Residents have come together in Cleveland to thank the coroner's office for quickly identifying women whose remains were found at the home of a suspected serial killer.

The gathering Monday night outside Anthony Sowell's house was more of a rally than the somber vigils of recent days.

Community leaders told the crowd that Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County Coroner Frank Miller and his team have brought closure to families of missing women.

Ten of the 11 bodies discovered at the home have been identified. Spokesman Powell Caesar was on hand Monday on behalf of the coroner's office and said it's still seeking DNA from anyone with a missing family member to identify the last woman.

Sowell is jailed on five preliminary charges of aggravated murder.
