Until this point, the body of the second teen, 17-year-old Satori Dionne Williams, had not been located.

On Sunday, human remains were found on County Road 325 West just outside of Fairland. Police say they now believe the remains belong to Williams.

TIMELINE: This is how police believe the grisly Christmas Eve murders unfolded.

Investigators described a grisly scene at Watkins' house. A trail of blood was found leading around his home and to the garage of a vacant property next door. Inside Watkins' vehicle, police found "blood in just about every passenger compartment." Investigators also found what they believed to be brain matter near the sidewalk in front of his house.

Watkins faces additional charges of criminal confinement and impersonation of a public servant for allegedly handcuffing someone and telling them there would be a "bloodbath."

Watkins reportedly said at the time he was investigating a break-in at his house.  

Williams mother, Amber Partlow, said she doesn't feel any closure at the discovery of his body.

"My son was a blessing from the moment he came into this world," she said. "He was wonderful, and if you had met him you would have loved him. That is the kind of person he was."

Williams' former neighbor Lori Trobaugh had stronger words for the man accused of killing him.

"That man, I hope to God he rots in hell," she said. "And that is personal from me."
