Police in Detroit are currently searching 1,000 vacant homes for potential victims of a serial killer who targets prostitutes by luring them into empty buildings after they found the decomposed bodies of three women.

The three women have been found in separate vacant houses on Detroit's east side since March.

Body - Woman - Wednesday - Home - Police

The latest decomposed body - a black woman - was found on Wednesday in a vacant home and police are still working to identify her.

The first victim, 52-year-old Nancy Harrison, was found on March 19, while the second victim, 53-year-old Trevesene Ellis, was discovered on May 24.

Police - Chief - James - Craig - Women

Police Chief James Craig said he suspects at least two of the women worked in the sex trade and believes the women could have been lured into derelict houses, raped and killed.

'It appears we may have a serial killer,' Craig said.

Murderer - Rapist - Sex - Workers - Houses

'We believe this is a serial murderer and rapist, and we want to alert all sex workers, particularly those who work inside vacant houses, to beware.'

Authorities began inspecting hundreds of vacant homes on Friday for more victims.
