    Police yesterday continued their search for 71-year-old Vernon Hayden of Elizabeth Township, but an affidavit supporting the arrest of his step-grandson on theft and burglary charges indicates he stole Mr. Hayden's truck and wallet and used his ATM card in Uniontown and on the South Side.

    The court papers also indicate that Timothy Large Jr., identified as the suspect in Mr. Hayden's disappearance, lied when he told police that he ditched the fiberglass cap of Mr. Hayden's Chevy Silverado along Route 51 in Uniontown on Dec. 9.

    Sounds like the step-grandson had something to do with the disappearance. I wonder what he did with the missing man? He even had his wallet! I hope they find the man even though I don't think the outcome is going to be a good one. Step-grandson is probably a druggie.

    "Timothy Alan Large Jr., of Forward Township, described in gruesome detail how he shot his stepgrandfather in the head and disposed of his body, police say.

    Large Jr., who police said confessed to shooting and killing his step-grandfather and dumping the body in a river, was charged Tuesday with criminal homicide.

    Officials Locate Missing Elizabeth Twp Man's Body

    "The body of 71-year-old Vernon Hayden was found in a shallow grave near the Somerset-Bedford County border on Wednesday.

    Hayden's step-grandson, Timothy Large, Jr., of Forward, is facing several charges in the man's death.

    Initially, officials say Large told police he killed Hayden and dumped his body in the Monongahela River.

    That prompted divers to search the river for days without success, but police say Large eventually admitted to where he actually put Hayden's body"
