JANESVILLE - Police are widening a search into the past of Clayton Courtney.

Investigators say Courtney confessed last week to the murders of three people. Courtney is being held on charges related to the non-fatal stabbing of his roommate, but he's believed to be the suspect in the death of Britney Cross.

Cross' body was found by Rock River last week. Police are now looking into Courtney's past to see if his alleged confession holds up.
