EVANSVILLE — A disabled teen from Evansville who has been missing since last year has been identified as the body found in a vacant home on Monday night.
Her body has since been identified by the Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office after an autopsy that lasted more than two hours.
The case is now being treated as a criminal inquiry, according to Captain Andy Chandler with the Evansville Police Department.
Aleah’s cousin, Donna Robertson, and her girlfriend, Deborah Wollner, were previously arrested in the case after allegedly beating a man into a false connection regarding Beckerle’s disappearance. Another man, James Wilson, Jr., was also arrested.
In September, the FBI helped police search a landfill but no evidence was found.
