A tenant renting from a Jasper County woman is now suspected in her death.Rosalba Ricchio, 54, was last seen alive a week ago. Police searched her house in Wheatfield Township. They say her dogs were locked inside a bathroom. Ricchio's family says that's unusual since she rarely left the house without the dogs.

Investigators also say it appears she did not take her purse or her prescription medication.

On Monday, Jasper County authorities said Ricchio was found dead in Newton County, Indiana. The Jasper County Sheriff's Office said apparently Ricchio was allegedly abducted from her home by tenant Aaron Flynn.

Flynn eventually led authorities to Ricchio's body in a wooded area in Newton County.

Flynn has been charged with confinement in Jasper County. Murder charges are pending and the investigation continues/ Another suspect is also being sought.
