Colorado teen Austin Reed Sigg, 17, who was arrested after the murder and dismemberment of Jessica Ridgeway, 10, may be behind two other child abduction cases, according to a new report.

Two weeks after 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway‘s body was found in an open field close to her Denver-area home, Colorado police arrested 17-year-old Austin Reed Sigg in connection with her murder. He is now thought to be responsible for two unsolved child abduction cases as well.

Austin resembles a sketch that was drawn up in connection with the September incidents, police spokesman Sgt. Mark Nazaryk said. While the sketch and Austin’s mugshot are not an exact match, he will be questioned on these cases.

The September child enticement cases involved an unidentified man who tried to lure two boys about the same age as Jessica into a car.

According to CBS4, police made the arrest on Oct. 23 after Austin’s mom called authorities saying her son had confessed to the murder.

“I made the phone call, and he turned himself in. That’s all I have to say,” the teen’s mom told the Associated Press.

When police arrived at the home, he allegedly told authorities that some of the human remains were in a crawl space under the home.

Police also say they will file charges against the teen in connection with a May 28 abduction attempt of a 22-year-old jogger. The woman told police that she fought off a stranger who grabbed her from behind and put a rag that smelled of chemicals over her mouth. Police have not identified the connection between the two cases.

Austin is being held at a juvenile detention facility in Lakewood, Colo., and is expected to be charged with two counts of murder in the first degree and kidnapping in the second degree.

What a tragic ending to a heart-breaking case. We hope Jessica’s family and their community find peace.

They need to check out this scum bag for any local incidents whereby he may very well
have been involved. His eyes look evil on his mug shot.
