Autopsies done on teens reported missing

A coroner said autopsies have been completed on two teenage brothers in northwest Ohio who had been reported missing this week.

But authorities aren’t releasing the results yet as they continue their investigation.

The two brothers were found dead on Thursday near the small town of Ottawa after authorities were directed to their bodies by a third teen.

The 17-year-old who was taken into custody in Columbus pleaded not guilty to a grand theft auto charge Friday in juvenile court.

Prosecutors said they anticipate filing additional charges.

The three teens lived in a trailer home in Ottawa with their mothers.

Putnam County Sheriff Mike Chandler said the bodies of the 14-year-old and 17-year-old brothers were found in different locations. Few other details have been released about the case.
