Ex-cop in suitcases bodies case stalked at least six women

July 09, 2014 11:32 p.m. | The former West Allis police officer who police say killed two women and hid their bodies in suitcases was accused of stalking and harassment by at least half a dozen women before he was forced to resign in August 2001, according to personnel records released Wednesday.
