PA - Davon Jones, 22, & Dianikqua Johnson, 21, found murdered, 22 Nov 2006
Two bodies were discovered in a Jefferson County strip mine early Wednesday.
Evening news stated both were dark complexion. One male, one female. They were unclothed, the male had a mustache. The female has a tattoo on her forearm with the name "Janine", and one on her back which I think they said was "Mommie".
There was no indication of the approximate ages of the victims. Not much in details have been released as of yet.
It is unknown if these people have even been missed yet, or have been reported as missing.
A bear hunter found the bodies around 8 a.m. and notified emergency crews. State police were on the scene near Falls Creek Wednesday afternoon.

Just off I-80 near Falls Creek, Pa. Actually in Jefferson county, but near the Clearfield county line.
I am just because this was just recent and also within my "stomping grounds"!
Police find body of Kelly Jo Elliott.
Story by Leigh Ann Towne Email | Bio</FONT>
WHEELING – A Pennsylvania man offered to clear an acquaintance's $200,000 cocaine debt and give the man free cocaine if he killed his mistress, according to federal authorities.
Gene Talik of Sewickly, Pa. faces federal murder charges after he was arrested in connection with the death of Ohio County resident Kelly Jo Elliott. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District announced his arrest during a press conference Tuesday. Kelly Jo Elliott, 28, was last seen at the Dallas Pike Truck Stop on May 25. Authorities said her badly-burned body was found buried in a shallow grave in Clearfield County, Pa. The F.B.I and anthropology experts made the find earlier this week.

I just asked my daughter about a Jefferson county in Pa. that is near me but I'm confused about these bodies and then the link for Kelly Jo Elliott. Are they related somehow?

Adding note: 11 p.m. news stated they were "not dressed appropriately for the weather". Earlier reports stated they were "not dressed." Gosh! Big difference!

I live in this area, too. First thing out of my husbands mouth was "I-80 dumps." I probably have to agree

Local grapevine this evening is that the female has been identified, from out of state. Nothing confirmed. I didn't catch evening news.
Area they were found is upper left of this capture, an old strip mine site. I-80 is the highway in the lower portion.

Er, so which is it? One male, one female found dead? Or, two males found dead? You're flip flopping on that, Lili. Do the news sources even know? The link you posted isn't any good now either. Do you have fresher links?

Sorry about the flip-flopping. Even the news stations were doing that.
With the holiday squeezed in there, it's been a couple of crazy days.
Gut feeling says this is the same female:
"EAST PROVIDENCE - A routine car stop just after 1 a.m. on Tuesday morning resulted in a large crack cocaine bust for East Providence Police. Officer Andrew Dubois observed a red Chevy Malibu on 195 eastbound, and stopped it on grounds of a speeding violation. The driver, later identified as Dianikqua Johnson, 21, of Fall River, Mass., stopped just before exit 8 on the highway, but told the officer she did not have a driver's license. The car had been rented in the name of the man sitting in the passenger seat, Kent Awer, 31, also of Fall River.
Both Ms. Johnson and Mr. Awer have a prior criminal history. On July 29, 2005, they were arrested in Tiverton and charged with possession with intent to deal crack cocaine. All three individuals were charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession with intent to deliver 1 oz - 1 kg., an enhancement of the first charge, and conspiracy to violate controlled substance laws. They were sent to court and held without bail.

"PUNXSUTAWNEY - Police and the district attorney formally announced the arrest of a suspect in a double homicide that occurred last week.
And although there has not been any direct evidence, Jefferson County District Attorney Jeff Burkett said officials do believe that drugs were involved in the case.
Kuzilla formally announced the arrest of Jason Robert Clinger, DuBois, as a suspect in the deaths of Davon Markeys Jones, 22, and Dianikqua Arshell Johnson, 21, both of Brooklyn, N.Y.
Police have charged Clinger with criminal homicide, kidnapping, robbery and theft.
Since the investigation is ongoing, Burkett declined to comment on a number of details, but did say that Jones - also known as "Banks" - and Johnson - also known as "Mystery Girl" - were acquainted with Clinger, and apparently went with him willingly last Tuesday.
Jones and Johnson had connections to this area, even though they were from Brooklyn, Burkett said. He also said Jones and Johnson had been in the area for a few days, and were not merely "passing through."
He didn't say whether or not Clinger has a previous criminal record.
Also, Burkett declined comment on the accuracy of Clinger's alleged statement that Jones made "a lot of money in this town," and that he "could get their money." However, Burkett did say that statement was crucial to the investigation.
As far as Burkett knew, Clinger had not resisted arrest.
A hunter found the bodies of the two victims last Tuesday along a barren road in Pine Creek Township. Mere days later, Saturday morning, police had Clinger, the suspect, in custody.
Burkett attributed the quick arrest to an "abundance of good police work" from PSP-DuBois Troop C Crime Section.
"In a case like this, you need two things: Information and good police work, and we had both shortly after the discovery," he said.
Clinger is currently being held in the Jefferson County jail without bail."
