Stepfather of Man Arrested in Aleah Beckerle Case: Terrence Had Mental Issues

Eyewitness News spoke with the stepfather of Terrence Roach, Glen Eastwood, shortly after the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor's Office and the Evansville Police Department announced that Roach had been arrested in connection with the Aleah Beckerle case.

Roach faces charges of abuse of a corpse, burglary resulting in bodily injury, criminal confinement, kidnapping, and murder.

Eastwood called the news 'crazy' and said that he had asked Terrence about the situation when Aleah first came up missing.

Eyewitness News is told the house on South Bedford Ave. where the remains were discovered is next door to the house where Roach stayed. 

Eastwood said what saddened him the most was that when the news of Aleah had broken, he was worried there was a monster on his street. He said he's sad he knew that monster.

Eastwood also told us that Terrence denied any involvement with Aleah's disappearance when he asked him about it.

Eastwood said Terrence did have mental issues.

He described Terrence as more of a follower than a leader.

He said he's worried Terrence may have gone along with anything if he was asked to do so.
