ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Authorities in Alaska say they are investigating claims by a confessed Anchorage killer that he is responsible for three additional deaths.
A news release says Joshua Wade has agreed to provide information about three additional killings. In exchange, prosecutors will transfer him to a federal prison outside Alaska.
Wade was convicted of killing nurse Mindy Schloss and convicted of evidence tampering in the death of Della Brown.
KTVA-TV reports Wade contacted them several times last winter and told them he killed three others.
Wade says he killed someone when he was 14 and strangled someone else five years later during a botched robbery. He says the third unrevealed killing occurred the night Brown died.
He says there was a man with Brown whom he beat and shot.
