CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -  The Cuyahoga County Coroner's Office identified the tenth victim of the Imperial Avenue investigation Wednesday evening.

She is 25 year old Leshanda Long.

Ms. Long was not reported as a missing person yet family members say they had not seen her since August of 2008.

Authorities say Ms. Long's skeletal remains were identified through DNA and the process was complicated by the fact that only her skull was available.

So far, eleven bodies were found at 50-year-old convicted sex offender Anthony Sowell's home. All are African-American women - most had been strangled.
