GREENE COUNTY, Ind. — The Linton Police Department announced late Monday that state conservation officers located a body around 5 p.m. believed to be a missing 19-year-old Linton girl.

According to an advisory issued by the police department, the identity of the body has not been confirmed, but there is enough information to lead officials to believe the body is that of Katelyn Wolfe.  Authorities said the body was discovered in a rural area in Sullivan County.  The exact location is not being disclosed at this time.

Police do suspect foul play in Wolfe’s disappearance and are treating the death as a homicide.

Linton Police Chief Troy Jerrell announced late Monday two people were in custody in connection with Wolfe’s disappearance. Randal E. Crosley and Jordan W. Buskirk are preliminarily charged with murder.

Wolfe, 19, was last heard from around 3 a.m. on Thursday, June 6. Her father reported her missing that afternoon.  Police said they believe Wolfe was killed within hours of her disappearance.

Police said Wolfe knew at least one of the two men in custody.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday in Terre Haute.
