The boyfriend of a pregnant teenager who disappeared in 2012 has now been indicted in her murder, St. Petersburg police said this afternoon.
Morgan Martin was four months pregnant when she disappeared from her home wearing only pajamas and slippers. She was talking on her cell phone and told her family she was meeting someone outside.
The 17-year-old was never heard from again. Her body was never found.
Police Chief Anthony Holloway announced that Jacobee Flowers has been indicted on a first-degree murder charge. Morgan had previously identified Flowers as the father of her unborn child, but after her disappearance, he downplayed their relationship and denied being the father.
Holloway said detectives had pursued leads through the years but "everything continued to point to Flowers."
Morgan's mother made a tearful appearance at the press conference, thanking police for their ongoing efforts.
"There are so many kids out there that everybody has forgotten about and i just want to thank everybody here for not forgetting about my Morgan," Leah Martin sobbed.
Flowers, meanwhile, is already in prison after being sentenced for unrelated felony traffic charges. When confronted with news of the indictment, Holloway said Flowers had no reaction and refused to speak with detectives.
