CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

East Cleveland's suspected serial killer was in court on Wednesday morning.

Michael Madison pleaded not guilty to the deaths of Shetisha Sheeley, Angela H. Deskins and Shirellda Terry. The 14-count indictment also includes kidnapping, gross abuse of a corpse, rape and having weapons under disability.

The bodies were found near Madison's apartment in East Cleveland. Terry's body was inside Madison's garage, and the bodies of Sheeley and Deskins were discovered two doors down.

Reporter Scott Taylor obtained exclusive photos of what was found inside Madison's car, which was found inside his garage along with Terry's body. Police believe he used his Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme found in his garage to grab his victims.

"The victims body was found on the left side of the vehicle," said Det. Scott Gardner.

East Cleveland Police Detective Scott Gardner says Michael Madison, during his 3 day interrogation, was articulate, intelligent and even polite but he rambled.

They also think he might have had help.

"We are getting continued tips that Madison and perhaps somebody else would abduct girls in this vehicle," said said Det. Gardner. 

Inside the trunk, a brand new shovel and black plastic bags all laid out, very neat. Police believe the car was used to transport his three murder victims.

At his arraignment Madison pled not guilty to 14 charges including murder, rape and kidnapping. 

He remains held on a $6M bond and is due back in court on August 6.

if you have seen Michael Madison driving his Oldsmobile or a Ford Escape please call the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI.
