ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A woman who grew up in Minnesota is among the victims in a suspected serial killing in northwestern Indiana.

Twenty-eight-year-old Teaira Batey was born in Chicago and moved to St. Paul when she was about 4, then moved to Gary, Indiana, in 2004.

Her longtime boyfriend, Marvin Clinton, says the two were working on wedding plans when she went missing last January. The couple had a 2-year-old son.

Batey also had struggles. She was bipolar and had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and depression.

Batey’s mother, Gloria Cullom, described her daughter as trusting and vulnerable. Cullom says Batey also had two daughters, ages 8 and 7, who were taken from her by the state and put up for adoption.

Police say an Indiana man has confessed to killing seven women whose bodies were found over the weekend.
