The Lake County Coroner is still working to identify the bodies of three women linked to a suspected serial killer in Northwest Indiana.

Darren Vann is suspected of killing seven women.

One of them was found at a motel in Hammond, the other six were at abandoned homes in Gary.

Vann has only been charged in two of the murders, so far.

But, he reportedly confessed to police that he killed all of them … including 36-year-old Kristine Williams.

Her family says they knew she had a dangerous lifestyle involving drugs and prostitution, but she didn’t deserve to die that way.

Williams’ father says he learned of her death over the phone.

He says the coroner told him his daughter’s body was mummified, and that she had been dead for at least ten months.

    He’s been doing this for the past twenty years, he knows all of their names. He might not tell the authorities.but he has their names written down somewhere (even if it’s in his mind). Just like he went back to check on the places where he left their bodies, he knows where they all are. The Bible says just as dog returns to his vomit, so shall a fool return to his folly. Proverbs 26:11 How could this person slip through the cracks for so long? Who are his parents? Did he have any children?
