Bodies found in search for 2 missing Missouri sisters, suspect is being held
EDGERTON, Mo. (AP) ¯¯¯ Authorities in Platt County, Mo., say officials have found the bodies of two women in a field after officials interrogated "a suspect in the disappearance of Britny Haarup and Ashley Key."
The Kansas City Star reported (http://bit.ly/Nsrx8S) late Sunday that the bodies were found near Trimble, Mo., in Clinton County. Platt County Sheriff's Capt. Erik Holland told the newspaper the bodies were those of white women but he could not immediately confirm the victims' identities or how they had died.
Haarup, 19, and Key, 22, were reported missing Friday from Haarup's Edgerton, Mo., home.
Holland said authorities "were led" to the area where the bodies were found by talking to the suspect in case, whom he did not identify.
"That individual is under arrest and in custody," he said.
