Two men stand accused of dumping a missing South Jersey teenager's body in a rural area of Salem County.
Danyelle Minerva, of Atco, had been missing since October before tree trimmers found her body on Jan. 11 off Woodstown-Alloway Road in Alloway Township.
State Police arrested Jose Sosa-Ayala, 40, and Jose Felix-Sosa, 45, on Thursday and charged the men with disposing of Minerva's body.
Minerva died while at Sosa-Ayala's Bridgeton home in October, said police. After finding the 19-year-old dead, the men loaded her into Sosa-Ayala's 2005 Toyota Tundra and dumped her in the woods, said police.
The investigation into how Minerva died remained ongoing -- there were no obvious signs of trauma to the body. But, earlier, police said her death was being investigated as suspicious.
Her family and friends say on a Facebook page set up to find her that she hadn't been seen since Oct. 15. The page shared news of her death Tuesday night.
Both Bridgeton men were sent to Salem County Jail on conspiracy, desecration of human remains and endangerment charges unable to post bails of $600,000 for Sosa-Ayala and $500,000 for Felix-Sosa.
