DETROIT–A man who Detroit police call a “person of interest” in the deaths of three women remains in custody.
A spokeswoman for the Wayne County prosecutor said Saturday, June 8 that the case remains under investigation and no charges have been filed.
Police say the homeless man was taken into custody Friday night, two days after the body of a woman was found in a vacant house on Detroit’s east side. The bodies of the other two women were discovered in separate empty dwellings earlier this year. Investigators believe the deaths are related.
