    OH - Alesha Bell, 18, Warren, 23 July 2015


    I am putting Alesha on here even though her body may have been found.

    Warren police issue alert for missing woman

    Tiffany Knepper filed a missing person’s report and on Wednesday, Warren police issued an alert. They are looking for 18-year-old Alesha Bell.

    She is 5-foot-1, 115 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing burgundy and black leggings, a flannel shirt and brown sandals.

    And Wednesday night, her mother will spend another sleepless night worried about her child’s safety.

    “I want her home now. Now,” Knepper said.

    She said she last saw her daughter, Alesha, on Southwest Boulevard walking to her uncle’s house about 5 p.m. on July 23.

    “‘Mom, if I make it home, I need you. I’m scared.’And that’s the last I heard from her,” Knepper said of a text message she received on Friday.

    JEFFERSON, Ohio - Authorities say they have determined the identity of the person whose remains were found in a fire pit near an Ashtabula County home. However, investigators will not release the name of that person until Thursday.

    The Ashtabula County Sheriff will hold a press conference at 10 a.m., to provide an update on the investigation into bones discovered during a drug raid at a home in the community of Roaming Rock Shores last month.

    The article you linked has been updated, apparently, and the headline now reads:

    Warren woman learns her daughter's remains were found in Ashtabula Co.

    Still says the sheriff's department will hold a press conference at 10 a.m. for the official announcement, but apparently Alesha's mother has been notified and spoke exclusively with one reporter.

    So sad. Rest in peace, Alesha. Prayers for comfort for your mother, for your little son and for all who loved you.

    Teen Who Texted Mom 'I'm Scared' Found Dead
    The crime "is beyond all sensibilities."
    David Lohr Senior Crime Reporter, The Huffington Post
    Posted: 09/03/2015 03:36 PM EDT | Edited: 09/03/2015 03:36 PM EDT

    [...]
    The first break in the case came on August 20, when narcotics agents raided a home in Roaming Shores, a small community located approximately 40 miles north of Warren. During a search of the property, authorities discovered human bones in a backyard fire pit.

    After the discovery, authorities arrested 40-year-old James Brooks of Rome. He faces multiple charges, including abuse of a corpse, tampering with evidence, drug trafficking and weapons violations.

    Ashtabula County Prosecutor Nicholas Iarucci told WFMJ.com that Brooks admitted to being with Bell on July 23, but claimed he dropped her off in Warren.
    The article goes on to say that Brooks "admitted to running an escort service between May 2014 and May 2015".

    Now the mother of Jasmaine Smith, 22, who's been missing since June 5, is afraid Brooks might be connected to her daughter's disappearance. Jasmaine and her friends knew Brooks, according to her mother.

    It is unknown at this time whether there are other remains in the fire pit.

    "Three other teens are missing from Ashtabula and Warren. "

    The guy says he dropped her off in Warren. But she was found burned in his backyard which was an 1hr away from Warren?

    That was the second time LE checked the home. So someone must have told LE the exact time to search.

    He was a dealer and pimp. But I wonder if she was accosted while going down the road to visit relatives. Or was that part made up. So sad. Rip.
