Bones have been found after a convicted serial killer confessed to another murder while behind bars.
Dellmus Colvin, 61, was interviewed from behind bars last week by criminal profiler Phil Chalmers for his podcast ‘Where The Bodies Are Buried’ and said he killed a woman 15 years ago at a now closed truck stop in Illinois.
Colvin said in the podcast that in 2004 or 2005, he met a woman there, killed her and left her naked corpse behind the building, but kept her clothing as a trophy.
Bones were then found by on Wednesday at the location Colvin revealed in the podcast after police said they used cadaver dogs to recover the evidence.
LaSalle County Sheriff Tom Templeton told the PJ Star that they will begin testing in a few days to see if the bones are from a human.
‘I couldn’t tell,’ Templeton said. ‘They’re not that big of pieces.’
Templeton spoke with the killer on the phone and said the account matched the details given on the podcast.
The identity of the woman still remains unknown as Templeton said that investigators have no missing-persons cases that fit Colvin’s description of the woman he killed, which was that of a prostitute who might not be from the area.
Colvin is serving two life sentences in Ohio for murdering two prostitutes in 2003. He worked as a trucker and later pleaded guilty in the killings of four other women, but, claimed to have slain dozens more.
The search of the site will resume next week, police said.
