4 Young Men Missing in My Area

http://www.cnn.com/2017/07/11/us/fou...nia/index.html

This is scary. Four men are missing, aged 18-22. Another young man, reportedly suffering with mental illness and previously arrested for an illegal firearm, is being held on $1M bail. The police are digging up property and sifting the dirt.

We frequent this area.

I hope the young men are found safe, but it doesn't look good.

Re: 4 Young Men Missing in My Area

(((hugs))) I've seen this on the news ... I hope they find the guys, even though its doubtful they are still alive - the families need their sons returned to them.

Re: 4 Young Men Missing in My Area

Baffling. Did they all disappear at separate times? It seems like they either don't or barely know each other.

Re: 4 Young Men Missing in My Area

They knew each other in some way, two disappeared together. No real information has been released. This investigation is very tightly closed.

They found bodies last night.

Re: 4 Young Men Missing in My Area

Rumors, I don't know if they are true because this is a very tight-lipped investigation:

A young man was beaten and suffered severe head trauma by another teen, Billy Riddle, who was out on parole: http://www.philly.com/philly/columni...-20170706.html

The missing boys were witnesses to that beating and the attacker wanted them silenced.

The man who killed the 4 boys just confessed to killing them. He supposedly owed the Billy Riddle drug money and traded the killings in exchange for payment. He lured one of his friends and tortured him and burned his body: http://www.philly.com/philly/news/cr...-20170708.html

Then he used the friend's phone to lure the other 3 boys and killed them.

What a sad and complicated case. It has several young men shook up.

Re: 4 Young Men Missing in My Area

Although the locals and social media connected those three crimes above, the local news is saying they aren't related.

But a 2nd guy was arrested today.
