Providence, RI — Police have confirmed that the body found in a backyard storage shed of a home in Rhode Island does belong to the autistic teen who went missing in Massachusetts last month.

Joseph Webster, 19, was last seen at a Motel 6 on March 13.  His family became increasingly worried when the teen never returned home because he had never stayed out overnight before.

He also suffered from mild autism and severe diabetes that required him to take insulin every eight hours. Even more distressing was the fact that Webster did not have enough insulin with him to survive the length of time he had been missing.

Police would eventually arrest 19-year-old James Howze and 22-year-old Lara Corey in connection to the teen’s disappearance, accusing the pair of assaulting Webster and stealing his car.

Corey had been staying in Room 214 at the Motel 6 where Webster was last seen and at the time he vanished. Prosecutors said blood and a shovel were found at the hotel and Howze had tried selling Webster’s car in Rhode Island.

On Monday, Howze was ordered held on $1 million bail on charges of assault and battery with a knife and car theft.

Corey (or Cori) was ordered held without bail on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, armed robbery, armed assault with intent to murder and car theft.

They both entered not guilty pleas.

The following afternoon, a canine unit discovered Webster’s body in a storage container in the backyard of a home not far from the home of the suspects.
