Suspect Arrested After 14-Year-Old Found in Make-Shift Grave

SUSPECT: Matthew Little

CHARGES: Reckless homicide

DATE OF ARREST: September 4

THE DETAILS: Back in April, 14-year-old Jonathan Minard went missing. Investigators eventually discovered his body buried in a shallow grave on a farm in Washington Township. The farm is owned by Little’s family, and it was soon revealed that the youngster often worked there. Detectives soon learned from an autopsy that Minard was killed due to acute fentanyl intoxication, so his death was described as “unintentional.” Despite that, 29-year-old Little will still face criminal charges. It’s clear that Little supplied drugs to the young teenager, which ultimately caused his death. In addition, Little attempted to hide the death rather than report the accident to the authorities. In all, Little is facing over 15 different charges.
