EAST CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A woman who says she very well could have been one of Michael Madison's victims, spoke exclusively to Reporter Jen Picciano over the weekend.  

The suspect's ex-girlfriend told Picciano that he put a gun to her head and threatened her life.   She's also gave Picciano insight on some of his behavior that now make a lot of sense - including a fixation with Anthony Sowell.

This woman says, a whole year after Anthony Sowell was tried and convicted for killing eleven women, Michael Madison would frequently watch YouTube videos of his case and cry - expressing sympathy for the serial killer and disdain for Sowell's female victims.  

According to this woman, who wants to remain anonymous for her privacy and safety, says Madison would look up other rape cases and do the same.

She said she also caught him looking at nude pictures of underage girls on his computer. All alarming activities.

According to East Cleveland Police, Madison hasn't mentioned Sowell during interrogations.   But a man told Reporter Blake Chenault that while they were in jail together, Madison told him he admired the infamous serial killer.
