CLEVELAND -- A source involved in the investigation of Elias Acevedo Sr. tells WKYC that three of the women accusing him of rape are members of his family.

The same source confirms that just this week a fourth victim has also come forward.

WKYC has also learned that paternity tests show that Acevedo fathered a child with one of his family members.

A grand jury has charged Acevedo in a nearly 300-count indictment on charges of murder, rape and kidnapping.

Acevedo is being held on a $5 million bond in the 1994 murder of Pamela Pemberton and the 1995 murder of Christina Adkins.

A house where Acevedo used to live in on Vega Avenue at the time of the murders has been searched by police more than once.

While the house was undergoing renovations last week, workers found women's underwear in the rafters , leading them to suspect other victims may be out there.
