Police in Virginia say a traveling carnival worker has confessed to multiple murders.
According to WJHL, 23-year-old James Wright says he dumped the bodies of three female victims from separate homicides in the North Fork Holston River near Mendota in Washington County. The women had been reported missing earlier this year.
According to court records, Wright told investigators that he had met each of the victims through his position with a carnival. Wright claims that each of the killings were accidents.
He is expected to face multiple criminal charges including three counts each of capital murder. Police are investigating if Wright is connected to any other missing persons cases.
