A third suspect was arrested in Ohio on April 7 on the same charges as Bemis and Smith. Her name is being withheld pending her arraignment on the charges.

Kayla Sedoskey's body was found tied up and wrapped in a tarp with tape over her mouth at the abandoned Boysville Juvenile Detention Center in Frenchtown Township on March 2. The 22-year-old lived a few miles from where she was found dead.

"My 5-year-old saw it on the news and says, 'Dad why is Aunt Kayla on TV?' How do you explain that to a 5-year-old?" said Tim Booth, who was friends with Sedoskey for eight years.

She would make it to church though – and was always on Facebook. That all stopped around Valentine’s Day.

"I started to get a little worried," Booth said. "I figured it was Kayla being Kayla, she will come around. Then we find her dead in Boysville."

Michigan State Police have not released the motive for the murder.
