered sex offender in Texas, but Hammond authorities would not confirm that information. They said the suspect solicited women on Backpage.com.

Charges are imminent.

A bit sarcastic, but when Democrats run a once thriving beautiful City like Gary, Indiana into the ground just like they did Detroit that happens. If they had more Police Officers, Code Officers, & City workers them empty vacant houses still standing could have been checked & torn down decades ago. My nephews Dad worked in Gary as a Paramedic for 23 years, went to work one day, & received his pink slip. City had no money left.

Gary has been a cesspool for over 100 years. You are probably way to young to remember the GI boys (Gary Indiana boys) one of the largest most fierce gangs in the mid west. Last time Gary was beautiful was when Chester A. Arthur was President.
