Boy, 17, to face murder charges in case of 2 missing teens
VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) — A prosecutor says a teenage boy will be charged with murder in connection with the disappearance of two northwestern Indiana teenagers.
Porter County Prosecutor Gary Germann said Sunday the 17-year-old boy is expected to be charged Monday with two counts of murder.
He tells The (Northwest Indiana) Times the boy’s identity and the details behind the charges won’t be released until then.
Germann spoke after the Porter County Sheriff’s Department announced that it had a suspect in the teens’ disappearance in custody and had located a burned-out car.
The department declined to release any additional details.
Eighteen-year-old Thomas M. Grill Jr. of Cedar Lake and 19-year-old Molley R. Lanham of St. John were reported missing by their families last week. Police say the pair was last seen Feb. 25.
