    Two people have been arrested over the deaths of Breezy Otteson (17) and Riley Powell (18) after their bodies were found in a mine shaft

    https://www.sltrib.com/news/2018/01/...missing-teens/


    Searchers found a Jeep belonging to two missing teens in Juab County on Thursday, but said there was ?no sign? of the teens.

    Riley Powell, 18, and Brelynne ?Breezy? Otteson, 17, left Tooele in the Jeep about 9:30 a.m. Dec. 30. They two had been dating about four months, Otteson?s aunt Amanda Hunt said, and were planning to head to the home they share in Eureka. But they haven?t been seen or heard from since.

    In a statement released Tuesday morning, the Juab County Sheriff?s Office said investigators now believe someone else dropped off Riley Powell?s Jeep near Cherry Creek Reservoir before it was discovered last week.
    In Tuesday?s announcement, cops said they suspect foul play.

    ?The circumstances surrounding the recovery of the vehicle, its condition and general placement of the vehicle is determined to be highly suspicious. These factors, in addition to other investigative leads and pieces of evidence, have led investigators to believe the Jeep was dropped off there by intention and not by the two missing individuals, and foul play is strongly suggested,? the statement from the sheriff?s office said.

    Search teams found Powell?s Jeep after nearly a week of intense searching in remote parts of Juab County and Tooele County.

    Family of the teens knew the pair liked to go off-roading and may have become stranded on a trail.

    Warrants reveal new evidence in case of two missing Utah teens

    A pair of unsealed search warrants shed new light on the investigation of what happened to two teens who vanished in Juab County earlier this month.

    The warrants were made public Wednesday and detail tips that investigators have received about the disappearance of Breezy Ottenson, 18, and Riley Powell, 18, who were last seen on Dec. 30 2017.

    “Several leads regarding the whereabouts of the couple have been followed up on. Several stories that included a possible drug deal gone bad, in which the couple was harmed were mentioned,” the warrant states.

    The warrant also revealed the couple was spotted in Eureka on the afternoon of December 30. Prior to the warrant’s revelation Wednesday, the last public reported sighting of the couple was when they left a family member’s home in Tooele County.

    A search party found the couple’s Jeep in a remote stretch of mountain near Cherry Creek in Juab County on Jan. 11, 2018.

    According to the warrant, the Jeep had two flat tires and three windows rolled down and several personal items were located inside.

    “It appeared the vehicle was undisturbed, there was nothing that appeared out of the ordinary upon initial observation,” the warrant states.

    Juab County investigators said publicly that foul play was suspected after the Jeep was found.

    After stating this, I wonder what is was that made them suspect foul play?

    Here is the latest.

    Tooele County Sheriff's Office
    Police search property of missing Eureka teen's mother


    LOFGREEN, Tooele County — Investigators recently searched the property of the mother of a Eureka teen who has not been seen since Dec. 30, according to a new search warrant affidavit.

    Riley Powell, 18, and Brelynne "Breezy" Otteson, 17, were officially reported missing Jan. 2 after embarking on a drive from Tooele to Eureka days earlier. On Jan. 11, Powell's missing Jeep was found partially hidden in trees, about a mile south of Cherry Creek Reservoir. The two passenger-side tires were flat.

    Based on evidence collected at the scene, the Juab County Sheriff's Office announced that foul play is suspected in the couple's disappearance.

    According to a warrant unsealed Monday in Tooele County's 3rd District Court: "The rear passenger tire had a puncture in the side wall that appeared to be straight in with a smaller flat shaped object. The front passenger tire had two punctures identical to the rear tire. There was no tear in the side wall that would indicate that the tires were moving when punctured."

    A witness reported to investigators that a truck was spotted pulling a Jeep like "the one Riley is always driving" on Jan. 2 in the Lofgreen area, located off state Route 36 between Vernon and Eureka. The truck matched the description of a vehicle driven by the boyfriend of Powell's mother, the warrant states.

    On Jan. 15, Tooele County sheriff's deputies and deputies from the Sanpete/Juab Major Crimes Task Force went to the property where Powell's mother lives with her boyfriend, Riley Powell's grandmother and the grandmother's boyfriend, the warrant states.

    A camouflage tie down strap, identical to the one found in Powell's Jeep, was seized, according to the affidavit.

    "Based on the above facts, it is suspected that the blue Chevy truck described above was used to transport, conceal, hide and plant the victims' vehicle in Cherry Creek at the location it was discovered, to give the illusion that the victims were indeed stranded," investigators wrote in the warrant.

    Three of the residents, including Powell's mother and grandmother, willingly went to the Tooele County Sheriff's Office to be interviewed. The boyfriend of the mother did not, the warrant states.

    Police say the three people who were interviewed had different accounts about where Powell's mother and her boyfriend were on New Year's Eve. She claimed she was at her residence. Two others said she was not, the affidavit says.

    The warrant requested the use of K-9 and cadaver dogs to search the property.

    Other items seized included a receipt from a store in Eureka dated Dec. 28, according to the warrant.

    In previous court documents, it was revealed that the couple was seen in the Eureka area on the afternoon of Dec. 30 heading west on U.S. 6 out of town. The couple started driving on Dec. 30 and had planned to stop in Spanish Fork before going home to Eureka, where the two live with Powell's grandfather.

    Juab County Sheriff Doug Anderson could not comment Monday on the search warrant. He said there are currently several "investigative leads" in the case but no persons of interest. He said several warrants had been served as part of the investigation and different leads are coming into his office each day.

    It sounds like Riley's mom and mom's bf had something to do with their deaths.

    Volunteers plunge thousands of feet into mine shafts looking for missing Tooele teens

    Volunteers have been lowering themselves 1,100 to 1,200 feet into mineshafts to try to locate the bodies of teens who are believed to be dead. Several of the shafts connect to a series of other mines that are filled with trash and debris making the search difficult.

    “It’s hard. It’s dangerous to get down to the bottom of these shafts,” said volunteer Jeremy Maclee.

    Jesse Anthony Sanchez, one of the volunteers who has been looking for the young couple for several weeks, said it is sad that they haven’t been found yet.

    “I’m Riley’s dad. I don’t care about anything else,” Bill Powell said. “I just want the kids found.”

    Utah man facing murder charges in connection with Juab Co. teens’ deaths

    Jerrod William Baum, 41, faces two counts of aggravated murder, two counts of aggravated kidnapping and two counts of abuse or desecration of a human body, among other charges.

    Baum is suspected of murdering Brelynne "Breezy" Otteson and Riley Powell, a Eureka couple who disappeared December 30 and were reported missing January 2.

    According to the Juab County Sheriff's Office, Baum had been arrested on January 30 for probation violations at his Mammoth residence. A probable cause statement indicates Baum is not allowed to possess firearms, and his girlfriend, Morgan Lewis Henderson, had purchased a .45-caliber handgun and ammunition, which she took to Baum's residence.

    On Sunday, detectives interviewed Henderson at the Sanpete County Sheriff's Office. Henderson had previously spoken with investigators because a search warrant yielded evidence she had communicated with Powell via Facebook Messenger the day before he and Otteson disappeared.

    "The messages showed that Riley and Morgan agreed to meet at Morgan’s house," according to a probable cause statement for Baum. "Morgan eventually told detectives that [Powell and Otteson] did arrive sometime after midnight on 12/30/17 in Riley’s Jeep. They came into the residence and stayed for 40 minutes, smoked some 'weed', and left. She stated that she did not know where they went or what happened to them."

    Henderson, who was living with Baum and his father, Bill Baum, told investigators she was scared to admit Powell and Otteson had visited "for fear that she would get into trouble for having people over with Jared [sic] and Bill," the probable cause statement said.

    During the interview Sunday, Henderson told detectives that Baum let her know he was aware Powell and Otteson had visited.

    "[Baum] told [Henderson] he had previously instructed her not to have guy friends and that it was too bad because he has never killed an innocent before," the probable cause statement said. "[Henderson] said that later [Baum] told her that he took care of Riley and Brelynne."

    I still think the meth head parents are somehow involved.

    It wouldn't surprise me to find out they all hung out together and planned this in a way only meth heads can.

    Apparently Morgan has a string of dead partners -

    I used to be good friends with Morgan but I cut her off about a year ago after discovering numerous lies she had told and things she had stolen from me. And the fact that most people who know her and her deceased husband Tregen Lewis (RIP) fully believe that his death was not a suicide but a homicide, she had murdered him. Then her last bf died in a car wreck that he insinuated abd basically caused. Now I find out that she has viciously taken the lives of these innocent teens...well I am just absolutely disgusted to think I ever even gave her the time of day. At first it was pure anger. Then I remembered her poor, sweet son, Enzo. And I burst into tears for him, for the teens and for their families. So many lives destroyed because 2 sick, pathetic, sad excuses for human beings decided to commit this strocious, viscious act of murder. Parents and siblings that will never see their sin and brother, their daughter and sister. A child who will need serious therapy just knowing what a monster his mother truly was and is. I am so thankful Enzo, who is the sweetest boy ever, has bit been in her custody for the past year and a half. My heart is heavy as it goes out to the families of these teens, to Enzo, and to all who have been impacted by the evil actions of these 2 disgusting lowlifes. May they get JUSTICE for what was taken from them...everything.




    We actually already had Tregen on the site - http://mydeathspace.com/article/2016...ith_depression

    Man forced teen to watch boyfriend's murder before killing her, prosecutors say

    A Utah man forced a teenage girl to kneel and watch her boyfriend being beaten and stabbed before she was killed and thrown down an abandoned mine shaft, prosecutors said Tuesday.

    Jerrod W. Baum, 41, killed the couple moments after congratulating them because he believed they were expecting a baby, according to court documents.

    However, Brelynne “Breezy” Otteson, 17, was not pregnant at the time of her death, prosecutors said.

    Utah County prosecutor Chad Grunander did not elaborate on why Baum believed Otteson was pregnant before he cut her throat.

    Man charged in Eureka teens’ murders could face death penalty

    The man accused of kidnapping and killing two Eureka teens could face the death penalty.

    The Utah County Attorney’s Office said 41-year-old Jerrod William Baum is charged with two counts of aggravated murder, two counts of aggravated kidnapping, two counts of desecration of a human body, possession of a dangerous weapon and obstruction of justice.
    Henderson told police Baum was angry Otteson and Powell had visited her.

    She told police Baum tied the teens’ hands and feet, duct-taped their mouths and put them in the back of their Jeep.

    Baum then drove all of them to the Tintic Standard No. 2 Mine in a remote area of Utah County, according to court documents.

    The documents state Baum forced Otteson to kneel near the open mine pit and watch him beat and stab Powell before Baum slit her throat and threw the teens into the open mine to die.
