    Missing Rowan County teen killed, dismembered; suspect in custody

    The Rowan Sheriff’s Office said a teen who went missing on Sunday was murdered and another man has been arrested in his death.

    Michael Elijah Earley, 19, was reported missing after he was last seen around 10 p.m. on May 5 at his home on Sides Road, near Haynes Drive and north of Rockwell Park. Deputies asked for the public’s help locating Earley on Wednesday.

    Just before 8:30 p.m., investigators said Earley had been killed and dismembered. They said another 19-year-old, identified as Carlos Rosas, was charged in the case.

    The arrest warrants state, in part, that Rosas “attempt to conceal evidence of the death of Michael Earley by knowingly and willfully dismembering and destroying human remains.”

    Rosas is charged with murder and destroying remains/concealing death. There is no word how Earley was killed and no possible motive for the crime has been released.

    This article will be updated.

    Anyone with further information about the case should immediately call 704-216-8711 or 911.

    I noticed in the comments there was mention of him being murdered already. Unbelievably sad. I wonder if the girl he was with him was part of the crime.

    RCSO investigators were able to develop information regarding what took place after he was last seen Sunday night.

    Family members were notified late Wednesday afternoon of the developments, regarding his death.

    A suspect in this homicide has been arrested for murder and felony concealment of death. He is currently in the Rowan County Detention Center under no bond.

    The murder suspect is Carlos Rosas, Jr., a 19-year-old white male of Hispanic descent. He has a first appearance in court on May 10 at 9 a.m.

    The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office will hold a press briefing on May 9.

    This is still an active and ongoing investigation.

    A second teen arrested:

    On Thursday, Rowan County detectives announced they have also charged 18-year-old Madison Drew Harrington of Salisbury with accessory after the fact to murder “for her assistance in the concealment of the murder,” said a release.
    ...
    The missing person’s case turned into a homicide investigation Wednesday afternoon, officials said said.


    Detectives believe Earley had “an alleged prearranged drug transaction” with Rosas Jr. Sunday night, according to a release.


    “During this alleged drug transaction, involving the sale of marijuana by Earley, there was a disagreement which digressed into a struggle,” said the release.


    “The suspect, Carlos Rosas, Jr. assaulted Michael Earley and killed him. After Earley was killed, the suspect...transported the body of Earley to a secluded location. At this location, Carlos Rosas, Jr. partially dismembered the body of Earley and buried the remains.”

    Make that 3 teens arrested:

    [​IMG]

    SALISBURY, N.C. - Three arrests have been made after deputies said a Rowan County 19-year-old was killed and dismembered.

    Officials said Thursday Madison Harrington, 18, and Lauren Grimes, 19, were charged with accessory after the fact to murder for her alleged assistance in the concealment of the murder of Michael Elijah Earley.

    Carlos Rosas Jr., 19, was arrested and charged Wednesday night with murder and felony concealment of death.

    Earley was last seen around 10 p.m. Sunday in Rockwell and his girlfriend reported him missing on Monday.

    There had been a desperate search for Easley up until Wednesday when investigators announced that he was murdered.

    Authorities said they anticipate more arrests -- at least two more.

    Rosas is in the Rowan County jail under no bond and Harrington is under a $500,000 bond.

    Warrants said Rosas tried to cover up the murder by cutting Earley’s body into pieces, which he then tried to get rid of in a secluded area.

    According to an arrest warrant, Rosas "unlawfully, willfully and feloniously did attempt to conceal evidence of the death of Michael Earley by knowingly and willfully dismembering and destroying human remains, including removing body parts of Michael Earley."

    The warrant went on to say that Rosas "unlawfully, willfully and feloniously did of malice aforethought kill and murder Michael Earley."

    Rowan County Sheriff's Office investigators said at a press conference Thursday they do not believe that Michael Earley and Carlos Rosas knew each other prior to Sunday's drug buy gone bad.

    Man, when and where the heck did the disconnect happen with these teens? Horrific behaviors from males under the age of full brain development (age 22) always make me think there must have been some trauma or disconnect in their childhood. In this case, its women too - who are supposed to mature sooner! Were they abused, neglected, someone coddled them too much, didn’t bother to teach them right from wrong, apathetic toward bullying, continued a broken cycle of abuse, etc.???

    Holy smokes. I get that the son is not without fault, its a drug deal he shouldn’t have done. These parents must be devastated. I think from the parents initial comments in social media, they seemed very worried, especially regarding the girl he was with. Not sure if she is one of those posted as a perp tho. I haven’t sleuthed that far.

    Seven grams of marijuana.
    That's what Earley was killed for.

    Its time to remove the black market for marijuana. If it were legal, this would not have happened.
