STARLIGHT, IN (WAVE) – The case against a suspected serial killer in southern Indiana took another turn on Wednesday.
Authorities searched a property in Starlight, Indiana where suspected serial killer William Clyde Gibson claims he dumped two bodies.
Property owner Mike Missi said Gibson rented a trailer in Clark County at 9000 St. John's Road for nine months in 1999 and 2000.
Gibson lived in the trailer with his girlfriend at the time Kelly Bailey. "When we moved up there, I guess we lived there maybe two months," said Bailey. "Everything was fine. Then he started staying out late, drinking a lot, last two months he started going into a bad spell.
Sources said detectives have been searching the site, including a wooded area, for five days and that Gibson was at the property on Tuesday.
"They brought him up and he was saying he thinks there are couple bodies here," said Missi.
Police said if they do not find anything behind the trailer they will stop digging on the property, unless Gibson gives them new information.
Gibson is already charged with murdering Karen Hodella, Christine Whitis and Stephanie Kirk.
Since Kirk's body was discovered in a make shift grave in Gibson's backyard on April 27, investigators have been pulled in all different directions. Police efforts were then focused to the Ohio River in Floyd County.
In May, they searched along the riverbank in Clark County in Utica, then days later, it was a wooded area off of Grant Line Road. Their investigation then took them more than 100 miles north, to Bloomington, Indiana, where sources said Gibson led them to another wooded area near the airport.
