Remains of 10th person ID'd from Cleveland house

CLEVELAND (AP) - Authorities in Cleveland have identified a 10th woman whose remains were discovered at the home of an accused serial killer.

Police Lt. Thomas Stacho says 25-year-old Leshanda Long had not been seen since August 2008 but was not reported as a missing person. She had been reported missing twice when she was in her teens.

Stacho says the coroner's office identified Long through DNA. He says the task was complicated by the fact that only her skull was found at Anthony Sowell's house.

Remains of 11 people turned up there. Only one is still unidentified.

Sowell has been charged with five counts of aggravated murder.

Police on Wednesday took the search for more bodies to the house next door to Sowell's and carried out bags of evidence.
