The two bodies were found in a field in Clinton County late last night. Police have not yet confirmed whether or not they are the bodies of Britny Haarup, 19, and Ashley Key, 22, who vanished on Friday.
The person of interest has now been taken into custody.
Matt Meyers, Haarup’s fiancee, apparently found their two kids, 6 months and 18 months old, alone in their crib when he came home from work on Friday. Meyers also found blood inside the home, and police we called.
On Saturday, a pick-up belonging to Meyers’ father was found abandoned several miles from the women’s home.
There were no signs of foul play found in or around the vehicle, according to authorities.
“She is a very good mother. She would never leave her kids at home, especially for that amount of time,” said Cassandra Meyers, Haarup’s sister-in-law.
A candlelight vigil was held on Saturday night in Edgerton.
