Police are hunting for Cpl. Cesar Armando Laurean, 21, the Marine Maria Lauterbach accused of rape. Laurean, the suspect, is from Nevada, and was last seen on the Marine base around 4 a.m. Friday. He's said to be driving a black Dodge pickup with North Carolina license plate TRR1522.
Lauterbach's disappearance occurred before she was able to testify about the sexual assault. Upon investigation, Laurean's house showed signs of both blood spatter and cleanup, including fresh paint over stains. He'd also written a note to his wife saying that Lauterbach had come to his residence, cut her own throat, and that he had buried the body. The suspect is still at large.
