BESSEMER, Ala. (AP) — Police said a South Carolina man confessed to killing a woman in Alabama 21 years ago and hiding her body in a suitcase.

Police in Bessemer, Alabama told news outlets that South Carolina native Brian Jones traveled back to Alabama last month and admitted to killing 41-year-old Janet Luxford in 2001.

WBRC reported that Bessemer Police Lt. Christian Clemons said Jones told investigators he hit her with a golf club during an argument.

Clemons said Jones led investigators to an area near a creek where bones were found inside a green suitcase.

Police say Luxford was originally from California but had been living in Florida.
