ThjE SALINA JOURNAL NATION WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1997 AF' BOY SLAIN Police find boy's body in container Suspect's description of bridge helps police find body in cement-filled tub By HOLLY RAMER Tlte Associated Press '.,,.-. The Associated Press Charles Jaynes, 22, wears a bullet-proof vest Tuesday as he arrives In Newton District Court for his arraignment In the murder and kidnapping of 10-year- oldjjeffrey Curley of Cambridge, Mass. T'SHOOTING RAMPAGE SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — Police divers searching a river Tuesday found a plastic cement-filled container holding the body of a 10-year-old boy who authorities say was kidnapped and smothered with a gas- soaked rag. Jeffrey Curley's body was taken to the state medical examiner's office in Augusta, 90 miles away, for autopsy. "This container matches what we've been looking for," said John McEvoy, assistant district attorney for Middlesex County, Mass. Two men are accused of kidnapping the boy last week from near his Cambridge, Mass., home, by luring him into their car with the promise of $50 and a new bike. Police say Jeffrey was killed after refusing to have sex with the men. The suspects then took the body to an apartment in Manchester, N.H., where the body was sexually molested, then dumped in the Great Works River, a tributary of the Piscataqua River that divides New Hampshire and Maine, police said. The body was found after four days of searching and an appeal for the public's help in finding a bridge that one of the suspects had described as the place where they dumped the boy. Once divers began searching the area Tuesday, a resident suggested they look near a particular tree that often catches river debris in its roots. The container was found there six feet under water. Salvatore Sicari, who lives in Jeffrey's neighborhood, told police he and Charles Jaynes stalked the boy for two weeks and put his body in a green and gray plastic tub, filled the container with cement and lime, wrapped it with duct tape and dumped it somewhere within 25 miles of Portsmouth, N.H. Sicari said he didn't know the exact location of where the body was dumped because he had been dozing as Jaynes drove, but he described a bridge, a gray house and an auto junkyard nearby. Bonnie Ham said that after hearing a description of the bridge where the men dumped the body, she awoke in the middle of the night and realized it could be her street. "I was hoping I was wrong. I'm sick. This isn't supposed to happen," she said. Jaynes, 22, of Brockton, Mass., and Manchester, N.H., and Sicari, 21, are being held without bail after pleading not guilty to murder and kidnapping. Both were arraigned Tuesday in Newton, Mass. Police who searched Jaynes' apartment said they found the child's dungarees and a maroon and gold football jersey with the No. 32 that his mother said he was wearing the afternoon he disappeared. In Jaynes' Cadillac, police said they ', found pornographic magazines and receipts for the lime, concrete and storage container used to dispose of the body. >ix teens charged in rampage station reports t$6»ns plotted to kill sliklents and fathers By trie Associated Press iARjL, Miss. — Six teen-agers charged Tuesday with mur- mspiracy in connection with nrnpage last week in which a 16•old allegedly stabbed his er to death and fatally shot ichoolmates. ice Chief Bill Slade would iy what role the students are [ged to have played in the ]ng spree. !. are still conducting an in- ;ation," he said. "That's all I v." .eyision station WLBT-TV in on, however, reported that ;$s of affidavits it had obtained id! that aU six plotted to kill lents at Pearl High School, and two suspects also were ac- of plotting to .kill their fa- le (lawyer for one of the two is client is innocent, •ttorney James Bell also said " ild | Brooks Sr. "fully sup" hjis 17-year-old son, Donald 'T'SPne arrests began Monday „ night. The teen : agers — five of tjtiem students at Pearl High School, where the shooting rampage took place Oct. 1 —-pleaded not guilty and were jailed on $1 million bail each. Among those arrested was 16- year-old Justin Sledge, a close friend of Luke Woodham, the teenager accused in the rampage. Last week, Sledge provided news organizations with what he said was a document written by Woodham, in which Woodham claimed to have planned the killings. Sledge said Woodham gave hun the papers on the morning of the shooting. Woodham had been picked on by other students, who called him a nerd and knocked his books out of his hands. In the letter provided by Sledge, he said: "I am not insane. I am angry. I killed because people like me are mistreated every day. I did this to show society push us and we will push back." Merrida Coxwell, Sledge's lawyer, said the affidavit filed against his client did not name any victims. "It doesn't even connect them with Woodham," Coxwell said. "They (police) certainly better be doing more than investigating to name a student with crime." June Goodin, whose 18-year-old son Delbert Shaw was also arrested, said he has been living with her for the past two weeks in Louisville, about 90 miles northeast of Pearl, and was not in Pearl at the time of the shootings. BRIEFLY Ex-boyfriend kills 2 at paging company !

INDEPENDENCE, Va. — A white man talked about plans to "kill a Negro" hours before a black man was burned alive and beheaded outside a backwoods trailer, a witness testified in a hearing Tuesday. ; Louis Ceparano and Emmett Cressell Jr. were described as longtime buddies who dragged.

' Ceparano, 42, faces preliminary capital murder and robbery charges. Cressell Jr., 36 faces preliminary first-degree murder and robbery charges. Man arrested after shots are fired at monument i WASHINGTON — A 60-year-old Indiana man was arrested Tuesday after two shotgun blasts were f}red on the Washington Monu- jjient grounds two blocks from the White Hpuse. ; U.S. Park Police said Lynn Thacker, Bedford, Ind,, was charged with three misderjieanors: possession of a prohibit& weapon, illegally discharging a firearm and destruction of gov- ernment property.

Police said Thacker fired two rounds from a Remington 870 pump-action shotgun about 11:20 a.m. A sign on the monument grounds was hit by one of the blasts but no one was injured, said Park Police Maj. James McLaughlin. Friend says rabbi wanted wife dead PHILADELPHIA — A friend of a rabbi whose wife was slain in 1994 told a grand jury the rabbi asked him whether he could help arrange to have her killed, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Tuesday. Myron "Pep" Levin testified that Rabbi Fred Neulander, Cherry Hill, N.J., made the request weeks before Carol Neulander was found bludgeoned to death in her home, the Inquirer reported. Carol Neulander, 52, was killed Nov. 1,1994, Neulander said he found the body when he arrived home. Law enforcement officials have identified the rabbi as a suspect, but he has maintained his innocence. No arrests have been made. Woman freed of 'Seinfeld' verdict MILWAUKEE — The Miller Brewing Co. employee who complained after a Miller executive told her about a racy "Seinfeld" episode will not have to pay him $1.5 million in damages for getting him fired, a judge ruled. The company itself still might have to pay millions, though. Circuit Judge Louise Tesmer on Monday dropped the punitive damages that the jury assessed in July against Patricia Best, who had lodged the complaint against Jerold Mackenzie. The judge also reduced the award against Robert Smith, a Miller vice president, from more than $500,000 to $100,000. Casey said the judge ruled that under law, the jury could not assess punitive damages — to punish Best — because it had not found her liable for any part of the actual damages — Mackenzie's dollar loss for his firing.
