LINTON, Ind. (WISH) - The suspects in the murder of a Linton teenager had decided they wanted to find a woman to rape and murder but they did not have a specific person in mind, according to court documents released Thursday.
The documents outline what happened to 19-year-old Katelyn Wolfe.
This 12 page probable cause affidavit includes a detailed confession from one of the two suspects in the case. 26-year-old Jordan Buskirk and 25-year-old Randal Crosley face multiple charges including murder and conspiracy to commit rape.
According to court documents, Buskirk says they went out and bought handcuffs, condoms and a 20 pound weight. The two men dealt drugs and knew Wolfe.
Police say in the early morning of June 6, they picked up Wolfe from her Linton home and drove around while getting high. Buskirk told police at some point he stopped the car so he and Crosely could murder Wolfe.
According to the probable cause affidavit, the two climbed on Wolfe, choked her, handcuffed her and duct-taped her mouth and legs.
Buskirk said Crosley placed his T-shirt over Wolfe's head and then duct taped her around the head and neck.
Buskirk admitted to choking Wolfe with a rope until she stopped moving.
According to the court records, the two men threw Wolfe's body in the trunk of their car and then drove around getting high.
During that time, police say Crosley used Wolfe's cell phone to send and receive text messages to his own phone and his wife's phone. He was hoping to cover his tracks.
Buskirk told police Crosley also posted an update on Wolfe's Facebook page and then destroyed the phone's SIM card.
The two men later tied a 20-pound weight to Wolfe's body and threw the body into a lake in Sullivan County.
It was those cell phone texts from Wolfe's phone that led police to question Crosley.
Both men are being held in the Greene County Jail and will make their first court appearance Friday morning.
