WEST ALLIS, WI (WTAQ) - Newly released recordings raise questions about a prior case involving Steven Zelich.
He's the former West Allis police officer suspected of killing two women and hiding their bodies in suitcases.
Tuesday, West Allis Police released audio from an internal investigation in 2001, when a woman ran from an apartment wearing just her underwear. The two told conflicting stories of what happened.
Officers found a condom in Zelich's kitchen garbage can -- but he claimed it wasn't his, and he was not sure how it got there. No criminal charges were ever filed in the incident.
Zelich later agreed to resign from the West Allis police force after evidence showed that he stalked and harassed at least a half-dozen other women.
The 52-year-old Zelich recently pleaded not guilty to Walworth County charges of hiding a corpse.
He allegedly killed Laura Simonson in Rochester Minnesota and Jenny Gamez in Kenosha County, before dumping their bodies in suitcases. They were found June 5th along a rural road near Lake Geneva.
Homicide charges are still pending in the places where the women were found dead.
