"The Madman of Marshall Street"
PHILADELPHIA -- A mentally retarded man charged as an accomplice in the 'house of horrors' sex slayings was released on bail Thursday after he agreed to cooperate with police and a judge ruled he was not a public threat.
Authorities said Cyril Brown, 31, was cooperating in the case against Gary Heidnik, who is charged with murdering two women and kidnapping and repeatedly raping four others in the basement of his north Philadelphia row house. Brown has 'talked about one other homicide' and may lead police to the burial site of the possible third murder victim, said defense attorney Norris Gelman.
