Anthony Sowell, the Cleveland serial killer that murdered 11 girls and disposed of a number of the victims from garbage bags and plastic sheets, died Monday after struggling with a terminal disease.
He was previously placed on death row in the Chillicothe Correctional Institution.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported he was transferred to the health club on Jan. 21. The report stated that the exact reason for his death wasn't revealed, however, it wasn't tied to COVID-19.
Sowell was detained in 2011 of raping and strangling 11 girls and keeping their bodies around in his house on Imperial Avenue, in the city's Mount Pleasant area. He had been sentenced to death.
The state prison system informed victims' families of the departure, Fox eight reported.
"I'm glad he's dead. I won't ever ever forgive him" the girl of one of the victims said.
