CLIFTON FORGE, Va. (AP)—A North Carolina man faces homicide and fugitive from justice charges after police in western Virginia discovered a woman's body in his car's trunk.
Clifton Forge, Va., police arrested 19-year-old Enrico Luciano Mascaro, of Nags Head, on Friday after he returned to his parked 1996 Mustang. Chief Barry Balser said police found the body when they searched the trunk. The victim's name hasn't been released.
A Monday arraignment on the fugitive charge was postponed until 2 p.m. Tuesday in Alleghany County General District Court. Mascaro was expected to be extradited to Kitty Hawk, N.C.
Kitty Hawk police had issued a nationwide alert for Mascaro and 18-year-old Danielle Dennis-Towne of Steger, Ill., after finding a crime scene. Police used cell phone towers to track the Mustang to Clifton Forge.
