SHARON, Pa. (WYTV) – Arrest warrants have been issued for two people wanted in a death investigation in Sharon.
Police say James Clarke, 32, and Samantha Gregory, 24, are charged with abuse of a corpse and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.
The body of Dwyane Jordan was found in a vacant house on September 24 in the 1000 block of Baldwin Avenue.
