‘Garden of Death’ May Yield 12 Bodies

British police, pulling apart a house where up to five bodies have already been found, fear they may unearth 12 victims of a suspected serial killer, the Sunday Mirror newspaper reported.

Police believed they found remains of two people Saturday at the home of a man already charged with three murders and said there was a “distinct possibility” of further finds.

They uncovered the corpses of three women last week in what the media has branded the “garden of death” at the house in the western English city of Gloucester. They found more remains when they turned their attention to the house itself.

Frederick West, a 52-year-old builder with some 10 children from two marriages, has been charged with murdering his daughter Heather.
