Discovery of Aleah Beckerle’s body
Murray discovered Beckerle’s body back in March.
Murray said she and some friends were ‘bando hunting,’ which involves going inside abandoned houses to search for items that can be re-sold or refurbished.
South Bedford house
The house where Beckerle’s body was discovered was in the 1600 block of South Bedford in Evansville.
That house was actually torn down on Monday, according to Evansville Executive Director of Metropolitan Development Kelley Coures.
