missing people

The bodies of Raegan Elizabeth Day, 20, and Dustin R. Hartline, 28, missing from Pearl River since Feb. 15, were recovered Monday afternoon in what the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office is investigating as a double homicide.

The two were last seen in a blue 2011 Chevrolet Camaro — the same vehicle their bodies were recovered in by Sheriff’s Office divers at a Pearl River boat launch around 5 p.m. Monday.

WWL-TV reports that Sheriff Randy Smith said he has leads on possible suspects.

"It’s not the outcome we wanted for the family, and we are just glad that we can bring some closure to the family. It’s an active investigation. We do have some leads and some suspects and tips that we are following up on," Smith said.

An autopsy to determine the manner of death will be performed Tuesday, according to a spokesman for St. Tammany Parish Coroner Charles Preston.

The bodies were positively identified using tattoos, the spokesman said.
