Body Found in NY Might Be Missing Student (UPDATE: Ex-Boyfriend Charged With Murder)
Jenni-Lyn Watson's family members will be shown a body found on Saturday in Clay, New York, to determine if it is the missing student, last seen on November 19, according to the New York Post. A search party 100-strong has been examining the area north of Syracuse hoping to find Watson, a junior at Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pennsylvania. "If I start talking, I won't be able to finish. It's too emotional," said a relative of Watson's in Syracuse. An autopsy on the body is scheduled to begin today. [NYP]
UPDATE: The body is believed to be Watson and her ex-boyfriend, 21-year-old Steven M. Pieper, has been charged with murder. He will be arraigned on Sunday.
