SUV involved in fatal crash was stolen, owner says

The owner of an SUV that flipped into a pond with a load of teenagers in Ohio says the vehicle had been stolen.

Six teenagers died in the crash Sunday, while two others managed to escape from the wreckage.

The State Highway Patrol said the vehicle’s owner filed a theft report with police Monday, saying it was stolen in Warren.

State police earlier said that no one in the group had permission to take the vehicle. Investigators also say that none of the teenagers were wearing seat belts.

The dead were 14 to 19 years old. Authorities said the SUV was speeding when it hit a guardrail.


Police search Northwest for suspect in two killings

Police are searching the Northwest for a man who they say killed his grandparents in the Seattle area and stole their car just hours after being released from a Washington state prison, and has since tried to obtain weapons.

Michael “Chad” Boysen, 26, is considered extremely dangerous, police said. He was released from prison Friday after serving several years for robbery, and his grandparents picked him up. He is suspected of killing the 82-year-old man and 80-year-old woman Friday night or early Saturday at their home in Renton, authorities said.

“I can’t stress how dangerous this guy is,” King County Sheriff John Urquhart said Monday. He said Boysen had made threats against family members and law enforcement officials.

The seriously wounded victim was shot in the back and was in critical condition Monday afternoon, police said.
