The female body found last week in the South River is that of missing 15 year old Danielle Locklear, who had been missing since March 11, 2014 in Hope Mills, North Carolina. According to the police, Danielle Locklear’s ex-boyfriend, Je’Michael Malloy, has confessed to killing the teen and dumping her body in the South River. 17 year old Je’Michael Malloy has been charged with second-degree murder. According to Sheriff Earl Butler and Chief Joel Acciardo, Malloy and Locklear got into an argument on March 11 that turned violent and Malloy choked Locklear to death and stuffed a sock in her mouth.
Investigators said Malloy and Locklear got into an argument on March 11, which is the night she was last seen leaving her grandfather’s home in the Fox Meadow subdivision. They said the conversation turned violent and Malloy choked Locklear to death and stuffed a sock in her mouth.
Malloy and a friend, 18-year-old Dominic Lock, then allegedly tossed her body over a bridge on the Cumberland/Sampson County line. Locklear’s remains were found with cinder blocks with tied to her body.
Right now, the body, which was found April 3 by an off-duty deputy, has not been positively identified. However, based on conversations and Malloy’s confession, police said they know it’s her.

Sheriff Earl “Moose” Butler and Chief Joel Acciardo called an emergency press conference to announce Je’Michael Malloy’s arrest as well as confirm that a body recovered April 3 from the South River was Locklear’s.
Acciardo said Malloy, 17, killed the 15-year-old South View High School student the night of March 11. Earlier that night she left home after telling her grandfather she was walking to a friend’s house about a block away. That was the last time her family saw her.
Deputies arrested Malloy Tuesday evening. A second suspect, Dominic Lock, 18, was also arrested and charged with conspiracy in Locklear’s death.
Acciardo said the night of March 11 Locklear actually walked to meet Malloy just outside her neighborhood. He said investigators learned that Locklear and Malloy got into an argument that night. Malloy told investigators the argument turned violent and he choked Locklear to death and stuffed a sock in her mouth.
He said he and Lock then tied cinder blocks to her body and tossed her into the South River just south of Autryville. Malloy lives nearby on Highway 210. Law enforcement officers searched his home on Friday. They also searched Lock’s home near Deep Creek Road in Fayetteville on Friday.

Shelter for Families on the grounds of the old D.C. General Hospital in Southeast. Relisha is believed to be in the company of Kahlil Tatum, who works as a janitor at the shelter. According to the Relisha’s mother’s fiance, Antonio Wheeler, the mom gave permission to Khalil Tatum, a janitor at the shelter, to take her daughter. Relisha had been missing since late February, but here disappearance was only brought to the attention of police on Wednesday when officials with D.C. Public Schools realized she hadn’t been showing up for class. Better late than never, I guess. Relisha is described as a black female, standing 4 feet tall and weighing between 70 and 80 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes, and a medium complexion.
Police were searching a homeless shelter next to a Washington, D.C., jail Thursday after missing 8-year-old Relisha Rudd’s mother was taken away.
The mother’s fiance said the woman gave permission to Khalil Tatum, a janitor at the shelter, to take her daughter.
“She said she is at Mr. Tatum’s house she’s good,” said Antonio Wheeler, fiance. “I seen Mr. Tatum today and he said he would bring my daughter back.”
Wheeler said he asked Tatum again later.
“I asked him, he said, ‘She is my house… would bring her back when I get off work today,’” Wheeler said.
That never happened, Wheeler said.
Authorities released surveillance footage of Tatum and Relisha taken on Feb. 26 at the Holiday Inn Express located at 1917 Bladensburg Road in Northeast D.C.
The search for Kahlil Tatum led to the Red Roof Inn in Oxon Hill. Upon further room to room searches at the hotel, the body of 51 year old Andrea Denise Tatum, the wife of Kahlil Malik Tatum, was found dead. An arrest warrant has been issued for Kahil Tatum for the murder of his wife. The police believe Relisha Rudd is traveling with Kahlil Tatum, who may be armed and dangerous, either on foot or in a different vehicle.
Since Relisha Rudd has disappeared and the events that followed, according to Shamika Young, the mother of missing Relisha, DC Child and Family Services have taken custody of her other children three children, ages 7, 5 and 4.

UPDATE II: Search for missing Relisha Rudd intensifies to area of area of Kenilworth Park. … Kahlil Malik Tatum May Have Killed Relisha Rudd.
“We’re not making any assumptions, but I think it’d be prudent for us at this time to make sure we’ve searched – and this is a very large area – searched this area very well,” said D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier. “We cannot ignore the possibility that he may have killed her.”
The search of the aquatic gardens area of Kenilworth Park was prompted by evidence the man, identified as Kahlil Malik Tatum, 51, spent time there after the last credible sighting of Relisha Tenau Rudd, 8, on March 1.
“On March 2, we know that Mr. Tatum purchased, among other items, a carton of black, 42 gallon, self-tie contractor trash bags within the District of Columbia,” Lanier said at a news conference near the search area. “Not long after that purchase, Mr. Tatum was in the area of the aquatic gardens for a period of time.”
D.C. police spokesman Hugh Carew said dive teams were searching the Anacostia River in the 700-acre park in Northeast Washington, DC.
The search for missing 8-year-old girl Relisha Rudd resumed Saturday, with dive teams continuing to sift through the waters of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens for possible remains.
The search for Relisha, last seen alive on March 1, enters day three at the heavily wooded park in Northeast Washington.
It began with a foot search Thursday, after authorities discovered Kahlil Malik Tatum, the man suspected of abducting Relisha, spent more than two hours in that area shortly after purchasing a number of 42-gallon contractor style garbage bags, a shovel and lime on March 2.
Police ask anyone with information on Relisha’s whereabouts to call the Metropolitan Police Department at 202-727-9099, the Youth Investigations Division at 202-576-6768, or 911.

14 Year Old Michaela Bruce Missing Since 2/25/14 in Springfield, OH … Abducted by Mark Edwards for Second Time, Felony Arrest Warrant Issued
14 year old Michaela Bruce has been missing since Tuesday, February 25, 2014 in Springfield, Ohio. According to reports, Michaela Bruce was abducted by 44 year old Mark Edwards for the second time since September 2013. Authorities say Edwards is known to be a survivalist, aka bum, hobo. With his pending trial coming up in March 2014 for the abduction and six counts of unlawful sex with a minor from the September incident where the two ran away, this most likely prompted his incident. The Sheriff’s office believes that Michaela Bruce, and the public could be at risk if the suspect, Mark Edwards, attempts to do something desperate to escape capture. With this being the second abduction of the 14 year old girl, when captured it is not going to end well for this suspect.
She likened her daughter’s relationship with Edwards to being in a “cult.”
“It’s like her little brain has been drilled over and over and over that he loves her. I trusted him. His daughter was my daughter’s best friend. His wife was my friend,” Tammy Bruce said.

UPDATE I: Police receive numerous tips on the two and spotted rental car they were in but cut off pursuit.
Earlier Wednesday night, Fred Stegner, who operates the Springfield Soup Kitchen, 830 W. Main St., told News Center 7 Edwards and Bruce visited the facility sometime before 8 p.m. Tuesday. That would have been roughly an hour before the girl’s mother reported her missing at 9:02 p.m. in German Twp., near Springfield.
Edwards eats at the facility regularly, Stegner said, but Tuesday night was the first time anyone there has seen him with the girl. There were 200 to 250 people there at the time. Springfield police and sheriff’s deputies showed photos of the man and girl to volunteers Wednesday morning.
Edwards “came in with the blond lady,” Stegner said. “I didn’t know she was 14 until I came in today[Wednesday], but many volunteers told me they saw them.”
Also Wednesday evening, sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Young said deputies have continued to receive hundreds of tips, the most credible of which is that Edwards and Bruce may have been near State Route 235 and Interstate 270 late Wednesday morning. Deputies also searched several vacant houses in the area where Edwards and the girl abandoned a rental car he was driving.
Acting on one of the early tips, deputies responded to a Knight’s Inn on West Main Street in Springfield at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday to look for Bruce and Edwards. Items believed to belong to Edwards and Bruce were located in a room. The state bureau of criminal investigation is analyzing items found in that room for DNA, Young said.
Deputies later spotted that rental car and pursued it but cut off that pursuit when the car ran a red light. Authorities found it abandoned at Rebert Pike and Cottage Drive in Springfield. A search of the area did not turn up Edwards or the girl. Officials said Edwards’ wife rented the vehicle Tuesday.

UPDATE II: Edwards was arrested in September 2013 for abduction of Michaela Bruce and faced a March 4 trial date on six counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and interference with custody involving Bruce.
Edwards was arrested in September 2013 when he was found with Bruce after she went missing from her school bus stop. At that time, Edwards and the girl werefound in a green Ford Expedition in the 3300 block of Ohio 41. She was hiding in the rear of the vehicle under blankets. Deputies found a Taser, knives, condoms, a spear and other items in the SUV. Officials have said Edwards is known to be a survivalist.
27 Year Old Kayla Michelle Finley Arrested and Charged with Not Returning a Jennifer Lopez Video Rental from 2005
This further emphasizes the point, nothing good comes from renting a J-Lo movie …
27 year old Kayla Michelle Finley arrested and charged with not returning a video tape that she rented in 2005. Making matters worse, the rental video store, Dalton Video, isn’t even in business anymore. Wait, imagine being arrested for not returning a J-Lo film, Monster-in-Law? How does one get arrested for something like this? How much could the tape or fine actually be worth? My we have come a long way in America, pot legal, but you can be arrested for not returning a video. Thankfully, technology has changed in how movies are rented these days. Finley was arrested, and spent Thursday night in jail until her bond hearing Friday morning. A judge issued a $2,000 personal recognizance bond Friday morning, and she was released. Who thinks this is a tad bit extreme and a waste of law enforcements time and money?
Public Enemy #1 – Kayla Michelle Finley
Kayla Michelle Finley, 27, has been charged with failure to return a rented video cassette, according to the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office.
According to warrants Finely rented Monster-In-Law from Dalton Video, which is no longer in business, in 2005 and the tape was not returned within 72 hours.
Finley was sent letters to return the video several times but never responded, according to the warrant. It also said a certified warrant was sent to the woman on Sept. 12, 2005.
Now if Kayla Michelle Finley had rented Gigli and not returned it, she should be forced to do hard time.

#FindSamantha: 13 Year Old Samantha Dodson Missing Since 12/3/13 in Oregon City, OR (Endangered Runaway … Believed to be with 40 Year Old Kelsey McCune)(Update: Samantha Dodson Found Safe, McCune Arrested Charged with Rape & Sodomy)
13 year old Samantha Dodson has been missing since December 3, 2013 in Oregon City, Oregon. Samantha Dodson was last seen Tuesday night and may be traveling with a 40-year-old transient man, Kelsey McCune. Samantha’s parents noticed she was missing Wednesday morning, when they went to wake her up to go to school. Authorities consider Samantha an endangered runaway. Two two might be camping. Because what else would a transient be doing who has no known address? McCune has no known address, but he is known to make money doing freelance computer work and he also may be carrying large duffel bags and backpacks with camping gear.

Police called the teen an “endangered runaway” and said she may be in the company of Kelsey McCune, 40, a family friend who authorities said has no permanent address.
It was unclear if the teen left home willingly; however police said she does not have a history of running away.
Dodson, who recently dyed her hair red, was described by police as 5-foot-4 and 125 pounds with brown eyes and a slim build.
Police said McCune is 6 feet tall and 170 pounds with a glass eye and salt-and-pepper hair.
According to FOX 12-OR, 40 year old Kelsey McCune is a long time friend of the family … of course he is. Because there is nothing more special than parents not realizing that a 40 year old, so-called friend of the family, is taking just a little too much interest in your 13 year old daughter!
The Dodson family says McCune is a family friend.
“Kelsey is a family friend of my parents. I met him a couple times in passing, but they’ve known him for years, and I know he was recently down on his luck,” said Sarah Dodson.
Samantha’s family now believes the teen and McCune had been communicating without anyone knowing. When they tried to confront McCune about it Wednesday, they say he wouldn’t return their calls, and won’t answer his messages.
“It’s my understanding that Kelsey doesn’t have a permanent residence, and we think they could be looking for a place to camp because there’s not a place to take her,” said Sarah Dodson.
The search for Samantha stretched to the Newell Creek area of Oregon City on Thursday, where a SWAT team scoured the terrain in the area.
Clackamas County deputies say they consider Samantha an endangered runaway mainly because of the age difference between her and McCune. They are also concerned about Samantha’s welfare because of the record-cold temperatures expected this week.
#FindSamantha: More pics of Samantha Dodson … Be on the look out for the missing 13 year old
Samantha Dodson, a missing 13-year-old Oregon City girl, was found in good condition in a wooded area north of an Oregon mobile home park Saturday evening, deputies said.
Deputies and the SWAT team resumed the search for Dodson around 4:30 p.m. after getting what they called a “credible” tip from a witness Saturday who saw her and 40-year-old Kelsey McCune near South Maple Lane Road and South Country Village Drive, said Sgt. Nate Thompson with the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.
McCune was also found in good condition Saturday, Thompson said. He was arrested and charged with kidnapping, sexual abuse, and rape. He was booked overnight in the Clackamas County Jail.
A vile one-eyed drifter busted by Oregon police for allegedly kidnapping and raping a teenage girl that went missing last week appeared in court Monday.
Kelsey (Patrick) McCune made his first court appearance in Oregon City while facing charges of first-degree kidnapping, custodial interference, sodomy, second-degree sexual abuse and rape.

A video released Thursday night shows Elizabeth walking across a parking lot at the high school and getting into a green sports utility vehicle. She is wearing a white top and dark pants, and is carrying a backpack and pink purse. She is 5-foot-3 and weighs 130 pounds.
Edwardo Fabien Flores Rosalas is 5-foot-9 and weighs about 200 pounds, and has black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen driving a green Ford Escape with no license plates.
UPDATE I: Information and text messages police received lead them to believe Elizabeth possibly didn’t run away with her boyfriend willingly.
Elizabeth’s mother got text messages Thursday from an unknown phone number that claimed to be Elizabeth. The messages said the couple were headed for Mexico. When the mother asked for a photo of Elizabeth, the conversation ended.
“When she asked to send a current photo and that request was refused, that’s the biggest red flag that tells us she might be in danger,” Lattin said.
Investigators have received other information that points to Elizabeth being in danger, Lattin said. He declined to say what that information is.
Local police have notified the U.S. Border Patrol in case the couple tries to leave the country, Lattin said.
UPDATE II: Amber Alert in California for kidnapped girl.
A 19-year-old man accused of abducting a Kennewick girl moved into a house on the same block as the teen just days before she left town with him, police said Friday.
Edwardo Fabien Flores Rosales started an online relationship with Elizabeth Romero while he was living in Hood River, Ore., said Kennewick police Sgt. Ken Lattin. After talking with the 14-year-old through Facebook, Rosales told his family he got a job and moved to Kennewick on Thanksgiving Day.
Rosales paid a full month’s rent for a room in a house on the same block as the girl, Lattin said.
Just days later, he had packed up his stuff, left his house key behind and took off with Elizabeth.
If anyone has any information about Elizabeth’s or Rosales’ whereabouts can call 911 or the Kennewick Police Department’s non-emergency line at 509-628-0333.
UPDATE IV: The AMBER ALERT has been canceled for missing 14 year old Elizabeth Romero has been found in Mexico. Her boyfriend, 19 year old Edwardo Fabien Flores Rosalas is still on the loose.
The California Highway Patrol says a missing teenager from Washington has been safely located in Mexico.
The CHP did not give details on how they located 14-year-old Elizabeth Romero, but canceled a statewide Amber Alert that had been active since last Thursday.
Washington police said the teen was abducted in the town of Kennewick, Washington a day earlier.
The CHP issued the alert because they thought she and her abductor may be headed to Mexico.
Her boyfriend, Edwardo Fabian Flores Rosales, is still on the loose, according to police.
UPDATE V: Girl has been found in Mexico, but out of their jurisdiction, now up to Elizabeth Romero’s family to get her back from Mexico.
