Lance Corporal Maria Lauterbach, a 20 year-old Marine, was eight months pregnant at the time of her disappearance almost a month ago. This morning, she has been found dead.
Sheriff Ed Brown announced this morning at a press conference that her body was found buried in Onslow County, North Carolina. Though the sheriff is not calling it murder at this time, he did say that Sergeant Daniel Durham is being questioned. A key witness, not Durham, provided the information that lead police to her body.
The family's last contact with the Marine was Dec. 14, and the last time she was seen was five days after that.
