Just hours after he was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for strangling nine prostitutes in Austria and the Los Angeles area, an infamous author-inmate was found dead in his Austrian prison cell Wednesday, an apparent suicide victim. The body of Jack Unterweger, 43, was found hanging from a curtain rod, according to the Austrian Ministry of Justice. Officials said he apparently had used a cord from his jogging pants to hang himself.

That Jack Unterweger is a murderer is not in question. He admits strangling a prostitute in his native Austria in 1973, explaining that "I envisioned my mother in front of me, and I killed her." The question now, police say, is whether he has slain more, and where. Until this week, investigators thought the former disc jockey may have killed eight other Austrian women--most of them prostitutes and most of them strangled. Now they say he may have killed women in Los Angeles as well.
