Three bound, gagged, shot in Akron area, one arrest made
Police in a community just west of Akron have made an arrest in connection with an investigation into three murders discovered late last week.
Copley Police announce on Saturday the arrest of 58-year-old Elias Gudino on charges of murder and attempted murder.
The body of a Hispanic male was found along Wright Road in Copley Friday morning. The victim had been bound, gagged, and shot.
Akron police Department had discovered the bodies of two other adult males also shot in the head, bound, and gagged in that city not far from the location of the body in Copley.
Police believe that the males had likely been kidnapped from outside the area and brought to Summit County.
Police are still trying to determine the reason for the kidnapping or what activity the victims might have been involved in.
As of Saturday, police said they had not yet positively identified all the victims.
Police believe there could be additional suspects.
