Police arrest 3 after death of Terre Haute radio personality
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP/WLFI) — Police say they've arrested three people in connection with the death of a Terre Haute radio personality.
News 18's sister station, WTHI-TV, reports Kathleen E. Featherstone, 25, and John Collins, 24, both from Terre Haute, along with Benjamin J. Selig, 28, of Rockville, are being held in connection to the death of Matt Leucking, who most recently worked for WFNB-FM.
The three are due in court Tuesday. According to WTHI-TV, Featherstone and Collins face preliminary charges of murder.
"We know Matt was a big loss for this community, and we'll do everything we can to get justice," Police Chief John Plasse said.
Investigators say officers found Luecking's body Monday at an apartment. An autopsy Tuesday revealed blunt force trauma as the cause of death.
His vehicle was missing and authorities found two men trying to use Luecking's bank card at a store in Vermillion County.
