According to our Partners in News at ABC 21, 20-year-old Jacob Carreon-Hamilton pleaded guilty Thursday to charges of assisting a criminal, abuse of a corpse, and resisting law enforcement in the death of 55-year-old Shane Nguyen.

Nguyen went missing on April 23rd, and a Silver Alert was issued to help find him, but police say he had been murdered by 21-year-old Matthew Cramer of Elkhart County after he gave Cramer a ride to Fort Wayne. Carreon-Hamilton is accused of helping Cramer dismember the man’s body and then placing the remains in the man’s van.


  1. …and society declines…

    You can’t help anyone, anymore, without fearing for your personal well-being.
    Without morals and appreciation for life.. i suppose this is bound to happen.

    Something brought these two (pathetic excuses of life) to this. Society can be blamed for some of this, i am sure. But, i bet there is more to this unfortunate story… The Why? & How? they came to this.
    21 & 20 years of age?
    They have no respect for anyone, or anything.

    I wish Jacob and Matthew a speedy trip to their final Judgement Day!
