Milwaukee police drop landfill search for body of Ebony Young

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - After three weeks of combing through garbage, Milwaukee Police have given their landfill search for a transgender rap artist who was murdered.

Sergeant Mark Stanmeyer said detectives had narrowed the area where Ebony Young’s remains were most likely to be located. But after tons of trash were moved and searched, officers could find no signs of Young’s body.

Stanmeyer says they’re disappointed – but they believe they have enough other evidence to convict 5 men who are charged with homicide. Search dogs, excavators, and landfill workers joined police in the search.

Young had been missing since New Year’s Day, and police said she was the victim of an internal gang dispute. Her body was thrown in a trash bin – but authorities didn’t know it until after it was hauled away, and that’s why the landfill search was necessary.

One of the defendants told police he thought Young was male, but officials said the victim changed genders to become a female.
