WEST ALLIS, Wis. -- A former police officer charged in the deaths of two women -- one from the Twin Cities -- whose bodies were stuffed into suitcases and left on a rural Wisconsin highway met his victims online, according to police and a criminal complaint.
Steven Zelich, 52, a security officer, was charged Thursday with two counts of hiding a corpse.
He was arrested Wednesday, when detectives wearing hazmat suits removed large bags of evidence and a refrigerator from his apartment in West Allis, a Milwaukee suburb.
Highway workers discovered two suitcases containing female remains June 5 in the Town of Geneva, about 50 miles southwest of Milwaukee.
Police identified one woman as Laura Simonson, 37, of Farmington.
Authorities have not released the identity of the second woman. Simonson was found naked with a rope around her neck and a ball gag strapped in her mouth with a collar, according to the criminal complaint filed in Walworth County, Wis.

He was just the ‘bag man’.
Love these headline writers. Cop charged with illegal “stuffing.”
Your Carrion Luggage is ready for pick-up.................
Sounds like a consensual sex thing gone bad - could happen to anybody. Hey, what people do in the privacy of their own homes is there own business.
(Now - how to explain the body parts in the suitcase bit? Recycling?)
Suspect arrested and charged in “suitcase bodies” found on roadside. Former West Allis cop.
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
But NOT CHARGED with 'creating corpses'?......................
Police work is my life. I enjoy long walks on the beach. And ball-gags on you.
Good thing did not try to “carry on” to an airliner
Would have cost a fortune..........
“I’d invite you back to my place
“It’s only mine because it holds my suitcase...”
To help identify the second victim, I think the police used the local elementary school children to make a clay face, and then stuck a wig on it, judging from the photo at the link. Either that, or the perp had a thing for extraterrestrials.
He felt threatened. No crime.
Well, at least he didn’t high-tail it to France, like Arlen Specter’s buddy, Ira Einhorn.
happened at a crappy microtel motel.
Ya come up with a good idea, and everybody tries to copy it...
With this joker, you're gong to need id to buy luggage shortly. Unless you're an illegal alien, of course.
So many of these guys out there I’m surprised people answer these ads.
The taxi driver noticed the cries for help from the luggage...
Wisconsin in general. Don’t forget Ed Gein.
“Stop resisting! Stop resisting!”
“Dont forget Ed Gein.”
Wasn’t he the lampshade maker? I used to live in Milwaukee, and people didn’t like to talk about Eddie! Quite a story! Pretty creepy movie about him too.
He used skulls as bowls.
Probably got them from the grave yard, being a bit of an incestuous necrophiliac, when he dug up his mother.
Probably killed his (twin?) brother, too, and set a forest fire to cover his misdeeds.
Quite a piece of work. I think he was diagnosed as schizoid when finally locked up.
His grave marker was stolen one too many times so the local LEOs keep it locked up in evidence storage.
“Quite a piece of work.”
