3 Teens Suspected in Indiana Woman's Death After Body Found in Abandoned Gary School

Adriana Saucedo's body was found Thursday night, and two suspects are in custody

Three teens are suspected in the death of an Indiana woman whose body was found in an abandoned Gary elementary school Thursday

A 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy are both in custody in connection with the case, according to Gary police. A 17-year-old suspect remains at large, authorities said. 

The family of 27-year-old Adriana Saucedo said her body was found Thursday night after she had been reported missing earlier in the week.

Portage police said it was reported that Saucedo left her home Tuesday with a man who was supposed to take her to an unknown location to purchase marijuana.

Saucedo then posted on Facebook 15 minutes later that she was stopping for gas, and her family had not heard from her since.

The 27-year-old was reported missing Wednesday morning when she didn't show up for work in Valparaiso, police said. 

Further details on what happened to Saucedo or how the teen suspects are involved remained unclear Friday afternoon.
