NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - The New Albany Police Department is making changes as part of its investigation into the murders of three women in southern Indiana.

Major Keith Whitlow says they are in the process of evaluating new evidence found 800 miles away connected to William Cylde Gibson. Whitlow says they can't give a lot of details about this new evidence. It is not being released where they found it or even what it is. 

Gibson has been charged with killing Christine Whitis in his home on April 19 and Karen Hodella, whose body was discovered in Clarksville near the Ohio River in January 2003. He is also a suspect in the death of Stephanie Kirk. Kirk's body was found buried in Gibson's backyard on April 27.
