    Not sure if I should put this here or crimes in the news. The suspect robbed a bank and held a gun to a womans head the day after he was seen at the store using Matts bank card. You can see the pictures of him in the video to the right.

    CHESTERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - Hundreds gathered Wednesday night for an emotional vigil to pray for Matt Landry. He's missing, and there are fears he crossed paths with a teenager charged in a crime spree. Matt vanished Sunday, and the worry is he fell into a tangled web that involves carjacking, robbery and kidnapping.

    My prayers are with Matt and his family. It's so scary to think that you can be kidnapped in broad daylight like that.

    The suspect is disgusting. Smiling at the camera and knowing whether he had any involvement (obviously he did when you compare the two people in the surviellance video) in Matt's disappearance.

    Police find body in vacant house

    Detroit Police have discovered a body of a white male inside a vacant home near Gratiot and 7 Mile.

    Police spokesman John Roach would not confirm whether the body is that of missing 21-year-old Chesterfield Township resident Matt Landry.

    However, sources told the Free Press that Roseville Police are also at the scene.

    Landry has been missing since Sunday and is feared to be the victim of a carjacking and kidnapping.

    Law enforcement agencies in Macomb County are investigating whether a 17-year-old Flint teen -- arraigned Wednesday in a Roseville carjacking and expected to be arraigned today on charges of robbing a Harrison Township bank while holding a pistol to the head of a female customer -- was involved in Landry's disappearance.

    I read about so many horrific crimes on this site and I can't help but be affected (as I'm sure all of us are). For some reason this one has really affected me. I'm so angry that this POS most likely took this young man's life.

    Ihab MasalmaniIhab Masalmani, the 17-year-old Flint native charged with carjacking, a bank robbery, and possibly connected to the disappearance of another man, was arraigned on six felony counts in court today.

    This is the second recent court appearance for Masalmani. Today, he was arraigned for a bank robbery in Harrison Township; on Wednesday, he was arraigned for a carjacking in Roseville.

    Police are investigating if he is also tied to the disappearance of the still-missing Matt Landry, who was allegedly carjacked and kidnapped in Eastpointe. Landry has been missing since Sunday; his car was found on Detroit's east side.

    WDIV reports that Masalmani pressed a gun to a bank customer's head and said he would kill her if he didn't get $50,000.
    "I thought it was a joke at first, but he kept saying he had a gun," the customer told WDIV. "I thought I was going to die."

    The customer fell to the ground and said "no" when Masalmani tried to kidnap her from the bank. He did manage to leave with a sum of cash, but he did so leaving everyone in the bank unharmed.

    Today's charges for Maslamani include armed bank robbery, felony firearm and kidnapping. During Wednesday's arraignment, Masalmani laughed and spit on the floor after being accused of trying to carjack a Roseville teen in front of a Wal-Mart.

    Police are also investigating Masalmani's possible role in Landry's disappearance. A surveillance video allegedly shows Masalmani buying a shirt at a gas station where Landry used his ATM card before he disappeared.

    This 17 year old suspect appears to have some problems that need some professional attention. I am inclined to think he has suffered mentally. First it was reported he was from Liberia now they say Lebanon. Even talking about deporting him.
    Dental records proved it is Matt. My condolences to his family.

    Just watched the show tonight and feel incredibly sad for Matt's parents, Bob and Doreen Landry, his siblings,beautiful girlfriend Fran, bandmates, many friends and others who were so blessed to know and love this amazing young man.

    The two young men charged and convicted of ending his life with a bullet to the back of the head and leaving his body to rot in an abandoned burned out hellhole will live behind bars for the rest of their miserable, worthless lives. But they will live.

    RIP Matt I wish I could have known you.
