Dozens of volunteers search parts of East Cleveland where murder victims were found

EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio - A couple of dozen volunteers turned out Wednesday afternoon to search the area of East Cleveland where the bodies of three women were recently found.

Michael Madison is charged with kidnapping and killing the women. Their bodies were found in the Shaw and Hayden avenues area of the city. 

Among the volunteer searchers was Michael White. He does not know any of the three women, but he is the father of three. White said he took the day off from his housekeeping job to help search.

"I have a daughter myself. I feel that could have been mine," White said.

Monique Clemons helped search for another reason. She knew one of the victims, 28-year-old Shetisha Sheeley, personally.

"We're so close with the family," Clemons said.

Madison remains locked up in the Cuyahoga County Jail on $6 million bond.

East Cleveland Mayor Gary Norton said that police are following every lead that comes into the police department.
