Crime Stories with Nancy Grace: NEIGHBOR’S YARD DUG UP After Tot Boy Michael Vaughn Vanishes

It’s been over a year since Michael Vaughn vanished from his family home. Tips lead police to the home of a neighbor, Sarah Wondra. The 35-year-old was charged with failure to report the death of 5-year-old Vaughan.

Police then spent more than a week excavating the home’s backyard and announced their findings. FPD Chief JD Huff says police believe Vaughan’s body was buried in Wondra’s backyard and then moved to another location.

All the cadaver dogs used in the search “alerted” in the yard. Ground penetrating radar also detected “anomalies.” Additional evidence was found in the home, but that information is not yet being released.

Huff also announced the identities of two other people thought to have knowledge in  Vaughan’s disappearance,  Brandon Shurtliff, 30,  and Adrien Lucienne, 32. Both men are now out of state. Shurtliff and Lucienne were staying at the Wondras’ home.

The search for Michael Vaugh’s body continues.
