FILE - This Monday, Oct. 20, 2014 file photo shows an overgrown abandoned home at 413 E. 43rd. Ave. in Gary, Ind., where police found one of six women's bodies. Investigators are using the cellphone records of Darren Vann, an Indiana man already charged in the slayings of two women, to pinpoint his movements after he told police he liked to check on the status of bodies he'd previously stashed after a fresh kill, authorities said. Indiana police say Vann, a convicted sex offender, has confessed to killing 19-year-old Afrikka Hardy and six women whose bodies were found over the weekend in abandoned houses in Gary. He has been charged with murder in the deaths of Hardy and 35-year-old Anith Jones, whose body was found Saturday in Gary. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green, File)
