LASALLE – Authorities are investigating a former truck wash and bones found along May Road in Peru, and it may be connected to statements made by an incarcerated serial killer in a Podcast released last week. Phil Chalmers, a Florida profiler who interviewed 61-year-old Dellmus Colvin via phone from an Ohio prison, released an episode on his “Where the Bodies are Buried” podcast last Tuesday. In the interview, Colvin claims in his own words to have met a woman at a truck stop in LaSalle on a rainy night, and said that he drove behind an old truck wash, and left her body there without clothes. He goes on to claim he took the clothing in a garbage bag to Council Bluffs, Iowa. He described the victim as white female with dirty blonde hair. Colvin said it was during a weekday when he left her in a wooded area he described as some distance from the road.  Colvin has been accused of at least 7 murders from 1987-2005.  LaSalle County Sheriff Tom Templeton said the investigation will continue on a later date, and two bones found during the search will be analyzed by the Illinois State Police.  According to Chalmers, Colvin claims to have killed as many as 57 women while he was traveling the country as a truck driver.
