(GARY, Ind.) — The man suspected of murdering seven women in Indiana told police his crime spree dates back two decades, authorities said at a press conference Monday.

Suspect Darren Deon Vann, 43, helped authorities locate the bodies of six victims in Gary, Indiana, after he was arrested in the murder of 19-year-old Afrika Hardy, whose body was found at a Motel 6 in Hammond.

“He’s been giving us descriptions, cooperating and accompanying us to locations,” police said.

“We don’t have a specific reason why he does this,” a spokesman said.

Police said there could be more victims, based on Vann’s statements.

Vann told police he “messed up” by committing a crime in Hammond.

He is cooperating because “he was looking for a type of deal with prosecution,” police said.
