Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The FBI, Cleveland Police Department and Cuyahoga County coroner wrapped up their search Wednesday evening, at the home of the alleged Cleveland Strangler. 
Investigators removed several items that will be examined for investigative value and right now, there's no plans to return to the home or yard.
The very meticulous search kicked around 8AM and is focusing on two specific spots - underneath an outside set of steps and inside the house. The center of the search remains inside where about eight bags of material were confiscated.

Detectives are looking for additional evidence in connection with the discovery of eleven bodies which were found in and around the Imperial Avenue residence between October 29th and November 3rd. All but one victim has been identified. 

Officials spent time inside the house looking with bomb squad radar inside the walls. They also drilled holes and inserted a pin-hole camera to further investigate if the need arises. 

50-year-old Sowell is being held at the Justice Center on a $6M bond. He's charged with aggravated murder, rape, felonious assault and kidnapping.
Sowell could land on death row if convicted of the charges filed against him.
