Two More Bodies Found Tied to Craigslist

Two bodies, discovered in different parts of the state, are both suspected victims of the Craigslist shooters.

The Noble County Sheriff’s Office says the body of a white male was discovered Friday in a shallow grave in Stock Township.

This is the same area where 51-year-old David Pauley of Norfolk, Virginia was found shot to death in a shallow grave earlier this month. And where a South Carolina man was shot.

Also, Friday the FBI announced they’ve discovered a body near the Rolling Acres Shopping Mall in Akron.

Agency spokeswoman Vicki Anderson says the cause of death and identity are still under investigation. The FBI is working on the possibilty that it could be 47-year-old Timothy Kern of Massillon, who hasn’t been seen in more than a week.

The four men are believed to have answered a phony Craigslist job ad to be a farm hand on a 668 acre farm near Caldwell.

Two people from the Akron area are in custody, a high school student who has been charged with attempted murder and 52-year-old Richard Beasley, who is in jail on unrelated charges.

Authorities can not release many details due to a judge’s gag order.
