Bones Found After Serial Killer Confesses To Murder On Podcast
A convicted serial killer has admitted to another murder during an interview on a podcast while behind bars.
Dellmus Colvin, 61, is currently serving two life sentences in Ohio for murdering two prostitutes back in 2003.
The former trucker later pleaded guilty to the killings of four other woman and also claimed to have murdered dozens more, according to the Metro.
Now, Colvin has admitted that he killed a woman 15 years ago at a now closed truck stop in Illinois.
He made the chilling admission on criminal profiler Phil Chalmers' podcast 'Where The Bodies Are Buried'.
He explained how he met a woman, murdered her and then left her naked body behind the building - keeping her clothes as a trophy.
On Wednesday (2 September) police discovered bones at the location Colvin gave away, after using sniffer dogs to recover the evidence.
LaSalle County Sheriff Tom Templeton told the PJ Star that they will begin testing in a few days to see if the bones are from a human. Adding: "I couldn't tell. They're not that big of pieces."

In the 43-minute long podcast which was put together using several phone interviews, Colvin gave a detailed account of how he would kill his victims before driving with them in the cab of his truck until he found a place to dump their bodies.
He explained how he would usually kill in one state, dump the body in another and finally get rid of their clothes in a third.
He also made a joke that the dead corpses were good passengers because they didn't make any complaints about the music or ask for anything.
Adding: "You ain't got to share your goodies with them. 'You want some Wendy's, baby?' Hell no. She don't need nothing."
Colvin refused to talk about any cases that were in death penalty states but when asked which of his still-missing victims would be easiest to locate he immediately answered: LaSalle, Illinois.
Giving more details, he claimed to be doing paperwork in the cab of his truck when a woman knocked on the door. He told her to 'beat it' but she returned a few minutes later.
He went on to add that he entered a nearby store and bought a few log books before returning to his truck and strangling the unknown victim in the sleeper bunk. Then he drove away from the store to an abandoned truck wash.
With a laugh, he said: "It was deserted. No one comes down there. It's dark and it's scary. I pulled all the way in the back. The weeds are so high, and I just remember picking (the body) up on my shoulder and into the woods I go."
