SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police say a man charged in the deaths of two Utah teenagers found down an abandoned mine shaft has discussed the slayings using a jail phone.
The Deseret News reported Tuesday a newly unsealed search warrant says 41-year-old Jerrod Baum has made more than 1,000 calls on a recorded line.
Police say in court documents she also mentioned exchanging Facebook messages about the case with Baum’s girlfriend, and investigators want to search her account.
Baum is charged with several counts, including aggravated kidnapping and murder. Prosecutors say he got angry and killed the teenage couple after they visited his girlfriend despite his warning her not to have male visitors.
Seventeen-year-old Brelynne “Breezy” Otteson and 18-year-old Riley Powell were missing for nearly three months before their bodies were found in March.
