Rally for Anthony Sowell's Murder Victims Tonight

Posted By on Fri, Oct 29, 2010 at 2:58 PM

One year ago the nation turned its eyes to a home on Imperial Avenue. By the end of the investigation at Anthony Sowell's house, 11 bodies would turn up.

Tonight, there's a rally and vigil in front of Cleveland's house of horrors to remember and honor the victims — the 11 women who died at the hands of the monstrous serial killer.

The Plain Dealer also published a remarkably detailed and sad look back at the case — from the first moments when cops and reporters arrived at what looked like a relatively normal crime scene, to when the full story of Sowell's heinous acts were uncovered. It's well worth your time. The first part is embedded below. The rest can be found here.
