Amber Alert ends tragically

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Autopsies are planned on two Putnam County teenagers to determine how they died before their bodies were dumped in a roadside ditch.

That was the end of a story that began as an Amber Alert in the northwest Ohio town of Ottawa and led to Columbus before concluding on a country road Thursday.

A few hours after an AMBER Alert was issued for three teens missing from a trailer court in Ottawa, Columbus police took a 17-year-old boy into custody after the car the teens were in was found at a gas station on W. Broad Street at Hague Avenue.

That’s when Michael Aaron Fey told authorities where they could find the bodies of the two other boys who were with him when the alert was issued.

The bodies Blake Aaron Romes, 17, and his 14-year-old brother, Blaine, were found in a ditch near Ottawa.
