CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Police in Marion are still working to identify the woman suspected serial killer Shawn Grate claims was his first victim.

Grate told police his first murder took place in 2005 or 2006.

He also told investigators the victim was a magazine salesperson and he was upset because his mother never received her order.

Grate says he lured her into his car, killed her and dumping her body northeast of Marion on Victory Road.

The victim was found in 2007 later by a man looking for cans in the woods.

Investigators released new sketches of the woman hoping someone will come forward to identify the woman.
