— following the disappearance of two teenage boys in Toledo, Ohio, to make arrests.
The dead, which were discovered in a vacant home that burned down earlier this month in a fire that is thought to have been started intentionally, have not been identified by authorities. On Thursday, local TV images showed law enforcement and family members of Kyshawn Pittman, 15, and Ke’Marion Wilder, 16, at the house’s rubble.
The boys were last observed alive climbing into a silver SUV on December 3 at Maumee Bay State Park. The last thing Pittman’s mother reportedly heard from him was when he requested her to book him a Lyft from a party at the Maumee Bay Lodge.
The two remains were discovered at the house, which burned down two days after the teenagers were last seen there, the Toledo Police Department reported on Thursday. According to Lt. Dan Gerken, identifying the bodies will take some time.
Five people have been taken into custody, nevertheless, in relation to the youngsters’ disappearance. After police claimed they lied about the whereabouts of the youngsters, Crystal LaForge-Yingling, Corbin Gingrich, and Carissa Eames were charged earlier this week with obstructing an investigation. Cruz Garcia and Diamond Rivera were both accused on Thursday of two counts of kidnapping and obstruction of justice, respectively.
LaForge-Yingling, Gingrich, and Eames are linked to Wilder’s girlfriend, according to Wilder’s sister. I don’t care about anything else. I just want him home, that’s it.”
“He was picked up from a party, and that was the last time we have known to see him or speak to him,” Nadolny said. “He spoke to a family member on FaceTime Saturday, and that was the last time we’ve heard or seen anything. No communication whatsoever.
“It’s like a movie we never wanted to be a part of; it’s horrible,” she said. “We just lost his mother less than a year ago. This is just horrible. It’s literally been a nightmare. Our family is falling apart.”
Reynolds told the news outlet that she and others have been searching, knocking on doors, passing fliers out.
“It’s hard to do, people turning the fliers away, all types of stuff,” she said. “It feels like everybody has something to do with it, I just want them at home.”
