    14 March 09

    Baltimore County police have identified the girl who has been missing for more than a week.

    Homicide investigators continued to search for Rochell Denise Battle, 16, of the 2800 block of Boarman Avenue in Baltimore. The girl, described as black, standing between 5-foot-1 and 5-foot-3 and weighing between 170 and 190 lbs., has been missing since March 6.

    Investigators continued to search an 8.5-acre wood surrounding Ace Roll-Off Services, a junkyard in Middle River. They also were taking a dozen dumpsters to Eastern Sanitary Landfill in White Marsh to sift through the contents.

    "Later, the family learned she connected with a man in Baltimore County. Battle had called her girlfriend to say she was with her "white friend." As her family continually tried to get in touch with her, Battle's cell phone went dead."

    Do teens really talk like that? I mean, do they say I'm with my "white" friend or "black" friend? That just doesn't sound right to me. I'm not saying I don't think they're telling the truth, but everything sounded plausible to me until that.

    Police seek help finding missing Baltimore teen after trash facility search turns up no clues
    March 19, 2009

    Baltimore County police are asking for the public's help finding a missing 16-year-old Baltimore girl.

    Police said Wednesday that a search of a trash collection facility in Chase over the weekend did not turn up information about the disappearance of Rochelle Denise Battle.

    Investigators think Battle may might have taken a bus from Eastpoint Mall to Eastern Boulevard and Old Eastern Avenue between 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. March 6.

    Acting on information they had received, police began searching Ace Roll-Off Services in the 200 block of Earls Road on Friday. The search ended Sunday.

    Cops make murder arrest despite no body

    Rochelle Battle is still missing.

    But Baltimore County police today arrested a man and charged him with killing the 16-year-old girl. No motive is listed, nor did police say whether there is any connection between the missing girl and the suspect, or how they can prove she was killed.

    Here is the statement from authorities:

    Baltimore County Police have arrested Jason Matthew Gross, 35, of the 1900-block of Eloise Lane, 21040 for the disappearance and murder of Rochelle Battle, a 16-year-old female who was reported missing March 6, 2009. Jason Gross was indicted by a Baltimore County Grand Jury in her murder.

    Police are still trying to locate Rochelle Battle’s body. Her description when she was last seen is that of a black female, 5’1” to 5’3” tall, weighing approximately 170 pounds. She was wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and boots that came just below the knees.

    Put the name of the arrested in the search box at the above. He has a long record including domestic violence and sexual assault.

    According to the comments of readers at the 1st link Texas Mist posted, they don't expect her body to be found.

    What a waste, she was so young. Prayers for her family.
