    Shields says information from an investigation of robberies and burglaries led police to other possible criminal activity. They searched the body of water on Monday and didn't find anything, but got more information which led to Tuesday's discovery.

    The body is believed to be that of a man who may have died several months ago, according to Indiana County Coroner Michael Baker.

    ``The people that we want to look at are all going to be dust in the wind'' if police release too much information, Cpl. Kirt Allmendinger said.

    I remember when Rodnell Burton went missing.
    Since Hitler is tatooed on the suspects chest,
    will this be a hate crime?

    Passionflower, I was thinking that also...How sad... I really hope that it's not Rodnell, but his family needs closure or to know where he is....

    It's certainly looking like that, isn't it? Poor Rodnell, or whoever the victim is.
    I hope they get a definitive answer soon.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    From what I hearrd on the news last night, a group of suspects are beng looked at???
    IIRC this started out as a burglary case. Then a guy squeeled about the barrel and now the burglars caught are telling everything to save themselves some jail time.

    I saw that too.... I guess Rodell's family said they don't even know if he knew that Jon Black (suspect) , but Rodell was known to frequent the Blairsville area...

    I read in the Tribune Review an interesting article about this suspect... Link Below.. http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt...cmp=networkbar

    State police at Indiana said Jon Anthony Black, 32, was taken into custody Saturday by the Danville police without incident and lodged in Southwestern Regional Jail in Holden, W.Va.. Extradition proceedings are under way

    Still no positive ID for remains that were found at this time.
