Authorities remain stumped on location of suspect in Marine case


JACKSONVILLE (AP) -- Investigators searching for the suspect in the death of a 20-year-old pregnant fellow Marine say they've talked with his family but don't know where he is.

Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown would not say what he's learned by talking to the family of Corporal Cesar Laurean.

Lance Corporal Maria Lauterbach had accused Laurean of rape. Officials think they found Lauterbach's burned body in Laurean's back yard in Onslow County on Saturday. They are awaiting positive identification.
