CLEVELAND (AP) — Construction of a memorial at the Cleveland
site where the remains of 11 women were found in a serial killer’s home
has been delayed because its funding is short by $250,000.

reports that construction at Anthony Sowell’s (SOH’-wehlz) former property won’t start as planned on
Mother’s Day.
Public
and private funding would be used for the memorial at the site where
Sowell’s house once stood. The Mount Pleasant Ministerial Alliance has
been working to create a memorial garden.
Sowell was found guilty in 2011 and sentenced to death. Many of his victims were drug addicts who were
never reported missing.
Cost
estimates for the project had initially ranged from $175,000 to
$480,000. Proposed designs included a playground, stone walkways and a
reflective pool.
