Akron Police issued an arrest warrant for Keith Early, 30.

According to crawfordcountynow.com, Early was "formally processed into Summit County Jail on multiple charges, including abuse of a corpse, failure to report a crime, and obstruction of official business..."

According to Mansfield News Journal, "Officers arrived after a person called to report finding the body at about 12:55 p.m. behind a residence.

"The caller, who sounded distraught on the 4½-minute 911 recording, said the young woman appeared to be 'about 19 or 20.'

"Police said Melanie was reported as a runaway on June 11."

The tragic death of Melanie Elkins is largely being ignored by the national media which is dedicating much attention to a white male who killed three blacks at a Florida Dollar General store.
