Washington serial killer Gary Ridgway says he might be able to locate the bodies of some of his Green River victims who were never found.

Ridgway told KOMO-TV in Seattle the Green River Task Force mostly kept him in a van in 2003 when he directed them to sites where he dumped bodies in the 1980s.  He’d like to revisit every site on foot and says he could have had as many as 80 victims.

King County sheriff’s Sergeant Katie Larson, who was a member of the task force, says Ridgway is a pathological liar who likes notoriety. She says it’s possible he killed more than the 49 women for which he was convicted.  But, investigators are confident they did everything possible to recover all the victims.

Ridgway was sentenced to 48 consecutive life sentences in 2003. (AP)
