Body of Hampshire County Youth Found Saturday

July 19th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The search for 14 year old Jonathon Benjamin Adams, of Hampshire County, has come to a close.

At 11:20am Saturday, investigators located a shallow grave containing a set of human remains, believed to be that of Adams, in a heavily wooded area, near the location the victim was reported missing last Sunday morning. The area of the recovery was extremely difficult to access due to heavy underbrush.

A 16 year old relative has been arrested and charged with burglary. Investigators have also developed a suspect in the death of Adams. The investigation still continues into the events surround the child’s death, and an autopsy has been ordered. More information will be released as it becomes available.

Anyone with information should call 304-822-3894.
