Bodies of missing Michigan girl, suspected kidnapper found


NEWPORT, Mich. — The bodies of a missing teenage girl and a man were found in St. Charles Cemetery here, authorities said.

They are identified as Taylor Manley, 15, of Reed City, Mich, and Raymond Bush, 38, whose place of residence was uncertain. The teenager was the subject of an Amber Alert earlier Wednesday that said she was kidnapped by a stranger or acquaintance. Mr. Bush was a suspect in her disappearance.

On Wednesday evening, troopers acting on a lead found a vehicle parked in a cemetery in Newport, about 170 miles southeast of Reed City, which is in Osceola County south of Cadillac.

They say they entered the vehicle and found the pair dead inside. Troopers from the Monroe post of the Michigan State Police said other information on the deaths wasn't immediately available.
