Sex predator pleads guilty to killing 3 women in Oregon

The Associated Press

PORTLAND — A convicted sex predator who confessed in a 911 call in Texas to killing three women in Oregon has changed his pleas to guilty.

The plea change Wednesday followed 64-year-old Jeffrey Cutlip’s confession in July 2012 in Brownsville, Texas.

Cutlip said in the call he wanted to talk about bad things he had done.

Cutlip pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated murder and two counts of murder.

His sentencing is scheduled for December.

He was indicted in the deaths of 44-year-old Marlene Claire Carlson of Portland in 1975, 15-year-old Julie Marie Bennett of Milwaukie in 1977 and 33-year-old Nielen Doll of Spokane in 1993.

Carlson and Doll were strangled. Bennett was drowned.

Cutlip has been classified as a predatory sex offender since 1982 convictions for sodomy and burglary. He left Oregon several times while on parole – once for three years, without telling authorities where he was going, as required under the sex offender registration law. He’s currently on parole for past offenses.
