Authorities say a North Carolina man has been charged with homicide and being a fugitive from justice after authorities discovered a woman's body in the trunk of his car in western Virginia.
WAVY-TV in Portsmouth, Va., reported Sunday that Clifton Forge, Va. police took into custody 19-year-old Enrico Luciano Mascaro on Friday night after he returned to his parked 1996 Mustang. When police searched the trunk, they found the body of a woman.
Police in Kitty Hawk, N.C. had put out a nationwide alert for Mascaro and 18-year-old Danielle Dennis-Towne of Steiger, Ill., after finding a crime scene. WAVY-TV reported that police used
cellular phone towers to track the Mustang.
Kitty Hawk Police Chief David R. Ward told The Associated Press early Monday that Mascaro has been charged with homicide there.
