EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio coroner says three bodies found wrapped in plastic bags in a suburban Cleveland neighborhood are female.

Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County medical examiner Dr. Thomas P. Gilson said Sunday that the bodies found in East Cleveland are in advanced stages of decomposition. He says it will take several days to identify the women and determine how they died.

One body was found Friday, and two others were found Saturday. A registered sex offender who authorities say is suspected in their deaths is in custody but hasn't been charged.

Police Chief Ralph Spotts told volunteers combing through vacant houses and high weeds in the neighborhood that they should be prepared to find one or two more bodies. He declined to elaborate.
