Former West Allis, Wisconsin police officer Steven Zelich, linked to the deaths of 37-year-old Laura Simonson and 19-year-old Jenny Gamez, may face new charges in Kenosha County, WSN12 reported on August 4.

Although homicide charges have yet to be filed against him, police are allegedly building their case against him. He has been charged with hiding a corpse and is currently held on bail. According to preliminary investigations, both of the women died during allegedly consensual sexual acts with Allis. Allis then hid both of their bodies in suitcases, which were then found by the side of a road in Walworth County.
