“As soon as the body was found, we started getting several tips from CrimeStoppers that helped to not only identify Sutton-Bubeck as the victim but to also identify Wiswell and Garcia as suspects,” said Brown. “We were also able to recover evidence and corroborate tips that eliminated other suspects and led me to believe that Wiswell and Garcia committed this crime.”

The manner of Sutton-Bubeck’s death has not yet been released by investigators.

Officials did say that Wiswell and Garcia were living in a shed in the backyard of the house where Sutton-Bubeck was buried during the time that he went missing.
